So I started at the gym today on a trial membership. I was super nervous but my boyfriend walked me through it; he did his “pre-game” workout (he plays ball hockey in the summer) which is just five minutes of cardio and a quick weight session. Perfection.
Although, holy geez, do I ever need “work out” clothes. The pants I’m currently wearing have no elastic in the waist anymore, so they’re constantly falling down to around my hip level. Um, not cool? major annoyance? would be putting it mildly.
*ahem* but back to the subject matter – I did 5 minutes on a sit-down bike, then 6 different weight machines targeting, respectively, inner thighs, outer thighs, shoulders, back, triceps and chest press, just one or two rep(s) of 10, and then three quick laps of walking around the indoor track. The back/shoulders ones I did 100pounds, but most of them were 60-80. I was proud of myself, just a little; especially when the bf said he expected me to do less – I just love proving people wrong, especially boys. I’m *ahem* competitive that way.
I also had a look at the programs offered, and circled the ones I’m interested in. It’s quite varied (and punishing) – Monday: MaxMix (dance/cardio session) in the morning and then workout with K at night, Tuesday:lap swimming, Wednesday:AquaFit in the morning and Yoga Fusion at night, Thursday:lap swimming, Friday:AquaFit in the morning and workout with K at night, Saturday:workout with K and then Sunday:MaxMix 75. And then I think I shall crawl into a deep dark hole and die.
I’m curious to know – what does your workout schedule look like?
(oh, ps; weighed myself at the gym tonight, I’m back up to 284 *gag*. Can this be changed for FluffBusters?)
