Yesterday I had an appointment with my trainer again. He is not happy with the way I am improving or should I say the lack of improvement in my cardio training. My resting heart beat is still way to high and therefore when I am working out it is much too high. Against his better judgement he started me on some weight training although not very much. But like I told him, I can't afford to pay for the gym and the gas to drive back and forth to the city every day just to ride the bike and walk the treadmill. I can understand where he is coming from but he also has to understand me too. So we did a compromise. He is concerned that without the proper cardio fitness I wouldn't be able to withstand the weight training and end up quitting, which is a possibility but there is a much bigger possibility that I would quit if I just continued doing the cardio. Some is better than none in my books. So I promised him that I would let him know if I start finding it to hard to keep up with the training, I doubt that will happen since he only has me on four machines and very low weights at that. The problem now is that my hours are increasing at work.. I should have known that would happen. I sit here bored to death all year with nothing to do and as soon as I find something to do they increase my shifts.. doesn't that just stand to reason!!!
This heat and humidity is incredible!! I roast at work and then come home and cook some more unless I stay downstairs with nothing to do. The windows upstairs in the computer room and the craft room are too small for air conditioners.. we thought we had found one that would fit but it was half and inch too wide. :( I think this weekend is going to be spent at the beach if I can find one close enough where you don't have to walk half way to the states to get out far enough to swim. :)
