Making it Burn

Ahhhh...the gym! I can't tell you how excited I am to be working out again. I hit the weight machines tonight after my warm-up and it felt amazing to see those muscles moving. Since I was there in the final hour before closing, I didn't get to do quite as much as I would have liked, but I ran upstairs to hit cardio and get the heart rate going.

And since I'm working out in the evenings, the gym is nearly patron-free, so my self-confidence hits the roof and I go for it. Figured out a new machine on my own tonight that I had never seen before or tried, and I didn't feel weird trying to get it down because no one was watching! I would have like to do the circuit once more before heading home, but I was literally the final member in the gym (and the lights were off), so I went on out the door. I want to get (well, I'm not even exactly sure what they're called!) a monitor I can wear like a watch that counts the total calories I burn while exercising. This way I'm not just aware of what I've burned on the cardio machines; I can see the results of my lifting as well. I feel like a new person when I'm working out!
