I love my gym!

Saturday, July 03, 2010

The past few days I couldn't go to my women's gym since they're closed for renovations. I didn't want to fall behind in my strength training, so I went to the community centre instead. That, of course, is co-ed. I don't have any problems working out with men; after all at karate we work out together, punch each other, throw each other down and help each other up. But those two days in a co-ed gym were very different. The machines were all unfamiliar, and I swear the weights are increasing in bigger intervals. Of course they're all set for 6'5" body builders so I had to reset every one of them both for my size and the weight I'm using. Felt like putting the toilet seat down, over and over and over.

I've always thought gym membership is expensive but for $42 per month I can go as often as I want. Here I had to pay almost $6 for one visit! (Thanks to the HST emoticon)

Anyway, my gym will re-open on Monday. I know I will appreciate it even more now.

    Renovations suck! Our pool was out of commission for 9 months, and now they are resurfacing the deck again....oy!

Yay for being back in your gym though!

Gardening "Firsts" for the year

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Summer was a long time coming but maybe it has finally arrived.
Yesterday:
o First time I had to water my garden
o First couple of ripe raspberries
The watering part is not my favourite, but getting fresh raspberries definitely IS! Take this, sinfully expensive produce store!

Bonus!

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

I'm taking transit to work more often now - price of gas, and it's the right thing to do. Anyway, with all this cardio and strength training it's a lot easier for me to run for the bus, or up the stairs for the train. It's all good!

New Project

Saturday, June 19, 2010

A friend gave me some lovely royal blue mohair wool some time ago. I've finally found a pattern for a hooded cardigan with zipper; so I'm happily working away on my new project. I'll be sure to call on my knitter friends for advice to put in the zipper!
