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