Good morning and happy Thursday!
I treated myself to a chai latte on my chilly walk to work this morning because it’s been a while since I’ve had one, and because I’m starting to feel a little bit better.
In fact, yesterday I actually ate three real meals. I mean they were smaller than usual, but they consisted of real solid food and not applesauce and juice! Winning!
And since I was finally able to eat again yesterday, I decided it was safe to get back in the gym. (When I’m not feeling well enough to eat, working out and burning calories that I’m not consuming seems pretty unsafe.)
I mentally prepped myself for the post-New Year’s overcrowding I would face and braced myself for the freezing cold (but at least pretty short) walk to the fitness center.
But when I got there all the doors were locked and the fitness center was totally empty. I asked at the front desk of the building and apparently overnight a pipe had burst, and the gym was “out-of-order” until further notice.
Nothing will completely kill your motivation or frustrate you more than getting up early to work out, getting all the way to the gym and then not being able to get inside.
When I got back home, I was super annoyed that the building hadn’t sent an email letting people know the gym was closed. That would have at least saved me some time and frustration. An email eventually came sometime around 3 p.m. Super helpful really.
I’m hoping it doesn’t take them too long to get the pipe situation under control. I miss lifting weights (there’s something I never thought I’d say) and I do’nt want to fall too far behind with my personal training program.
