Thursday Virtual Dinner Partner

I am "between gyms" and found a month long complementary membership at a local gym while I shop around for a new one. The novelty of a new place made working out a lot more fun than it tends to be for me.

I am not a track walker but I welcomed the opportunity today because the weather was so cold. I haven't ridden my bike since August, so I took a spin class which was a fun diversion. Gyms aren't nature for me but they open possibilities for exploring nature down the road. I feel like I need to approach fitness as a mission so I can climb some real mountains this summer. That's the vision that kept me engaged today.

Sleep: about 6 hours woke up several times last night

oatmeal (2/3 c before cooked) and 2 tbsp peanut butter
2 c black tea
spinach and onion omelet (1 egg and eggbeaters) with Romano cheese
butternut squash with New Balance
chocolate heaven
edamame in the shell
deli turkey, field greens, and honey mustard in a whole grain wrap

Totals:1 fruit and 4 veggies

Movement: at gym today walked a mile on indoor track, took hour long spin class, and did leg resistance training on machines, at home did arm resistance training with free weights.

I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
