Well my workout today went much better than Monday so I’m happy. On Wed I run for 30 mins and then do ab machines. It just felt good to stretch and move my body. I do usually have to work a little harder to make myself get up and go to the gym on Wednesdays though. Since it’s mostly running and we have a treadmill at the house there is the allure of staying in bed with the promise to run here. The problem with that promise is that I always break it. I always get tied up with the kiddos or cleaning or whatever other excuse I can come up with. So I have stopped kidding myself with that excuse and just get up and go.
While running at the gym they have a ton of TVs in front of the treadmills and other aerobic machines. I got sucked into Tori and Dean on Oxygen. It’s a little scary that I enjoyed watching the show and feel my brain has turned that much more into mush. However, btw the show and my music I felt really upbeat and didn’t watch my time on the treadmill like I normally do. I’m one of those people who prefer to run outside hands down to running on a treadmill. However, I don’t do the cold weather so I’m in the gym until the spring and summer time. I like running outside because it rarely get’s boring. You see all kinds of things, you breathe in fresh air and listen to the sounds of the world. I guess that’s why the gym has tons of TVs so you can yourself that way. I usually try to ignore them because I always get stuck in front of the TV that has country music or Denise Austin. Now I love country music, I was raised in the south afterall. But I do not find it very motivating to run too. Hearing a sad melody about how somebody done somebody wrong never get’s me pumping. On the other hand on the days I’m stuck in front of Denise I tend to get queasy. She’s just way to perky for me. I know I’m offending some of you with that critique but my God she’s scary happy.
So that was my morning. On another exciting note my weight is back down. I have really watched what I ate for the past couple of days and tried to up my water intake – so sweet! So which do you prefer – running inside on the treadmill or grooving outside in the world?
