I got up this morning and after I tossed down a few cups of coffee, I headed out to the gym. I was actually surprised that I had more energy than usual since I didn’t sleep well last night. When I arrived at the gym, I thought that I should give the elliptical a try just to mix things up a bit. Climbing up on this thing was the moment that I was going to find out whether or not Planet Fitness was truly a “Judgement Free Zone” as they promote in their advertizing. I got up on that thing but I can’t say that I did so with grace. I imagine
that I looked more like a newborn giraffe trying to steady itself shortly after birth. A few minutes into my workout I was wondering what in the world I had been thinking. I lasted 12 minutes before throwing in the towel.
Since my thighs were already feeling pain from the elliptical, I decided that today would be “leg day”. If you aren’t familiar with the term “leg day”, it is the day at the gym you spend your time working on your legs. This may also be known as purgatory. By the time I walked out of the gym I had found Jesus and was praying for healing.
I may need a day of rest tomorrow.
When I began working out 6 days ago, I got on the scale for a base weight. I checked my weight today and I have lost about 3 lbs. I consider that to be a pretty good start. With that being said, I do not want to get tangled up in the numbers. I am not “dieting”, I am changing my lifestyle. I would say my eating is more paleo if you break it down, however, I am not counting calories. My journey is about making healthier choices and finding the humor along the path. There is ALWAYS humor. 😉
No Instant Pot cooking tonight but more healthy recipes to come.
