At long last, I finally got back to strength training and went twice this week. I made this one of my goals starting out this year. From mid-2015 to mid-2016, I had worked twice a week with a personal trainer doing strength training. Then I had to stop when I did my plastic surgery. I wasn’t fully cleared to do all strength training until around the start of this year.
In January, I rejoined the Y and said I would start going at least twice a week. And, then, I just…didn’t. No real excuse. Yes, I had a lot of things going on. But, if I wanted to make it a priority I could have made it a priority. I always just found it easier to use busy schedule as reason not to go. When I go off track, I find it really hard to get back on.
The past 5 weeks or so I finally got back into using my treadmill, but I knew I really needed to strength train. So, Tuesday I went with my husband to the Y. I had actually planned to do it last week, but the hurricane legitimately derailed that (Y was closed most of the week).
We are actually going to a different Y than the one I went to before. The old one I went to is a little closer, but I like the facilities and equipment at the new Y a little better. It is also larger and has a greater variety of equipment. I can still go the the other Y if I want to, so we’ll see if I like the new one better. [Read more…]
