Yes, I practice those silly poses in the Group X room. I get a lot of strange looks from the good citizens of 24 Hour Fitness.
In two weeks my diet is going to change and I will be eating more protein and fewer carbs. (Boo hoo!) Also, everyone around me will be getting paler with the autumn winds; I will be going to the tanning salon twice a week to get a base tan. (I’ll explain the whole tanning thing in another post. This sport has some oddities and tanning is one of them.)
I’m hoping to develop a stronger upper body, since I’m a bit lopsided at the moment. (All those years of marathon running made my legs very muscular, but I never bothered with my arms, so now I’m playing catch up.)
It’s good the kids are in school now because I will have to start going to the gym twice a day again, as my cardio will probably increase.
But I’m having a blast! I feel myself getting stronger and guess what? My husband went to the gym with me yesterday – the first time in half a decade! After we worked out (yesterday was arms day) we took the kids swimming at the gym pool for an hour.
I also managed to take a bunch of pictures of things were are going to sell on Craig’s List to pay for all my competition costs. So life is plugging along.
Hope you are having a great weekend too!
