back to the gym

So I finally got off my butt and went to the gym this morning. Not the little neighborhood gym, Planet Fitness, actually. I needed to see other people working out, instead of my doggy barking at me to feed her breakfast. She's not very motivating, lol.

I had a Slim Fast before I left, and I think I'm gonna have a couple bites of ham for protein to take advantage of my metabolism.

Also, I think I need to change things up at the gym. Recently (when I have gone) I've done the bike for 25min to warm up my legs, then gone to the elliptical or running. Thing is, the bike doesn't really get my heart rate too high. 140-145 at most. But on the elliptical, I'm goin 7mph in the first few minutes. Sooooooo I think I'm gonna to that first, THEN the bike, so my heart rate is still up, so I can burn away my booty faster.

Well now I have to walk the dog and shower before work. It's an icky 8:30-4 day today...tomorrow I can slack a little more since I don't go in until 10.

Reno, you back with me?

I am, dollface. I'm super tired right now. I think I'll have a quick walk with the dog and I'm off to work. Got my dance classes today, so I don't feel so bad. :D

Set a pretty tough resistance on the bike, purse your lips and just start pedaling as hard as you can. You'll feel your heart rate go up...

It's not exactly like I'm slacking on the bike. I didn't lose 20lbs in three months by taking a nice ride through the park. Thanks tho.

damn! how'd you know it was me...

must have been something about that old, 'we must resist our loins' shindig that went down a long time ago.

hahaha!

Seriously though, I'm proud of you for sticking with your plan. Go team skinny-shock!

Well, my average body weight really should be 150 (that's what it was in high school). But I have gained boobs since then, so I could stand to get back down there. Pretty much it's for me that I can eat not terribly, but not great and still stay at that weight. It's like a rut weight. But it's also a healthy weight. I don't know if I'm making any sense, but yeah.
