Hello everyone, I just wanted to share about how I had forgotten what certain things were like..and how much I’ve missed them. I had forgotten how much I like certain veggies! I cooked the bbq chicken last night (which was so good by the way) and I also steamed some green peas. I took that first bite of those tender little peas with a tad of butter on them, and it was so scrumptious. I had forgotten how good other veggies are besides potatos and french fries don’t count.
Another thing I forgot? How good it felt to workout and get really sweaty! I went last night to the gym. I didn’t think I was going to because traffic was horrendous on the way home. I was seriously yelling at other drivers like they could hear me. 🙂 So, I was really frustrated and it took me over an hour to make a usual 20 minute drive, but I thought right now as much aggression as I have, I need to go to the gym. It was packed in there. I guess everyone decided this would be the year to get healthy. So, I had a mini workout just having to walk the what seemed like a mile to get to the gym because I had to park so far away. When I got in the only cardio equipment open was a stationary bike. I hopped on and started pedaling. Of course the girl beside me was on a 9 tension and I thought I could totally handle a 5..yeah that didn’t last 5 minutes and I turned down the resistance to 2. But, I did last 30 minutes on the bike riding over 5 miles! Needless to say my buttocks are really, really sore. But, I had forgotten the way it feels to be pedaling your heart out and keep pushing yourself..you’re at 15 go to 20..you’re at 20; you can make it to 30 minutes. And, then the happiness when you surpass what you thought you could physically. Ahh..it’s so nice. I’ll be going back tonight, but I think I will wait until later in the evening after the 5 o’clock rush. I think I’ll go home and eat dinner first and then go to the gym about 8. Maybe it won’t be so packed then. I couldn’t get to any of the weight machines because there were people waiting for them.
But, it’s nice to remember certain feelings. I’m also glad I have this blog to look back on and see what it’s like when I’m eating right and exercising, how much more positive my outlook is. 🙂 I hope everyone else has a great day!
