Going to the Gym

I’m about to have to deal with this. I run six miles every single day, and due to deeply-rooted OCD as well as an obsessive fear of gaining weight back I haven’t missed a single day in seven years. For the last four years I have for the most part enjoyed the relative luxury of working either mid or closing shifts in the Biergarten at the brewery  I work at. 

Next month, though, I’m finally moving into production working in the cellar. They’re willing to work with me on my school schedule which means for the most part I will be working the morning shift from 4AM-noon. Which means I’ll have to squeeze in my workout between 1 and 4, at which point I’ll be in class until 8.

It’s gonna be a bit of a grind, and I know from experience that these post-work runs are gonna be pretty rough comparatively.......but I know I can tough it out until school’s done and they can finally put me in the full rotation.

And besides that my body could probably stand to have a bit of a shake-up from my usual routine.
Going to Day 2 this afternoon--my legs hurt SO much but going to try and push through it. Can't wait to do 3 minutes straight of squats again.

Getting into the schedule is the hardest part--glad to hear you're going to be able to fit it in. If I can get this routine down for 3 days a week, and the major soreness starts turning into regular soreness, I'll try to do some mornings here and there. We are about to move into "summer hours" meaning that I get to leave at lunchtime on Fridays.
I did it! The 2nd workout was sort of like bouncing squats. Holy shit I wanted to scream. But I burned another 600+ calories. Back again tomorrow.
10 visits in! I even got an email congratulating me on 10 visits. Is it any easier? A little bit. It hits different parts of my body every time I go so something different is sore, but a good sore. So far not bored and still looking forward to the visits (some days more than others). I have a physical at my doctor on Thursday, so we'll see if this has made a difference.

After two months, I'm going to 4 days a week. I haven't really lost any substantial weight, but I am fitting differently in my clothes. I realized that I had gained a lot of weight when I noticed that just sitting was making me uncomfortable around my waist. That feeling has pretty much gone away now.
