A surreal weekend!
Friday evening was my first non-trial class at the new fitness center I recently joined. Coworker did not show. Small panic attack on the inside. Breathed deep, got my heart rate monitor on, with the help of the female trainer, and got on a trea... Read more

I May Join A Gym
I have belonged to gyms in the past. I was a regular at Bally with my daughter years ago. I remember being SO self-conscious. It was a great feeling when I finally realized nobody cared what I looked like or what I was doing, they were all focus... Read more

I got 'er done! I'm really working on not letting work get to me. Come on Kel, I told myself as I packed my gym bag this morning, everybody has draining days. No reason to veg on the couch.
