Last Friday, I joined the gym. It feels good and just a bit scary to say that. I joined the YMCA last year but failed miserably with it, mostly because the Y is only open during the day and our hours did match with that for fitness. The new gym is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
I didn’t waste time getting started. Saturday night was our first workout and I chose to take it easy. I have a year to workout and I don’t want to strain any muscles, after all I am a busy Momma and Momma’s don’t get days off. Sunday, I felt a little muscle soreness but not too bad so I’m overall satisfied with easing into the workouts.
I must admit that I did overdo it on the ab machine and I’m seriously paying for that. After 4 c-sections, the muscles in that region are pretty damaged. I need to ease in slowly to their repair and I’m not rushing at all. I feel like any little bit to reach that goal of a flatter stomach is good.
So slow and steady wins the race. I aim to lose about 30 lbs. I currently weigh 151lbs and am 5’5 in height so I have room to lose. My first goal is to gain fitness to strengthen my muscles and my next goal will be to make it to a number in the 120’s weight wise. Little steps will get me there.
It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.
Wish us luck!!
