Let's get physical

So, I'm thinking that maybe it would be a good idea to do the "before and after" thing.  It's not so much that I'm thinking there will be a definitive "after" point.  But I think that if I took a picture of me before I started using the gym, sort of a recently turned 35, end of 2005 motivational snap.  Ya know?

That way, I can SEE what a change.  I've noticed a slight difference already.  This past month, I've been going to PT.  I carry myself a tad bit more straighter through the spine and no hunched shoulders (I didn't even realize that I did slump my posture so badly).  My weight hasn't changed all that much, but I didn't expect it to.  One reason is that it is the holidays and I figured that losing might be too much to expect, how about just maintaining...?  Also, muscle weighs more than fat, per volume.  So, I do notice some difference in the fit of the clothing.  On Sunday, I tried on a pair of jeans that didn't fit at all a month ago.  The jeans slipped right over the thighs and hips and zipped right up.  yea!

The gym I am joining is an extension of the Baptist Hospital's services.  It's housed in the same unit as my PT.  The facilities include a lap pool, hydrotherapy pool, whirlpool, steam room, sauna, equipment, track, free weights, classes, etc.  Yippee!!

I'm very excited and happy.  Can ya tell???
