First time doing gravity at my gym yesterday in a while, and I am PAYING for it this morning! It hurts, but it is a good pain! It means I accomplished something, I pushed myself hard enough to get results. I just wish I had never stopped a few months ago, cause I lost so much. I will get back there though, and be stronger and better!
In the gravity class at my gym yesterday I used the TRX straps to do a general overall body workout targeting many different areas. If you haven’t ever seen or used TRX equipment here is the website:
Every time I do these classes I almost always spend the next couple of days feeling the after effects. I love working my hamstrings on the TRX straps the most. I always have trouble really isolating the muscles on the gym’s machines. However, using the straps, I always end slapping the floor with fatigue. Yes, when I get to my limit I have to close my eyes, grunt, breathe, and puusshhhhhh (and look like a little crazy- but good crazy…I think…lol). I kind of want the straps for Christmas (especially the pink set!).
Bah time to do some cleaning, then hit up the gym for another workout! Plan is to do more core and lower back work, and also hit up one of my favorite classes that I just have so much fun in (posted about earlier) Body Jam with Mel!
(don’t mind the stuffing in hair picture, just thought it was rather funny this morning :-p)
So as you have probably heard me say, I am in a lot of debt. Partly because of my inhibitions in spending I have had during probable manic episodes, and partly due to bad decision making (don’t feel comfortable blaming it all on my mental illness). How much of each I am unsure of :-p . However, I have been working 60+ hours a week (at three jobs now!) to try and slowly claw my way out of this hole. Therefore I hadn’t worked out in over 2 months, losing all the hard earned progress that I had made since December . However, I am back at it and loving the awfully sore feeling that makes me not want to move right now.
I got a job at my gym (Vent Fitness, Clifton Park)! I love it there too. What is better than to work with the friendly and kind staff I have gotten to know over the past few months! Plus a free gym membership doesn’t hurt either 😉 . It also gives me more opportunities to work out before and after work. So I finally got to go Monday night, and yeah… I got my butt kicked…. I was shaking and sweating, and overall just dying. I will get back to where I was though, and more! I missed it so much, and the good feelings that came with it too.
I also need to make the time to eat healthier. With all the running around I have given in to the temptations of domino’s, pizza hut, and all kinds of fast food restaurants. Blegh! No more! I need to drop this extra weight I have gained and take care of myself better. More to come soon. I am going to get my organization skills working and figure this all out!
