Gym Blog | Day 16

My body still hates me after my personal training session on Wednesday. I went into the gym this morning, because I decided to do a little art project, and decorate the big chalkboard wall. I have zero artistic ability, and it took me two hours to finish, but I am pretty happy with it!

Don’t mind the horrible quality of the picture, there are about 5 cracks in the glass over my phone’s camera lens, so both my front and back cameras don’t work now. I promise, it looks way better in person. Well, kind of.  Chalk is a hard medium, okay?!

Ta da!

Yeah, that took me a whopping TWO hours to finish. I kept erasing, rewriting, redrawing, etc. But, I’m happy with it.

I debated staying for a workout, but since I had already been there for two hours, and I was starving, I decided to go home and refuel. I got some work done around the house, and clocked in a few hours for my job, and just relaxed for a while.

After kiddo went to bed, I walked over to the gym, determined to get at least a mini workout in, since my body still hurts, especially my legs. It was dude central. A bunch of dudes, making dude noises, doing dude things. Always makes me feel weird.

I did 20 minutes on the treadmill (Coyote Ugly was on TV, so that gave me a little push to stay on longer), just to do something with my legs. After, I did some stuff with the weights. Supersets, then… whatever it’s called when I put my knee and hand on a bench and lift with my opposite. Seriously, I forget what it’s called but I really like those.

I wanted to do more, but there were too many guys around, and it was making me anxious, so I moved onto some standing side bends with the kettlebells, and some stretches.

That’s it. It wasn’t a bad workout, just a light one. My legs are still killing me, and I am really hoping they feel better soon, because I felt totally useless, haha.

Anyway, that’s it! Thanks for reading, friends. Feel free to check out all of my previous #gymblogs!

    1. To be fair, it’s not just men that make me uncomfortable. People in general make me feel uncomfortable. It’s kind of like I feel like everyone is watching me, and I am afraid of doing something incorrectly. But there were a lot of big, muscular guys at the gym, all lifting weights, and it just freaked me out a little bit.

      1. You’re totally right😀 at times I just decide to ignore everyone although that’s hard. And then just do my own thing. My husband assured me that almost everyone there feels same way but decide to their just own thing and leave. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one feeling same way.
