It has been a crazy busy week ladies and it’s only going to get busier! With my daughter starting school next week, that means we’re back to our ‘regular schedule’ but it’ll be interesting to see how this works with me going to the gym two nights a week. (That’s about all I have time for right now.) She and her brother go with me and go to the play area they have at my gym so they love going as much as I do. Yes. I said it. I love going to the gym. Wish I could go more. I take a Group Power class which is weightlifting to music and is instructor led. I really, truly enjoy it. This is coming from someone who has never worked out or played sports in her life. Unless leisurely playing volleyball counts. I also walk pretty fast – GOT TO to get those deals! 😉
Since I got on the subject – believe me, I never have what I write here planned. Just the outfit. I just let whatever is on my mind at the time I post get itself out. Anyway, since I got on the subject – I’ve been going to the gym since February of this year and it’s been great! I go twice a week, sometimes three if my schedule allows but I feel motivated to go because I’ve seen AMAZING results with weightlifting. Plus the classroom and instructor setting is exactly what a girl like me needs. Before I joined the class, my husband (who is familiar with the gym and sports thing) was ‘training’ me. Although he was helpful and patient with me, it was too slow paced for me because he would tell me to do something, I’d do it, then he’d have to stop what he was doing when I finished to talk me through the next circuit. He was SO patient with me which I love him even more for, but I felt bad interrupting his workout as well as not knowing what would be next. So I decided to take the Group Power class. Loved it from day one. Of course, I felt like I had been hit by a bus and then it backed up and rolled over me again and again but that only lasted a week.
Before I took the class, I had tried running on my own (several times but they never lasted long). I worked out at our gym at work but then I just felt like it was WORK. I even did yoga via P90X. All those things I tried failed for me because eventually I would say, “Well, I’ll just wait another ten minutes before I start.” Ten minutes turned to fifteen to thirty until finally I just went to bed without working out. With the scheduled class settings, I know if I’m not there when I’m suppose to be, it’s over. And for some reason, that motivates me to go work out. That, and the physical results I’ve seen!
