My Old Gym Rat Ways

Last night, I felt really good when I got home. This is because I spent about 2 hours at the gym. I loved it! I started with a slow 3 miles, then hit up the leg weights and ended my glorious night with an hour ripped class. I am a little sore this morning. I know, once I wake up more, I will  be even more sore. It's all a good sore, though. I miss this soreness.

(Please excuse the re-used photo)

I knew since I can't get up at 4 am anymore (at least right now, I'm too lazy), I will start going to the gym after work. One thing I didn't miss was the appetite. I was a little hungry before, but I know today I will be starving. I'm going to miss my 4 am gym peeps, but maybe I'll try to get up at that time when the sun starts getting up that early.

Already, I'm happier and I have more energy. I'm, so glad that I went. I'm going to go back tomorrow night (for my spin class), more running and some weights thrown in there. It did take me a little longer to get home from the gym, last night. So, I'm afraid to tell you guys, I'm no longer a run a way from the gym (like I use to incorporate my long runs during the week).

House update:
Still trying to get the heat fixed, but we're lucky we're in Cali because it gets cold, but not that cold here at night (plus we have space heaters). Walls are getting painted and pictures are getting hung. The house is starting to feel like ours and not that we're house sitting for someone. The kitchen is almost at a place where you may be able to see a difference (we can, just because we did the work), so I'll post pictures soon.

Are you a crazy early bird (like I prefer to be, but can't force myself at the moment), or do you prefer an after work sweat-a-thon?


  1. Can't wait to see pics of the new place. If I am hitting the gym I actually prefer to go early just cause I hate it when there are a ton of people around. This morning was perfect - from 4:40-5:40 it was just me, myself and I.

  2. I'm a crazy early bird! I love getting up early and getting my workout done. As a working mother, some days if I don't get it done first thing in the morning it's not going to happen. www.dashingdiva.net

  3. Good work getting back to the gym!

  4. I just recently started to read your blog, and I really love reading what you have to say.
    Typically on my runs for the weekday, I do it after work/class. On the weekends I love getting up early and getting the run in to energize the rest of my day!

  5. i have really varied since we moved to florida...i used to be totally morning crazy, but now i have more time working from home so I find I split it up between morning and night.
