A Woman's Week at the Gym
« on: January 22, 2009, 09:08:22 PM »

Something my sister had sent to me.  A funny account, especially for those who've been through this kind of thing or had a New Year's resolution to get in shape, in that perhaps you can relate to this account of a woman's trial week at a gym.  Forgive the implied expletives, but I'm sure there are many reading this who would perhaps express the same sentiments under the same circumstances.   ;D  Enjoy!

Shoot!!!  I just realized this is in the wrong forum.  It should be in the Off Topics Discussion Forum.  Anyways, forgive the mixup!   :-[

A WOMAN'S WEEK AT THE GYM

 Dear Diary,
 For my birthday this year, my daughter (the dear) purchased a week
 of personal training at the local health club for me.

 Although I am still in great shape since being a high school
 football cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea
 to go ahead and give it a try.

 I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer
 named Belinda, who identified herself as a 26-year-old aerobics
 instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear.

 My daughter seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The
 club encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my progress.

 ________________________________
 MONDAY:
 Started my day at 6:00 a.m. Tough to get out of bed, but found it
 was well worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Belinda
 waiting for me. She is something of a Greek goddess - with blond
 hair, dancing eyes and a dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!!

 Belinda gave me a tour and showed me the machines. I enjoyed
 watching the skillful way in which she conducted her aerobics class
 after my workout today.  Very inspiring!

 Belinda was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was
 already aching from holding it in the whole time she was around.
 This is going to be a FANTASTIC week!!!

 ________________________________
 TUESDAY:
 I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door.
 Belinda made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the
 air....then she put weights on it!  My legs were a little wobbly on the
 treadmill, but I made the full mile.  Belinda's rewarding smile made
 it all worthwhile.  I feel GREAT!!!  It's a whole new life for me.

 _______________________________
 WEDNESDAY:
 The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the
 counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it.  I believe I have
 a hernia in both pectorals.  Driving was OK as long as I didn't try
 to steer or stop.  I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot.

 Belinda was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered
 the other club members.  Her voice is a little too perky for that early
 in the morning and when she scolds, she gets this nasally whine that
 is VERY annoying.

 My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Belinda put me on the
 stair monster.  Why the hell would anyone invent a machine to
 simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators?  Belinda told me
 it would help me get in shape and enjoy life.  She said some other
 crap too.

 _______________________________
 THURSDAY:
 Belinda was waiting for me with her vampire-like teeth exposed as
 her thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl.  I couldn't
 help being a half an hour late - it took me that long to tie my shoes.

 Belinda took me to work out with dumbbells. When she was not
 looking, I ran and hid in the restroom. She sent another skinny
 b**** to find me.

 Then, as punishment, she put me on the rowing machine....which I sank.
 _______________________________
 FRIDAY:
 I hate that b**** Belinda more than any human being has ever hated
 any other human being in the history of the world.  Stupid, skinny,
 anemic, anorexic little cheerleader.  If there was a part of my body
 I could move without unbearable pain, I would beat her with it.

 Belinda wanted me to work on my triceps.  I don't have any triceps!
 And if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the damn
 barbells or anything that weighs more than a sandwich.

 The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition
 teacher.  Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama
 coach or the choir director?

 ________________________________
 SATURDAY:
 Belinda left a message on my answering machine in her grating,
 shrilly voice wondering why I did not show up today.  Just hearing
 her voice made me want to smash the machine with my planner;
 however, I lacked the strength to even use the TV remote and ended
 up catching eleven straight hours of the Weather Channel.

 ________________________________
 SUNDAY:
 I'm having the church van pick me up for services today so I can go
 and thank God that this week is over.  I will also pray that next
 year my daughter (the little snot) will choose a gift for me that is
 fun....like a root canal or a hysterectomy.  I still say if God had
 wanted me to bend over, He would have sprinkled the floor with
 diamonds!!!


 :D

I kinda thought that's what it would be like so I never went and besides I have stairs at home and when I drag my vacuum cleaner up stairs I think that counts for something. My sister and her husband recently retired, got a trainer and started going to the gym, well. a month later they still didn't lose weight probably because they went home and had martinis and laid around.  So funny, Judy

MMMMMM, honey buns.  ;D
However, they rank right up there with pizza; I can't eat it if I want to reach my target weight of 175-180.

In Jan 08', I weighed 230 lbs; in Oct 08', I weighed 220 lbs, I hired a personal trainer. Jan 09', I weigh 194 lbs.
My trainer made me keep a nutritional diary, and I had to bring it to every training session for the 1st month. In the beginning she required 30 minutes of cardio. After the 1st month, she raised the bar so to speak and required me to burn 500 calories before a workout. That is 1 hour of cardio on a stationary bike at level 8, 40 minutes on a treadmill at an incline of 10, or 40 minutes on an arc machine at the lowest level. Then we had a 30 minute workout that burned another 300-400 calories.  :o

I just have to tell you how I lost 29 1/2 lbs. in 2 months. My daughter and her family invited me to go to Los Cabo in Mexico for a week. I knew it was going to be glitzy there so I bought a bathing suit 2 sizes too small which cost me $110.00 and I hung it on my bedroom door at night and in the morning I would take it downstairs with me and hang it where I could see it. By the time I went to Mexico with my new shades and dye job I didn't look too bad. I have since gained back 20. I need somewhere else to go. Judy
