Let it be known that I have not died. Let it also be known that I have not worked out in 2.5 months until tonight.
There are many reasons why: death in the family, unemployment, search for new employment, wedding, moving, business travel, running a thriving but still start-up business, etc. What is all boils down is one thing, prioritizing. I realized that I had to gain some perspective in my life, exercise was way too far up on the priority list and my family was under it. So....I was forced to take a good hard look and settle down. My mind kept telling me I was lazy, especially in the beginning. ALL DAY LONG, I would beat myself up and say that I was being lazy. Eventually, that voice went away and I just felt peace.
My new goal is this, workout with my family to be healthy and happy. That is all.
That being said, when I get a workout in (with my family!) I am definitely going to document it. I guess I am just narcissistic that way. Tonight Nick and I went to our new gym and enjoyed the cardio cinema. I ran/walked 2 miles while Nick ellipticalled next to me. We enjoyed part of "War of the Worlds" and I only almost fell off my treadmill one time, and only accidentally pulled the emergency cord twice. FYI, that cord is a really abrupt stop. I don't recommend pulling it. Cardio cinema rocks! The alien chasing stuff made me want to run faster and a couple of times I outran my treadmill speed. Then I died a little because, man I am out of shape!
Afterward we went to do some arms and chest stuff. I basically can barely bench press the bar, so that is awesome. But there is nowhere to go but up!
