Day 4 Back in the morning

Tuesday, August 04, 2015

I made it to the gym again this morning shortly after 5. I stuck with it even when I wanted to quit (recumbent ellipitical) because I'd forgotten my headphones. Really did consider tossing in the towel after 5 minutes out of sheer boredom.

But I decided not to quit, made due with closed captioning and got my heart rate up higher for a longer period than I did yesterday. Did my 15 with a 3 minute cool down.

Made the 2nd bus - and actually just missed the first bus by a few minutes. There is no reason why - on days I can't work out for longer after work - that I can't go beforehand. No good reason anyway. It is totally do-able.

Already I can tell what junk food does to my body. I'm not focusing on diet changes at this time but I can easily see how sluggish I get and sick to my stomach I feel. Not worth it.

Tonight we're going to a concert as a late birthday outing. I expect to be tired after getting to bed late. Maybe it's a good thing I have my personal trainer appt tomorrow afternoon. I can sleep in a tiny bit in the morning.

Feeling a little concerned that her plan pushes me too hard, too fast. If it feels like work I won't want to do it. Jumping into the deep end with lofty goals doesn't work for me. I feel too overwhelmed and frankly - while I do want to exercise and be healthier I'm more interested in a moderate investment of effort. I'm sure that sounds terrible. I'm willing to go and work but not work hard. I don't want to get into a plan where my mind and body is silently screaming "I hate this!". I guess we'll see.
