I went to the gym yesterday afternoon and boy and I feeling great, though a bit sore. It has been close to 2 weeks since I have been to the gym with my main excuse as recovery from my bronchitis. So, I took it slow with an easy-going pace yesterday.
The workout started off with roughly 20 minutes of elliptical cardio work. Luckily for me, I always have an iPod loaded with audio books or I would probably get bored out of my mind. After the cardio, I did my rounds of weight lifting. I keep things like and don’t exert myself too much. My goal is for general fitness, so I yesterday I did 2 sets of 10-12 reps on each machine.
After the weights, I went into this room in the corner and did some ab crunches on the balance ball. I am quite fond of working out on the balance balls as they require you to engage your core muscles for stability. This room had some balance boards that you could stand on and do other strength resistance exercises, but I was not that adventurous.
So far, I have lost roughly 7% of my body weight and I am roughly half way to my goal of losing 15%. Yeah!
