I’m back from the gym – and I had a great workout. Let me rephrase that. I had an awesome workout – mainly because I actually had a workout.
It’s been a while since I really hit it hard at the gym, and it felt good to work my arms, do some stretches, and get in a good 30 minutes on the “treader”. It’s a little depressing, realizing that I’m not in the same shape I was in this time last year, but there’s nothing I can do about yesterday – I can only focus on today – and prepare for tomorrow.
I did pretty well on my diet, except for the fact that I ate a bit more than I had planned. The kids are heading back to school tomorrow, so I should be able to get back into a normal “groove” and schedule.
2010 is already feeling 50 times more positive than did 2009. I don’t know what it was, but 2009 was just so….. something. Anyway. Onward and upward we must travel.
I’ve been very, very busy the past three or four days, and it felt great to be back in the gym. Even if the exercising didn’t help me lose weight (which it does, when I actually stick to it), it always makes me feel better. A good run or workout might be God’s natural anti-depressant. Rock on.
