I pulled up to the gym this morning, at my usual time,, and my parking spot was taken. Now i dont have a special parking spot at the gym just for me,, but I do normally park in the same spot. Creature of habit,, what can I say. I had a quick warmup on the treadmill, and walked over to the weight room and saw that one of the HUGE mirrors was cracked.. I dont mean a little crack eaither! Now this could have been bad! Can you imagine a mirror that size shattering?In our gym the weight rack for dumbells is right in front of the mirrors. I guess what had happend is someone tripped on some weights that were on the floor, while trying to put their dumbells on the rack. WOW< that could have been bad Now I know itsnot our job to pick up after everone in the gym. But if you see something out of place in the gym that might potentially hurt someone. Pick it up,, or say something to the staff.
There are so many people in the gym who do not feel the need to pick up after themselves. Take for instance, today I was in the gym and there was a mother/son working out together. I have not seen them there before. They left about 10 plates on the leg press machine. Now this might seem more of a hassle than a safety issue, but what if someone not very strong wanted to do leg presses, they would have to move 450lbs,just to do the workout they were wanting to do. That doesnt seem fair.
Having a neat tidy gym is important, please everyone do your share to keep it neat and injury free!
Recently I have been setting weekly goals towards fitness. It seems i have not been having the progress I have wanted, and I had to make some kind of change. Setting goals are a great way to become better are what you strive for. I have done 12 week programs, and also set dates to get to a certain weight, or size. These long term goals, have not seemed to work well for me.. I have decided to set weekly goals, This keeps my focus more on what i am trying to accolmplish. My goal for last week was to run at least 6 miles.. I have almost reached my goals.. I have 2 miles left, which I might have to ride on my bike to finish it up. This next week I am going to focus more on my eating. 6-7 meals a day, focusing on protien, and complex carbs. Also to eat more vegtables. I never seem to get enough vegtables.
What are your goals>? How do you seem to get them accomplished? Let me konw what works for you :)
I was walking out of church today, and the guy in front of me had levis on.. The size is right on the tag.. 32x34.. I personally would not wear my jean size on the outside of my pants.. We are so worried about what size we are, and how much we weigh. Why cant we focus more on our health, and what we feed our bodies? Our health should be more important than our jean size. And why are we so eager to tell everyone about losing weight? ( me included,,lol). We should be eager to tell everyone how weve gone all week without eating a greasy burger, or a glass full of sugar!
So i am going to try harder to focus on my health, instead of my jeans size! Mabye at some point they will catch up with each other!!
