I ate pasta last night and the night before and today my gut is just disgusting. Yes, really. Yes, from 2 measly meals containing white flour pasta.

I'm so grossed out with myself. I know it's just bloat and it will go away, but I felt so disgusting today at the gym and afterward.

Monday starts my real intense training. I'm putting myself on a tough regimen because I really want to look great for the summer, and right now only parts of my body look great, but not others. I need to make those others look great too. I'm doing a minimum of 40 minutes of cardio at least 5 days a week, in addition to my classes and training sessions. And since I wrote it here, it's going to be so.

Since the new year, I've been religiously going to the gym. I give myself a day off per week. I'm getting so strong and I love it.

Today in class the instructor was handing out resistance bands. They come in three colors/strengths. I usually use the green, which is medium. She handed me a red and said, "You want red, right?" I told her I had never used red before and she told me to go for it. There were only two other women using red, and they chose red themselves.

I would have probably chosen a green if she hadn't said anything. I've gone heavier in my free weights, but she uses the bands mostly for outer thigh and I didn't want to re-injure myself. I'm a little sore, will be more sore tomorrow, but I love that the instructor took notice and bumped me up.

DITL's tomorrow and I've been snapping all day...but I have to share these because I'm uber proud of myself.

..and The Shoes...

I found these jeans in my closet. I have NO idea when I got them. That means I either got them a million years ago when I was skinny or I bought them on some whim and never wore them. Either way, they fit me today. And I even ate lunch in them.

I have some sort of muscle pull on my hip. I went to my mom's physical therapist yesterday and he was kind enough to give me a quick evaluation, free of charge, to let me know what he thought. He said I'm young for arthritis, and that it's most likely a pull. He said I can still do the elliptical, which I was really happy about. He also said to not do the treadmill until it gets better, so much for my intro to running. I can still take the classes too, and go with the simple rule that if something hurts, stop. If it's not better in three weeks, he wants to send me to get some films to see what's going on in there.

My favorite class was canceled today, so I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, during which my toes on the bad side got numb. I mentioned this to the therapist yesterday and he said it's because there's an inflammation putting pressure on the nerve. Yay.

As long as I'm not out of commission, I'm happy. I iced it when I got home for about 20 minutes, I'll take a shower then ice it again later on.

I can't believe I've become such a gym rat. I'm thrilled about it, but surprised. I haven't been like this since I was 19, and that was just for a summer home from college where I was completely addicted. It's a good thing, I'm glad to be back and kinda mad at myself that it took me this long to get there.

I don't see it stopping any time soon, which is also long as I keep my injuries to a minimum.

Milestone at the gym yesterday...the instructor asked me to demonstrate perfect form for an exercise she wanted the class to do. And it wasn't even the instructor I have a crush on!

I felt really good about that.

Does it really matter if I work out or not today if I have swollen glands and a killer sore throat? I mean, is it really going to get worse if I work out?

Heh, ew

I'm going to try the hot instructor's class at the gym tonight, the medicine ball workout.

I hope I don't have too much of a hard time keeping up, I'm gonna feel like such a dweeb if I putter out.

I've been going to the gym pretty religiously for the last few weeks. I'm very proud of myself.

I hadn't gone on a weekend yet because Robert plays tennis on weekend mornings and I don't want to shlep all 3 kids to babysitting there. Since today's the Jewish holiday, he didn't have tennis, so I decided to leave him with the kids and go to the gym.

It was a new teacher to me, she teaches in the evenings there and on Saturdays. She's the hottest thing. Not like beautiful/perfect/gorgeous hot, just sexy and fit and funky.

I'm *so* enlisting my mom to sit one evening so I can try her medicine ball class.

Feel the burn.
