Despite the fact that the scales showed a pretty impressive lost last week (and still continue on a delightful decline), I have to admit that I haven’t been to the gym in more than a week. It started off as me taking it easy and just going on a few walks, since I was still sore from the accident, but my official planned return to the gym Thursday was cancelled due to work. Friday I ran out of time. This weekend, I was tired and cranky and just didn’t feel like it.
Well, here is it Monday, and I’m still tired and a little cranky. I suspect this is because I have not been to the gym.
I’m dreading it, but I WILL be going to the Total Body Conditioning class tonight. And tomorrow I’m going on a long walk (and maybe also a bike ride) outside since it’s supposed to be beautiful. Wednesday is spin & abs class with a weight circuit thrown in for good measure. Thursday: another spin class. Friday, I’ll take a well-deserved rest, but it’s back in the gym Saturday or Sunday for another workout (weights & cardio).
I may not need to work out in order to make the scale budge, but I DO need it to help my attitude improve.
Also, I’ve been slipping up with the no caffeine thing. This morning marked my return to caffeine free living.
