Do you guys belong to gyms? Do you like it? Is it tough to work it in?
So the other day I signed up for a free 3 day trial at the gym up the street. A friend signed up with me and so off we went. They have a pool! Which is why I chose them over some other gyms.
I love swimming, even if it pretty much makes me feel like I'm gonna die, and watching nekkid old ladies walk around is less than awesome...
Anyhow, we went in, got dressed and hopped on the machines for a bit. We were only there for 80 mins because my friend had to go to work, but I did a stationary bike, then a cross trainer thing that is sort of like an elliptical, and then I swam. I'll fess up here and say I was only able to swim like 9 or 10 laps. (Lost count I think?)
Anyhow, my bikini bottoms were too big and were sliding down, I got a new pair yesterday. So hopefully that will make it a bit easier. I feel when I'm doing certain activities like I can't get a full breath, kind of the way my seasonal asthma feels, like just annoying to be short of a full breath by about a quarter of my lungs. I'm wondering if taking my inhaler might help me? I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens.
I work 11-2 tomorrow, nice short shift early in the day, on the way home I'm gonna stop at the gym and spend some time there, then friday very early I'll do the same. (I work from 11-9:30 so gotta go crazy early to take advantage of my last free day!) I also believe I WILL be joining on friday. I have the money set aside already and everything.
I could see myself being that kind of person, the kind of person who goes to the gym, not to con myself into exercising ("Well if I spend this money maybe I'll do it!")
Cuz I already do it at home, but there is a lot more offered there in terms of what I can do. I want to be the person who gets up early and heads to the gym or shows up after work because they know it's what's best for them.
That is who I want to be.
Also my weight has finally stopped bouncing around. I gained 6 lbs overnight the other day from bloating due to my monthly visitor. ANGER. But it's gone now and I am hoping by Sunday's weigh in for the challenge that I'm down at LEAST to 229. So frustrating!
