Good Amanda!

As I mentioned in my What I'm Loving Wednesday this week, I found a gym this week :) And not one of those huge franchise everyone and their grandma goes, type of gym (nothing against those, but I don't want to see people and have to chitchat while I work out, I want to get in, get my sweat on, and leave)


This gym is perfect for me. Why? You ask... sooooo many reasons. The biggest: it's open 24/7/365 so even on a holiday at midnight, I can go workout. This is perfect for me because I am totally one of those people who would be like "oh the gym closes in an hour, I guess I don't have time" and conveniently not go. This gets rid of my excuse.


I also love the group classes it has. This gym has Zumba (loves) kickboxing (yay) yoga (oh boy) and circuit classes. I've been to two classes already and I loves them.


The final major perk? It's quiet. The group classes I've been to have had less than 10 people in it each time AND each time I've got to the weight room there has been 0-3 people there... which means I can work out in peace, alone, without having to interact with other people... anti-social Amanda wins again! 


I signed up on Wednesday, and have already gone I've gone four times in four days!!! okay, I know that's a pathetic accomplishment, but it's actually great for me to go to the gym four days in a row. I'm fine working out at home everyday, but I don't push myself as hard as I should and I tend to workout for a minimal amount of time. 


In an effort to be more serious about the gym (since I'm paying for it and if I don't go Drew's gonna get all pissy) I am going to (try to) blog about my workouts here on Sunday's so I can keep track of it. I debated about posting my weight here... but I'm just not ready for that type of scrutiny yet... granted I'm way below what I weighed at this time last year... I'm still not comfortable with my body enough to announce to the whole world what I weigh... maybe later, for now just enjoy my workouts:


Thursday: 1 hour cardio boot camp (omg that hurt) 


Friday: 45-minutes on the elliptical, 30 minutes of strength training 


Saturday: 1-hour Zumba class


Sunday: 35-minutes on the elliptical, 40 minutes of strength training
