Week 2, ready, set, go! I am going to take advantage of every opportunity offered to me these 12 weeks, because we all need those support systems. I am going to listen and take away positive things from each offering, from every person who is willing to help me succeed and from every person who has gone before me, I hope to build on their successes.
With that said, time to head out to the Y!
I walked to the Y this morning. It was nice out and round trip gives me 2.5 miles, bonus! I got there early, so I went up and used the Rower (10) for a bit, came down and did The E for 15 (6), Arm Rower (4) for 10 and 10 on the Treadmill (3+3), I increased the incline a little so it was more of a trek then a walk, so a good 40 minute work out. I was hoping Michelle would introduce us to something new and as usual she came through! We got to go through some of the Nautilus weight machines. Awesome! I thought I was doing well, until I got on the one lifting my arms up above my head, I am pretty sure I need to stick to 2 sets of 5 on that baby! All in all a good day, a solid hour workout, not even counting my walk down & back.
As I was leaving a wall of black was coming up behind me. [photo shows the rain storm coming] Those last 3 blocks were really, really wet! But I made it and a hot shower felt even better!
Wow did that week fly by.
I made it to the Y 4 times, which was great and increased a little each day. I did not make it to any classes, but my schedule makes it very convenient to go right from work. I felt like I should have lost weight because I was hungry more then usual and ate lots of grapes in the car, but noooo, not a pound.
I missed the call with Joleene, but wrote down the quote, "change doesn't happen unless we decide to do something different." It really hits home, and I am so ready to do things differently.
I'm looking forward to the healthy cooking classes. This is such a wonderful opportunity and I will make the most of it. Thank you BetterU.
