Happy Thursday friends~I can hardly believe it is already Thursday, where has the week gone? So I have to say I didn't go to the gym yesterday but did take Hunter on three walks, equaling about 2.5 miles or so. This morning, bright and early I went to the class, at my gym, I started on Tuesday. I have never done Curves but from my understanding, this class is formatted after them; we have eight stations and do four reps at each station. The reps last only 45 seconds each and the class is only 45 min. Today's focus was on legs and I thought "oh good, this should be o.k."; huh! Let me just state that other than walking, I haven't done any serious exercise for about 6-8 mos-doesn't paint a pretty picture, does it. Initially I thought that a gal can easily do reps for 45 seconds; let me tell you when you don't like the particular rep, it seems like forever. Today's class was tough, girls; there are two ladies that are at least 5-8 yrs older than I am and they stay for Pilates afterwards. Wow is all I can say. I'm hoping that my progress won't be too impeded next week when I only do the class once; I do plan on doing it here at home on Thursday though. So after I got home from the gym, Hunter and I went on our walk with our bff's; it was only about a mile today but, I think seriously, every little bit should help. I am being more careful about my food intake; you know I love to eat and so really trying to cut out the junk stuff-although there are Peanut M&M's in the house. A girl does need chocolate, doesn't she!
My goal in this exercise is firstly to get in better shape-especially before biking season and just to slow the aging process.
I hope you are having a great week, it is almost over for those who are working outside the home. This weekend is supposed to be bitter cold; I'm not thrilled because we start obedience training again-so I will just layer, layer layer.
Hugs to you! Noreen & Hunter
