Inspired by gal at the gym

Monday, May 06, 2013

Today when I finished the gravitron (my favorite equipment at the gym) and moved over to the lats pull-down, a girl, who had just gotten on the bench next to it, was worried that she had interrupted my flow when she jumped onto the bench. To which I assured that she had not. We struck up a conversation and she told me she had lost 50 lbs since January!! emoticon
Wow I said, then I informed her that I had lost 25 lbs in the same time. she was genuinely pleased for me as well. It wasn't a long conversation since we were still in our routines, but we share our similar beliefs in how were successful. My first 10 weeks, I was phenomenal the past 6 weeks, while I have been good, I have become somewhat lax in certain areas. In turn, the progress has been slower.

She has given me some motivation to kick it up a notch.

BTW, missing out on the gym for 9 days while I was away, made the routine a killer today...so back at the gym tomorrow.
And the Cipro is working!!! emoticon

    Good on you for striking up a conversation....and good on you for significant weight loss since January....don't compare yourself to the gal at the gym...you're colleagues working on the same project.

    Yeah, I was on a business trip last week....focused on cardio instead of weights. I did chest & shoulders today, and man was I humbled!
