I did it. I went to the gym last night.
I have to say, my mood was immediately better after a workout. Maybe it was just because I was so proud of myself for actually stepping foot into a gym, and not to just go eat at the cafe and leave, but to work out. I really hope I can make going into a habit.
What is really beginning to worry me is the amount of sitting I'm doing. Sitting all day every day can, allegedly, take years off your life and I believe it. I'm getting like no exercise besides walking to and from metro and I just feel lethargic all. the. time. Cannot be good for my health, even if I'm not overweight. It's definitely not good for my mental health.
Also, total side-note: I forgot to update you guys, who were so kind to leave me feedback regarding my lumpy boob. I went to the doctor to have it checked out. They're not positive what it is but they think it's probably just a cyst. It got smaller right after I started my period - a good sign - and seems to fluctuate in size throughout the month. I go back to the doc at the end of the month, will likely end up getting a mammogram since the lump isn't gone, but I'm optimistic - so are they - that it's nothing. I'm glad I went, though and they're also glad I came in. Moral of story: If something weird is going on with your body, don't wait. Just go get it checked out. You'll be glad you did.
