A Year of Living Positively-Day 200

I went to the gym in the morning rather than in the afternoon today because a big rainstorm was threatening. The storm has held off; I hope it does not happen tomorrow because a nice hike to a waterfalls with C is planned for tomorrow.
It was cooler than normal in the morning, which is a good time for a good workout.

A colleague was there at the gym and he showed me how to use one of the weight machines because I was unfamiliar with it. It is a machine for strengthening the triceps and my flabby arms would benefit by it. I was glad the co-worker happened to be there using that particular machine today, for I am hesitant about trying out equipment that I haven't used before unless someone gives me pointers, but I have been wanting to try out other equipment at the gym.

Actually, I have decided that that shyness and lack of confidence about using weight machines would be a suitable topic for the Confessions project. I will try to write about it today, for I should keep up the work on Confessions.

As I tend to be hungry all morning, not wanting to eat very much in the morning and preferring to sort of nibble throughout the morning, I was not sure I would have enough gas, so to speak, to get through a workout. My metabolism is speeding up since I have started working out, and, naturally, I am burning more calories than before. I got through it but pledged to buy some bread after the exercise session today. I just came back from the corner bakery with several squares of a delicious dark health bread and a small but heavy raisin bread so that I will have enough energy for the hike,. I also stored several packets of health bread in the freezer to save it for the days I do workouts next week.

A made a great tomato pasta sauce and had a serving of pasta with some sauce for lunch. That seemed to be enough. I'll finish off the pasta tonight for dinner.

I need fuel for the body and for thought. This is the 200th day of this blog, but I feel that I do not have anything special to say. I shall have to remind myself to prepare more before writing. I guess one aspect of getting this far with the blogging is that it is harder to keep up a high level of enthusiasm now than at the first stage. Regardless, I am not apathetic!
