    Day 4 Exhausted Cannot do more

    than 2 reps (20x)of leg raises on a bench. :-| that too, everyday. Hopefully, I'll be ok after a week. Also, standing toe touch with weights. (i don't know is there's a name for this) Argh! Too much for a Day 4 :-| I don't like this one, especially. Makes me frown...

    Being a 52 year old single mom can be a bit

    lonely but I'm so lucky to have a gorgeous 20 year old daughter that will still go workout and go to yoga with her mama.

    I like going to the gym,

    it gives you a fresh open mind for the rest of the day, it's a mission to build your body. It's a goal to keep strong, fit, progress, advance forward with a mission to exceed your healthy balance within your life style. A Breath of fresh air, clear mind, target driven, motivated...

    The best feeling in the world is being sore

    after a good workout. It means you accomplished something.

    lower body. Hips, knees, feet...... Well since my job requires so much travel, it is hard to get a good workout in. So on non travel days I work out at Lunch and again after work. This week I bagged the travel and actually got in 9 workouts! So my point is there is always a way...

    Day 3 Killer workout!

    I don't know if i was overestimating myself when I said Iwon't mind when my trainer asked, "are you exhausted or are you comfortable with more?". But I'm proud of myself for not saying "Done for the day " *pats myself on the back*

    I joined the gym in October

    and have never been happier about a decision! Since joining I've felt like I've found my personal safe haven, where I can think about everything, or nothing. Something about the gym that I find feels so warm and welcoming!

    The gym is the perfect place to vent all of

    life's frustrations and anger. Or even just a place to go and have a leisurely workout to fill in some spare time. I believe everybody should make time during the week to hit the gym.

    Day 9 What's the deal with 100 crunches?

    Bless my soul. Did my arms well. And cardio. But crunches and leg raises... Oh my dear God! I don't want to have bad feelings for my trainer. He's a sweet guy. But.. Um... Still... Why does he treat me like I've been training for months? :(

    Day 10 After that day,

    I had developed a mind block towards going to gym and a loathing for crunches. My body didn't seem to take it well too. Thanks to the celebrations at home that ensued, the next three days were gym holiday and I thanked God for it every day. So, today, after much...
