Knee jerk response

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Today I went to the gym for a Zumba class. I haven't been able to do one for a week but I am trying an arthritis medicine called I think Arthrotec but only when I have a flare up. So, today I felt better although it was cold and spitting wet snow. I dragged my butt to the gym for the class only to find that they are on a Christmas schedule. Zumba was cancelled. Now it was also my nephew's birthday and there was a brunch party so I had limited time to work out. Minutes had already flown by while I had been waiting for the class. I felt mad and petulant, almost stamped my foot when finding out the class was not going to happen. A gym friend turned to me and said, "Well you could do a workout anyway, you are here after all." I told her, "Nah, not in the mood." I slammed the locker door and was half way out the gym door when I thought to myself - who am I punishing here? So, I went back into the gym and did the elliptical for one half hour. Not a huge workout but a sign of definite growth and maturity. Why give up? Why not do something, instead of using an excuse to do nothing?
