    How?

    I am in the gym quite a bit and have often wondered this. When people are on the stairmaster or eliptical, how can they read??? I have tried on a treadmill and can't do it. so with all that up and down I want to know how you guys do it? LOL, I have always wanted to know...

    Baby Weight

    I love going to the gym and I couldn't wait to get back after having my baby. Only three more pounds to go before geting back to my prebaby weight. Not much gets rid of the daily stresses of life better than a good workout.

    I usually go to the gym around 8pm

    before work. It's my time to refocus and release the stresses of the day. I love it. I love sweating out negativity. The stress drips off my back and I smile at my success.

    The gym has been the place I go to

    for the past few months to clear my head. To meet new people and maybe just maybe to flirt a little. I mean after awhile faces become familiar and they are there for the same reason I am. Well, just last weekend my hubby decided to join. And now all he wants to do is go with me...

    Three to four times a week,

    an hour each day. I don't like the BIG crowds, but I go anyway. I always feel like a million buck after I finish my work out, go home, and shower. Good stuff, that is. :D

    It's Addictive

    So, I've never been one of those sporty, fit people, lol. I am a big girl. Now, my friend got a Black Card membership at Planet Fitness, and I started going. After a couple of weeks of going every day, I found myself looking forward to the workouts. It hasn't hurt my feelings any...

    I love gym classes. I find being micro-managed

    while I work out very motivating. It's funny because in my life and job I hate being micro managed. There is something about another person making sure you're working at full capacity. Also there is research to prove that people work harder at classes. Favourite classes are...

    High school is like a public gym.

    Everyone in their own clique with their ear phones in their war and always mug you when you directly at them.

    The people that go to my gym are ridiculous.

    So there are handicapped parking spaces, yet I see these young men with no handicapped sign parking in those spaces to go the gym. Are you freakin serious? You're going to the gym to work out, but you're to damn lazy to walk a little farther? Then I see some seniors or people...

    I decided right after my birthday

    that there's no reason I should be in worse shape in my 30s than I was in my 20s. I didn't really apply myself in my 20s, and I got soft. Not fat, but very soft. I've never been a fan of fitness, but I decided I need to make an effort, especially since my career kind of relies...
