I went to the gym tonight for the first time in, I don't know, forever. It was just one of those things that I did not got for a few days because I was super tired. Then it was hard with Vin being in school 2 nights a week so the only time I could really go meant that we never saw each other. Then I had toe nail surgery. Then I sprained my ankle. In between Lilly would be sick. I just stopped going. Because, you know the feeling, I was embarrassed to go back and I was feeling fatter and more out of shape than ever. Tonight I left Lilly's room before 9pm, which is a huge feat as of late. So instead of making up the excuse that it is too late and that I won't have time to do a full workout, I was just going to go. And I did. I did the elliptical for 25 minutes and I worked it hard.

A woman who I would often see at the gym was also there. I noticed that she may have lost a few pounds or toned up a bit. I was tempted to have a pity party that I too would have lost weight if I had continued going to the gym. But I stopped it in its tracks and decided to think that I can also lose some weight if I continue to workout regularly. Hooray for me! That small change in thinking is a big change for me.

I was doing some working out on the wii and have increased my activity just by being home for the summer. However, I strongly feel that I need to go to the gym for that mental break. I could work out in my house, but there are other things I could also be doing. (Cleaning up from dinner, laundry, vacuuming, reading for work, you catch my drift) At the gym, I plug my ipod in and GO! It helps clear my mind and my stress and rids my mind of feelings of being overwhelmed. If only they had babysitting....
