Alfred, Kayla, and I had a good workout at the gym last night. I am slowly building up my stamina on the elliptical. Whereas previously I could only stay on it 6-8 minutes, last night I stayed on it for 15 minutes with 2,000 strides. Talk about a workout! Whew - you can feel the burn! Afterwards I did walked on the treadmill and then we hit the weight machines.
I am beginning to love going to the gym! I feel so good after working out. At first I was kinda shy about working out in front of other people, but now I just get in there and get to work. I realized that everyone has to start somewhere and people aren't paying as much attention to you as you may think they are. Also, I am stronger than I give myself credit for!
We are planning to work out on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays (when Alfred and Kendall are not gone to scuba class) we'll use the pool and hot tub to soothe sore muscles. We are also working on eliminating the junk from our diet and replacing those things with healthier options. It is absolutely a lifestyle change for me.
This morning I have been busy tackling my homemaking and there is more yet to do. But I love it and wouldn't change it for the world! I tidied and rearranged the pantry, have a load of laundry drying and one in the washer waiting to be dried, and washed dishes. Yet to be done is: vacuum carpets, mop living room and kitchen, tidy and disinfect bathroom, rearrange the bathroom closet, tidy my desk and do a little yardwork.
This afternoon I'm to take Kendall to the dentist and then we'll visit Mama for a bit before coming home to prepare dinner and watch Biggest Loser tonight.
What are your plans for the day?
