This Journey Called #PLOT
May 30th, 2012
Today was the day! I worked out for two hours at the gym. I mixed it up between the elliptical, treadmill, and bike. It was rough going at first, my body was rebelling big time. Eventually I made it through and the workout became fun. Having my own source of entertainment was definitely a plus. My MP3 player has video capability, so I spent a majority of the time watching the PDS. It would be awesome if Source Fed videos were on iTunes as well. *hint hint* It would motivate me to stay on the elliptical. One thing bringing me down: how the machines require me to cling to the heart rate monitor. I want to swing my arms on the treadmill! It also hurts my hands. I don't know if this is carpal tunnel or tendinitis acting up.
My food intake was not enough for the amount of exercise. I thought cottage cheese and blueberries would be a nutritious enough meal (with a few chips), but no. After about an hour and a half into the routine, my body was becoming jittery. The last few minutes my body felt weak. Every move I made felt like slow motion. While I am starving right now, I am also completely exhausted. I don't know what to eat after a workout. *shrug* Any suggestions?
Tomorrow the plan is to work out with a friend after work. I don't know what she is in the mood for, but I hope to spend at least an hour at the gym. Nothing is preventing me from staying if she wants to leave early...
Oh, almost forgot, I weighed myself today. It's never a fun experience. Especially since it's in a public area of the women's restroom/changing area, so I have to keep my clothes on. It's been a debate to whether or not I feel comfortable posting my weight in a public fashion. There will be a before picture today. A picture is worth a thousand words. Maybe instead of posting my weight, I will just say I wish to lose 12 lbs.
