Workout

My first day at the gym wasn’t too bad. I was VERY disappointed that they do NOT have a sitting elliptical. And there were NO trainers or help to be found! So I did find a girl that is the lifeguard that also works out and she showed me a few machines I could use to stay off my feet.

First, I did the rowing machine for 10 minutes. I didn’t think you guys need a picture of the rowing machine,

Next I did a bunch of arm weight machines, well, tried them. 20 reps on each machine.

Then I went on the bike. That was boring as hell to me. I wish they were next to a window at least! I looked out the window while on the rowing machine and that 10 minutes went fast!

Last, I did this arm machine although I have no clue what it’s called! I did 20 minutes on this.

I didn’t see anyone I know which is always nice. I would still rather go when there are less people but this place is not open really early and doesn’t stay open really late so there’s always people around.

I did break a sweat. My foot hurts like crazy too. So now I’m having my breakfast of chicken breast, cheddar cheese, and crackers.

Today I have to go see Cranky and Forgetful. So I’ll see Forgetful for lunch and then go to see Cranky. Her son is leaving tomorrow so I have to go by today. But I have to rest first so I’m watching an episode of Life Unexpected on Netflix and then will take a shower and skedaddle!

Have a great hump day!!!

  1. I’m sorry to hear they didn’t have the seated elliptical but it looks like a great gym! I think it’s great you’re not using your foot as an excuse to not workout, that’s huge! That arm machine looks pretty awesome my gym doesn’t have one of those, I guess different places cater to different needs. If they have a front desk person you could request the seated elliptical. Typically they have to order new equipment after a while so maybe they will take your feedback. The ones at the gym I go to were not there until a few people requested it and since your paying for it they should at least take your recommendation into consideration, it can’t hurt right?

    1. I asked and they said “Oh, I’m not sure. You’ll have to talk to someone upstairs.” And of course, nobody was upstairs! I’m not sure about this. I have the rest of the month to figure out if I want to stay here which is within walking distance or go to 24 hour fitness. I guess we’ll find out!

  2. Great keep going! Remember that half the battle is just showing up. And the other half is remembering that feeling of how you felt after you went to the gym. I get up at 4:30 a.m to workout. People ask me how…I say, it sucks but I remember that feeling of what it is like when I am done!

      1. Hey look start small its a marathon not a sprint! Most people go to the gym for a month then quit. I tell people if they are going only a few times a month but for 12 months vs 1 month. Thats a win! Just remember that feeling!
