Hit the Gym!


Finally back to the gym. Next week, I start a new workout program (LIIFT 4), and it has THREE rest days. Those three rest days, I’ll be doing C25K. I had to promise to NOT do double-workouts, so I’ll be doing the C25K stuff Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.

I Got In a Workout!

First, I got to see how well my HR monitors all matched up. The treadmill reading is the most accurate because it was picking up my Polar H10. I’m happy with those results!

Yeah, I ran for 20 minutes. It doesn’t sound like much.

No, screw that. Not saying that. It’s big. For me. I don’t care about how well you can do. I did amazing. I kicked ass. But I did it! For me. And me alone.

Keep on Moving

Josh and I were talking last night, again, about when we get a house, :lol:. One of the things we discussed was a “work-out” room. He wants a weight bench, but wants to also look at ellipticals and treadmills. We’re not 100% sure on which one we’d rather get. Personally, I like the treadmill. I’ve used both at the gym, and I like the adjust-ability of the treadmills. 🙂

Bleh, I Suck

I didn’t work out yesterday, at all. I did do two loads of dishes. But that doesn’t count. Seriously, I need a treadmill so I can do something active without feeling like I’m being active. Seriously. I used one at Julie and Mark’s gym, and good lord, I was in heaven (Julie can vouch for that, I had a grin the whole time). Sadly, we don’t have space for one in the complex, nor do we have the funds for a gym so I could use one with greater regularity 🙁 I checked the cost of the local YMCA and they charge over $70 a month for families. I understand some of the cost, but it’s supposed to be the “cheaper” investment. I can’t afford $70 a month on top of my other bills, especially since I’m not sure how often I could make it there. $70 a month, just for me, would mean 14 days at Julie’s gym ($5 for a guest to visit). That’s going every other day, just to make it justifiable. O.o Oh, I would love to be able to do that, but even with the fact that it’s only 15 minutes away, I can’t justify the gas expense either.

Ugh, I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. I get so sick and tired of working out in front of a tv, though 🙁
