I was going to mention how I had red Thai curry for dinner and it wasn’t too spicy for me (big achievement). I was going to point out that you should check out my new 99 before 3o page (see #59!). And I was going to mention that it’s a snow globe outside.
But instead, I think I will just talk about how excited I am right now and how much I have missed working out.
Today on my lunch break I braved the snow to buy a new pair of sneakers. I have never owned a pair of Saucony sneakers before, but they felt good when I put them on. Plus, they are pretty.
My friend was over until 9, and I almost decided to push my return to the gym back to tomorrow. My new sneaks were begging to be tried out, though, and I am glad I gave them a spin. I hit up the elliptical for my alloted 10 minutes and followed that with my leg drills from PT, 300 crunches, and some arm weights. I rarely do arm weights, so it was actually the hardest part of the workout. I made sure not push myself on the elliptical, because I have been instructed not to, but I did push myself on the crunches and arm weights. Guess what? It felt great. I don’t know why I stopped working out for so long in law school. It’s such a great rush to push yourself and achieve your goals. Even if your goals are just one more set of bicep curls, it’s still instant achievement. I love the flow of endorphins I am feeling now, that I have been aching for since I have been in PT. I really have been moody without exercise and just once quick trip to the gym has me all giddy.
The shoes are so far so good. I ran around a little to test them out because its hard to tell on elliptical. I felt a little bit like I was running on bouncy clouds, but that’s probably because my old sneakers were about five years old (shameful). Now, I am icing my knees, so that hopefully this gym love affair can continue.
How do you feel after a good workout?
