Back in the saddle...

Unfroze my LA Fitness membership yesterday and made an appointment to see my trainer next Friday.  It's been nearly 4 months (actually 16 weeks ago as of tomorrow) since the accident, and it's been a huge struggle not to gain weight despite the holidays and the forced sedentary lifestyle.  Last night I only managed about 25 minutes: 4-5 set of 20 reps on machines working my shoulders, back and chest, followed by 13 minutes on the recumbent bike.  I'm sore...but I feel good. I may even go back. LOL

My goal is not to focus so much on actual numbers on the scale, but rather the discipline and consistency in my efforts.  I believe that eventually the good deeds will pile up and result in a healthier me.  That said, I have two weddings and a birthday in May and it'd be nice to get in better shape by then.  So I'm setting a weight loss goal of 10 solid pounds before the big day. That should make a difference in how my dress fits, double chins, etc.  Wish me luck!!
