Gym Rat

I am pretty sure I told you already that I have joined a gym. This, in and of itself, is a bit of a contradiction for a pilates instructor and purist because, in actuality, you really only need the big P for a complete body workout but I'll leave that argument for another day. I mainly joined the gym because my company will reimburse me and there's more range for cardio.

So last night after doing an intense half-hour on the arc trainer whilst watching the debate, I got the big ID that I would do a little bit of the Cybex machines. Now, I should tell you, I worked out with a trainer the entire month before I moved away from Little Rock and I was really getting into my fledgling gym rat mode. I have all sorts of equipment and dumb bells at home too, you know, but there's something about going to a gym that I really like. I think it's the focus time.

Granted, I have the world's only body that refuses to respond to conditioning no matter how hard I try, but I still like to feel like I'm making an effort in some capacity, know what I'm saying?

Feeling all warm and stretched out, I did a few machines, including preacher curls on one, and today cannot move my left arm without whimpering. I'm pretty sure I pulled something. Damn you muscles. Damn you to Hell.

p.s. Any opinions on the debate?
