Winter sucks the life out of everything.

I am so sick of it. Fucking gray skies day after day....cold chills, slippery walks, and slop everywhere.

A day off....and I am taking it and going to enjoy the hell out of it. I am stiff, sore in muscles I didn't know existed...there is no way I can stop this, because in order to ever start again, would mean a repeat of the pain. Maybe that how this gym makes their money, knowing full well no one wants to "start over."

Never starting over, I have started and can't stop.

Today is my reward.

second time at de-friending

What can I say....first time I cratered and let her back in, but then this little voice inside my head said....WHY?

She shares nothing. It's like she is some sort of info gathering spy for her own enjoyment. I like relationships that are two way, never have been much into leeches.

Do you think she will dare to ask why she has been de-friended twice???

That would take some balls. (IMO)

crack of dawn workout - w.o. #3

To get there, which is only 7 minutes away, I have to at least wake up and get something so I don't pass out, try to hydrate, so I don't pass out. It was rough today. Got pretty red in the face, but didn't pass out.

Today was the one work out that we will repeat for comparison at the end of the 6 week session. Five sets: rowing for a minute, sit-ups for a minute, squats for a minute , 30 second rest....repeat. I was dead at the end.

I have the rest of today off , Sunday off and Monday off...back to the gym on Tuesday.

If I didn't have Bill making me do this I would still be thinking about it. Everyone is so very nice there, and I am thankful to my pal Libby for telling me all about this place!

Cross-Fit chronicles - 2nd Day.

Okay, so I really thought that I was not going to be able to do the second workout, but low and behold I did fine. I didn't do great but for me it was outstanding. I left feeling fairly confident which was nice. I am really sore but it is becoming tolerable.

This will work, I know I will get stronger because you can do this sort of stuff over and over again and do anything but improve!! (It's possible the owner is in his 40's)

Above is Jessie, the dog-owner of the gym. :)

"Choose to align yourself with people who are like-minded in their search for simplified inspiration. Give those who find fault or who are confrontational a silent blessing and remove yourself from their energy as quickly as possible. Your life is simplified enormously when you don’t have to defend yourself to anyone, and when you receive support rather than criticism." - Dr. Wayne Dyer

day off

Yeah.. sore muscles. That's my comment. I don't know how I am going to be able to do anything tomorrow night at class. Shoot - I can't even for one nano-second when doing the workout think "I can't do this" or my body flat out stops.

This is an "I can do this"-only-mindset allowed situation. I don't want to be the one they scrap up off the floor. I hear it gets better, I don't want to believe that and then have it not get better. You know like a movie you want to see, everyone says it's great then it's not. :(

My world is in shambles, but not my life. SO I got that going for me. I laugh at myself, it's easy to do. Besides I think I am funny.

All for now, waiting on the wine-man to show up. RELAX time.

Cross-Fit chronicles - First Day.

Just a few words about my experience so at the end of the first 18 class session I can see what I was thinking in the beginning. I can get to the gym in about 7 minutes by car. In class I am:
1. thinnest
2. oldest
3. weakest core muscle there
4. most flexible

One more person is joining on thurday - hope she/he is old like me. :)

I was last on the timed workout, but that's okay. I think I will learn quickly and I am determined. I feel good that I am not doing these work outs with a bunch of extra weight. I have soft spots that need attention, which hopefully will turn to toned parts. It was hard. It was, at one point, OMG can I do this? I did. I have been home for just an hour and I can feel my legs burning when trying to get up from the chair.

The instructor is very cool. He's about 50 something, he is really kind and nice, but stern. Looks like former military , I am not sure. His dog, Jessie, hangs out at the gym.

Anyway, all is good a nice hot bath tonight and then tomorrow I wont be able to walk...
