First Fitness Center Morning!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Finally made it to the fitness center this morning! Only had enough time for 30 minutes on the Cybex Arc Trainer, but am hoping to expand a bit so that I can either add another 30 mins. on another piece of cardio equipment (so MANY to choose from!) or a 30 mins. routine on the various strength building gadgets.

Over the weekend I enjoyed our several inches of more snow and getting out there for some more snow shoveling...my mp3 player makes ALL the difference!

Took a couple hours to do our driveway and our neighbor's. She drove home just after I finished and said "you didn't have to do that!"

I shrugged and said: "blame it on my mp3 player...kept dishing up irresistable tunes!" :-)

Have a SUPER day everyone!

    Hi Don! I love your wall paper. It allows me to escape from our Ohio winter scene for a moment.
    I'm NOT enjoying the big digs. Kids are off school today and I have a mountain of snow to shovel before we get out to go snow skiing. The mp3 idea may do the trick, though.
    Happy shovelling! emoticon emoticon

    Woohoo! I've been gone for a couple of weeks and you've been sick and joined a fitness center all in that short time? You are one hard guy to keep up with, Don!

    when those tunes comes out just right, i find i'm going that extra time on the elliptical or treadmill, merely because the music fit the mood. enjoy!

    Such a sweetheart to do your neighbors drive... you seriously inspire me! By the way, your page bg pic is GORGEOUS... thanks for sharing it. Hope your wife is doing really well and that things are back to joyful for you both.

    Do you recommend any particular mp3 player? I've looked into getting one but I haven't made the commitment to one yet. lol

    I recently tried an elliptical for the first time and really like it. I'm sure it's much better for my crunchy-sounding knee to do that instead of jumping jacks. =)

    It's amazing what music can do to lighten the heavy load of snow shovelling! I spent many years in VT, used to snow shovelling STILL!!! (I've been in Indiana 5 now...but the memory of snow-filled shovels still haunts me!) LOL!

    I would hate the shoveling even more without my mp3 player!

    Amazing how music can inspire you to move. Enjoy the snow.

    I usually put my mp3's on shuffel and because of that, there are days when the music is right and I get into a zone. Then there are the days when the music doesn't touch me and I struggle with getting my cardio minutes in. There are some days when I don't need the music at all as the sounds and the people around me get me into the zone.

    Glad you enjoyed your gym experience AND your snow shoveling! Glad we don't have any here today!

    I will have to google cyber arc trainer! Good job getting all that snow shoveled! I'm sure your neighbor was thrilled to have it done when she got home! We have a light layer this morning and very light snow today.
