Gym Blog | Day 5

So, it’s 100 degrees outside today. Again. Ew.

Still riding off of my high from yesterday’s workout, I walked my ass to the gym today, just after lunch, in the 100 degree heat, and was so determined to do just as well as I did yesterday.

Well… I kind of did as well as I did yesterday.


Once again, I was the only person in the gym when I got there. No manager, no trainer, no one. I decided to hop on the treadmill first, and did 10 minutes at 2.5 mph on that, just to get my blood pumping. Then, I moved to 10 minutes on the elliptical, followed by 60 seconds on Jacob’s Ladder, which I am pretty damn proud of.

It took be a hot minute to recover. Jacob’s Ladder is no joke. You think, “Oh, it’s literally just climbing a ladder, how hard can that be?” But it is! It’s so hard!

After I caught my breath, I did 15 minutes on the row machine, and one full super rep with the 5-pound weights.

Not quite as much as yesterday, but I was drenched in sweat, and starting to feel pretty tired by this point. It doesn’t help that I was supposed to start my period sometime last week, and haven’t yet (no, I’m not pregnant, I’ve always had irregular periods, especially when changing my eating/exercising routine, and it’s freaking annoying), so I have been feeling kind of weak and blah this week.

I know, this doesn’t sound like much to anyone who visits the gym even somewhat regularly, but it’s a big deal for me. I’m hoping to be able to afford a personal training session sometime soon, so I can hopefully learn some new stuff to help me target certain areas better. I have no idea what to do about my gut. I feel like I’m working out everything around it, but not actually doing anything with my core.

The gym is closed tomorrow for Memorial Day, so I have to decide whether I want to take the day off, or find something to do from home. I sure as hell am not going outside. I try to avoid 100 degree heat like the plague, if possible.

Thanks for reading!
