09-10-2019 The Gym

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Went to the gym yesterday. It has been about 3 months since I have been to the gym. I finally have a friend who can go with me. The only problem is she can only go 2 days a week. I did 72 minutes of Fitness between the walk at work and the exercise at the gym. I really need to try and get to the gym more often. I am not sure what I am going to do. I want to get out there and work out. I am just afraid of going alone. I guess I am going to have to buckle down and go alone. I tried the new hydromassage bed at the gym yesterday and that was absolute heaven. After working out for almost an hour it was really good to have a massage. I really needed it and I am not as sore today as I normally would be. I think I am going to hit the gym again soon. I know since I am not use to being at the gym I need to start slow again. So for today I am just going to be doing my walking, but stepping it up a notch. I know I can go 20 minutes on the treadmill so unless I get a customer there should be no reason I cannot walk 20 minutes here in the office. I usually do laps because my office is not that big and it helps me get my steps in for the day. Going to the gym yesterday also helped me get all my water in for the day. I have a hard time getting in my 64 ounces a day. I usually do about 40 or a little more. Yesterday I got it all in. I am glad for that too. It really helps when I get all my water in. I think I am going to go back to the gym on Friday with my friend. For now 2 days a week is going to have to work. I will up it to 3 days a week in a couple weeks. I definitely do not want to over do it. When I don't go to the gym I will work on getting my steps in every day and doing workouts through walking. My right shoulder is a little sore but then I have always had problems with that shoulder. I just cannot go to Physical Therapy because I don't have the money for that nor the time. So I deal with it. It will eventually sort itself out or it will get so painful I have to go to the doctor for it. I am really thinking it will be the later but who knows working it might actually help.

This is my new haircut and my affirmation for the week. Will be getting a new affirmation every week.

    Thanks for walking in a gym. Due to Convid-19 I have been medical advised not to go to the gym as I am at risk

    emoticon Sounds like you're really doing great! Sometimes I sell myself on going to the gym if I tell myself I get to get a hydromassage after!

    You might see if there are any shoulder therapy videos on YouTube? Might be worth a look!

    Good Luck! You got this!
