No spandex

I went to the gym for the first time today. Signed the contract, got my picture taken, and took a bodyPUMP class. What a kick! I was glad for all the time I have spent lifting weights to FIRM videos. That gave me the confidence and I made it through the class just fine. The moves are not identical, of course, and they use a weight bar instead of dumbbells, so there's some adjustment there, but the standards are the standards. It won't take so long to catch on, I think, and then I'll be able to up the weights. Until I am comfortable with the moves, though, and have a sense of what each sequence does to me, I will stay with lighter weights.

I was dressed in old stretch pants (cotton & polyester, I think) and a T-shirt, and I fit right in. Nobody there was looking to impress. Even the instructor was dressed very casually. The range of ages is fairly wide, too. I was really delighted to be in there with other people, working out with others. It really does make it more fun.

I went to Scolari's after and grabbed a bag of trail mix and an orange. Gotta carb up quicklike after pumping iron, you know.

What a good move, joining the gym. What I needed.
