A Moving Forward kind of day

The hardest step of changing your life is the first step, right??? So my gym shoes are on and I am taking that step out the door and heading to the gym!!

Which means I am stepping away from the computer!!! Proof as you can see.

I pulled my gym bag out of the closet, shook off the dust, figured out my combination lock and added two vital things to my bag. Plus a packet of the green tea that I like to add to my refill of water.

Okay, supplies in hand lets make a break for it!!

Oh my, it's such a nice day. Maybe I'll work in the yard instead. Water some of the things I planted recently. Throw down some of the cosmo and bachelor button seeds I bought......NO!!! Get in the car!!

I'm currently listening to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Took me a bit of time to get into it, but now it has definitely hooked me. I have two books to download via audible.com....maybe I should just run back in and do that while I'm thinking about it.

NO NO NO!!! I am not going back into that chair!!! PUT keys in ignition and GO!!

Alright I'm on my way now! Oh! It's the first day of the Shop Hop!! The tent is up at Tangled Threads, the greatest shop in the county!! I could just run in, say hello, see the shop hop quilt......

NO! NO! NO! The shop hop goes through the weekend. I can stop another time. Yeah, I'm here! See the sign? Fitness Center. Going down the stairs to the center is no problem, coming up them when I am done can be a challenge!!!

Since I have been here last, they have put in new machines, new carpet and paint. My mission today is 15 minutes on the treadmill and 15 on the elliptical. No speed or range parameters, just get the time in. With some stretches in between the two.

It certainly smells better in here than it did!!! This is a pretty good time of day, the mega Mom's are done and gone home and the after work fitness monsters are still at work!!

Was a really good workout, I met my goals, now to race home to be there for the kids so Krista can get to work on time. Let's plan on this being a regular deal again, exercise....priceless.

Way to go on getting there and meeting your workout goals! :)

It's always so hard to start up again after a break. I hate it.

Congrats on making that first step - wish I could join you, need to get back into routine after our vacation. BTW, really enjoyed our visit to your part of the world! Lovely quilts on the design wall.
