The last time I was at the dietician, she mentioned that while my weight loss is going well for the moment, there is going to come a point when I plateau (as we all know) and that will be when I need to change my exercise routine around. Now, while I am happy to go for a walk or get on my bike by myself, I'm not very good at doing circuits or anything like that.
K's friend won a package with a gym in Southport and they have a $55 3 week special which we were going to join - well K did join but it was the two weeks before A's birthday and I really didn't have the time to be fluffing around with PT sessions and going to a gym that is effectively 20min drive from home.
Then a few weeks ago, my SIL told me about a special at the gym which is only one road away from me - sign up during September, and they wave the $130 joining fee. And, if two of you join up, the second person gets it at a reduced rate - bonus !!!! You also get 7 days free trial.
Well last night I started my 7 day free trial. This morning I know that I have done something different to just going for a walk. But it's a good different. It's that ache in my muscles that tells me I have worked them in ways they haven't been worked for a while. It's a great feeling.
Last night I did a Body Conditioning class which was pretty much core work (although my feet and legs were a tad wobbly by the time I was finished that !). As K couldn't get there for that class (started 5.30) and only the 6.30 class, I stayed and did the Body Pump class with her. Well I definitely had a case of Elvis legs by the time I finished that. I don't know if I could say I actually enjoyed either of the classes but that may just be because they are both done to music, I didn't know what I was doing, I couldn't hear what the instructor was saying and my head was turned a lot of the time while I tried to watch what they were doing and copy them !!! Having said that, it did feel good.
Tonight I am off to the Body Tone class which I figure can't be too hard and then tomorrow I will tackle the spin class. There is a spin class tonight after the BT class but I don't think I will be able to handle a spin class tonight and tomorrow night so I will just leave it until tomorrow. K and I are going to sign up before she leaves for NZ so that we can get the special plus it will give me something to do in the evenings while I am on my own because they are both leaving me on Friday :(
Because it's Tuesday, it's time to join in with Jess from Essentially Jess for #IBOT.
Have the best day !
Are you exercising as much as you could ?
Have you got a plan in place
in order to fit into your
togs when summer gets here ?
Do you need to start now ?
