Getting off my lazy butt

So I finally went back to the gym after 2 months. It was not a pretty sight, and because I felt like I needed to atone for my absenteeism, I decided to get on the elliptical machine (my dreaded enemy). It was painful! I have always hated that machine, and today was no different. I see these ladies on the elliptical, and they are working it like it's their job! I can barely stand to be on it for more than 5 minutes, and these ladies are on there for 15+ minutes (one was even on her cell phone--really? At the gym? Is that necessary?) I did, however, have my trusty IPod to help me get through the workout. Here's what I was sweating to:

**Mr Brightside--The Killers

**Viva La Vida--Coldplay

**Jump--Madonna

**Evenflow--Pearl Jam

**Crazy--Seal

**I'm Not Over--Carolina Liar

**Stolen---Dashboard Confessional

**Icky Thump--The White Stripes

I also took a peek at the schedule of classes they offer, and I have been wanting to take a yoga class for a while, so I may do that this week. I've never done yoga before, so hopefully I don't look like an idiot!!
