Keeping up with the gym

FunnyI had promised myself in one form or fashion that I'd do my best to keep up with the visits to the gym.  So today, despite feeling really tired and uninspired, I hauled myself off to gym for a quick visit.  At first I thought I'd just do 15 minutes on the treadmill, but I added in four leg machines as well, which makes me pretty chuffed that I did more than I had intended.  I know once I'm there I usually do more than I initially anticipated doing.   My legs are feeling a little bit achy this evening which is another good sign.
We did quite a bit of walking while down on the coast which helped in that I did not do nothing and become super lazy.  I also found that I went up the hills with ease, whereas before I'd have taken some strain after 20 metres and been battling to keep my breath even.  All these little visits, they all adding up. 
Now all I need to do is get back onto the Weigh Less eating plan and I should see those lumps 'n bumps start melting away.
I had considered hitting the pool this morning and I should have thought of that yesterday for Jarod when he had nothing to wear so opted out of visiting the gym.  It would be a nice change - hmmm I wonder where the swimming cap I bought is?
Happy day.

Getting the week off right

Gym goal for the week : 3 visits

Monday : Done and dusted.  I did much the same as last Monday which was hitting the treadmill, but I added 1000m row ... hmmm, me thinks the shoulders may complain a little.  Not overly exerted, but guys, its more than I did the entire year.

I was also thrilled to find that I earn 150 Vitality point for each visit to the gym.  I was a little peeved as when I mentioned it to one of the ladies at the reception previously, she did not listen to me and I have lost 750 points in total.  But after visiting the Discovery site yesterday to see my progress and point status, I decided that today I'd take my card out and find someone to answer my questions and thankfully the young man on reception was in the know.  

Go me on Monday : I also hopped on the scale when I got to the gym and I've lost 500g.  (This is weight with my clothes and shoes on so its almost a kg more than what my home scale says).  Its moving slowly in the right direction after having gone up and up over the last 2.5 months.

Hope your day was fabulous.

Working out

Where  Glenvista Fitness

When   September 11, 2013

Time     07:15

I hit the gym again this morning and did the above routine.  I decided to hit the treadmill for a 'fat burn workout' and concentrated on my legs today.  I'm wondering how sore its going to be tomorrow morning.  I'm stoked that I got off my butt and have been to the gym twice this week and for achieving my goal for the week of two visits a week as per this post.. No promises, but I am scheduling in my mind a visit on Friday where I'll work arms. 

Besides getting an email off to Anabela, its the only other thing on my List of Intentions I've achieved, but then, we have a good few days still to go in this month.
Tonight is our monthly Sistas Dinner.  I'm looking forward to seeing my sisters and catching up on their news.  I'm considering suggesting a monthly sisters get together on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon to scrapbook.  I have tons of scrapbooking products and just never get around to scrapbooking, maybe I should throw the idea onto the table this evening and see what comes out of it.  I haven't scrapbooked in almost two years now, but often still buy goodies.  I sometimes think I'll just put it all up for sale - but my heart just won't allow me to.
So now its time to hit the shower and get the day going.  I have lots I intend doing today - and its almost 09:00.
Hope your day is fabulous.
