And God Laughed...

I went to the gym yesterday.

Have you stopped laughing yet?

First, you know it's bad if you go to the gym to "cool off." Our downstairs window a/c is not working and it has been wicked hot (had to get "wicked" in before we move). So that finally motivated me to drive to the base because the gym has air conditioning. Of course, now I'm kicking myself for not going sooner. They have a nice room with a handful of cardio machines and dumbells and a place for your kids to play!!!! It was great because I could watch them while I was on the treadmill. Until a couple of months ago, we belonged to a gym that was closer, but I never felt comfortable leaving my kids at their daycare, which is what I'll use as my excuse for not going ;)

Anyways, back to God laughing. You know, the whole thing about making plans...Well, I went with what I thought was a realistic goal of what I could run. Yeah right! Without going into the gory details, I'll just say it was a sad realization of how out of shape I am. Needless to say, I have reevaluated some of my goals. Well, maybe not my goals so much as the timeline in which to achieve them. But, looking at the brightside, I am just happy I got off my rear end and went to the gym and it was a good experience for everyone involved. Now let's just hope I can find something as great when we move.

Good for you going! Have you seen the Couch to 5K Running Program?

Not that you have to run a 5K, but it's a good way to go from walking to running, if you like!
