I can't quite believe it. I hopped on the scale this morning and found...yes...wait for it...down 1 lb! Considering the weekend I had in Chicago, I was very happy to see the scale moving in the right direction (163). Yes, it's a slow loss, but I refuse to be discouraged by the simple fact that I'm not dropping weight at an uber-rapid pace.
I'm still feeling pretty stubborn about working out. I have my membership at the Blue Ash Rec, and I haven't been to even see the new building, check out the new gym, etc. To be brutally honest, I'm a little intimidated to go. I knew where everything was in the old building, knew how to find the locker room, the different gyms where the classes were. And now? Now I have no idea where anything is. Considering how ill at ease I feel in the gym, I hate not knowing how to get around in the new rec. I know I should just go, get a tour, ask, but I can't bring myself to do it. For whatever reason, the gym is like the last frontier for me...and I'm such a chicken to try to cross. Starting Monday I'll be working out in Blue Ash, so I will literally have NO excuse to not go work out. Anyone go to the Blue Ash Rec who would want to be an early-morning workout buddy? Ideally, I'd love to take kick-boxing in the morning at 6:15...but how awesome would be to have a friend?
Sidebar: Another issue I have with working out in the morning is the whole "getting ready for work in the locker room" thing. Does anyone do this? Pack your clothes, make-up, everything and literally get ready for the day at the gym? This seems so weird to me! If you have any pointers on how to get ready quickly, please comment!
