Maybe it sparks joy for her?



Today I got LOTS of exercise but I'd give it back in a hot minute. For those that don't walk long distances in several inches of snow without snow shoes, you won't understand the day my hamstrings and glutes and calves have had today but I persevered and I made it to the ibuprofen bottle so it's okay.

Today was 35 minutes on my second favorite stairmaster. It's a little broken but still gave me a good workout. I guess I shall need to report it. I watched Judge Judy on my ipad.

I had a long locker room talk with Taylor. It was really good to see her. She is in a relationship with a man named Joseph while still sleeping with the billionaire she works for, Ross, but they know about each other. Joseph is likely moving to a job in Vancouver. He's an investment banker, and she said that if he asks her to go with him, she would, in hopes of marrying him. She said that he has ghosted her twice but that they seem to have developed a new level of intimacy. I asked why he ghosted her, and she said the first time she had left her toothbrush at his place without asking . I'd be sad if she moved to Vancouver! Let's see how this plays out...

Today was 35 minutes on my favorite stairmaster. Levels 9 down to 1, twice. I was so excited to go up another level! Then 35 minutes on the weight floor.

I hung out with Taylor before and after working out. We were just on each other's schedule. I really like Taylor a lot and enjoyed spending the time with her.

Yesterday was a really good hour long spin class. It was with a new instructor I haven't had before. I liked the music she played and I liked how she taught. She didn't talk a lot. Some instructors are constantly talking- which serves a purpose. But I like to be in my head when I'm working out. Her silence let me get there better and it made it for a really good ride.

Today will be 7k on rowing machine after work.

Today was 40 minutes on the climb mill, and 35 on the weight floor (Total 1 hr 15 min).

There is a fellow who is newly into the stairmaster and wants it the same time I do. So thus it takes up one of the stairmasters, so usually the other one is in use. I stared forlornly and desperately at him and the person on the other stairmaster today but it was clear they were not in getting off. In my head I started to hear a song. "It's beginning to look a lot like the climb mill." Not a happy song! I gave up and clomped on over to the climb mill, which I have avoided for awhile now. I was happy to start being able to see my heart rate again which I can't on the stairmaster; however, the towels slide off the side because it's so vertical, and as if life couldn't get worse, my towel slid off today and somehow shut the machine down until I removed the fallen towel! I understand it was a safety precaution but, damn, my heart rate went back to 120 before I was back on. I kept my heart rate in the 150s while on it.

The anorexic woman was walking around without her shirt on in the locker room but with her arms crossed over her chest. Her name is Laura. We know one another but often just exchange a smile. There is also a woman I call the Borderline (as in "personality disorder") woman who I seem to be crossing paths with in the locker room a lot lately. She's exceptionally pretty, and I sometimes think about how perhaps that allows her to act out more without consequence. She was annoyingly curled up on the bench under the coat rack today, so I avoided getting my coat until she'd cleared out.

Hope everyone has some pleasant exercise this week

Today I did 35 minutes on the stairmaster, my favorite one. Thank goodness for small things. I did Level 8 down to 1 (2 minutes each level) twice, with extra "1"s at the end for cool-down.

I'm low on sleep but wasn't tired. Sometimes that happens. The body and brain are full of mysteries.

LOL (or not), this week has been super busy at work. Up and Down stairs, twice a day, sometimes more (they're big, big stairs and very high), and I've had big project's development at work, which requires me to walk back and forth between stations, etc. I must have walked around "Central Park" so many times that I swear my legs are cussing me out. Back too. I need to get some sort of gizmo to wear on my wrist so I can track my exercise at work, because I actually tried on an cute summer outfit (halter top type ensemble, one piece) and I can't even see the buddha tummy I used to have. Now it's the annoying ripple, lmao.

I'm super tired tonight, but the exercise is paying off in rewarding ways.

I even go for walks around the neighborhood on my lunch hour and gosh, it was super dreamy, spring like weather today: Low 60s, decadent sunshine, and birdsong was in the air.... all which lowered my anxiety and blood pressure.

So …. after work tonight, I treated myself to a shopping spree in my favorite neighborhood in St John's. They had a cheese and wine art thing going on, but the real special was buy three spring dresses, get one free.

<<<<<<<---- Cha, Ching!!!

