Last night I got a call from a trainer at the gym. I explained my situation and this guy (sounds like an idiot over the phone) said he will show me around the gym and go over some stuff I can do. We set an appointment for 11am today. Immediately after that, I will have to go see Forgetful but that’s the only job I have today.
Let’s see if he’s smarter in person than he was on the phone! I gave him a ton to think about. I think he wasn’t sure what I can do but said he will try. I don’t want what they call a “smart start”, that’s doing things ON MY FEET!!! And of course, that was the first thing he mentioned. So we shall see. I am going to go early and do the row machine for 20 minutes so I at least get something done.
I talked to a guy I know that used to be a personal trainer at the Y in New York and he told me basically what I can do. Now to see if this trainer guy says the same thing. My guy friend said I can do any weight machine that doesn’t have to do with my feet. Any leg exercises, arm exercises, and for cardio, keep going on the row machine.
I got on my scale a day early and that was a mistake. It shows a 2 pound gain! Well, I do feel crappy since I haven’t really gotten much exercise this week. Going from 7 days to 2 killed me. This foot needs to heal quick! I’m not a happy camper!!!
As you can tell, I’m NOT hitting any goals right now. So yeah, I need to do something. And yeah yeah, muscle weighs more than fat and I am starting to use weight machines. Don’t worry, I am measuring myself as well for a better look. That was horrible when I did it though the other day. I felt HUGE when I saw the numbers on the measuring tape!!!
It’s cold and yucky down here in Texas. I still have to walk my doggie too so I’m sorry to say that I am walking on concrete against doctors orders. Not too far, just around the block. I just hope I don’t hurt myself further! Last night, I hurt bad. I took Advil and was in bed at 9:30. My son woke me up at midnight to ask what was wrong with his phone and why it wouldn’t charge. I turned it off and on again and then plugged it in and wouldn’t you know it, it started charging no problem! The problems of a 12 year old in this day and age. 🙄
My friend wanted to get together for a margarita yesterday but I was working so much that I couldn’t. 😞 Not only did I do all 3 jobs, I also made food for the 2 other people in my house and went to buy more dog food. It was a busy day, no wonder my foot hurt! While I was with the couple, they wanted lunch so I suggested barbecue. They loved the idea and I went to their favorite spot and even got myself some chopped beef to take with me last night to see Forgetful. That worked out well for me. All of the ladies at her table were a bit jealous though! Oops 😬
So I’ve already walked the dog and successfully avoided my mother so far this morning. Now to go to the gym in a bit and post later to tell you guys what happened!
