Getting Back on the Horse

So, I decided to kick myself into gear and try to shake off this depressing pity party I’ve been having. So, I went back to the gym last night. First time in awhile ~ almost a month, I think. I’ve still been walking but that’s not nearly what I usually do. I’m one of those marathon exercisers. At least an hour everyday ~~ plus 2+ hours at least twice a week. Yeah, I haven’t been doing it. Which, in hindsight, is probably causing the pity party. Really. No endorphins make for a Downer Dev.

I hopped on that elliptical machine. Thought I’d do about 30 minutes. 30 minutes came and went, and I thought why not try for 45? So, 45 minutes came and went, and I thought why not got for an hour? So, that’s what I did. An hour on the elliptical. I skipped the weights ~ Will do that tomorrow. But, I didn’t think an hour was too bad considering I hadn’t done it in so long ~ I really thought I’d have trouble even getting the 30 minutes in.

Go me.

  1. good for you! I like the ellipitcal. My problem is I get bored. So I have to find a way to keep me on there. We don’t have a tv in the room and reading while on it make me dizzy. lol.Keep up the good work.

  2. Izzy ~ I can’t watch tv while working out, I get sidetracked ๐Ÿ™‚ Instead, I have an mp3 player just full of good anger music that’s great to sweat too. I can’t read while doing it either ~ I can’t hold onto the book without losing my balance ๐Ÿ™‚Holly ~ When I’m motivated, I’ll exercise everyday. But there are also the times when I could give a rip. I try to have as few of those as possible. I feel better when I exercise, it’s just the whole doing it factor that gets to me. I have to be disciplined, or I wouldn’t ever do it ๐Ÿ™‚ Trust me, I’d much rather plop down on my couch and read ~ there’s just few hours to do that during the week.

  3. Wow! I’m impressed.I haven’t been doing a blasted thing. I need to start back on the treadmill and we’re going to rejoin the YMCA so I can get back to swimming – now that my boobs will stay in one place. :o)You and me – we’re gonna be hot next summer!

  4. Yeah for Dev. You’ve done so well for yourself the past year. You’ve got so much to be proud of. I’m still swimming three times a week. Sometimes I want to just blow it off but then I go and am so glad I did. Feels good…
