It is a proven fact that if you drink a lot of coffee, you will look like this…
I do not recommend cutting back though.
It is also believed that men really do have PMS, but a walk here pretty much cures it. Well, that and I’m sure a beer wouldn’t hurt.
I swear we could go down Scenic Drive in Carmel every single day and I would never get sick of it. Em, we are going to run this again one day! Deal?
A few things I’ve been up to this week…Yesterday I went to PT (I go twice a week) and asked if we could work on my grandma gait. It doesn’t hurt to walk, so I’m thinking it’s a muscle imbalance. Since I have the best PT ninja ever, he enthusiastically agreed and came up with a game plan.
We did some gentle strength, balance & joint mobility work and at the end of the session, I was walking so much better. My quads were shaking so I’ll call it a success! Not 100%, I wouldn’t expect that but we are definitely headed in the right direction. I couldn’t ask for more!
After I hit up the gym to ride the bike before meeting up with Heather. Mike downloaded an indoor cycling podcast I listened to on my phone which was very helpful for this newbie. I am such a fitness gear/apps/gadgets nerd! #shameless
Heather arrived as I was stretching & foam rolling so we did some ab work while we were there.
After we headed to the weight room for a bit. The weight room intimidates me, but I love going with a buddy. BTW, Heather are not allowed to move. Just sayin’
Check out her gun show!!
Speaking of gear, workout tights with a cell phone pocket is pure genius!! I think she said they are from LUCY.
After, we foam rolled. I kept eyeing what we called the porcupine roller. He stared at me with an evil glare, daring me to a torture session. Turns out it wasn’t too shabby. It actually felt good.
Oh and I figured out a big reason I do not like to cook…
Well with the exception of my special talent of burning water.
A few recommendations:
- Alabama friends, go enter to win an entry into 2 races here!
- Watch Despicable Me 1 & 2 now.
- Make this copy cat Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli soup. Mike helped me so it was edible.
- If you make that soup, leave out or reduce the marjoram unless you want to know what a hippie might taste like.
- If you find changing simple habits difficult, go read this post.
- And this….
Does anything at the gym intimidate you?
Any random things you recommend?
Do you prefer to workout alone or with a buddy?
