|Circuit Training Room|
Today was my first day back to the gym since...well, I couldn't even tell ya, but at least a couple of weeks. I decided that since I was still feeling sluggish that I would hit the elliptical instead of running. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical machine on random hill mode on level 17. Like ten minutes in, I already felt like it was too much. It felt so hard! I mean level 17 hills aren't by any means easy, but never has it felt that difficult before.... but the first day back is the hardest, right?

I've always seen like those weight-loss "makeover" type shows where people are working out so intensely that they throw up all over the place. I never really understood what that was like until Mr. Leg Extension waltzed into my life! No, no, no, I've never gotten sick at the gym or anything, but this machine legit makes me feel sick! It's so strange! When I'm done with my set I have to sit forward and curl into a ball because I swear I feel like I'm two seconds away from decorating myself with my morning's breakfast!
Is there a machine that makes any of you feel like this?! It's literally the only machine that ever makes me feel like this!
So anyway, my frustration came on hard right after the gym, after a hard workout, I wanted to grab a salad... but it seemed like all the salads I wanted were 15-26 WW points! I was so frustrated! I was like OK, well if I eat the salad I'll only have 7 points left for dinner... grrrrr! I know when you go from eating your face off to sticking to healthy eating it's hard in the beginning, and this was officially my first hard day for me. Luckily, my boyfriend is amazing so he went to the store and got chicken and salad bags and I'm sitting on the deck writing this now while he's grilling the chicken up for our own home made salads that are way less WW points! He's the best :)
I'm starting to love having a place to vent! Thanks for reading!
