I tried a new cardio machine today...kind of looks like a pair of skis. I did 10 minutes of that and then headed downstairs to the weights. I started with 5lbs free weights. Then worked to the deltoid machine and then to the chest machine. I kept wanting to try this and that but my trainer said that you should never do a full body workout in one workout so I just focused on my arms and shoulders today. I also kept remembering what my trainer had told me, "...

I didn't have any motivation yesterday. I didn't even workout. :( I was busy yesterday morning and the mornings are the only time of day that I have any energy it seems. I was pretty disappointed in myself because of not working out and then feeling guilty for not blogging too (which is one of my goals, to blog everyday).

I got out of bed and was surprised to feel how sore I am! Whew! My arms are killing me BUT it feels good! I washed my face, brushed my teeth, put my hair in a ponytail and headed out the door. When I got to the gym, I stared my 10 min. of cardio on the elliptical. It went by really fast because I watched the news. Then, I made my way to the women's workout area. I started on the machine where you sit and open and clo...

I joined a gym about a 2 weeks ago and have gone 4 times since I joined. One night, for some reason, I was unable to sleep. I felt anxious. I had so many things running through my mind (work, my sister's pregnancy, a job that I applied for, and just random things). I suddenly got the urge to go swimming. I'm a Pisces and so I love water. Mind you, I haven't swam laps in years. So, in the morning at 6am, I drove to Walmart an... Fri, 12 Oct 2012 00:21:31 EST
