Just had a great workout at the gym. I have been trying to push myself a little more each time. And by little...I do mean little. Like never increasing each exercise more than 10 repetitions from the last time. I have however tried to increase the elliptical to however far I feel I can go.... without overdoing it. I think I remember my trainer telling me that I should try to build up to being "out of breath" at the end of a workout. I came closer to that today, but not quite. My biggest goal right now is to just go everyday or at least 5 days a week and not slack off at all. So far...I have achieved that.
I get emails from the gym, and the one I got today said something like...Now that you have been going for a few weeks, you should start seeing some results. Well...not really. I don't think anyone that looks at me would think I go to the gym. Ha.. But I do feel better and that is hopefully what they meant. The great thing about this particular gym is that I don't feel self-conscious at all. I see women and men that are my age and older and some that are in a little worse shape than me, and I feel like we are there just trying to get healthier...and that in itself is a great feeling. I used to go to Vic Tanney about 20 years ago with a friend and I just felt like it was a show-off your body place....or someplace to try and meet someone if you were single.
Well...we are barely into winter and I am already missing sunny days and flowers. The orchid in my bathroom is almost ready to burst out! Can't wait!!
