My Gym

This is where I have been spending four or five times a week since January 1st. The gym has a key pass system and is open seven days a week from 6am – 9pm. On weekdays I go right after I get out of work. Now, I have NEVER, in my 50 years, done any kind of exercise or sports related activity. I have been walking a three mile route about four times a week for fifteen years but I have now found out that it’s not a “get your heart going activity.” For some reason, I love this gym. It takes me about one hour to go around the circuit of 12 machines which includes stretching at the end. Mick asked me which machine I like best and I told him I liked the stretching. : ) The morning after my third workout I was so sore I didn’t think I would be able to get out of bed. I finally decided I needed to get up and was prepared to crawl into the bathroom if I had to. My poor muscles are most likely shocked that they are being used and I do feel bad for them, and they thought they were going to get thru life without having to work.

Good for you! Just three weeks ago, K joined our city "activities center" where she does water aerobics (low-impact for her joints/back) four times a week. She is already able to stretch in ways she couldn't in years, and she feels stronger (though sorer) as well.

I've just been running four or five times a week to lose my gut and my extra chins. It hasn't worked yet.

See my first blog post. GEL-Oh has a link.

ke, I'll do it. I haven't spent much time on this, so I have to figure out how! I didn't know I had to do anything.
