not to bore you or anything...

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Today I did 35 minutes on the eliptical + ONE minute backwards!
Then I worked on all of the weight machines and when I left, even my hair was dripping wet with sweat. EWWWWWW!! I love it!

today at the Wellness Center

Friday, October 29, 2010

I learned something. I mean, I've heard it said before but never applied it to my life. I worked out this morning but found myself unable to do 30 minutes on the eliptical. I had to settle for 25 and that was pushing it. I really tried but I just couldn't do it. I did make the round of machines and worked on my leg and abdomen muscles. I left my shoulders and arms till next time because they are bothering me. I've had a big problem with a frozen shoulder for months.
Anyway, here's what I figured out - I wasn't properly hydrated. I did have my bottle of protien water with me, but the problem was BEFORE I went to work out. I only had 2 cups of coffee with my oatmeal and yogurt before I left the house. It wasn't that hard to figure out. I just had to go over what I did differently this time.

So I'll do better next time.

    I've heard this, I've avoided it as I don't want to have to 'go' in the middle of my walk or workout. How do we solve this problem?

Not gonna sabotage myself this time

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I'm guilty of sabotaging myself when I have a little progress to show. It usually goes like this: I make a breakthrough and loose weight, followed by losing myself and eating right back into that hole that I fell into in the first place.

Today I made 30 minutes on the eliptical. This is HUGE for me. It wasn't a fast clip. It wasn't on an incline. I didn't win any race. But I lasted for 30 minutes. A grand milestone! Afterwards, I went to the weight room and started on the machines there. I try to time it so that I'm finished before the 'hard-bodies' come in - the young jocks who, when they see me, think they see their mom or even their grandmother. So today there was only one other person with me in the weight room. He was a man with only one hip and he was working out his upper body muscles. We got to talking and he was telling me that he hopes to get a new hip and he wants to be ready for it. Then he told me that his problem was that sometimes he stops coming to the gym routinely and it is hard as hell to get started back up again. He made me think. I sabotage myself too. Why?? Success. My fear of success. I never thought about it like that before, but that has to be what it is. What's the matter with me? Do I think I don't deserve to be great?

Not anymore. I DO deserve to be great. And firm. Oh yeah, and proud of myself too. I did 30 minutes on the eliptical? YESSSSS! I felt the 'burn'! I got the runner's high (seriously?)!

I'm not going to sabotage myself anymore.

    Look at you! The workout queen! I never could do the elliptical for some reason. I actually rode my bike pedaling backwards last night. Who knew...can;t go forward try backwards and it worked! Hoping to go home in January to see mom and family, show off my new knee. Maybe we can try to hook up if weather and health works out.

    Eliptical is a LOT different than the stair master/stair stepper. SO much less stress on your joints and you can do just an upper body, just a lower body or a combined work out! I LOVE them!

Now, other than working out, how the heck are you?

I can't believe it

Friday, October 01, 2010

I am surprising myself. I found that I can now do 10 minutes on the elliptical. When I started, I could BARELY get to 6 minutes. And I've increased my program. Today I did some new machines to target my leg strength. Gotta a feeling I'm going to be sore tomorrow! I am already doing way more than I thought I would be and I am tickled pink. Ewww, I sweat and grunt and pant. But I love it.
