Back to the Gym today
So I've been lazy... uuuummm... since the kids went back to school in the fall. I quit going to the gym on a regular basis... really the only I consistantly went was during the ice storm when we lost electricity for 10 days, I went & took showers there. Today I returned! While I didn't break any records, I am pretty proud of myself for just getting ON the treadmill and staying there for 30 minutes! And I tried really hard to do it right too.... 5 minute warm up of walking (almost at my normal pace), the 20 minutes of various incline & speed combos changing it up anywhere from 1 to 3 minutes, followed by a 5 minute cool down where I felt like an ass for going sooooo slow. No joke here, I only went 1.2 miles.... that's just sad! I'm trying to find someone to meet me at the gym for lunchtime workouts, but it will probably be like all the times before... no success. I'm determined to keep going, but something has already come up so that I can't go tomorrow - go figure! But maybe there's a good side to it... the appraiser is supposed to be at the house at 8:30 in the morning - cross you fingers for us!!!
