Today I went to the gym with my friend Jay. She's super into nutrition and working out so she took me around the weight room and showed me the ropes. I'd been in weight rooms before but they've always kinda intimidated me. Today was really no different. Even though I have a pretty strong lower half, I have the upper body strength of a kitten. Jay pushed me really hard and right now I feel like my arms are made of wet noodles.
We started out on the treadmill for 20 minutes, then moved into the weight room where we did chest, back, triceps, biceps, quads, hamstrings and shoulders...OUCH. I just may not be able to move tomorrow.
I weighed in on Monday instead of Sunday because I had a CPR course I had to do all day on Sunday that I completely forgot about. Let me tell you that a 6 hour course involves a lot of work when you're being re-certified in CPR. Anyways, when I weighed in, I came in at 293.0, a 6lb loss over when I weighed before I began counting calories again. Not too shabby at all. Now if I can only keep consistently dropping weight and no surprise gains like the one that completely threw me for a loop. I'd prefer that that not happen again thank you very much.
The holiday season has only just begun and I'm already stressed about it. I'm just hoping for the strength to get through it without completely losing my mind. We'll see how it goes!
