Okay, it's been weeks since I've checked in, but I have been working out! Last week DH and I went to Ireland for vacation. DH had been working in the middle east, so on his way home he stopped in Ireland and I flew over to meet him. While he was in the middle east I had bumped up my workouts. I was walking at a 5 to 5.5% incline at 3.4 to 3.5. That's the best I've done on the treadmill since I was in high school. Yeah me! And it paid off too! The first two days of our trip was a bit hard...we walked everywhere! Once I got use to the walking, it was great...plus I felt good that I could handle all of our walking.
Before I left, I did try to use the weights at our gym. Pretty much, since November I have not been a regular with my weights. Though I have weights at home, I find that I don't use them that much. I do better if I can fit it all in when I am at the gym. Our new gym has a great selection of machines, but only two really worked for me. I found two that did, one for my back and the other for my chest muscles. For everything else I am going to stick to my handweights. Luckily, this gym also has hand weights. So my current goal is to do weights once a week. If I can stick to that, then I may up it to twice a week.
It'll probably be next before I go back to the gym. I caught a cold the last day of our trip. Last night we got back so I have been resting ever since. I now understand why people say avoid flying on a plane with you've got a cold.
