Then, this afternoon, we took Michael bowling. It was a lot of fun to just hang out and bowl as a family. It’s not something that we get a chance to do very often. And, I even got a couple strikes. We only played one game because Michael got tired, but it was still nice.But, the very best part came this evening when I visited a local gym. Every time we come to visit, we pass a place called Hazleton Health and Wellness Center. The building looked a lot like the gym I go to at home, so I was thinking it would be a good place to visit. I looked them up online and then called to ask about guest passes. They said the first visit was free, and after that, it was ten dollars a day, or six dollars to take a class. Very reasonable!
But, what I was so excited about is that they had a recumbent stepper, like I see all the time on the Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition show. I’ve always been curious about the machine, but didn’t think I’d ever get a chance to try one out. The lady who checked me in to the center helped me set the machine up and made sure I was doing everything right. So, for thirty minutes, I got to pretend I was actually on the show and doing the workout in my living room. Yes, I have a vivid imagination! But, it really was fun to try it out!Then, I used their recumbent bike for another half hour. It was really comfortable, and even had arm rests with heart rate monitors built in. I don’t think I’ve had so much fun working out on cardio equipment. Plus, everyone was really nice. When I had questions about coming back, or the class schedule, they took their time and answered all my questions. Even though I was just visiting, they made me feel welcome, and I appreciate that!
This was definitely another great day. Tomorrow will be a rest day, but not really. We are taking Michael to an amusement park, so I am sure that I’ll be getting in a ton of walking. It should be fun. I just hope that all this exercise will pay off and I’ll be able to keep up tomorrow!
