I used my new gym membership. I met up with my friend just as she was taking her starting measurements. She really didn't want to do that, but they must've encouraged her. I think it will be a great tool for her to see her progress. When we worked out together at the Y, they did very little for us and the ladies at this gym seem very involved with their clients. I'm pretty excited about that!
So, we walked about 40 minutes and I managed a little over a mile and a half. Then we got our weight workout training on the machines and the trainer marked everything down on our cards for each of us. This is so amazingly useful for me because I have a difficult time remembering numbers so I will be able to check the card, match it up to the machine, see what height setting I used, how much I should lift, and how many reps I should do. We have a 2nd training on Wednesday with another trainer who is super nice. Can't wait!
And then we did 10 minutes on elipticals which I had never before used successfully. At the Y, the machines felt really high off the ground and very clumsy to me. I did have problems going fast enough for it to keep going and it took me a little longer to get my 10 minutes than my friend.
Dinner's ready. Must "run" for now and feed the fam.
