Back to the gym...day 1.

Monday, January 30, 2012

45 minutes on the elliptical, low resistance. It sucked. It's not that it was hard, I just didn't feel like doing it. I had lofty plans to go back later in the evening for Body Pump and Kickboxing, and never made it...I started to feel pretty run down about 2 hours after I left the gym in the morning, and it helped to remind me that I'm supposed to be taking it easy. :) On the agenda for tomorrow...Spin, but on low resistance, and ab class. And nothing more... :)

In other news, I'm getting obsessed with cake decorating again (just finished watching the finale of "The Next Great Baker"). I'm pretty good at it, but have gotten away from it since deciding to "get healthy"...which wasn't necessarily a bad thing. It's very easy to eat ridiculous amounts of cake and icing while deocrating...but I really do miss the activity itself. It is a pretty good creative outlet, and I just find it to be relaxing. I'm going to allow myself to decorate a few cakes tomorrow to see if I can't get it out of my system. :) I've already made the cakes and a few cupcakes (cooling on the stove now)...and I'm proud to say that I wasn't tempted to eat the batter!! I might be able to make this work after all. :)

    Remember that you're "rebuilding" at they gym - you're off to a great re-start- keep it fun : ) - you want to enjoy yourself.

    The cake decorating sounds like a beautiful and artistic skill. I admire your strength in not taste testing as you deco - I would be soooooooo into that icing! You are a strong - in both the physical and mental sense! - woman!!

    Have a great week!

    Well done getting to the gym.
    You are amazing not eating such temptations. Could you research some of teh lovely modelling products and take that up instead. Not exactly cake decorating but creative and not tempting to eat unless you model food items that look realistic. Have a great session at the gym tomorrow.

    Way to go on getting back to the gym. 45 minutes on the big E machine is no simple task.

    I have a cousin who does cake decorating and loves it! Such a great hobbie!
