I am getting ready to go to the gym for the first time to work out on the machines, alone as my DH says he has to fix the furnace but I don't see him down there working. I am nervous. I hope there is someone there to show me how to use them the first time. I will post more when I get home.
Well I am back from the gym. Just when you thought you were getting in pretty good shape you start a new exercise program and whammo, back to being in terrible shape. I was first off upset that I couldn't find a trainer and I picked a busy time to go. I thought it would be quiet around 1 but it wasn't. I didn't know what they would recommend starting off on so I started with the recumbent bike for 10 minutes. Not much I know but I wanted to try various machines. Next I did the treadmill for 10 minutes. I had to ask the person next to me how to turn it on, duh. That went pretty good but I was surprised when I got off I had trouble with my balance. I had to grab hold so I didn't make a fool of myself and fall. From there I tried the epilitcal (sp) thing I had heard about. The older then me lady who was using it before I got on had just done about 20 minutes. In 5 minutes I was pretty miserable. My heart started getting pretty irregular again so I quit after 5 and did a walk around until my heart slowed down. Then I did the regular bike for 15 minutes. They were doing a class on the circuit and you can't use them while they have class so I decided to call it a day. I am upset not to have found anyone to tell me if I was starting out the right way or doing to much, to little etc... but I will try a different time tomorrow and be more aggressive about finding help. I must admit to being a bit put off my some young hard bodies there and felt uncomfortable. Darn my husband for not going with me.
I collect art pottery and here are 2 nice little items I picked up. Aren't they neat.
This is a McCoy Acorn and leaves Jardiniere from 1920. Looks great with my jade tree.
Here is a Roseville Vase from 1942 in the Foxglove pattern.
It is now after supper and the lower right abdominal pain I have been having off and on all day is getting more insistent. I sure hope it isn't my appendix? If it gets worse I will have to go to OPD. The last time I had pain like this they told me I had a large mass in my abd. Pretty scary. I hope I don't get news like that again.
