*Note after reviewing: ... the lighting is sooo much worse once it uploaded, than on my camera, I swear! Ridiculous!*
Well today has felt like a rather productive day... we started our day running by Wal Mart for a few exercise (other essential) clothes items, another place, then the Y, for our first day! :-) We definitely took advantage of our first day, with all of their exercise equipment! I hardly broke a sweat, and had a lot of fun! When I was kid, I thought of exercise machines, bars to hang from, etc. were all just really fun TOYS... I believe I've never grown out of that. ;-)
It's amazing how just setting a few goals on Sparkpeople can encourage you to enjoy it more! This 28-day Bootcamp Challenge is fun so far! I finished Day 3 about an hour ago. It was funny. A thaisce (William, his pet name, which is Scottish Gaelic, pronounced a häsh-k) and I walk into the house, and both exhausted, I say, "I still have my 10 minutes of strength training video today..." He said, "You're kidding!" LOL
I'm glad that we're both doing something to improve how long we'll live. Feels great in so many ways. :-D
*random note: the other day at Wal Mart, A thaisce left me to find a deodorant ( I was out), and an older gentleman, to my left, turns to me with a "green" bottle of Equate Mint mouthwash, and says, "Is this green or blue...?" I told him "Teal. A little bit of both." Just random. A thaisce and I think he was out on an errand for his wife...*
Y Workout today : Boy, did we take advantage of today! :-D We plan on going every Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday (weekdays after work). Every now and then (every other week maybe?), I may wake up early enough to go to their early morning Group Cycling sessions. :-) Once I've had a week of "fitness," I'm going to, aside from my cardio, do Group Cycling, Zumba (which I'm pretty sure I'll LOVE after reading about it), and Pilates. There's also Yoga Tuesday evenings... :-) Everything works with the schedule we want, so let's get to it! :-) I worked a while on the elliptical machines with A thaisce, then we both moved on to the treadmills. After that, I used my favorite machine for the longest, the Cycling. :-) After that, I did outer and inner thigh presses, then walked 22 laps ( a mile ), to cool down. :-) Productive day!
