I had the BEST time at the gym yesterday! I am not gonna lie my mind was playing tricks on me! First I left work a few minutes early and the bus came LATE! Not a biggie for an ordinary commuter however when you work in DC and live in Maryland 15 minutes can mean almost an hour in terms of traffic! On the way up the road I tried to keep my mind focused on the gym!! The plan was to take Socarobics & then the class my personal trainer teaches Chizel-It! All of a sudden I was thinking about going to Qdoba! Like really thinking hard about chips and melted cheese! Out of no where! My mind was out of control! Then I was thinking about skipping Qdoba and just going home! Who would know? I could just go home like yesterday and crawl in the bed and rest myself. That's the hard part about having a long commute its too easy to talk yourself out of working out! But I have a goal....and it involves a LBD
So I got it together and went straight to the gym (going home is fatal to a good plan!) and made a pit stop in the mall as a treat to myself for following through! I got some new workout gear and the girly things were buy one, get one 50% off so I grabbed a few things and went to workout!
I saw my trainer at the door and he gave me his classic greeting and I rolled my eyes and started to whine about me being sick and why he was sending me a text message with an attitude (lol) he didn't pay me any mind as usual! He said he was just checking! I said your text was doing more that just checking on my cold Charles! lol
A/w his wife commented on how good I looked she said she could tell I was "coming down nicely." I brushed that off because I done gained back the magic 9.5 stomach flu pounds plus 2! *humph* But she said no I see it I said whatever and went to class!
Anyhooo one of my gym friends that's been MIA was there and she stopped me before class to tell me she could tell I lost some weight and looked really good! I was like really? I am still trying to lose what I gained last summer! She said well its working! I started to brush her off like my trainer's wife but then I said you know Donna just said the same thing and so did a co-worker but I don't see it but if you are saying it too I'll have to take yalls word for it lol My sister made the point that sometimes the scale is a little behind on one's actual progress and that is true. I have been back on track for about 3 weeks before I got sick last week and well my body must be shaping up or trimming down more than the scale is documenting.
