CHANGE IS GOOD!!!!!!!

It is important to know yourself in this fitness game. I KNOW that I can not do this alone. Meaning: I need classes to get the most from my workout. I have tried "going at it alone," since June and the results have not been pretty: decreased cardio capacity, increasing resting heart rate and blood sugar levels, decrease HDL. I just do not work as hard or as consistently as when I am in a class setting. Sure, I was taking a spin class 3 - 4 times per week but that was not enough. After scoping a ...
It is important to know yourself in this fitness game. I KNOW that I can not do this alone. Meaning: I need classes to get the most from my workout. I have tried "going at it alone," since June and the results have not been pretty: decreased cardio capacity, increasing resting heart rate and blood sugar levels, decrease HDL. I just do not work as hard or as consistently as when I am in a class setting. Sure, I was taking a spin class 3 - 4 times per week but that was not enough. After scoping a step class for 6 weeks, I finally took a deep breath and went in. GREAT CLASS!!! Was I able to do every step, NO but I modified and still got a good work out. At times the class was in front of the step and I was behind; I just laughed , turned around and kept going. I LOVED the class. It was great cardio and we did toning at the end. Def going back and def going to check the gym schedule to mix it up.
Change is def good for me!!!!
Next : kickboxing!!!!!!

Other Information:
"What is your secret to the weight loss, they all want to know; in a thousand different ways they wanted to know The Secret. And not one of them is ever prepared, truly prepared, to believe that it has nothing so much to do with chemicals , wacky diets and zippy mental tricks as with the most profound and sometimes heartrending process of removing, molecule by molecule, the very tough rubber that comprised the bottom of my training shoes. The more molecules that I remove , the more weight I lose; it is that simple"

Good morning, glad you enjoyed the spa visit. emoticon I have a couple of short races coming up, a couple of 5ks and a 4 mile race. About one a month until the half marathon is September. I understand about going overboard. I did a few days straight after I did the 15K without really giving my body a chance to rest and then I went to a TRX class one day and that was all she wrote. I was so sore and tired and achy, I had no choice but to take a rest day. Yep, we both have to learn when enough is enough! I'm really struggling right now, for some reason, the number on the scale refuses to move. I have been stuck at a plateau for months!! But I'm not going to give up! Have a great weekend!
