Slacker

I had yesterday off, and felt it was the perfect opportunity to hit the gym.

The massive company who owns the casino I work at has recently opened a health and wellness center for its employees. This includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, staffed by highly trained fitness experts. And all of this is free.

FREE.

Did I mention it's located directly on my route to and from work?

So no more excuses, I need to get in shape and lose weight.

Yesterday was my cardio day, and I planned on doing my usual hour on the elliptical machine.

I did exactly 1 minute, 30 seconds, got off the machine, went home and took a nap.

I felt singularly UNmotivated. Not only did I not exercise yesterday, I also ate a pint of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

Can you say I suck?

Anyway, I felt just as crappy this morning, but had an appointment with my trainer to go over my strength training, and luckily once we got started I felt jazzed up again.

I also eschewed my usual one cup of coffee, and I think that's why I feel pretty darn good right now. Caffeine has wacky effects on me, and it's definitely better when I avoid it like the plague.

That's all for now, feel free to comment...since I'm a comment WHORE, dammit!!!

Speaking of slacking...

Go ahead and comment, People, even if you just say, "You suck!", or even, "WOW, you suck!"

That's better than silence.

omg? a minute and a half? Wow! Impressive. I'd be the sort to drive into the parking garage of the gym and leave if I didn't get a choice enough parking space. Priorities!

All the times u pushed my lazy butt to hit the gym after work!!! But hey, the trainers are cute!

Phlegm, you're right, priorities, priorities!
My priority right now should be losing weight, so I HAVE to hit the gym hard. Sigh. I hate it so much.
4chun Cookie...it's not like YOU need to hit the gym! ;)
My trainer is NOT cute, but he's very nice AND knowledgable, that's all that matters to me. Otherwise, I might get distracted...

At least twice a week I tell myself I need to get my ass in gear and try to get myself healthy/fit/etc. For some reason it hasn't happened yet. I don't drink coffee so I can't use your excuse. I think I'm the one who sucks...

Christina said...

Chuck, but you're always on the road, too.
That can't be conducive to setting up any kind of workout routine, either!

Off your ass, beautiful! Get in shape for us pervs out there. :)

Perhaps you just need to find a workout that's more fun than the - yawn - elliptical machine... I can only recommend kickboxing (I started back up last night and am gloriously sore all over).
Plus, ice cream is made from milk, which is like, totally healthy and stuff? So, like, it's totally cool to eat it.

Christina said...

That's right, Dick!
Gotta please the pervs...THAT should be my priority!

Sonja...I love the way you think!
Plus I told my trainer about my cardio boredom issue, and we've scheduled an eval next Monday, where he promises to show me a super calorie burning workout...yay!
I'm not much for the group classes, too competitive.
