I found it!

Funny as it may sound, the gym was right where I left it. I pulled myself from bed this morning at 4:45 and was to the gym just after 5:00. After a solid hour of working out, 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes or so of circuit training I felt great. I will be back again tomorrow and probably the day after too. I need to make this part of my routine. It was at one time but I let that slip. I will do my best to not let that happen again. A few days would be one thing but I missed a whole month.

So as I crawl back on the horse I also did something that I had never done last night. I rode my bike for transportation. I rode to my parents house to help my dad put up a shed. I then rode home after. It is only about a mile and a half but it is hilly and I felt good about it. I think I am going to start looking for other opportunities to use my bike as transportation. With gas over $4 a gallon now I think it is time to do more things differently. The other thing I started last night was the 100 push-ups challenge. If you have not heard about it, I think it at least worth a look. Check it out to the bottom right of my blog. We will see what the results end up being. I can tell you I started out on the initial test and was able to do 6 good push ups. I will keep you posted on my progress.

Great job, willing yourself to that gym! Starting back again is sometimes a difficult step, but you've done it.

yeah for you ;) I think we all need to get a little creative on ways to conserve gas and our hard-earned money........getting more fit in the process is pretty cool too!
