i just finished another 40 minutes on the dreaded elliptical. it does get easier the more days i do it.
i was just wondering what you think about when you are exercising. do you concentrate on your muscles and the movement of the workout? perhaps you listen to music and just think about the lyrics. do you watch a tv program and zone out to that? do you play over experiences or problem solve? or maybe you do what i do and go into an exercise "trance" with fantasies.
my fantasies sometimes consist of me all firm and fit in a swim suit (usually a modest one piece) on the beaches of Aruba (where i am going in april). or me shopping for a super cute dress that shows off my fabulous body. but MOST of my exercise fantasies are about me winning an obscene amount of money in the lottery and how i would spend it.
today was a winning lottery day and i took the whole family to the Nick Hotel in Florida. I also flew down Preppygirl, Galoot and the kiddies. We stayed in the most awesome 3 bedroom suite where the walls were decked out with Jimmy Neutron. We played on the water slides all week.
Sometime after 20 minutes of gliding, I bought some property and designed myself a new house. It even has a 3 season room with cat doors and a long screened in tunnel around the garden for the cats to go "outside" without being able to run away or get attacked by wild animals. I included a theater room and my own gym so I don't have to go out in the snow to torture myself on this machine.
After about 35 minutes and 3.49 miles, I decided that if I won that much money I would just go to a plastic surgeon for some lipo and get those weekly colonics that celebrities get.
