OK, I knew I was out of shape. Didn't realize just how bad it was until I actually *gasp* exercised.

Last week I joined Snap Fitness with J. from work. They had a special going where there was no enrollment fee, and they have month to month contracts, so I figure if I end up not using it I'll only be out a few months fees.

I went to work out yesterday for the first time and barely made my 15 minutes on the elliptical machine.

but wow! am I ever achy today. Mostly my thighs. It's that sort of feels good ache you get from exercise, but it is definitely something I'm not used to!

In other news, I did horrible on my Spanish test. I got a B- which doesn't seem that bad except that I'd been getting A's on everything 'til now.

It was raining when I left school. When I got home the raindrops were looking a little white and solid. It was also windy as all fuck out there. Right now it looks like we've got about an inch out there and it's still coming down.

I expect that it will be absolutely GORGEOUS out by the time I get up tomorrow. And I can leisurely enjoy it & take some pictures before snowblowing because I'm working the afternoon shift instead of morning. Yay! Sleeping in *and* pretty snow!

Good for you for working out! :) It does take a while to get back into it though.

I'm glad you're happy about the new wet stuff. I'd think by now you'd be pretty sick of it. :) I always was.

If I knew that the snow would then be here for WEEKS & WEEKS I'd probably hate it. But snow this time of year disappears so fast.

Good on ya for the workout. When you're getting back up to speed I'd especially recommend doing various exercises for cardio... elliptical, recumbent bike, fast walking on a track or treadmill and such. This will give you some variety and make it so you "spread around the soreness" in smaller doses to different muscles.

Yeah, I'm planning on doing different machines. The main thing I need to worry about is that I have bad knees so anything with impact is bad.

Have fun with the pretty pictures!

I'll be playing in traffic...

Eh, it was all slush by the time I dragged my lazy ass out of bed. :)

Girl, you've got nothing on me. I had to participate in ONE dance with my daughter at her school yesterday, granted it included hunching down and standing up a lot, (don't ask me, some weird dance obviously designed to make fat old mothers look silly) and today my thighs are aching! It was only about 5 minutes! Damn, I'm out of shape. *sighs*

My knees would never be able to take the hunching down & standing up. Stupid knees!

You have snow? All I got was slush.

Yeah, by the time I dragged my lazy ass out of bed it was ugly slush. :(

Hey there you! How are things? I've been thinking about joining a little gym that just went up over here. I know I'm terribly out of shape. I can't even imagine how achy I would be.
