Instead, Dr Pop and I went to the gym where I...
- Spent 25 minutes running on the treadmill
- Worked my abs on two ab machines
- Worked on my shoulders
- Worked on my arms
- Spent 5 minutes on the elliptical
I can hardly move today.
I have been doing some sporadic swimming here and there. But to be perfectly frank here, I've been mostly a lazy bum. It should be no surprise then that my laziness is noticable on, well, my bum!
I returned to the gym yesterday.
So there you have it! I'll be removing the countdown ticker when I get back and will really go to town with this blog. I need all the motivation I can get once the beach vacation is over.
Today, I've done very well so far with the eating, but my measure is how much of Boy Pop's Easter candy I consume after I get home. I'll more than likely do a Turbo Jam as Dr Pop will be driving home from a business trip during our normal gym time.
Those songs took me to over 30 minutes of cardio. And the ebb and flow of the music really made me get on it.
Sadly, my new gym does not have any classes to take, but that's okay. I get a session with a personal trainer instead. I already have my appointment made.
I cannot give up my Exercise on Demand or my Turbo Jam, but going to the gym with my family was fun. I'm glad we are doing this.
But there are also a few cons about going to the gym, even if it is nearby...
I think, though, in the long run, I'll have Dr Pop riding my ass enough that I won't be able to help but get my buns over to the pretty new gym and use the equipment there.
Wish me luck!
Oh, and this week will be light on the exersize, I'm afraid... I didn't work out yesterday as I was too busy celebrating the new membership (yes, I know this is weird). I won't work out tomorrow as I will be sitting in a salon chair getting my roots touched up. I won't work out on Thursday as I will be preparing for a lovely birthday dinner.
That leaves today, Friday, and Saturday for the workouts. I plan to check out the gym tonight.
Put it all in a little shaker, shake for 15 seconds, and drink.
Apparently, you get 10 servings of organic vegetables in one shot!
It is totally and completely disgusting, but I'm going to do this for two full weeks. They say that it is an acquired taste. I'm not sure it's one I really want to acquire, but if it will make my skin glow the way she says it will and if it will give me more energy and make me feel better, then it is worth a shot.
Last night, my mom, dad, and I each mixed up a little cocktail and chugged it. At least I didn't have to go it alone, eh?
And no, I have totally not been exercising. But I did load a workout playlist on my iPod!
Hopefully having the new playlist and the green sludge in my system will get me off my ass and out the door running...
More to come...
