I slept so much yesterday, that I cannot wake up still! I was asleep by 10 p.m. and I woke up at 7 am, and I am still in that sleepy mood!
I ate well yesterday, according to the plan, only I forgot to take apples to work, so I did not have my apple with lunch. Also walked 2 km to an appointment and back, and smoked 4 cigarettes and 5 small cigars. A friend suggested them, and they are wonderful! They are the size of a normal cigarette. But the good thing is that, like normal cigars, if you leave it in the ashtray, it goes out, you forget about it, then after some time you feel like a smoke, you light it on again. So with one, you feel like having three! Plus it saves me all the poisons of the paper! Just it costs double from the smokes...lol. But I am willing to spend more for this cause.
Lately I have been surfing a lot about exercise. Inspired by the mighties DG and Kimba, my exercise queens, I have been considering stuff.
So last night, I had a long talk with hubby, and I told him all my considerations. Surely I have the treadmill at home. But I am not in a good shape. I mean, cardio won't just do it for me. I need weights. I need the strength and the shrinkage weights bring. So I am considering the gym.
omg! It is 9.20!!! I got to go to work!!! I will post the rest from there, because I would seriously need your opinion on this!
OK...at my office now :)
So I was reading all this information about weight training vs cardio, and how weight training should be done first, how muscles eat fat for breakie, lunch and dinner, especially how they snack on fat after the work out, etc.
I will not do a proper weight training at home. I know myself. I will never put on a work out dvd and do it.
A new gym opened, right in the middle between home and work. It has everything. Body Pump classes, spinning classes, Body Combat, Pilates, swiss ball classes, a pool for aquaerobics, everything! And it is HUGE! But it is mighty expensive too. 600 euros for a year! Or, 85 euros monthly!
I cannot afford the 600 right now. Plastic is out of the question, since we are paying our last credit card off, and I still have the last payment of 400 to do for the treadmill.
So I was thinking, after the talk with Angelos last night, that perhaps I should sell the treadmill. I bought it for 1500 euros in May, I guess the less I can sell it for is 1000. Just enough to pay it off and buy me the yearly subscription to the gym.
I am serious.
I have about 20 kilos to loose. I put myself a date. June. Beginning, middle or end doesn't matter. But June it is! I reckon that in 25 weeks I can do it. It is an average of 0.8 a week. I find this doable.
Then, I find it hard to let my treadmill go. Him and I had some great time together. But also, my freind Sofia wants to loose 12 kilos too. And this gym is 5 minutes from her shop. If I persuade her to go together every morning, then we could push each other. Plus she will be driving me there too. And the metro station is right in the front door of the gym, which is ideal for me to get to work.
Gimme your opinion?
