Today I went to the gym with my mom, my sister, and my sister's girlfriend. We were there for an hour. During that hour I did NOT stop working out! I tried like 5 different pieces of equipment. Overall I really liked the exercise bike and the elliptical. I didn't try the treadmill, because I hear so many stories of people dreading it (lol). I didn't think I'd like the gym, since there would be other people there, but I really do! I could see myself going there frequently. I am dependent on my mother for transportation, so whenever she's willing to drive me there I will definitely go. I did about 2.5 miles on the exercise bike and 1.5 on the elliptical. And I did additional exercise on other machines (but I forgot to keep track of my progress/mileage). I feel so accomplished. =] I got such a high after I was done. I don't get that high when I work out to a dvd at home. I still feel great afterwards, but I never feel like I want more (like I do when I'm done at the gym). I also discovered that watching the mile meter on the exercise equipment motivates me. In the first 2 minutes on the bike I found myself wanting to get off. I randomly decided to glance at the mileage meter and found myself wanting to push it higher and higher. In my head I told myself to stop the "game" at 2 miles, but a short while later I found myself at 2.5 miles. lol I would've kept going, but my mother told us it was time to go. =[
I hope my mother takes us back soon. It was an awesome first experience. Going to the gym made me love working out again. It was actually kind of fun. Exercising at the gym gives me an amazing rush.
That's all I wanted to blog. Talk to you all soon!
