Trying to motivate

Trying to motivate

I think I need to break up with my new gym. (insert sad emoji face here)

I showed up last Monday for my favorite workout, “Ultimate Dumbbell” and found instead a sign that read: “Reminder: No 9:15 am Class Today”. Reminder? It’s the first I’ve ever heard of it. Considering I’m either one of three or four people, or the only one in this class, how hard would it have been to contact me to let me know? I was so mad. I thought I had found the perfect place. Back to square zero. Arg.

So, I went for a 45 minute run on the Saucon Rail Trail instead. A beautiful warm sunny day. I got a great workout and it turned out to be an awesome start to the day, and the week.

Tuesday, I decided I needed to do some kind of muscle toning workout. I’d have to find something I could do at home, by myself even though that totally goes against my rules. Something like what I used to do at my gym. There are tons of resources on the interwebs, but searching for workouts is tedious and I felt my motivating slipping away.

I settled on this series of moves. Squat thrust Squat jump, Spiderman climbers, Pushup burpees, Jump lunges, Football drill. Before I started, I would need an interval timer. I found and downloaded this one called, “Interval Timer” to my iPad. Then I had to figure out how to use it. Then I had to keep switching back and forth between the workout blog post and the timer app. I couldn’t exactly understand how to do the moves based on the pictures and some of them seemed unsafe. Jump up with weights over your head? So, I modified. I sort of got a workout. Not really. It sucked.

What now?
