I went to the gym yesterday for the first time in about a month. The last time I went was before Christmas. Christmas I was away for a week, but I have been back in town almost three weeks, so you may be wondering what has taken me so long?
As I mentioned before on this blog, I was writing my thesis, a 80-page paper that makes up for a third of my degree grade. In the two-three weeks leading up to the deadline, while I did waste an incredible amount of time unwinding by watching TV shows on my laptop, I hardly ever left my desk. I just handed it in on Tuesday. Meaning? I have time to do fun stuff again. One of which is going to the gym.
So yesterday I went to the gym to go toTae Bo again. The instructor was sick so someone else substituted for her, and he did a good job, but I noticed that after a four-week absence from the gym, I have lost most of my endurance, and I was absolutely exhausted after just a half hour. Because I was feeling nauseous and kind of seeing black spots, I ended up leaving the class early.
So I am so happy I finally went back to the gym, not so happy that I didn’t stay for the entire class but left halfway through, but you know what? 30 minutes of Tae Bo is the most I have worked out in a month so I think it is still pretty awesome! I cannot wait to get back into a workout routine.
