This is my first post of what I hope are many. BCC and I joined a gym. This was the second day that we went. Day one I only managed to do a tot
al of 7 minutes of cardio, one ab machine, and one arm machine. I was disappointed, but it was a start. Day two well, I was really upset. I did 15 minutes of cardio, then I could not walk without my legs shaking. I felt like my thighs were on fire. BCC finished his ab work and we both went back to the locker rooms and got ready to leave.
I came out and sat at a table and started to cry, I was frustrated. I want this so badly. I want to get healthy and feel good. I also want to lose weight and look and feel better for my son’s wedding. I felt like a failure. I do not know what I was expecting. But I know it wasn’t 15 minutes of cardio, and it was not very fast. I wanted it all to happen so much faster. I wanted to be able to do the 30 minutes of cardio, AND all the weights the trainer suggested. But I couldn’t.
I suppose I could look at it differently, I did double my cardio time. We talked ourselves out of NOT going because it was very cold out side. I was even comfortable on the treadmill, which I did not think I would be.
So I suppose it is a matter of perspective,
More tomorrow when I will post some of my goals both short term and long term.
