Exercise & the airport...

Monday, October 12, 2009

On Saturday evening, I went to the gym for the first time in years. It's actually open 24 hrs-one of those key fob things my friend has access to in her development. So around 730 pm we hit the gym. I ended up doing 33 minutes on the treadmill. Then I decided to get bold and tried the eliptical-OMG!!!!! Was ready to stop under 2 minutes but I did a full 6 minutes. GO ME! Then I went around on the weight machines. I did the leg press (thought of you TRAVELNISTA) but it was a different set up then the one I used to love doing years ago. The tricep machine was good then I switched to the hand weights to work on the ol' biceps. Lastly, I did another 18 minutes on the treadmill. I was pleasantly surprised last night that I was not sore-nor am I this morning. I guess I did some great stretching on my muscles!!! My friend & I are planning to hit the gym every Fri & Sat night.

Yesterday, my mom left for France for 2 1/2 weeks. I'm still waiting for her to call me that she has arrived at my grandmothers. Kind of holding my breath until I do. But got lots of walking in at the airport.

Here's to a great week filled with healthier choices & lots of exercise!

    Way to go on getting in the gym. The elliptical can be mentally and physically challenging on the first attempt. You will notice that you can gradually increase your time. Stay with it, the elliptical is a great way to get in cardio. Have a great week!
