It’s Friday again. I did successfully make it back to the gym a few times this week. I’m trying not to beat myself up for not having gone every day. Those pesky high expectations of mine sure are hard to deal with.
It’s been a bit of a busy week, but with fun dispensed into it, I’m not complaining!
On to my progress this week:
Weight: 150.8 This isn’t bad. I’m maintaining my weight, but apparently have lost about 5 lbs from when I began weighing myself on this “getting fit again” journey. No complaints on my end.
Activities: This week, I attempted to attend 3 classes. On Monday, I had to leave after 15 minutes because Baby Boy was not handling being in KidKare very well. Tuesday and Wednesday I actually went alone, as both Baby Boy and Hun napped together. Tuesday’s class was a cardio-dance, felt a bit like Zumba, and Wednesday was a cardio-weight class. This morning, I’m still feeling it a bit. Good classes! I definitely worked hard on Wednesday!
Attendance: So, 2 successful days spent at the gym. Next week, I’m hoping to go at least 4 times.
Overall Progress: I went really pretty light with the weights in the cardio-weight class this week. I worked pretty hard, but didn’t push too much. As I mentioned, I do feel the workout from that day in my muscles a bit today, which is nice. Since I didn’t go to the gym for a couple of weeks, I definitely can tell the difference within my body. It seems a bit loose….
Personal Thoughts and Feelings: It definitely felt good to go to a couple of classes this week. As I figured, I did feel a bit awkward, but I took it in stride. Except for a little bit of beating up on myself for not having done more, I’m happy for the days I did go. I’m excited to go again next week and to see how I feel then! I couldn’t, in good conscience, make myself go yesterday. I was so extremely tired, I feared hurting myself or falling asleep while driving. I think I made a good decision there and I let go of that expectation, which is always a good thing! I feel like “Next week, Here I come!”.
