It’s raining it’s pouring! And the desert is wet! Yay!
Today I returned to the gym. I haven’t gone since school started. The first week of school I was too exhausted at the end of the day. Then I re-injured my knee and could barely walk, let alone exercise. By the time my knee healed I was liking my new lazy routine. Shame on me.
I probably wouldn’t have returned to the gym today, but on Tuesday one of the teachers on my team mentioned the gym. I asked her what time she went — right after school — and I suggested we go together. Since I was scheduled to lead the Wednesday night prayer and praise service at church, tonight was the first night we attended together.
I weighed in to see how much damage I’d done during my month and a half absence. I actually lost 1.5 pounds. Okay, maybe it isn’t a major accomplishment, but hey, it is better than gaining.
I didn’t do the tape measure thing. The scales were traumatic enough. I stretched in, made three trips around the circuit — talking all the while — and stretched out. I didn’t raise my heart beat more than 21/10, but I still think I did pretty well for my first day back.
Now, let’s see how I feel about tomorrow morning.
