Yep. That was me today.
I finally got to the gym. I was supposed to go Wednesday, but my neck decided not to work for a few days. They even let me restart my free week since I couldn’t get there. Good people.
I thought I was going to be really intimidated. I had actually talked myself out of going earlier in the day. (I also took precisely 75 minutes to get to work when it normally takes me 20. I hate snow. I spent all 75 of those minutes figuring out how to move back south. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.) Truth be told, I only went because I was so freezing after running my cash box back to the office after my shift was over.
The girls at the reception desk were beyond friendly. One even gave me a tour since I didn’t get one when I signed up. I was really impressed.
I did the treadmill at 3.5 (When I first started working out, I couldn’t get past 1.5 without feeling like death. True story) for 15 minutes, twice. Between those, I did the elliptical for 15 minutes, this stepper thing of doom for 20 minutes, and half of the weight circuit.
I spent 85% of the weight circuit laughing at myself. I think I drew attention. All the old people there loved me. They’re right to do so. I’m quite lovable.
After that, I sat in my car with the windows down – getting snow in the face – for like 10 minutes and entered all of my workout to figure out how much I burned. I burned twice as much as I had ate today (Yogurt + Kashi), which is probably why I was a bit dizzy feeling when I was sitting in the car. Nothing too bad, honestly. I should probably rethink not-eating before I work out next time.
Anyway. Not once did I feel out of place or anything like I thought I would. It was a good day.
I’m excited for tomorrow. If it’s open. I’m excited for Monday at the least.
Also: Weigh in: 288. Down 3 pounds for the first week of the year. Not bad at all.
