Six days in a row

To say I jumped back into my gym routine is an understatement.

I’m proud of myself for going six days in a row! I have gone at all different times throughout the week and I have to say early morning and mid afternoon are my favorite.

I’ve done both cardio – running and the elliptical – and various free weights and machine exercises … I feel incredible. With that said, my body is sore, but hey that only reminds me of what I worked out.

Some of the exercises I used to do with mom at our gym in Fort Myers are slowly coming back. I hope more does. Mom always came up with some good sets that pushed us to our limits.

I guess I forgot how nice it was to do more than just cardio. I’ve noticed with lifting weights my cardio has increased.

My stamina is finally improving on the elliptical. Yesterday I reached a new level, surpassed my other workouts on the elliptical, which made me feel incredible. Yep, I’m always setting new goals for myself! 

Today I was at the gym all by myself. It was really nice, I had every piece of workout equipment to myself. I did my cardio and then used some new equipment, which I will have to use again when I workout my back next time.

Now I know when Jason is at work on the weekends I should head to the gym. I must be the only crazy one who works out on Saturday and Sunday.

The gym has definitely helped me this week. I’m really glad it’s a part of my life again. It’s an outlet I really needed, one I really enjoy.

Although I miss meeting mom at the gym in the wee hours of the morning, I’m glad I’m doing it on my own!
