When I first created this blogger account I linked it with my Windows profile and decided I didn't like that. I tried to unlink it a couple weeks ago so this is a test to see if it will still appear on my windows profile page. I don't know why it bugged me-- I just didn't like seeing all of my blog titles lined out like that. I'm a freak, I know. I'm sure I'll probably end up re-linking it in the end.
I joined a 24 hour gym Thursday. It's close to my house, too, which is awesome. I like that its open 24/7... when I was struggling to find time to get there today I remembered being a member at the YMCA and always having a very hard time fitting it in to my schedule. Today I went from 8:45 PM to about 10:30 PM. Yesterday I went from 8:45 PM to 9:45 PM. I think the YMCA closed by like 9, (and way earlier on the weekends)-- which is nearly impossible for me most days. And, I liked going to this new gym late because basically no one was there! A few guys lifting and a couple of girls on the cardio machines. I explored quite a bit and played around with several different machines. LOL--I also saw a stool/platform type thing that I watched a girl cry over on the show Biggest Loser recently. They told her to jump on the stool. She couldn't or wouldn't, I don't know which. When I saw the same type of stool at the gym tonight I really, really bad wanted to try to jump on it. I didn't have the guts. I was afraid I might kill myslef!! If I hadn't watched that show and someone said to me- "jump onto that stool" I'd be like, ummm-- ok! Now it seems pretty scary to me!!! LMAO
So-- I was told I should keep a log of what I am doing each day, so I can track my progress. I'm good at doing what I'm told so I think I will. I'm not sure it matters at this point, I just want to be doing something. I tried to blame my most recent weight gain on the medicine I'm taking but when I mentioned it to my doctor he basically said no, it wasn't. Now unfortunately he has a note in my file to get my weight at each visit. =( If I didn't feel like a lab rat before that kinda pushed it over the edge for me. Weight loss would be a nice side effect of the exercise. I have a bunch of pants that I can't wear right now and its pissing me off!! =) I also plan on going down hill skiing at least once this winter so I need to prepare for that. I don't want to live my life worried about the "what ifs" all the time, so I decided I'm not going to. :p
For the generic log- tonight I focused on lower body--legs/hips. I did the oblique machine and a lower back machine too. Then I did 1 mile on the eliptical, cardio routine. Oh! I also tried this other thing where you kind of hang and bring your knees up to your chest. I did 10 reps twice on that. You press against this comfy half ball deal and as I lifted my legs I could feel my spine snap crackle and popping. I actually laughed out loud! I really should go see the chiro... lmao.
