Oh man, that’s going to hurt in the morning

Open scene.

Clock turns to 5:55AM.  Alarm rings.
Gwen:  “Groan”
Jason: “I guess we could always go to the gym tonight”
Gwen: “Groan”
Jason: “Do you want to sleep or get up?”
Gwen: “What I want is to wake up thin and fit”
Jason: “But just think of how great it will feel when you accomplish your goals.”
Gwen (rolling out of bed onto her feet):  “Whatever!  That’s bullshit!  That’s just what thin and fit people say to make you feel better about having to drag your ass to the gym at 6AM.”
End scene

As you can see, Jason is in for a real treat in the “waking up Gwen” department.  He does tend to find my early morning grumbling amusing though so I guess that is a good sign.  

I have now successfully gone to the gym two days in a row.  I realize that doesn’t sound like much but seeing as it has been months since I’ve been, it is an accomplishment.  Today was weight day and I realized how soft my muscles have become.  My muscles are already protesting so I am anticipating some serious stiffness tomorrow morning when I roll out of bed at 5:55AM to hit the gym for my next cardio routine. Even with feeling tired and sore though – I am quite pleased that I am getting back into the gym.  I didn’t realize how much I missed it and once I get past the sore muscle and fatigue stages, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it even more.


  1. Just think, the hardest part, really, was going back to the gym for the first time. Every morning when you wake up and don’t want to go…think about how hard it will be to go the next time if you don’t stick to your schedule. And if you’re anything like me, if you can find an excuse to not go in the morning, you’ll find one to not go after work either. Just go….it’s the least painful course of action in my experience 😛 Good for you for keeping it up!

  2. Oh yeah – if I don’t go in the morning…I am not going at all. I can always find reasons not to go at night. It is waaaaaay too easy to find other things to do after work.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

  3. Yay, good for you Gwen! Only 2 more days before it starts to get easier if you subscribe to The Four Day Win theory.

  4. good work indeed! btw – what is the 4 day win theory!?!? Isn’t it 21 days? Anyway, keep it up! Just remember it is not about being slim, it’s about your health and the positive results it will have in the long run!

    Good work!
