We used this lovely tiny torture tool in body sculpting class on Tuesday. We use it all the time, but we used it in a different way on Tuesday. By yesterday afternoon, both my sister and I had some serious quad pain, right leg. Funny how we exercised both legs the same, but both of us have a sore right leg.
Anyhow, we totally ditched kickboxing class last night because we were both so sore, that's really not like either one of us to ditch, but we were REALLY sore. After dinner, we were bth feeling so guilty about cutting class, like a kid skipping school, we decided we were going for a walk, try to stretch it out. That was the longest 2 miles of my life last night, we were both hobbling a bit.
This morning we decided to go for our usual run, and it was the thought that counts in this situation, we were both very slow and couldn't even jog, but I think we are on the upside of the pain now, hopefully by tomorrow a.m. we will be as good as new.
Amazing that a tiny tool can inflict torture, haha, now I know why our teacher calls it the "Band of Pain" , lol.

I had enough calories left over for a nice juicy hamburger, I haven't had a greasy burger in forever so I decided what can it hurt since it's in my calorie range.
BIG MISTAKE, my belly hurt all night - so lesson learned.....
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. No more burgers for me, my body has become too healthy for grease.

I have always considered back to school time as my new year. It's a time when the pace of life slows down, we settle in waiting on the cooler weather, a time for me to renew my goals, and settle back into the routine. I just love this time of year.
So for the next two months, I'm going to focus on speeding up the running and continue with all my cardio/ST classes and just see what i can accomplish in two months. I have a 5K race on Sept. 25th as a trial run for my 10K.
My goal weight is SLOWLY approaching, yeah, I have set an official date of October 31 to be at my goal weight of losing 100 POUNDS - we will run our 10K race on Oct. 30th. and then gonna start P90X in November. Hopefully will be getting pretty buff by Christmas.
I just love this time of year: Love the cooler weather, the leaves changing colors, Friday night high school football games, motorcycling riding on a crisp morning, NFL Sundays and wearing my favorites hoodies and NFL jerseys. Looking forward to the next few months.
Happy New Year everyone.

Yesterday I was off all day, went shopping, and to do some power lifting at the gym, and rode stationary bike on the mountain climbing setting, sheesh that was tough, chilled out and watched a movie.
Saturday a.m. - couldn't wait to do a weigh in until Monday, so I stepped on it and SHO NUFF, one more pound gone - only ten to go.
Completed a 8 mile run this morning with my sister and then came home for a 25 minute yoga DVD. Now off to get a hair cutt, spend some Kohl's cash and who knows what else I'll get into today, bet it's not gonna be any more running today.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far, I still have three more days off - YEAH for a Holiday.

We started a new round of kickboxing last night in class (TurboJam 42). I can totally say I was lost most of the time, but I wasn't alone, everyone was lost. It's hard to learn a new routine, heck, I just got pretty good at the last one and now she changed it on us. So last night was a big learning curve, so I didn't really feel like I got too great of a workout, since most of the time I was looking like an idiot, waving my arms around wildly, and then just stopping and staring, scratching my head, saying, huh?
Oh well, at least I know next week will be better, I can at least practice the new moves before next time.
The AB class was pretty good last night, I didn't fall off my BOSU at all (and yes, this is so funny to see my big behind roll right off, I'm not really good with balance yet, this is a new torture device I'm learning). Hopefully I will be able to master it, I've at least improved from last week, I could stand up on it without falling off and that's quite an accomplishment.
I had to laugh at myself last night, feeling like a rolly-polly on the bosu and looking like a deranged idiot during kickboxing.
Glad I can take things lightly and laugh at myself, it's good to laugh. Can you laugh at yourself?
