I am not talented enough for that machine!!!

Thursday, May 19, 2011

So I went to the gym today. Did 20 minutes on the treadmill and another 10 on the bike. It would have been more, but shocker of all shockers, I had to pee. lol After that I decided I'd try the elliptical. Who exactly designed that torture device?!? Either I am WAY not coordinated enough to do it, or I'm about a year away from being healthy enough to do it. I didn't even bother logging it on my fitness because I only made it 2 minutes. lol I thought the tops of my thighs were going to burst into flames right there at the gym!

After the machines (and the torture) I did some ab work on the equipment. My gym only has 3 different machines for abs, and only one was on the strength training list, so I only logged that one. It was good though. I took a friend of mine with me. She's going to be joining SP pretty soon. YAY!!

After the gym, we took our stinky selves to Cracker Barrel so I could have the salad I didn't get yesterday. It was just as yummy today. Even better actually, because they didn't forget the feta cheese this time. :D

I'm done watching my shows for the night, so I'm going to drag my sore legs to the tub for a nice, hot soak. I'm at 87 fitness minutes today, and I'm itching to do another 13 just so I can be at 100 two days in a row. Do I sound like an exercise junky yet? I'm starting to feel like one. lol

Have a great night everyone!!!

    Lol! You are too much! I'm sure you will be able to do the eliptical in no time!!! It's fun once you get the hang of it, or I should say, the one they had at the ymca when I used to go a couple years ago, was fun. I'm sure it depends on the style, they have so many different ones! Glad to hear you got your salad finally! Hope everything was okay with your boss. Glad to hear you have a friend to join you in your workouts, even more motivation!! woo hoo! And that will be awesome if she joins SP!!! You will have to let me know when she does so I can add her! Have a good weekend, I will be in and out so I will be on here enough to keep up, but maybe not as much as usual! So, I will probably send you a spark mail to check in with you on Sunday. K talk to you soon! Keep up the great work on all those fitness minutes, that's Awesome!!! :)

    LOL You always make me smile. I suppose being addicted to exercise would be bad, but I don't think you are quite there yet. You are just enjoying your new active lifestyle. I think you are doing amazing! :) Keep doing it! Have a great weekend!

    The first time I got on the elliptical I only made it three minutes. Six weeks later it is my favorite machine and I can make it a full workout. It will come! Keep getting on it, even if you can only get on it for a few minutes each time. Maybe start there and finish out your time on the machines you usually use. I had to play with a few things like figuring out that I can't do no resistance on the elliptical, it feels out of control. But at a 3, I'm happy. Now I can cycle it up and do some at a 7, etc.
    Just keep trying! emoticon
