So, I've Actually Been Going to the Gym...


Another recipe I want to try from Pinterest.  I joined a gym so that hopefully I can still eat stuff like this.  :-)  Photo from Parttimehousewife.com

So it's been a month now and I thought I'd give you an update on how the gym is going.  (In case you missed the previous post(s) about this, I am tired of dieting and although it would probably be easier to take a diet pill like apidextra, I decided to try getting rid of my "Christmas Blubber" by joining a gym.)

Well first of all, I am actually going - didn't just sign up and go two times and then give up, lol...

Surprisingly, I really really like going to the gym.  Believe me, no one is more surprised about this than me.  I've always hated exercise.  My goal was to go to the gym at least 3 times a week, and I've met that goal and I think 3 out of the last four weeks I went four or five times a week.  I haven't lost a ton of weight - only about 4-5 lbs so far, but I didn't expect weight to come off fast - just glad it's coming off.  I'm also starting to really notice my endurance and strength increasing.

I mostly like to use the elliptical and the treadmill.  They have tvs in front of all the machines and you can use earbuds with it to hear the sound, or put on closed captioning and just read what is being said (that's what I do).  Definitely helps it from being too boring, and I've even noticed some days I don't even watch tv, I just daydream in my own little Carole World.

Do you go to a gym?  What do you like to do at the gym?

The end.

  1. Good for you! Slow and steady weight loss is the way to do it. I love going to the gym. I usually go 3-4 times per week. I do 2 miles on the tread mill, alternating between jogging and walking and listen to my ipod and watch tv while doing so. Then I work a different muscle group each day on the machines. I finish up with leg stretches on the floor mats. It usually takes me about an hour total. Keep up the good work!

I read each and every comment, and though I don't always get a chance to respond, I enjoy reading (and pondering) what you have to say. Thanks for your 2 cents! :-)
