Relationship update

I am happy to report that after several weeks, "Gym" and my relationship is still going strong. We are actually seeing each other six days a week now! I know.....CRAZY huh? I find that I really love the smell of "gym" and when I walk in the front doors and that smell hits me I get an adrenaline rush. The actual time spent with "gym" is not my favorite, but I love how good I feel when I leave. There is nothing like having sore muscles and knowing that it is because I worked my tail off! So to mix things up a bit I decided to try a water aerobics class...I wanted to do some kind of class and I have done the spin class and those dang bikes bruised my tailbone, so that was out! I had looked in the windows of the Yoga class and decided that I STILL hated Yoga, so that left water aerobics. My hubby kinda snickered at me when I told him "Isn't that were all the older, heavier women are?" I told him that that was the reason that I wanted to do it, I didn't want to be in a class where everyone ALREADY looked like models, that would make me feel so self conscience (especially in a bathing suit). So I gave it a try last week and I REALLY liked it! I got a great workout and didn't sweat or stink! Yes, I have to be in a bathing suit, but again, I already described some of the class members, so that isn't too bad either. I even tricked my friend into coming with me, so now I have a buddy! So as of now, I am going to water aerobics on Mon, Wed and Fridays. On the other days I do my 2 mile run and weight routine. So far I really haven't seen any results, but then it has only been a few weeks... I will keep my fingers crossed that something good will come of this.... sigh
So for now, I will just appreciate the fact that "gym" and I are on speaking terms!

HAVEN'T SEEN ANY RESULTS-ARE YOU INSANE? My darling daughter how do you expect to see any results when you are as thin as a rail and firm as the mountains around us. I don't even get this, what is this world coming to when my perfectly beautiful, thin, fit as a fiddle daughter is trying to work herself out into oblivion. I tell you it is enough to make me have to lie down. Chris I would tell you to talk some sense into her but that would be the pot calling the kettle black.

I too have a secret love affair with water aerobics! There is a class at the pleasant grove pool in the summer time that I went to nearly all summer! I love that you don't get all sweaty and stinky, and you can work yourself harder by just pushing the water harder. It's pretty cool.. And it does make you feel pretty good that you are the best looking girl in a bathing suit in the pool ;)

I love working out too! :) But I'm glad my gym is just in my basement. I hate driving to it.

I used to do water Aerobics, and I agree....its nice to get out wet with water instead of wet with sweat! :)

Amberly said...

I am so proud of you! Gym is one of my best friends. Sean always jokes that I'm having an affair with gym. I'm glad your relationship is getting better. Keep on spinning girl! You will eventually develop a callice(sp) on that booty of yours!

For the record, I never said "heavier" or "older" when referring to my fellow GYM citizens and loyalists. Whether GYM rat or Water rat, we all go for similar purposes.

Jenny, I am astonished with this high you receive when taking in the odor of GYM. Isn't that the same sinus-cleansing aroma of my GYM clothes, only in concentrate form. I'm jealous - you run to inhale malodorous GYM yet run away from your's truly - adorned in the same musty scent of GYM.

To my DH... there is a HUGE difference between the gym's aroma and your excercise clothing.... your clothes could would be Oscar the Grouches favorite things ever! The gym smells similar to a bike store (ummmmm)...your clothes rotten smelly armpits! It is a good thing that the area directly above the said armpits is totally great smelling (after a shower of course) and VERY desirable!

Wow good for you! Cause I know that I will never be that dedicated to the gym.
