I'm Insane!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been up since 6:30am! And I'm getting ready to leave for the gym! This is the first day that I go that I do not have to attend an education class, so I have no requirement to go, but here I am leaving the house to go and exercise at 8:30am!

I weighed myself this morning and I've lost the 10 pounds that I gained back after my insurance company yanked me from physio back in September. So that's motivation enough to keep going.

What's more, I am absolutely terrified of water that is deeper than my knees...and even that gets my gut churning! This Thursday I'm going to buy a bathing suit so I can do Aquasizes twice weekly!

Insane, I tell you! Totally insane!

Good for you! I like my exercise classes a little later in the day.

I assume your pool in Winnipeg is indoors. The pools around where I live are all outside and this is Northern CA. The high today will be 10 C (50 F). But, it is sunny, so I will put on my swim shirt and be at my aquafit class at 11 am today.

Congrats on the 10 lbs! Is the next goal a stone?

Well I went!

I did 15 minutes of stretching, followed by 45 minutes on the treadmill (cardio) and 15 minutes on the arm bike (cardio), followed by 1/2 hour of resistance training on the machines, and then another 15 minutes of stretching.

I'm wiped! But I feel good that I went.

I just sat down with my calendar and the aqua class schedule and mapped out my Tuesday and Sunday routine.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday I do what I did today.

Every other Tuesday and every Sunday I do stretches and cardio consisting of treadmill, arm bike and aqua class.

I do the arm bike because I find that I have no endurance in my arms and that I get tired just washing my hair or cutting up an onion, so the arm bike is supposed to help with that.

It's all about mindset.

I'm striving to build my strength and stamina so that I can do a back to work program and get back to my job.

But a huge motivating factor is the weight loss! Nothing more motivating than seeing the numbers on a scale getting smaller!
