Friday Findings::: "Gymming it!!"


In late January I went to the gym one day. Knowing I hadn't been there in quite some time I went ahead and asked the girl when was the last time I'd gone in for a workout. She told me it was in mid-October. Embarrassing. It was then and there that I decided that I either needed to unsubscribe or actually get serious about working out. At about the same time I'd been having some health issues and was starting to get "colds" every two or three weeks, constantly in and out of the ears, nose, and throat specialist to keep checking for a surgery I may eventually need. My sister had also started working as an HerbalLife sales rep and she was going on and ON about my terrible eating habits. I will admit, they were awful. So considering everything I decided to get a little more serious about it, and committed to going three times a week. The most surprising thing about it was that I then actually started to go three times a week! LOL. I told myself that if I could make it for the first 3 weeks the it would become a habit and I would like to go. Now, three months into it, a couple visits to the sporting goods store, having better eating habits, and losing 6 lbs, I can admit to actually LIKING the gym. Something about feeling your cells dying one-by-one is slightly addicting, and definitely great stress release. I am now attending spinning and pilates classes whenever I can, and doing cardio workouts on days when the schedules don't allow for me to go to a class.

I do want to say one more thing: I haven't been sick since January. Not once!

I also recently found out that some of the workouts I was doing were contracting each other and not necessarily giving me the best results. In honor of this, I decided I should look for other people doing workouts all wrong...
and this is what I found!

Happy Friday!! (Burn off some steam!)
