A couple of posts and maybe two weeks ago I blogged that I joined a gym. Gold’s Gym, in fact. I just wanted to give a quick update as to how that is going.
I finally met with my personal trainer this week. OMG, it was brutal. She has me working with free weights and I have an entire circuit of exercises that I have to do. She asked me what areas I wanted to work on the most. I told her my arms, stomach, and inner thighs. So, I am doing exercises just for that. I then went straight from the circuit workout to a Bodyflow class. My inner thighs were screaming at me by the end of the Bodyflow class, but it was good.
Now here are my litany or excuses as to why I have not been to the gym more often. Last weekend I went to Pittsburgh to help my mom. Wednesday’s and every other Thursdays I have writer’s groups meetings, which I had both this week. I did take Wednesday off and left work early on Thursday, so theoretically I could have gone to the gym. Wednesday, I was sick all day before writer’s group and Thursday I was trying to catch up on sleep. Normally, on Fridays I go to Jazz in the Sculpture Garden. I did that last Friday before going to Pittsburgh. And Monday, well, I was just plain lazy.
I need to get better at this if I really want to lose these last 53 pounds and whip my butt into shape. I don’t know if I am going to do Jazz in the Garden tonight, especially since I will have my work computer in tow. I haven’t heard from my friends who do the jazz, so I am still apt to change my mind.
My goal is to try to get to the gym tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday at the very least. I need to also go on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Wednesday, is writer’s group. Thursday should be back to the gym. And that’s all the further I will commit to for now. I don’t want to make too many promises too far into the future. I’m taking it one week at a time.
Also potential weekend agenda items:
- Visit with my sister.
- Visit with my brother and his wife and daughter. (may be combined with sister visit…my sis-in-law’s birthday is coming up…shhh)
- Writing – I have two essays I want to finish and I need to work on my novel.
- Create new web platform for blogs – I am going to stay with WordPress, but I might be creating a static web page where I can put links to both of my blogs, my Twitter account, my Facebook pages, and my bio just to have a centralized platform…more on that later.
Wish me luck with my commitment to working out almost every day this next week! Have a great weekend everyone!
