First Time Gym Rat
And yes, this is me in a fitness center! Did you know Snap Fitness gives new people a free week trial? I thought what the heck, if my 70yr old mother can do it so can I. That and in the past two weeks I gained FOUR pounds! Enough! No excuses.
Today was my first day. I never did an eliptical before, it is fun but not easy. I read somewhere that they aren't that good of a workout. Yah, maybe if one puts it on the easiest and only does it for an hour after two years of doing it but I think it is! I lasted 6 minutes (my goal!) at 22 and 24. I did the bike in the weight loss mode for 10 minutes. I did crunches on the ball, the hip extension thing that does inner and outer thighs and the arm extension thing. I wrote it all down, the degree, how much time, weight. Try and keep track of it all. I didn't want to overdo it either. But I feel it, I do.
