Not only did I go to the gym once. Not only did I enjoy one workout. Not only did I print off a free week coupon.

I joined a gym!

And! And!! I've been attending regularly!

I know. I know. This has only been since Tuesday. But I feel different. My body feels alive again. Like all these little capsules containing light, energy, and fluidity are firing away under my skin. I'm sore. My skin feels good from sweating. I have energy. I'm eating regularly. Granted, "regularly" is a far, far cry from any kind of weight loss food regime. I'm not counting carbs, calories, protein, or veggies. I'm just eating what feels good. This includes smoothies, lots (and lots!) of iced coffee, vodka, wraps, salads, and vegan cookies. It feels good. I feel good.

But, seriously, the news is the gym. Wow. To run in conditioned air is a blessing. Blessing to not breathe in the smog and humidity that is an east coast city summer. Blessing to be able to actually RUN and not stagger and/or walk due to complete and total exhaustion. I actually let out an audible moan when the treadmill kicked me into a cool down phase. I didn't want to stop. It felt too good.

And to that, I raise my vodka tonic high and toast, "To insanity!"
