Moving along again.

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Well, I'm moving forward again. At least that is how it feels right now. Summer wasn't what I expected, but life is still good - I have no serious complaints or concerns.

Renewed my long unused Bally's membership and actually used it (I had been going to another facility near by that closed August 10th). So, today was my first day back at working out, and yes it was good. Didn't do too much, because I have too much to do tomorrow to be too sore, but I am definately making a move in the right direction. Elliptical, and some light weight machines.

I kind of feel a renewed sense of excitement too. It is strange, even as I think about it. Excited about having a gym membership? Excited about being able to go work out when ever I want to. That feeling also makes me feel more hopeful - that I am actually going to reach my goal.

Here I have to make some confessions (not sure that is the right word). The only health problem I have is my weight. My BP is great. My cholesterol isn't high. No where near diabetes. My asthma is very much under control. Over the last couple of months, Even my stress levels are well controlled (thanks to workouts and some other life changes). I haven't fallen too far behind, but the scale started to creep up a bit. That is one way to get motivated to make a decision.

So, when I lose the last 10 pounds, I am going to feel like ... I dunno. Probably like, "okay, what next?" But I don't need to go there yet. For now I am just going back to doing my workouts, and eating right again (stopped tracking for awhile). Then I need to make something happen. Something is bound to if I just do things differently.

Here is to moving onward on this journey. ! emoticon Make some room, I'm getting back on the wagon. I'll see you at the gym!

    Which Bally did you go to? I know they closed the club in Strongsville. I go to the club in Broadview Heights and have noticed several "new" faces there and I imagine some are from the club in Strongsville.
