(wo)Man In the Mirror

"Man In The Mirror" - Michael Jackson
I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life. It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference, gonna make it right... I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I'm asking him to changes his ways. And no message could have been any clearer....
Today was Day 1 of the new chapter. It started out painfully early ... I was awake and working around 645a, simply because I couldn't sleep. It was a long day at work, lots of questions, lots of issues, nothing out of the ordinary lately, but it was a long day. At 7p I headed to FTP (Face the Pain) Fitness to meet with Billy, the owner, and my trainer for now. I did a quick warm up on the treadmill and then he put me through what will be my new 6-day a week work out regimen.  3 days of weight circuit training, 3 days of 45ish mins of cardio. We went through all the machines, making sure everything felt ok and I sort of knew what I was doing. I need to see a massage therapist of even a chiropractor as I have a huge knot right between my shoulder blades that's becoming a bit troublesome, but it actually felt better by the end of the night. If I can only remember to breathe correctly. Blow OUT the weights ...blow OUT the weights... Thanks Mr. Pain!
I think that my time at the gym is going to be my favorite part of the day. My cell phone is away. No one is emailing me or calling me. No hotels bugging me. All I have to think about are the weights or cardio I'm doing right then. I like that.
I need to start decorating the condo. I need to go through pictures and start printing them, deciding what goes where. Maybe I'll get some thrift-store'ing in this weekend, or yard sailing.
Tonight was capped off with a call from my dear friend Sandi, in Omaha. Just when I needed it, like usual, Sandi pops into my little world. Usually via email as we're both at work, but I enjoyed her call and I'm sure they will be more frequent.
For now, it's drinking water, watching Glee (my guilty pleasure) and a cuddly kitty.
