Gym Clothes, Gym Closed
This is what I wore to the gym today but alas no one saw it! Darn!
No but seriously, I knew it was coming. I’ve been checking the gym Web site every day.
This morning, I put on my work out clothes, had my coffee, checked the site (Open! Yay!) then left for my Tuesday work out which always includes: my five-mile run, shoulders, triceps & Yoga.
But (tears) when I saw the empty parking lot, I knew. The sign on the door stated they’d closed last night at 8. What the heck? And they didn’t call me!?
Okay. Now, the real work begins. This is when I really need to rely on my creativity, discipline and motivation to stay in good health.
Lynda at Home
1/Walks-I’ll walk my dogs every day, sometimes twice a day. I have a really good 2-mile route with steep hills.
2/Stairs-I will run up and down my stairs. I have 17 steps in my house and this is a great place to burn calories
3/Squats & More-I’ll do more body-weight exercises like squats, lunges, burpees and more
4/Equipment-I have some gym equipment and will utilize it as often as possible
5/Yoga-I’ll grab my mat and do Yoga at home. By the way, click here for my favorite Yoga mat I’ve had dozens before I found this one and I love it. I never slip and it lasts more than a year and that’s great—since I do Yoga six days a week.
6/Abs-Now is a great time for me to do abs whenever I’m watching TV.
7/Stretching-I’ll stay limber by stretching my hamstrings and quads
8/Cleaning-I’ll clean. More dusting, sweeping
9/De-clutter-I’ll finally get my closet in order—something I’ve been working on for um..a couple of years.
10/Read-I’ll hit the books--More self-help books, more fiction.
11/Investigative cooking-I’ll be searching for more recipes as I try to find dishes that won’t aggravate my stomach condition.
Notice, I call these “plans”. I’ve never really been in to working out at home so I pray I can suck it up, so that later I won’t have to suck it “in”!

Meanwhile, tomorrow I have an appointment with the allergist to find out what food I’m allergic to.
It’s possible (sob!!) eggs are the culprit. Darn it. This will be tough—as egg dishes are my go-to food for healthy meals.
