Step Class

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

It's been over a year since I've been to a step aerobics class. I really enjoyed it but the timing was not good for me. Now there is a class that I can do at Fitness USA but I can only do it once a week. I figure that is better than nothing, and it would be a great exercise to do in between my couch to 5k running sessions. Today will be the first session for me.

Last night I went to the gym and I stayed there a record 2 hours! I left feeling very good. Drained but very good. I'm going to start getting cozy with the bench press. That area is always deserted when I am there. Women do not seem to want to try bench pressing. For now I can only bench press a whopping 10 pounds, but everyone needs to start somewhere!

    I think it's great for girls to lift weights!!! I have not been as good about it in the past two years, but I used to work out my back to keep my posture good and keep me from getting slumped over, and chest press/pushups to make my boobs look bigger! haha keep up the good work you're doing great!

    I am glad to hear that you are looking forward to your class. I am sure you are going to do great in it. As for the weight you are doing on the bench press, it may seem small, but you always want to start off small and then go up from there.
    One more thing. I love you so very much and you are such an inspiration to me when it comes to working out.

    I'd like to try a step glass someday! I love the bench press now that I know how to use it. I feel strong even if I am only lifting a little bit! You go girl!
