Back from my fun in Vegas, back to the real world, back to the grind.  All of that includes going back to the gym.  And it’s amazing how a few days away from “the norm” makes “the norm” more difficult to do.  Going to the gym yesterday seemed like a chore.  It’s not that I didn’t want to go, it’s that while I was there I felt like I was there for the first time.  I’ve missed going to the gym before.  I’ve had many “first days” at the gym in my life, but for some reason none of them felt like day 122.  Perhaps part of it was that my back has been acting up more.  Part of it might be that I changed my schedule some at work and am waking up about 45 minutes earlier than I used to.  Part of it may even be because I spend more time on my feet during the day than I have in the past.  Whatever it is, the combination of things made the gym not so exciting.  Hopefully it’s not something that happens every day.  I don’t want to blame Vegas, I certainly don’t regret going and having fun every now and then.  So for now I’ll blame everything rolled up into one thing.

One thought on “Day 122… Regret?

  1. IN my heart of hearts I believe the gym is very dull…especially if you are there on your own! and cardio in the gym bores me silly! I do it, sometimes, but this is why I try to do classes and run outside and dance, I find them much more interesting. (except when I am doing PT in the gym…then I love it)!

    Well done going back and carrying on! it is awesome! it is so much harder to do it when you don’t feel like it!! I am sure it will feel better gain soon 🙂
