Prioritize me

Today I have my long "To Do" list. In the past, I would have put exercise on there & would never have gotten around to it. Today was a different story. I have to be honest & admit that exercise didn't come in at slot #1 though. Today was trash day so I did gather all the trash and take it to the curb before the trash men came. But THEN, I took my butt downstairs and did 30 minutes on the elliptical. Oh actually, my original plan was to do 10 minutes of jump roping and only 20 on the elliptical. However, after a very short minute or two, I realized that I just don't have what it takes to be a jump-roper anymore. I'm not quite sure if it's a fat/size issue, flexibility, coordination, or something else, but seriously...I was just pitiful. We won't seeing that jump rope again for a very long time. And I had such high hopes of double-dutching again some day. I'm crushed.

After cardio, I did about 30 minutes of lower body weights. Again, I didn't go all out balls-to-the-wall type workout because I do want to be able to walk this weekend at work. I'm going to have a hard enough time getting through the 16 hour shift on Saturday to worry about being able to walk.
I can definitely feel the arm workout from 2 days ago. It's a good discomfort. Let's me know I'm alive.

For anyone shopping around for an elliptical trainer, I highly recommend the Precor brand. They are quite pricey, but I think they're worth the money. I used this kind many years ago when I used to belong to Bally's gym. After I gave up my gym membership, I decided to buy the home version. I've had mine for about 10 years now and still love it. Mine isn't this exact model; since I've had it so long, it isn't featured, but they are very sturdy and have a bunch of different workout course options.
