I haven’t posted in a minute because I’ve been trying to get my blog organized. There’s so much to learn about writing a blog, my gosh. What I have done in the working out department is Zumba. And I got my butt handed to me. But that’s ok. I did Zuma on the Wii for 20 minutes and it felt like I had never done it in my life. I’ve gotten different Zumba games for the Wii since about 2010 or so. Back then it didn’t seem like it was so hard to do. It’s amazing how out of shape you can get over time.
I started messing with the settings on the elliptical trainer. Again, I got my butt handed to me. I think I put it up on the highest settings and thought I could just do it! Yeah right. My legs were screaming at me, demanding to know what was I doing. I went from gliding along on flat land to hiking in the Himalayas. I changed the settings back and calmed my legs down. It’s not always good to jump into things because you are feeling good. The body don’t like……hahahahahaha
My favorite pair of workout earbud headphones died on me. I had them for 10 years and I loved them. I, of course, have a backup pair. But there’s nothing like having your favorite thing that you can depend on. I’ll just have to see what’s on sale for the Black Friday sales. Maybe I can come across something good.
I’ve been looking at some more chair exercise videos on YouTube. There are so many to choose from. But I tend to stick with ones that are four to eight minutes long. I want a pre-workout before I get on the elliptical. Something that will help me stretch my muscles. I also stumbled across a video that uses these hand weights that are 2 lb balls. So what did I do? I went to Walmart and found them. The ones I found are purple and they are made by Gold’s Gym. They are made of rubber and I think are filled with sand. Here it is in my hand. It’s funny to think that 2lbs isn’t really heavy until you actually use it. They were about $5 each. They must have been waiting for me because there were only two left on the shelf. So now I’m slowly working weights into my workout also.
