go me

I decided last night that I was going to start working out again. I haven’t been to the gym since…. oh who am I kidding, the last time I went was probably late August or early September. The crazy thing is that I’ve actually lost weight during this time, which I can only assume means that I’ve lost muscle mass. I’m not exactly sure what brought on this sudden inspiration for fitness — I don’t know if it was the fact that I went shopping yesterday & I wasn’t happy with the way most of the clothes fit me, or if it was the fact that last night I ordered Domino’s and ate 1 piece of pizza and the entire thing of Cinna-stix (which, as far as I’m concerned, is the only reason to ever order Domino’s, because their pizza pretty much sucks).

In any case, I woke up early this morning to go to yoga. Ok, technically the class starts at 11:30, so I didn’t wake up that early, but it’s early for me on a Sunday. Anyway, I get myself all psyched up for this, and the class is actually something they call PiYo because it combines pilates & yoga, and I knew it was going to kick my butt, but I was ready for it. So I get there, and there’s no teacher. Eh???? The guy who taught the previous class stuck around and did a 45-minute stretching class for those of us who were looking forward to yoga, which was cool because it was very similar to yoga, but it wasn’t quite the butt-kicking experience I had in mind. I figured that as long as I was at the gym, I might as well make it worth my while, so I did 20 minutes on the elliptical cross-trainer before I left.

Oddly enough, I noticed mid-workout that I felt more energetic than I had felt for weeks, so obviously this is something that my body has been missing. So that’s it, I’m going to make a conscious effort to get my lazy butt back to the gym on a regular basis. There’s a yoga class tomorrow evening, which I’ll be attending — I figure that if I write about it here, then I have to do it or I’ll feel guilty. But the teacher had better show up this time, dammit.

Oh yeah, I also cleaned my entire apartment tonight. Laundry, vacuuming, windexing everything in sight, the whole shi-bang. Overall, I think it’s safe to say that I had an unusually productive weekend. Strange.
