Once again the time got away from me . . . and honestly, I should be in bed already, but here I sit, blogging.
Yesterday was awesome! I went to the Pilates class at the gym. Still not so crazy about Pilates, but it was DEFINITELY challenging! The last Pilates class I did (about 9 years ago) was so easy, that it was kind of like non-weighted arm raises--no challenge. This class was definitely a challenge! There were a couple of moves I was just unable to do (that was hard for a competitive girl like me to accept). I felt like jello when I left!
Then, there was Zumba in the evening with my daughter. We both agree that we prefer instructor R to instructor A, but we still had a good time shakin' our groove things. The teacher immediately recognized in my daughter's movements that she was a dancer (GO MADDIEPOPPET!). I was so proud. :)
Today was a new day. I did my first ever Yoga class. I wasn't overly fond of the instructor. I had a cushy mat set out under my Yoga mat, because the floor hurts my hips on some of the moves. She promptly told me, "You don't need that." Ugh--and guess what? I DID need it. Next time she tells me that, I'll just smile and nod.
But this class was challenging also. I did all but about 3 of the poses. One of those poses, even the instructor never quite mastered. Only 2 people in the class did. :D I'll be feeling this class tomorrow, I'm sure. Especially in my arms. We did Downward Facing Dog and 3 Legged Dog for what seemed like forever! Doing 3 Legged Dog and going into a pushup was one of the poses I couldn't do. 3 Legged Dog was challenging in itself for me without throwing a pushup in there. LOL. I have very little arm strength.
I was going to do the next class, but I got the times mixed up. Usually the afternoon class starts at 4:30pm, but apparently on Fridays, it's 12:15pm. So, I turned on Netflix and did Crunch Video CardioSalsa. It was okay. Fun in a lot of parts, but seriously complicated and didn't flow well in others. But I was still pretty sweaty when I was done. Not Zumba sweaty, but nothing but Zumba makes me that sweaty. 30 minutes of CardioSalsa.
If all goes well, POOL DAY TOMORROW!!!
Have a pleasant evening, folks!
Oh, and PS--I finally got to see Final Destination 5 tonight!!! AWESOME!!! BEST ONE YET!!!
