No. Not that kind of quickie. This is a family show, people.
I got in two quickies last week at the gym. I left work tired, beaten, worn down, and went anyway. And I’m proud of myself for going. I bumped up the difficulty on the elliptical and elliped for 30 minutes each time.
I can’t say that this paid off at all in the way of a lower number on the scale (because it didn’t. Not even half a pound. but this isn’t about weight loss.) but it paid off in the sense that I pushed myself to do something I didn’t think I could do. And I felt good after going.
I didn’t think I could make it at a level 6 for 30 minutes. And I did.
So YAY me.
This week is going to be busy. It’ll be full of birthday cake and pizza and cupcakes and snacks. It will also be full of not a lot of time for the gym. But I’m going to try. I’m also going to try not to demolish the birthday cake.
I have an appointment with the personal trainer this afternoon and my plan is to talk to him about how I’m not comfortable doing weights without someone there to show me what needs to be done. I know I shouldn’t be, but I’m incredibly embarrassed for some reason. I feel like I need him to spell out exactly what I need to do for the next two weeks so that my workouts can be more effective.
So, we’ll see how it goes.
Are you on a healthy-living plan? What are you doing? How are you doing with sticking to your goals?
