in a bad shape

I went to the gym today to work out with the trainer. I went before Christmas, but I’ve missed a lot with my parents being in the hospital and all that. I’ve just been neglecting going because it takes up time I didn’t feel like I had. I found out how much missing the gym can hurt when you were just starting to get into better shape. I was slow, weak, and sloppy. I only did 15 minutes on the elliptical, and I know my chest and abs are going to hate me tomorrow. I’ve really got to start going again. I was really starting to feel good for a bit, there, when I was going every day. It shouldn’t take me too long to get back into feeling good about it. I just need to go habitually for it to happen. Get those endorphins kicking again!

I’ve been sleeping a lot lately. I think its somewhat making up for the lack of really restful sleep I didn’t get there for a while. I’ve also had this nasty headache all day. I’m wondering if I’m getting headaches from taking too much headache medicine. That would really suck. I do turn to excedrine rather quickly when my head starts to hurt, so I suppose its possible. It hasn’t helped today.

I haven’t decided whether I want to make a new years resolution or not. I suppose I should decide soon. I’m kinda eh on the whole new years resolution thing anyway. I mean, what about a new calendar says you should change? Resolutions can be made any time if you really want to make one, so what’s so special about new years resolutions? Plus, the stigma around them alone generally means they’ll get broken. They were meant to be. Plus, people always make difficult resolutions, like weight loss and exercise? Why not make a fun resolution like “I will eat at least one cookie every day?” That all being said, I’m sure I’ll come up with a resolution.

What about you? Do you have a resolution you’d like to share with me? (Yes I’m begging for comments!)

One thought on “in a bad shape

  1. I don’t really do resolutions, either. I always say i’m going to finally finish losing the last of this weight and i never do. Maybe I will this year. I could also try being more patient, but I’m already getting impatient thinking about how hard that will be.

    You know the gym can be very helpful when you’re stressed. Not like I should talk- I didn’t go when I was really stressed this fall either, and am just now recovering. But from now on I will be sure to remind myself how cathartic a good workout can be, because I gained like, 15 pounds! They weren’t easy to re-lose, either 🙂
