Then I remembered what I read on The Anti-Jared blog. NO MORE EXCUSES. I WANT RESULTS. so I bit the bullet and dragged my sorry tired arse to the gym. As soon as I changed. I felt the energy arrive!! By the time I'd done thirty minutes on the bike I was pumped. Did fifteen on the elliptical and another 15 on the treadmill. I no longer feel tired. It was such the wake up call I needed. I realised I didn't get over the tiredness because I just let it take over. If I just gotten up off the couch once it wouldn't have gone on this long, I just wallowed in it. I feel sooooooooo much better.
I was a bit annoyed that in my hurrying to the gym I left my mp3 player behind. Gutted. The music at the gym coupled with the machine noises was baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad. Not as bad as the farts the guy on the treadmill in front of me was letting out. GARGH. They smelled like rotten eggs, I actually gagged once. On a more positive note.... instead of doing my usual total 11 whatevers (I'm not quite sure what the distance is measured in) I did 14.95 whatevers. 11 of those came from the bike. Oh yeah. I stepped that shit up. I am averaging 10 rpm more than my last couple of times on the bike and it didn't hurt as much to sit on it.
Feeling completely refreshed from the gym I showered and went off to uni with a smile on my face, forgot that I dreaded my group project meeting. The meeting was productive (thank god). Got everything sorted and I stayed til 6pm doing as much of my essay as possible before I head to my family's place for the weekend.... so yay, yay and YAY. I am feeling soooo much more positive. I never thought I'd owe the gym that. Also below is a picture of me in my work out top. It used to be skin tight on me and I am not sure if you can really tell but I pulled it out to show how feckin' loose it is. *content sigh* Don't look at the mess on the floor beside me... I WILL TIDY :p
HOOORAY. I also experienced sunshine today without a freezing chill wind. I actually felt the heat of the sun on my skin. Good times. Now I just need to be able to fit on my own bike (I'm too heavy for it right now)....soon...oh yeah
