This morning I was up at 5:15am.
I planned on going to a 5:45am strength-training class at the Recreation center I’d recently joined.
When I got there I was surprised to see how many overweight, obese and over-50 ladies there were there. Not all were fat, however. Some looked great, and a few were younger than the rest.
I was thrilled there was a good turn-out so early in the morning.
But, I was frustrated with the look of the space. It seemed crowded.
I was not wearing a mask, and neither was anyone else!
Instead of jumping into the strength class, I got on a parallel elliptical machine to tighten my thighs, and then I rode a stationary bike that had a video game on it.
That was pretty cool.
I have an online membership included in my gym package and I have free weights at home.
Back home I did some stretching with the video to loosen up my shoulders and back.
It’s important to warm up before you exercise too.
Before I left for the gym this morning I made a cold caffeinated beverage. Ice cubes, oatmilk and a shot of espresso from my Nespresso machine.
It didn’t burn my tongue like the usual hot coffee I make every morning, but I didn’t think it tasted all that great.
I will start weight-training at home today.
As for my weightloss journey, I an thrilled to say I am close to no longer being categorized as obese.
Since I started in May I have dropped 12 lbs. I hope to drop another 12 pounds by mid-August .
Then I will no longer be classified as obese!
I look forward to the time when I will not be in the overweight category either.
I want to be able to be in the normal weight range again and dress up in cute retro-outfits like this.
But, it all takes patience and time to make it to your goals.
And I always track my calories on my Samsung Health app.
