Started the day off right with a little cardio at the gym. Here on post we are lucky enough to have access to all the gyms and training equipment that our spouses enjoy. Now a personal trainer will run you $400 a month, but it is free to just use the facilities. So I glided my way to a mile on the elliptical machine and then pedaled a mile on the recumbent bike. It took a few weeks of going every day to build up to this and I’m pretty proud of my progress so far. I have noticed a marked difference in my mood overall as well as pre and post workout. I never feel like doing it, but once I am done I feel really good about it. It really helps that I have some workout partners, they keep me accountable for showing up and putting the work in. I have never been one to have a lot of friends, or any for that matter, but here I am with three wonderful ladies to get healthy with. How to maintain these relationships, I have no clue. We are military so sooner or later someone will move away, eventually all of us will be in different parts of the world. So I guess worrying about long term is a moot point. Either way I’m feeling pretty good about things right now.
