Haven’t officially “weighed in” in a while. Still don’t have a scale at home, so I use the weights and lever one in the locker room at my gym. Tonight? 208!!! I’m down 1 pound from last week. I worked out super hard last week, but after soreness/issues with a hip muscle, the upsurge in heat and humidity (which sucks all vitality out of me), and eating just waaaay too much this weekend, I only have 1 pound to show for the work, instead of more. Oh well, at least I’m going down and working at it!!
In other news, my trainer was “fired” from the gym. She is opening her own place, also in my neighborhood. That sucks, since I have 3 more sessions to use up and I don’t want to just switch to a new trainer for only a short while. I may stick with her, and train at her place, soon to be opened in 1-2 months, and pay less than at 24 hour fitness.
I haven’t switched yet, so my normal training day, which is tomorrow, is now empty. I never make it into the gym when there’s a manager to facilitate this, as I don’t show up until 7:30 or later any evening! I think tomorrow, I may try out some of the gym’s other class options, particularly a class that I haven’t taken since February…Yoga!
Last time I took that I hurt so bad for 3 days that I couldn’t laugh or sneeze without intense pain. That’s what I got for having avoided any core muscle work before having my ass handed to me after an hour long extremely grueling experience that I swore off until I was in a lot better physical shape. If you have never taken yoga, let me tell you – it is HARD! Anyway, with all the strength training I’ve been doing, including abs/core, I think I may have a chance to make it through an hour without leaving, or sitting out the last 10 minutes (like last time!!). I may try and run tomorrow for a half hour or so, THEN go to yoga. Depends on how nastily muggy and humid it is.
So, that’s the news, the plan, and my current status. Be well… dietmaven out.
