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.
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. 🙂
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 🙁
