Well, it wasn't exactly what you'd call a "workout": it was going through my weights program, making sure weights etc. were suitable. Together with the cardio it's a challenging program, but within my capabilities. And after that I thought "ah, screw it, I'm here, I'll jump on the treadmill for 15 minutes". Very glad to see "How I Met Your Mother" on the TV while I slogged it out!
I always loved the rowing machine, so I'm very happy they made it a feature of the cardio workout. And I even kept up with my trainer!!! OK, so it was only for 5 minutes, and I was on level 4 while she was on 10, and she's 45 and I'm... younger. But it felt good to keep up the same rate as her! Anyway, just chatting to The Boy (Nathan) and I mentioned something that I'd forgotten -- a workout really helps me sort out my head. I don't know why. And the rowing machine lets me get into an almost zen-like state: something about the rhythm, the smooth motion... I don't know.
Forgive me, I seem to be in a very philosophical mood... all those lovely exercise-chemicals surging around my body, no doubt. Sweat is yucky, but feeling quite good after a little light movement.
So folks, it's started. Hopefully it will continue before work tomorrow morning (ie. 5.30am at the gym... *groan*) with a full weights session. Finishing up with a little cardio.
I've also rediscovered all my "skinny" cookbooks, so will have to start trying dishes more from these.
Wish me luck!
