Working out on the beach is not possible

I wouldn’t want to fit work out equipment in my small beach house

My boyfriend and I recently bought a beach house. I love hearing the ocean waves while I sleep, drink my coffee and work. It is so relaxing. I love being right near the water, sand and all the cute little shops. I had grand plans of working out on the beach. I thought I would go for runs in the sand and do all sorts of cardio drills right by the condo. The incline of the sand is so severe that it hurts my ankles, knees and feet. The wet sand also is very abrasive. My feet tend to tear and skin gets really dry. Working out on the beach turned out to not be possible. Thankfully I found a personal training center that is biking distance from my beach condo. I hop on my bicycle and it takes me less than ten minutes to get to the body wellness center. I can get one on one personal training, take a group fitness class or do my own thing. The gym has locker rooms I can shower up and keep some stuff at. I also can swim in the pool, use the steam rooms or the sauna as well. After a good work out, I do the quick bike ride back and I am at my little beach oasis. It honestly works out better that way too. I wouldn’t want to fit work out equipment in my small beach house. I also would worry about the salt and humidity rusting all my equipment as well. Having a gym membership makes it easier.

Making friends through fitness

I have found I am enjoying being physical and having something to do.

I got a promotion at work that requires me to move to a city where I didn’t know anybody. I was nervous but knew I would find a way to make new friends. The city office is always hustling and bustling. It is difficult to find a moment to chat people up, meet for drinks and make friends. I have resorted to finding friends elsewhere. I started thinking about what kind of people I wanted to be buddies with. I didn’t want to have friends that hung out at bars all week long. I didn’t want to weirdly make friends with a waiter or stalk a guy at the grocery store. I found that doing a group fitness class was the best option. I signed up for a gym membership and took as many classes as I could fit in my schedule. I do a yoga class, physical training class and a kickboxing class. I have met quite a few guys my age in the kickboxing and physical training class. I feel I am close to calling a few of them my friends. The yoga class is mainly women and I have a girl that I am slowly chatting up and hoping to take out on a date. The social aspect of the fitness classes is why I originally went. I have found I am enjoying being physical and having something to do. It is a nice little pick me up after work. I have more energy afterwards and sleep like a baby at night. The cost of the class is minimal for what I get out of it.

I needed something to do

COVID has really ruined everything.

I used to see a musical at the local theatre at least once a month. I always saw a few concerts over the summer, went to the farmer’s market regularly and I also did work happy hour every week. I was a very social person. I like having stuff to do and with the virus still around, there are not many options. I can’t travel, see any shows or go to events with people. I have been hunting for things to do and I have found one thing that is pretty good at helping me be social but safe. I found that the local health and wellness center offers virtual fitness classes. The class is led by a personal trainer and there are 9 other people in the class with me. I can only see the fitness expert, but I can hear the other people while I work out. It is fun that we all chime in and chat while working out. I also like having something on my schedule to do. I started out doing one class, but I like it so much that I do it four days a week. I do two days before work and I do the weekends. I get a different personal trainer and people in class with this method. I am hopeful that the gym will open up and have in person classes soon. I know that the personal trainer would use more equipment if that happened. I also could meet up with people outside of class. For right now, I am just enjoying seeing other people.

Being out of shape cost me

I recently had a scare that has gotten me focused on being healthy.

I was at a big business conference and was at it for hours.

I then went back to my hotel room dehydrated, tired and dying for a shower. When I stepped out of the shower I fell and bashed my head into the sink vanity. Because I couldn’t catch myself, I really tumbled and ended up puncturing a lung as well. I was stuck in the hospital for days and missed the rest of the conference. I also was out a ton of money due to my medical bills. I was disgusted with myself. I slipped and couldn’t stop my head and body from hitting the vanity and the ground. I was so out of shape that I couldn’t keep balance. How sad is that? Now I go to a local health club and get personal training. I don’t care if I have a six pack, big beefy arms or look like Chris Hemsworth. I just want to be able to fall and catch myself. My personal trainer has been really great about working me towards my goal. We practice falling, do tons of stretches and other balance exercises. The guy is pushing me to focus on some cardio work as well. He is not impressed by my stamina either. He also thinks nutritional counseling will help me see more progress with my weight. I like the results I am seeing, even though it is early on. I don’t ever want to be in a situation where I am too weak to save myself again.

Needed to kill an hour

My boyfriend and I share a vehicle. There was no reason to own a vehicle since the two of us had the same work schedule. Anytime I needed groceries, he wanted to go to the bank or there was a movie playing, the two of us went together. One car to two people has never been a problem. Recently my boyfriend’s work schedule changed. He got promoted and now has to work an hour later than me. I was debating on purchasing a vehicle so I can go home after work rather than wait around. I then decided to look in the area for something to do and found a fitness center that offers physical training classes. I have never worked with a personal trainer or worked out religiously before. I have found it to be very fun. I look forward to my fitness class and I am in the best shape of my life. Five days a week, after work I do the physical training class. I have noticed my arms look toned, my belly is smaller and I have way more energy. On top of this I am in a good mood after my class and I even sleep better at night. I have started talking to my boyfriend about possibly doing a couples fitness class over the weekend. I really enjoy being physical throughout the week. I never thought killing an hour after work could be so fun. The cost of the class is significantly less than what it would have cost to purchase a car for myself too.

Quickly need to get in shape

My fiance and I are scheduled to get married a lot sooner than expected.

The venue of my dreams was not available until a year from now.

I was disappointed, but booked it and figured I had that long to get in shape. I started eating a little better and working out around 30 minutes a day. I just got a call from the venue that they had a cancellation and can bump my big day up. I am getting married in four months and I don’t feel prepared. I do know that I don’t want to get married with a beer gut. I know how to get in shape, but I don’t know how to lose fat, gain muscle and do it healthy in just under four months. I am now seeking professional help on this matter. I contacted a local health and fitness center and got a personal trainer. Three days a week I do a private physical training session that is all about building and toning muscle. Two days a week I do a group fitness class led by a fitness expert that is all cardio work. One day a week I do nutritional counseling to make sure I am eating right with my work out plan. I am hopeful that taking all of these measures will ensure that I look good on my wedding day. I am not going to be wearing a swimsuit and flashing my belly around. However, I still would like to look slim for all the photographs and not look like I have been eating chips at my desk.

Radiant flooring is a must when living in cold climate

When you live your whole life in a chilly climate, you think you have seen every kind of system out there to keep yourself warm.

I have had all kinds of peculiar heating elements, from fireplaces, gas heating systems, and even a boiler at one point. I honestly thought I had our heating needs all under wrap, however I was soon to learn this was not the case. It started when my acquaintance down the street was telling almost everyone within earshot about her new radiant floors. Heated floors weren’t that popular and were new to our area so I knew very few people that bothered with them. My acquaintance was unintentionally causing our nearby HVAC device supplier to get a lot of business when she started inviting almost everyone over to her home to try out the radiant floors in her house. I didn’t go over to her place but a lot of my friends did and that is how word got back to me. As great as it sounded it suddenly became annoying when our friends wouldn’t shut up about it. They would come over to my place to spend time with me but talk the entire time about her radiant floors. I finally had enough and decided to see what was so great about it, but when I went over there I will confess I changed my mind very fast. The heated flooring made the home feel so warm and comfortable. It worked alongside her central heating and A/C plan and made the whole place nice and toasty. It was the warmest house I have been in, and most pressingly it kept the chill out, then now I needed one too.
