The gym: day 10
Dull entry today. I met with my "impersonal trainer" yesterday. Not very productive. I get three free 1 hour sessions with a trainer so I picked the buffest looking guy thinking he'd know what was up. For all that he wasn't very helpful. I usually do an hour on the treadmill and an hour on weights. I got there ten minutes early so he said "Do some cardio and I'll be right there." So I ended up only doing the ten minutes. Then he wanted to show me all the leg machines. That's not something I do, want to do or really need to do. My legs and ass are buff. It's the rest of me that sucks, especially my abs (read: fat beer gut). But whatever, I preservered. I need more weight at least since today I don't feel like I got a workout at all. After 4 sets on 4 machines I was like "whatever" so I went on the eliptical cross trainer for the rest of the hour and went home in disgust. So today I'm going back to my regular workout. I have to waste the next two Mondays with the guy so hopefully I'll learn something then. Fact: I need to quit smoking and drinking beer. These things are holding me back considerably.What good is burning 500 calories a day on the treadmill and then putting in 1000 in beer? I ask you? Meh. I need a new drug. Nappy dugout!
