I’ve even been getting up around 7ish (okay this morning I got up at 8:30). Why? So I can go to the gym and workout and turn my scrawny self into something reasonably toned. It’s nice be a strong skinny person. *evil laugh* Right now I’m a weakling, but hopefully this will change.
What has caused this change in my routine? New Years Resolution? Hardly. It’s called: I want to work out, and now I have the time to get a routine started. I despise the “weight loss/go to the gym” Resolution. Very few people stick with it. I’m going because the wonderful boyfriend goes all the time and who better to go with than Mr. Gym-holic. Seriously. I love going with him because it means I have someone who can show me how to use the free weights, and also knows machines and workout routines very well.
I’ll admit, I’m pushing myself to go a bit more than perhaps I should. Sundays and Wednesdays are my days off. Possibly not even then. At least four days a week I shall be working on weights. Other times I’ll do cardio. If I have to go to the gym and do these workouts, then Grant will have to learn proper stretching. That’s my deal. So far, we’re doing well.
My back is stiff. My thighs feel like something is stabbity stabbing some tendons when I go up and down stairs. I’m STARVING.
I’ve forgotten how much working out makes me want to eat eat eat eat eat. So I’m eating a snack here and there and drinking a crapton of water.
I’m also still getting over a cold (i.e. it’s not as bad as it was, but it’s not gone), so I’m taking things WAY lighter than I could. No sense in straining myself.
Okay, I have a Case Study to write up and I can’t even start to think about it. Time to get crackin!
I wonder how well this routine will work once classes start on the 28th! EEK!