I got four new dresses and the owners of the dress shop commented tonight on how much my body shape has changed since last fall.

Exercise is my friend, and your friend too.

Happy Weekend to all the Exercisers!

i still have 2 weeks before I’m supposed to lift anything over ten pounds (lol I don’t think I’ve been very good about that) Anyways.... I walked about a mile and a half round trip to the pond to fish. I also ran up and down my porch steps about ten times. (Quite a few steps) And washed one of my cars. I have been active daily and my muscles are finally coming back! I feel so good and strong and I am dedicated to making myself stronger and healthier all around.

Today I had an amazing work-out. It felt great after a stressful work week. I did 45 minutes on my favorite stair master (Pattern: Levels 8 down to 1 twice, 2 minutes for each level; then Levels 8 down to 1 once, 1 minute each level; then 5 minutes of Level 1 as a cool down). Then I did 30 minutes on the weight floor. For the first 15 minutes I work out hard, then for the second 15 I stretch and do yoga poses.

My dad suggested I get my hematocrit tested for anemia, so thus I did and my blood showed my levels were in the anemic range. I bought some iron pills off Amazon. Perhaps they are giving me energy. That would be nice.

Wishing everyone a good rest of the weekend!

Iron deficiency would definitely make you feel sluggish and tired. I'm so glad you feel better, nyc!

Today, I did a hella wicked impression of a sloth.

Today will be my exercise day of rest. The last two days was mostly on the rowing machine and walking my dog up big hilly areas. I've started doing sprinting on the rower and that seems to have woken up some muscles. I'm a little sore and it feels really good!

Hope everyone has a good week!

Today, Monday, I repeated what I did yesterday (quoted below). I really took a long time at the gym to psych myself up to exercise because I did not sleep well the night before (went to bed late- there was some online craft shopping involved), so I was quite tired. But eventually I made it on over to my favorite stairmaster, and it ended up not being too hard to get in my groove.

Today was mostly running around like heck at work and then power walking the dog. I walked him to my mother's house to see if I could get her to come walk with us but she declined. Too cold for her. But we had a nice catch-up on her porch.

I haven't exercised since Monday, but I got back in the swing of things today, Saturday. I did 45 minutes on a Climbmill and then 30 minutes on the weight floor. It was a great workout. I tied towels to the sides of the Climbmill, which worked okay, better than nothing, but could certainly be better. The railings of the Climbmill are so steep and my hands slip easily. Anyway, I held on tight and made due. The pattern I did was 5 minutes each from Level 8 down to Level 1.

I did not exercise this week because the iron pills I was taking for my anemia did not agree with me and it took me all week to figure that out. It was a pill I'd ordered off Amazon that generally had good reviews but it turned out I had the side effects of the people for whom it didn't work out. It is a kind of combination pill, and I'll just get regular iron from the pharmacy instead. So I ended up having to take Friday off from work and slept until Saturday, at which point I woke up feeling brand new. What a relief.

Today in the locker room, I was with Laurie, the anorexic. She was sitting on a bench naked, not facing me, and I'm not proud to say I started staring at her, fascinated by her bones jutting out of every part of her body. I looked too long, and her head turned as she started putting on tights, and I played it off successfully. I ran over to her and made conversation. She was not self-conscious about her body. I was wearing a Hello Kitty shirt, and so we had a nice conversation about Sanrio. Laurie is quite pretty, despite being alarmingly thin, and she always wears a plethora of bracelets on both her wrists. She wears perfect make-up and has a beautiful mane of long black hair. I think we are warming up to each other. Obese me and skinny Laurie. Clearly we both love to exercise!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend!

Today, Sunday, I did 40 minutes on my favorite stairmaster (Levels 9 down to 1, 2 minutes each level, 2 sets, with 1s for cool down), then I did 30 minutes on the weight floor. Total= 1 hour and 10 min.

The second favorite stairmaster is currently out of order so that makes the one other (my favorite) a hot commodity. When I see it empty, I rush to it! I was very excited that I was able to do the Level 9s!

I ran into Laurie, the anorexic woman, again. We again talked about Sanrio. I again told her that a big Hello Kitty movie is going to be coming out. She said, "Yeah, you mentioned that yesterday." Teehee.

Hope everyone has a great week.
