So, today after church I came home and changed into my workout gear. My 4 year old got really excited because he loves going to play at the kiddy area. Which is great for me because then I dont feel so guilty dropping them off for some me time.
I did 30 minutes on the elliptical starting off at 8 incline and 3 resistance. I did the last 5 minutes of the 30 at a 10 incline and 5 resistance. It felt soooo good!! I was sweating sooo bad!!! I could just feel and see the sweat dripping off of me. I looked like a crazy lady with my hair all wet. I was so happy with myself=)
I also did 15 minutes on the treadmill. I walked at a 3.5 pace. It was quick enough to get my heart pumping, but I am not confident enough to jog in front of everyone yet. I did run for about 2 minutes, but I think my 30 minute elliptical had me pretty wiped out.
Before the gym I wanted to eat something light because it was already 11:30. I headed out with the boys to Chick-fil-a and then I realized that they are closed on Sundays. My son wanted to play on the playground at McDonalds but I really didn't want to eat crap. Crazy huh? When you start doing something good for your body, you don't crave the greasy food!! I took him there and only nibbled on a french fry or two. I didn't enjoy it at all.
I am a little nervous about swimming at the gym. They have an indoor olympic size pool with lanes roped off for swimmers. I haven't worn a bathing suit in a loooong time. Even when I was super skinny, I always wore shorts to cover up some scars on my upper legs. I noticed that there were other swimmers who were bigger than me just walking around in their suits. They looked so confidant. We will see.
A question: Is swimming something I could do to see results on the scale? I heard it is the best workout. What do you guys think?
Confession: I went and got a coconut snowcone after my workout. It was so nice on a hot summer day!
Cheer: I worked my butt off today and didn't go crazy on food!! I can't wait to go back tomorrow!!
