Day 3: New routine

Monday morning… Kept waking up early as I was worried I would sleep through my 5am alarm.  First day of going to the gym before work.  Last night I prepared my food ahead of time, packed my gym bag with all my morning toiletries, and chose my work clothes.

I arrived at the gym at 5:45am. It’s a small community gym – not one of the big fancy chains.  It was nice and quiet with no one in the recently remodeled locker room.  I had a pleasant 30 minute walk on the treadmill, all the while reminding myself not to push it as I have just started exercising again.  My lower back was sore from walking the dogs the night before – the last thing I need is to mess up my back.  When you have a large gut and a larger behind, the lower back takes a beating.  Tired of that feeling. Also tackled the elliptical machine – 5 minutes was enough my first time on it.

Tonight I told a good friend about my new blog and the purpose for it.  She was very supportive and said it’s like having a Overeater’s Anonymous sponsor.  So, dear blog, you are my sponsor.

Here’s my food for the day.
