I have been himhawing about giving up my gym membership at 24hour fitness. Now, don't get me wrong, I love working out! I love the recovery period after a good hard workout. I mean really! It is almost as good as sex, and I guess that is because those endorphines are moving and it is such a good stress realease. Yes I do have a treadmill at home, and will continue to use that as well in the evenings, but I really do not have what I need to do the strength training I want to do. And.. I need it! I have some areas that need some toning, and once I do that I know that my body will begin to look it's best.
So, I have decided to ... begin working out at 4am on the days I teach (Monday through Thursday) , then a wee bit later on the days I am off (Friday and Saturday). Sundays, will be either after church or just at home, depending on what is going on, how the kids are behaving and such. I am glad to be back at that place where I want to jump back into both food and exercise with both feet. My computer time really is going to be limited, but it is for the best! If I have a few days where I dont' have an entry, don't get discouraged. I will catch up everything on the weekend, or when I get the first chance. I totally keep track of everything in writing in my paper journal so it isnt' like I wont have it to share. ~Smile~
Anyway, just wanted to share that and to document what I am going to do. I will only be maybe at the gym for like 45 minutes tops at a time ( Mon ~ thurs) and most of it will be strength training. Friday and Saturday I can do most of my cardio AND strength training at the gym, freeing up a little bit of time in the evening. I am at least giving this 100 percent for the rest of this month. That is 20 days! If all is going well I will continue the same scedule for February.
