I no longer fear the machines.

Today I went to the gym.  It’s Thursday, so I went.  I decided that I wasn’t going to fear the weight machines anymore.  Thank you Seaswell.  These machines aren’t the big clunky ones in the same area as the free weights.  They are a little more separated from the rest of the gym.  When I toured, one other person was there using them.  Today It was me and one other person.  I believe it was the same older man who was there when I toured the facility. 

 I did get a little bit of everything in.   Arms, back and legs.  I always knew that my legs are waaaay stronger than my arms.  I did two sets of 10-12 reps on each machine.  Usually 12 reps on my legs and 10 on my arms, LOL!  I opted out of the ab machine altogether, because well, I just don’t like it.  Besides, I can do crunches in the comfort of my own home. 

I will have my fitness class Tuesday afternoons and if the weather is decent, I’ll go to the gym on Thursday, alternating between the machines and cardio (Elliptical, stairclimber or treadmill).  If it’s horrible, I stay home and do a video.  I’m still committing to twice a week.

    I really need to join a gym again. I tell myself I can do most of it at home, but it is not as motivating.

    I know. I have videos at home too that I can do if the weather is too icy to go out. It just isn’t the same though. ~Accountable

    Awesome! I do love exercise machines. 🙂 I just wish I could motivate myself to go to a gym. It will be interesting to see what comes of the January Yoga challenge! 😀

    That will be interesting. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep it up like NaBloPoMo. We’ll see! ~Accountable
