MAN, today was a good day at the gym!! For the past week or so, I've been waking up about 4:15-4:30 am. Every stinkin' day. I know it's due to the chaos going on around here. But, this lack of sleep has been screwing up my workouts. I always try and fall back asleep, but it never works. Today was no different. I think I may have dozed from about 5:20-5:30, then again from 6:25-6:45, but seriously, that's it. After that, I was afraid to fall asleep because I wanted to make sure Stud got his lazy butt up for school on time. On Tuesday, he missed the first hour of class! Ugh!
Anyway, I stayed up. I was lying there thinking, "Oh, great, another day I'll be dragging at the gym." I ended up staying home until Stud left for school, and Magnum left for his parents' house. I didn't get to the gym until about 10am. And, guess what. I felt great!!!
I was a little discombobulated at first because for the first time EVER, someone was using my machine. The nerve!! Seriously, though, I always use the exact same elliptical machine every day, so it threw me a little to have to use a different one. I know, get a life, ChiTown!
Once I got going on the "new" machine, though, I was a monster!! Check it out:
5.5 miles (yeah, baby!)
Ab crunches 2x30@50
Straight arm abs 15@50
Straight arm abs 45@60
Inner thigh 2x30@60
Outer thigh 2x30@60
Shoulder press 3x15@10
Naturally, I ended the day with 2 Hydro Massages. Ahhhhhh....
I actually looked into the cost of these machines, just so I'll be ready when I win the lottery. A new one is $25,000-30,000. Yeah, really. I found a couple used ones on eBay for $9-10,000. Darn, just a little over my budget.
