Well, I made it to the gym again this morning. Yeah, me! Oy, but I’m tired and sore.
I’m trying to think about what I really want to write about here. I have lots of thoughts about how the workouts are going and my thoughts about heart rate and the advantages of going to the gym so early. But I’m afraid it’s something that would only interest me. I have a journal where I’ve been writing notes like that, so I might just take it over there. But I know that a lot of you actually are interested in this, at least a little, so I’m trying to find a balanced middle.
You asked about what you could do to help encourage me. I’ve been trying to think of what would be the best ways to do that. So far I’ve only got two things.
- I would really love to get some good recipes. I’m looking for new meals that involve less carbs and more fresh veggies and I’d love some recommendations.
- When we chat, ask how my work-out went. Don’t ask *if* I went, but ask *how* it went. If I didn’t go, I’ll tell you that and why, but I’d rather start with the assumption that I’m going rather than the assumption that I’m not.
I do have a whole other list, though, mostly of things that I wish people wouldn’t do. I wrote it last night while I was thinking about the whole thing, but I want to put it up as a separate post. And because I want you all to read this post first, before reading that one, I’ll wait until tomorrow before I post it.
I want you all to read this one before reading that one because I want to make sure that you know that I’m not trying to upset anyone. I’m not trying to get down on anyone or make you feel bad. I’m just addressing things that I wish people would consider, things that have been frustrating and discouraging to me. Things that I doubt other people even realize have that effect on me. And I know that I’m sensitive about this, so I apologize in advance if something I write comes across as being really thin-skinned. But maybe they’re things that you’ve thought about, too. And maybe my mentioning them will make you think a little bit. And maybe they’ll just come across as so obvious that you’ll wonder why I felt the need to bring them up at all. Either way, I wanted to preface that post by letting you all know that I’m not pegging anyone. I’m just venting a little.
And now I’m going to make you wait until tomorrow before you get to see what I’m even talking about. I’m so mean!! 🙂
I’m going to the gym again tomorrow morning. In the future, I’ll tend to go to the gym Friday afternoons instead of in the morning, since I don’t work in the afternoon. But we’re heading out of town sometime tomorrow afternoon to spend time with family near Orlando. I’m still not totally clear on what we’re doing. But I know we’re going! It should be fun. But if I don’t answer my phone, that’s the reason right there. We’ll be driving back on Sunday so Justin and I can go to work on Monday morning.
And that’s the plan!
I hope you’re all having a fantastic day! I’m going to sit here and eat my soup and wait for my mother-in-law to call so I can go meet her at the airport.
