Fist Day Back Is Always the Hardest (So They Say)

Standard

First day back at the gym

Okay so I did it. I am extra proud of myself because it is snowing and the roads here weren’t exactly treated properly but I was determined not to let that stop me from going back to the gym today. I am so happy that I did and I was so excited. I even befriended a trainer already who helped get me started (the right way). 

I will say that I had greatly overestimated how much I would be able to do on my first day back. I had it written out and everything. But once I got to it I discovered just how out of shape I had gotten and that I was not going to be able to do the cardio machines at the length of time or the intensity that I had initially planned. I hung in there for a pretty decent length of time though and I am even more excited to go back tomorrow. 

I am not going to lie and say that I don’t hope to be able to do a little more tomorrow but I know that going is the first part of the battle and that once I get past that hurdle then nothing can stop me.
