I probably work out just like you do.
I’ll walk you through the steps of how I do it and you let me know if it matches up with how you get your sweat on.
- I must make sure I’m not home alone, which by the way is the same rule for showering.
- I first have at least 30 or 40 ounces of water, a cup of coffee, a bowl of wheat bran with fruit, and my 9 morning pills.
- I usually do at least one or two logic puzzles on my cell phone to wake up my brain.
- I set up a chair next to my recumbent bike where I put all of my necessary items. This includes a big glass of water, salt tablets, oximeter, blood pressure cuff, and a sweat towel because I’ll surely be dripping. Oh, and of course my cell phone.
- If my husband is sleeping after a graveyard shift, then I must make sure I have a long distance babysitter. I usually text a friend who is good at setting alarms and also knowing what they mean when they go off. I ask if they can set an alarm for 15 minutes and one for 30 to text me. If I don’t reply then they call me. If I don’t answer the call, then they need to call and wake Tom up and tell him to come find his unconscious wife.
Is that the same way y’all work out?
Here’s a snapshot about half way through.
Oxygen is a teeny bit low, and heart rate is a touch high.
The important part is that I didn’t pass out, I did sweat a bunch, and I’m still smiling. I got it done, had lunch and then got sick and spent the next 5 or 6 hours alternating between the bathroom and eating saltines. But hey, I did it.
This pretty much sums up my thoughts at the end of each workout.
Thanks for the virtual babysitting, Mev!
