So I finished my 100th day in a row of exercise yesterday!! And.... it kind of sucked. lol Not quite the exciting event I thought it would be. I was just really tired and not into doing the boot camp type moves my sister wanted to do, so I just did one set of cardio moves and one set of arm moves and a couple core moves and burned like 133 calories in 16 minutes. But I still did SOMETHING, and that's what matters. :)
Starting next week, I'm hitting the gym that I've been paying for and not using a lot. :) I mostly joined so that I'd have a place to run in the summer/fall when it's 90 or 100 degrees here. And the best deal was to sign a 15 month contract ($25 a month!), so I've still got my membership and I need to use it! I also joined so that I could go to Zumba, but I didn't really like the instructor. Maybe they have a new one by now?
ANYWAY... I'm going to lift. I'm thinking Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. I got one of the New Rules for Lifting books in the hope that my husband would join me, but he's not ready yet. So I just download the New Rules of Lifting for Women by Lou Schuler and I'm going to get some kind of tracking paper or app or something--maybe even paper and pencil and clipboard!--and head to the gym on Monday and down into the free weight dungeon!!!!! (it's really just a sunken down lower level). I'm not going to "do the machines," I'm going to do squats or deadlifts or whatever else is good for me and I'm NOT going to let feeling awkward stop me! lol
And big thanks to BEECHNUT13 for the inspiration!!
