Here we are mid Week 16...I think...It is really getting a bit challenging to keep up with the weeks. I hope you all have made it over the Hump on Hump Day. I am at work...Surprise!!
I am hoping not to be here till all hours...here's to HOPE!!!! So last night...I changed up my workout a little. I started with the rowing machine...interesting...a little difficult...but I liked it. I did about 10 minutes of rowing and then on to the bike for another hour. It was a good workout...the rowing machine used an entirely different set of muscles and some of mine are not all that thrilled today!! LOL! It does not take much to remind me that my body is middle-aged! I am telling you, sometimes my brain forgets. I decide to try something new and I sashay right over to the new machine...rowing, elliptical...whatever...I hop on and WHAM....my body says...Not so fast Fluffy!!!
My BRAIN says...this is easy...you got this...but the ole body begs to differ. Now here is the kicker for me...sometimes as I am trying to master one of the new machines (particularly the Evil Elliptical) and invariably someone will step up right next to me...someone typically much older than I am and just start motoring!!! Some of them are even reading, chatting with their neighbor (not me)...NOT breathing hard while I am completely sucking wind and sweating like I am in the Sahara!!! Now I try not to compare myself with others...but I must admit that when I am working out next to a 75 year old who is smoking me on whatever apparatus I am on...well...let's just say it is a bit damaging to my ego!!! HA!
But I figure they typically are not carrying around another person in the form of Fluff!!!! So...I just keep going for as long as I can stand it and sometimes a little beyond. Not too beyond though...my biggest fear is that I will pass out and one of those 75 year old butt kickers will have to save my life...talk about an ego buster!!!
So...I am off to the gym...I MUST...I MUST....I MUST DECREASE MY FLUFF!!!!
Thank you to those of you who sent in some suggestions for Mini-Goals and Workouts for the Fluffy Girl....Keep em coming....Remember, we are brainstorming!!!
See you tomorrow!!!
