Get moving or get out of the gym.

I was not very motivated today. SO...this blog is a rant about people at the gym.

    It's okay to have an off day and a time to rant. I don't go to a traditional gym anymore, but now use a rock climbing gym, home dvd's and the skating rink. I do know those kind of people you're talking about. I personally can't have a phone with me when doing things like the cardio machines. I would get distracted and not work out efficiently. Now if the gym wasn't very crowded then machine hogs can have at it, but at peak times they need to be more considerate. I experience climbing hogs at the climbing gym. There was a guy and his teenage daughter who started climbing on the wall right beside me after I started and you're not supposed to do that. I'm still a beginner at climbing and I guess they feel like they own the place. Needless to say that I keep an eye out for them at any skating rink...maybe they might take a spill because of something I do, just kidding. But it is irritating. Some people really lack manners and need to be put in their place.

    I'm not a gym-goer because we live out in the sticks, so I'm not really missing much, am I?! Ha! I know that if I was a gym-goer, I would rant about that too. That would bug me to no end. Some people just don't get it, do they? I mean they must be paying some good $ to get there. And then what??! I think that I would eventually just have to try to put some earplugs in and do my exercising and get out of there. As long as there would be an available machine for me. If not and someone was just occupying one that was needed, I'd take that fact right to the owner. I admire your discipline and you have more determination to move then I do some days! I got on my recumbent bike for 10 min. today for the first time since about October, because of my bum knee and then with having my knee replaced on Dec. 15th, I'm just now getting back on it!! Yippee! So I 'll be getting more and more back on it! Yay, because there's no way of walking outside in this below zero weather and snow and ice too! Hugs, Karen

    Hi, I am Pinewashington:
    I have been away for a good while, last summer I lost about 30lbs with out trying, now that I am getting more want to lose the extra weight, It's seem so much harder. I go to the gym when I can, I try and do well about my food and calorie intake, and some days, the few pounds that I have lose seem to mean nothing. I n'eed to listen to your day to make me more in touch with what I am doing wrong.
