30 Day Challenge – Gym – Day 20

Day 20

Day 20

I ran into my newest coworker today at the gym. He was signing up for a free personal training session. Of course, that’s how they get you at the gym. The trainers are very “in your face” and can be very persuasive.

I was talking to him when the personal trainer that was helping him sign up showed up and started yabbering at me. She pretty much blocked me from conversation from my coworker, which is rude but understandable. She didn’t want me to talk him out of it or something.

So, it looks like I may have dropped a few more pounds. I’ll wait until the end of the week to confirm. đŸ˜€

Day 19

Day 19

Another late day workout that will probably cause me to toss and turn in bed. I love how the gym is so dead on Sundays, especially at night.

Ahh, iTunes just froze on my computer…

Two more days until 3 weeks!

Day 18

Ahh, I’m 18 again! Fresh out of high school and ready for college life.

I felt my left knee popping towards the end of my workout. Perhaps this is my body telling me to slow it down? I went on a walk around the neighborhood after my workout just to make sure my knee was okay. No problems there.

I’m 3 days away from 3 weeks, yay!

Day 17

Day 17 is OVER! I wanted to work out at lunch, but then a coworker suggested that we go to Christian’s Tailgate for lunch. I can’t pass up their burgers or their onion rings. If you live in Houston and you love burgers, go to Christian’s Tailgate and get their Country Fried Bacon Burger. You will not be disappointed.

I will have to kick my workout up another notch in a week or so. I may start going to a Thursday class that the gym has called “Total Conditioning.” The class combines heavy cardio with multiple repetitions of weights. If nothing else, I’m thinking about going just to support Julie the instructor. The success and failure of their classes depends on attendance.

Day 16

I skipped out on an office lunch to Brio’s Tuscan Grill today to go to the gym. Today was national lasagna day or something like that and the local Italian place had half off lasagna. Instead, I ate some leftovers and chilled at home.

I can’t believe how quickly I am getting used to the harder workout that I started a few days ago. It is amazing how quickly the body adapts to things like that!

We’re past the halfway point folks!

Day 15

Day 15

After a horrible day in the markets, I worked out twice as hard at the gym. Days like this are hard to swallow and I’m glad I had a lot to do at work to keep my attention away from the falling markets.

I’ve broken the two week barrier.

I can do this.

Day 14

Day 14

I wouldn’t recommended drinking a Crown and Diet before working out. I actually ended up scarfing down some food, waiting an hour or so, and then going to the gym. Usually I will go at lunch if I want to drink after work, but I didn’t today.

We invited the new engineer out for a drink to welcome him into the group. I had missed the engineer’s lunch yesterday so I figured this made up for it. He seems like a good guy.

Two entire weeks of working out are behind me. This is pretty neat stuff!
