Well, I'm still trying to stay healthy and it's been difficult to do so this week as the little one has got what my girls had last week. An 8 month old is no fun to have around when he's got a fever and needs to be cuddled all day. So, that's what I've been doing, cuddling...
Last night on the Biggest Loser, two teams had access to the gym while the rest of the teams had to workout on their own. They still had the benefit of the trainers though. I started thinking if it was really necessary to have a gym? At the end of the show, one of the teams that was able to use the gym was under the yellow line. It would seem to me that it doesn't matter what kind of exercise you get, as long as you get exercise. In fact, many of the contestants were complaining more this week about being sore and sweating than when they work out in the gym.
I haven't been in a gym for over 15 years! Do I plan on going back to the gym? I'm not sure yet. I'm still satisfied with my maintenance plan, but someday soon have thought about adding weight training. One thing that I am worried about is gaining weight if I do so. I am always close to my goal weight each month and if I gain weight by gaining muscle that would put me over the top.
What would a gym do for me? I would love to have a trainer pushing me, but right now I just don't have the motivation to work out more than I already do. May change in the future, only time will tell.
