With our recent vacation schedule and overall sense of laziness, I have not made it to the gym in a few weeks. Today, however, I got myself up and out of bed, JJ bathed and dressed and made the nearly 25 minute drive to 24 hour fitness. All odds seemed against me as I got the Kids Club there and had to put JJ's names on a waiting list (they are pretty good about limiting the child to provider ratio). We sat and played until the numbers worked and I left JJ to get my work out on. As I rode the bike and started to feel the burn, I felt so energized and excited about being back at the gym. I had been so good about making the gym part of my routine before Bahamas, but had definitely fallen off the proverbial wagon since, that the workout did wonders for my mood and well-being. So, here is my message. I am re-committing myself right now exercise and healthy eating. Not just for aesthetic purposes, but for overall wellness. You know how you get that build of garbage in your system and you start to feel lathargic and miserable?? That has already started to melt away.. It has a ton to do with eating too, but for now, I am celebrating my mini-victory over myself to get back to the gym. YAY for me!
