I have a gym! It's so nice to be back but at the same time, I'm terrified. The only thing I've done is the elliptical. I'm afraid to try a class and I'm so intimidated by the free weights. Can you believe it? ME? I used to love free weights and now I'm afraid to go over there. Anxiety. I feel like everyone is looking at me. I know they're not, but I feel like it. Wish I had a fellow gym rat to go with me. I'm just going to turn my music up and pretend there is no one else there. Speaking of music... I'm still carrying around an iPod shuffle. Maybe I can get dh to go with me a few times. We both joined but he's going in the evenings and I'm going in the mornings.

One of my philosophies (and one I'm trying to instill in my clients) is "WWEYOMS?" What Would 80 Year Old Me Say? :)

And the correct answer is NOTHING. 80 year old you is busy farting unapologetically in the drugstore because she's 80!

Lol! I'll just walk around like I'm Betty White. She's 90 but same difference.

I've been thinking about WWEYOMS lately. I think it would be "Why didn't you relax more and stop being so frenetic???"
