The Purchase

Today I finally bought a pair of 10kg adjustable dumbbells. Next up is a bench. But that's gonna have to wait a while. I thought of working out today. I mean, properly workout. But after buying those dumbbells I think I've had enough of a workout for the day.

Lugging a 10kg dumbbell in each hand from the first floor of a shopping complex to the parking lot which is situated at the other end of the premises is a tough job in itself. I was sweating even in the air-conditioned building. Then I had to lug those same dumbbells from the parking lot of my apartment to my cosy little unit. And no, I didn't take the lift. I took the stairs. But I live on the first floor. Hehehehehhe...

So that's it. My workout for the day. Lugging dumbbells. Tough work! Phew.....

Oh and in case you were wondering. Yes, the friendly staff at Fitness Concept did offer to help carry one of the dumbbells to the car. But I refused. Yeah, I can be stupid sometimes.

Aizan: Great buy. I think you bought the same one i got. Real Value for money.

Yeah, lugging it back to the car was painful even for me. But i never got an offer to carry it to the car. :P
i guess they only do that for female customers.

I got the same danged thing too! Now I can increase my weights in my workout. But I did not lug it by hand, I cheated. The sales people at Fitness Concept really don't know anything about fitness for women. They feel I'm too dainty and the cheek of the salesman said "they won't recommend anything above 5 lbs for women." I bought the dang thing on the spot, two in fact. The look on his face was priceless.

Michelle: Hahahaha... yeah I got that too when I first bought a pair of 10lbs dumbbells. The sales guy asked me "miss... tak berat sgt ke?"

The next time I visited FC I bought the pair of 10kg dumbbells. He didn't say a word. Just packed them up and smiled.
