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"

I had to chuckle at your observation about "The Secret" being removing the rubber on the bottom of your training shoes molecule by molecule! I am going to enjoy thinking about that tomorrow when I work on that very project. And I am also inspired that your fitness level helped you recover more quickly from surgery. My father had a similar experience with healing from surgery when he was in his early 80's. He walked several miles almost daily, and it made such a difference. Anyways, thanks for the new thought nugget!

LOL @ the boots!! That's part of my one step at a time, one step a day theme! I plan on changing the background quite often with pics of my favorite shoes and boots! Have a great day!

Good morning, thanks for the compliment on my new page. I thought I would change it up. I'm thinking I might get into the habit of changing it every now and then. Maybe if I keep it fresh, I will keep my workouts and motivation fresh. We'll see. Have a Happy New Year! emoticon

Good morning, Happy December to you as well! I hope your December has gotten off to a better start than mine. I just have not been able to get motivated to get to the gym and my eating habits haven't been the greatest since Thanksgiving. I promised myself I would do better starting today. We'll see how that goes. Have a great weekend! emoticon
