Back to the Gym

Last night I made it back to the gym.  It took me almost a week!  I literally had not worked out since last week on Thursday and felt like a total bum, and it was aweful!  My workout consisted of “assisted” pullups, I am such a weenie.  I had 120 pounds of assistance! I was literally only pulling up 65 pounds, gotta get that better!  I also did “girlie” pushups, lunges, squats, sit-ups and then a stairmaster for about 10 minutes.  

Was this routine extremely difficult?  Naw, my legs are a bit sore today but not bad, and no I didn’t workout “that” long, but I got to the gym, got my heart rate up, and feel so much better for it. 

Tonight it’s back to the gym, and probably some quality time on the Precor AMT, I actually miss that machine, but they were all full last night 😦 Sad day.  I may also do some light weights for my arms tonight, since more than likely I’ll only do the AMT for half an hour or so, that’ll give me 20 minutes to do some other sort of exercise.

Gender Stereotype Reversals at a gym

OK, so here is the link to hilarity:

And now, you have to watch this, it’s freaking hilarious, and as a new-to-the-gym person, there are no words to how appropriate this is.

Life, Love and the Pursuit of Skinniness

Last night I started looking at gyms in the area, thinking if I have somewhere to go workout that isn’t crazy out of the way I might go…yeah…might.  Not.  Could.  Should.  But probably won’t.  I HATE working out.  Did I mention HATE?  I don’t know why it is exactly, it’s not like I have something so much better to do with my time, I mean, I watch specific TV shows each week…I don’t need to sit down and watch them every night as a guarantee.

I wonder if I decided that after I had dinner and fed the dogs (7:00) that I could go to the gym for an hour a night, round trip.  So, 15 minutes of driving and 45 minutes of working out.  It seems plausible.  Do this three nights a week and I’m only adding 135 minutes of shows to my DVR really.  The other 4 days of the week I could just watch shows like normal.  It all sounds easy, great and plausible, but some how I just really don’t see it happening, which sucks because I think I’m really going to need to tone up in order to keep getting smaller, rather than just lighter.

After a long day of work though, working out just seems like the last thing I want to do, and I can’t do it on the way home from work because my poor dogs have been kenneled since 8:15AM and I don’t get home until 5:45 as it is.  I don’t want to make it 6:45, that’s 10.5 hours they’re kenneled at a time!

So, how do I get around my hee’in and haw’in about this.  Not sure yet, but at least I’m putting it out there, the “Should Do It” and now the world can see it (or at least the people who visit my blog 😉 ).

That’s all for now folks, checkin’ in later after I try out my roast beef for dinner tonight.
