Here we go! I decided to not wait until after New Year’s to get back in the gym. After taking a much needed break these past few weeks to let my body recuperate a bit and heal up some nagging injuries I felt it was time to get back in gear. Oh yes, I also took off on my diet too and indulged in plenty of bad eating and drinking. Hey, it’s holiday season and I am not one to deprive myself of all the good food and booze being put in front of me! Ho-Ho-Ho!
I hit the gym last night and hit the weights hard, along with a half hour of cardio work. Surprisingly, I had kept most of my strength and was just a bit crusty. The treadmill part was just as if I had never left it and picked up where I had left off. Even after about three weeks not much had changed other then the fact that my pants got tighter! Hopefully, I can burn off most of this holiday weight by the end of January as we have an Atlantic City trip planned with our Yelp group for the last weekend. Two a day workouts and a stricter diet should do the trick. Discipline baby! That will surely be a deserved cheat weekend!
I do have to admit that I am plenty sore today, and it feels good to get a burn after a workout. Still love that feel of the steel along with a good sweat from a jog on the treadmill. Just gotta get through New Years Eve and it should be smoother sailing. Have a full plate of booze, food, and fun scheduled for that night! Pancake and mimosa breakfast scheduled for the morning. Carbo-loading for the holiday!
Gotta hit the gym now and get my workout in. Need to burn off that everything bagel with low-fat cream cheese I had for breakfast. Yeah, I have to ease back into the healthy diet thing. Still enjoying myself too much this holiday season!
