orientation at the gym
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Yesterday was a good day. I went for my orientation to the gym. Ten minute warm up on a recumbent bike. Already an improvement over the last one I used which gave me a blister on my thigh from friction! I could feel the strain in my bad knee but I could manage that. Then on to the Machines. This was always my favorite part of exercising. The strength work. The young man who oriented me was surprised that I knew what I was doing. That for me is one of the pleasures of getting older. The young are so easily surprised! I ended the orientation on the rowing machine which I had never used before. It was easier on my knees and I'll be doing that again for aerobic exercise.
All of this change is showing results. I weighed in this morning at 376.6. And that is after having a housewarming on Sunday and dangerous food left over!
