Finally... I am recovered from the surgery, recovered from the upper respiratory crud, and Elysia and I made it back to the gym tonight. It was a real ball-buster, not having worked hard in so long. I did my cardio, lifted some weights, and felt every minute of it, but its great to be back in the swing of things.
I am looking forward to the routine of sweating, and feeling my body strengthen, and become more flexible and (hopefully) leaner.
Diet is a big part, so we are back on a portion control and intake control footing, with Sunday as a free day.
I'm Starting out at 245lbs, 6 feet tall. I don't actually care about the weight, but I want to muscle up and get the fat off. If I gain weight in so doing, that's fine. I just need to tighten things up quite a bit.
I love this feeling of being pleasantly sore and tired.
I was very calm and mindful today. I had no sense at all of the passage of time. Since it was a gray day here on Long Island, the light didn't much change at all, so it seemed like 6AM all day long.
