Back To The Gym

Well, today we finally made it back to the gym. It felt great to get back in there. I refuse to call it a New Year’s resolution. It’s just that we’ve been busy, and I, personally, lost my drive when my grand mom died a few months ago.

What I am really looking forward to doing is getting back into weights. Something I enjoyed very much in high school, when they gave me that instead of a regular gym class due to my poor vision. I wish I would have worked harder at it then. I wanted to avoid getting big and was actually embarrassed to have the gym class with other disabled students rather than a regular class. Now I realize I was lucky to have it and a wonderful teacher to go with it.

Our gym is not perfect for weights, but they have some machines and a few other things. It’s only a 2 minute drive from home and once the construction crews complete the new bridge that is being built we will walk to the gym. Now there is no shoulder on the road and I don’t intend to get killed this year. It’s also much better than what we have at home, which is nothing.

My goal is to be able to do pull-ups. I never could do those before, no matter how hard I tried, but I will do them now.
