So excited about fantastic weather forecast today, gonna be great for a motorcycle ride and some outdoor cardio tonight, that will be the highlights of my day. Then the dreaded evening comes with a trip to the mall with my teenager to go bikini shopping - no, the bikini is definitely not for me . I love shopping with my daughter, but bathing suit shopping is definitely not at the top of my list of fun things to do - she will have to try on 50 to find 1 (maybe) that fits. I have suggested maybe trying a different style of bathing suit instead of a bikini, but she quickly snapped and said... "Mom, you don't understand, I have to wear a bikini, I'm a teenager". Oh, excuse me, I stand corrected. Hopefully the mall trip will be productive, quick and painless - wish me luck.

I am still sore from my Saturday Kettlebell Class - that's three days of down time. Just think of all the exercises I could have been doing during those three days of recooping. Kettlebells is not the right class for me, it was fun while it lasted, but NOPE, not gonna do it again.
One class + 3 days recovery = NOT WORTH IT.

Went to kettlebell class on Saturday morning. Oh my goodness, it was intense. I consider myself to be in pretty good shape, but after that, I am rethinking that. I used muscles I didn't even know I had and today (two days later) my thighs hurt so bad I can hardly stand up, but the worst part is trying to sit down from a standing position - OOUUCCHH, I have been doing a lot of moaning and groaning trying to sit (ok, everyone stop laughing). Overall, I guess I would rate the program itself at a 10, it targets different muscle groups and works cardio into the workout too, however, not sure this is the right program for me, even though they guarantee quick results. Today I am going to try to work those sore muscles with a little walking, and yes people, even walking is difficult ( I said quit laughing). Very undecided if I am gonna try it again.

Started day at 5:00 a.m. - laundry done, dishes done, kitchen cleaned, 2 mile walk with SP friend, on my way to Kettle bell class, shower, tan, Bridal shower - all this before 2 p,m.
Gas station stop - home - cook dinner then spend evening helping my daughter finish her fashion marketing project for school on Monday - oh yeah, chase silly puppy around house in between all that fun stuff. Sheesh - no rest for the weary today. Hope everyone is having a great day.

Got a new big girl bike yesterday. 2009 Honda Shadow Spirit 750. I took my expert negotiator with me to the dealer and boy did she get me a deal (thanks Teresa). I am so excited. A whole lot more power than the Rebel with the lawn mower engine, but no worries, I'm conservative. It's gonna take a while to get used to it, it sure handles different than the Rebel, turning is alot harder, but gonna take it to the school parking lot this weekend and practice those tight turns. Didn't ride to work today, RAIN, yuck.
I named her Zilla cuz she's big and bossy - she's weighs 536 pounds (rebel was only 331 pounds)- she's got a windshield, sissy bar, luggage rack. Saddle bags being installed on Monday for all my retail treasures. Oh, and I have to put the fringe on the handle bars and my lady rider bell on. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Give me a couple weeks and I will be ready to take on a passenger.
Can you tell I'm tickled pink?
