Well, the struggle to gain back my cardiovascular capacity has been quite a struggle. Not only am I carrying around the most weight I’ve ever carried but I haven’t been uncomfortable in clothes for a long time. The biggest problem I’ve always had has been eating enough to SURVIVE, not living to eat. The first week I really started back to working out was certainly rough. I’ve been signing up for classes at the gym which has given me an “appointment” to workout. On top of the classes (spinning/cycling, hot yoga, and body pump/strength training) I’ve been getting to the gym about 20-30 minutes early to walk/run before class. I’ve even started to feel bad for taking a day off of working out…a good thing! It’s pretty amazing how long it takes to become “fit” and how easily it is to undo everything.
I started my second semester on Tuesday and have turned in my substitute teaching application. Hopefully this semester will be less stressful than the last! Other than that, the doggies and I have just been hanging out together and getting a lot of random things done from my “to do” list. My list has dwindled so far that I was able to see a movie with Rod’s mom and Nick. True Grit is definitely worth seeing! Rod and I will be buying that DVD. I haven’t seen the original movie but Rod says they held true to the plot and quality of the movie.
