tired legs

Went to see my nephrologist this morning and got a good report! My creatin levels dropped from 1.4 to 1.2 over this past year, so now I can just have my regular doctor check my levels! I only have to go back to the nephrologist if my levels go back up.

So after my appt, I went to the gym. I started out with a 10 minute warm up on the bike, then went to Aqua Zumba. After that I did 10 lengths in the pool, which is 1/8th of a mile. That's not much, but it's a good start! I finished up with my regular water exercise class, then headed home. My legs are tired, but it's a good tired! The goal is to get up and do it all over again tomorrow! And then the next day, and the next.....

Sometimes it's hard to find a motivation to keep getting up and going to the gym. I have printed off some posters to put up on my wall, I have marked goals on my calendar, I have brought out clothes in the size I want to be and put it where I can see it often. But when that alarm goes off in the morning, I just want to keep hitting the snooze button as long as I can. I know that I will feel better after I actually get up and go work out, but it's actually getting up and walking out that door that is the hardest thing to do. And why is that? When I know it's good for me, and I know I will feel better! I don't know. But I need to find that motivation and get up and get going because in 10 weeks Terry and I will be heading home to South Texas to celebrate our 30 year anniversary. And I want to be able to enjoy myself on the beach and fishing on the pier and jetty. I want to be able to wear a swimsuit and not worry about looking fat. I want to feel good about myself. So, somehow, somewhere, I have GOT to find the motivation to walk out that door every morning!
