I went to the GYM!!! To actually work out and not run on the treadmill!!! This is a first for me in YEARS!!! My hubby bought us a gym membership at Christmas time to Anytime Fitness....he uses it but I've only used it to run on the treadmill when I can't run outside. So one of my goals this week for the Weekly Chase is to do strength training twice this week. I did strength training for my arms using free weights here at home on Thursday. I knew I wanted to do some strength training for my legs so I planned to go to the gym this afternoon. The only downside to our gym is there is no child care so that limits the times I can go. I think Sunday afternoons are going to be one of the scheduled times for me...because I had the gym ALL to myself the first 45 minutes!!! Whoop! So of course I took advantage of that opportunity and took a picture of myself when no one was around to laugh at me!
I did some cross training on the recumbent bike. I haven't been on one of those in years! My goal was to ride about 30 minutes. I rode 35 because I was watching Wimbledon on the TV and I had to see Serena Williams win!
After the bike, people starting filing into the gym. And I started with my leg work. All I can say is that I'm going to be sore tomorrow! Hopefully I didn't overdo it...I tried to take it slow. But it will be worth it to be a healthier me!!!
This next week is going to be super busy for me. I am teaching 1st graders at our church's Vacation Bible School along with juggling summer school and T-Ball games! I love VBS week but it always poses challenges for me...resisting all the yummy food and getting in my runs/workouts because I'm so tired. I'm going to try to be strong and get it all done!!!
