Back to the Gym...day 2

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Well...it went MUCH better today. 60 minutes of Spin, 30 minutes of Ab class...and I felt pretty great when I was done! I did Spin in a lower gear(s), but I got it done. :) I want to do more today, but I'm trying to do my best to ease back into it, and keep to a more reasonable pace. If nothing else, I hope to keep it at no more than an hour of "hard" cardio a day, no more than 5 days a week, and give myself an "as needed" pass for doing things like walking or hiking. I don't want to be sedentary, but yes, I was doing too much. (I have to keep hammering this into my head lest I forget!) I'm feeling my panic decrease today...I'll be able to get back into it, and I'm not going to go crazy with it again! (At least not every week.) :)

I made a lovely yellow cake with white chocolate buttercream icing and strawberry filling (all homemade!). The decorations ended up being done by my 10 year old, so it's not perfect, but we had fun!

On tomorrow's gym agenda...run!! I haven't run in two weeks now, so I'm not expecting great things...I just want to get through an hour of run 5, walk 3 to get myself back on track!

    Fun is better than perfect! Glad you could enjoy the activity with your daughter.

    Sounds like the exercise is getting back to a more reasonable feeling too. Knew you could do it!

    Girl, if that is taking it easy I hate to see what is hard. You are so amazing to me. Welcome back by the way. You were definitely missed. Keep up the great work and good luck with your running too. I am running/walking too. IT feels good every time I push myself a little harder; a little farther. I was looking over my times this month and realized my time has been steadily decreasing all month.

    Sounds like you've got it all together. Great idea easing back into it. I tried jumping back in this fall after time off - I couldn't walk the next day.

    You're doing great.

    You're being very smart about it all, easing back into it. The decorating being family time sounds lovely!
