Getting back on track

Man have I been slacking! Basically a whole lot of stuff has been going on and so I've been out of the gym for what seems like forever. Well, now that I'm done moving and things are finally settling down, or at least it seems like it, I'm ready to get back in gear. In fact, I made up my mind and even went to the gym this morning. It felt good, other than the fact that I was somewhat sick. I think my dinner from last night was catching up with me, so about half-way through my workout the nausea was just too strong so I had to cut it short. But in the end, I was just glad that I was able to get my butt out of bed and to the gym!

So, to get myself back on track with working out, I’ve decided to just follow the regular old Body-for-LIFE workout. I haven’t followed that workout for some time, so I think it will be a good way to get going again.

Its sort of funny, but the reason I got remotivated is the other night my wife and I were watching the movie Annapolis. For some reason, when we were watching the main character get in shape for the final boxing match it was just inspiring and we both got excited to get working out again.

So today, before feeling overly nauseous, I was able to do my chest and back portions of an upper body workout. I’m not sure if it was just because I was sick, or just because I haven’t really worked out for two months, or a combination of the two, but I found that I was a whole lot weaker than I remember being! So, there’s another motivation for me to get going consistently to the gym again!
