I Wore That Outside

It was a very big evening for me. My personal trainers made sure I had all the necessary equipment.



I put on my little outfit and the husband and I went to the gym!

This is actually an after shot. I was too nervous to stand still long enough for a before. I'm not sure if you can tell or not, but my hair is all one colour. Martha would be proud. She highly recommended, waving around very large scissors, that I no longer use any form of bleach. I didn't. I just used the product that is supposed to work with your natural hair colour. It would probably help if I could remember what that was.

I actually wore a track suit in public!!! I made the allowance to actually wear this ensemble because that is the purpose of those items. You are going to sweat, so you might as well wear the sweat suit.

I think I did quite well. I went on the elliptical machine for 30 minutes and survived. It has these settings for pre-programmed options. I selected the interval one. For certain increments of time, you are moving along smoothly and then the machine spices it up by increasing the resistance. It caught me off guard the first 6 times, but by the time I arrived at the 8th interval, I had it done path.

By the time we left my legs and arms were jelly and I had a problem hearing properly. I remember that happening when I was in high school. I would just push myself to the point where it felt like my heart was beating in my ears. There has been a lot of changes to my endurance level since those times. For example, I no longer have any endurance. I am however, going to change that.


My sneakers and I are very happy to have such a successful outing. I'm ready to go again.

Have a good night everyone. Rest assured the week end will soon be upon us.

Congratulations! Going to the gym can be scary -- you are very fortunate that your husband goes with you -- and great outfit too!

30 minutes on the Elliptical is not to be sneezed at -- way to go!
