    Default Funny Gym Story

    So last week I meet with a new trainer to help me get back in the exercise mode, and to help me work around my foot injury.

    She started testing my posture and how to use the weight resistance machines. I was doing pretty impressive.

    When we started doing arm curl reps, she puts the weight at about 20lbs. She asked me if it was too light. I was wanted to lie say not at all. She starts increasing at 5lbs until she gets to forty. Then she asks how much can you curl. I wanted say I donít know? But my big lying mouth opens up and tells her I was doing 75lbs just a few months ago. Oh so she puts it at 60lbs. After about two curls, I am oh no this burns! She starts bringing down until I was able to do 15 curls at about 30lbs. I did it, and it was agony after 5 curls.

    It just cracks me up!

    My body just has a tendency to revert back to couch potato status so easily.

    Oh well, the most important is to try!! The body is resilient, it will come back! You can do it!

    Right now I'm in couch potato mode for at least two more weeks.
    The surgeon said I should be able to resume my walking little by little next week so I will try that early in the morning or late at night when the temperatures are cooler. But I can't work out til the end of September...I hope I won't loose too much muscle mass during that time...

    Yes, it does come back quickly.

    You're inspiring me, Shirl -- to get back to weights. I've been traveling so much this spring/summer that, although I have kept up my yoga and aquarobics, my weight lifting has suffered.

    I love the excitement of travel. But I also love the routine of regular, normal life. And in a few weeks I can have it!

    Traveling is fun! I want to get on a cruise ship and go around the world someday!

    My trainer has given me “homework” and recommended resistance bands if I don’t want to invest in weights. If you have a Big5 Sporting Goods in your area, I just saw the have resistance bands on sale. I still haven’t bought them, but I did buy one of those wood stick rollers for sore muscles.

    Sending you immense love and energy for a speedy and healthy recovery!

    I always forget that Meditation is a form of underestimated exercise ;-)

    Christy! You are an inspiration! Your body transformation is proof we can and will reclaim our bodies. Everything aligned with you and I hope to find that combination of self willed and determination and self love that will get me there!
