I did it!!

Monday, March 19, 2012

So I had posted that I was planning to go to a kickboxing class during my lunch hour today and to please keep me accountable. Well, I did it!! I was a little nervous because it was my first time actually being able to get into my work gym facility AND it was my first try at kickboxing, but it all turned out GREAT! My badge finally worked and I was able to go right on in, change out of my work clothes and into my workOUT clothes and went into the group exercise room. I was a little thrown off, though, because the trainer decided that todayís class was going to be a circuit training type class, and she had stations set up and we went through all of them once for 45 seconds and then again for 30 seconds. I was doing exercises I havenít done in foreverÖsome I hadnít done EVER! There were kickboxing moves at some of the stations, but they were mixed in with burpees, mountain climbers, leg smashes, push ups, jumping jacks, stuff like that. I enjoyed the time and the people in there were nice and the trainer is nice and encouraging, too. And there werenít a TON of people in there like at the gym I go to with the hubs, so I liked that part of it, too. Anyways, they said that next week would be a more ďnormalĒ kickboxing class, but I didnít mind the circuit training so much! It was something different for them, too!!

Iím glad I got this workout out of the way because like I blogged before, the most difficult thing for me to overcome sometimes is the mental aspect of all this. So now that I have actually gone to the gym once, the ďfirst timeĒ obstacle is out of the way and I best better be getting in there more often!!

So tomorrow I have Jury Duty. UGH. I was actually kinda excited about it at first and have been practicing by yelling ďGUILTYĒ every time I see a crime story on the news, but now that itís actually here Iím just like blah. So I got summoned for jury duty for the county tomorrow and last week I got a summons for the city municipal court next month! Man, I feel popular, but not in a good way! LOL! This is my first time to serve jury duty, so Iím interested to see how that process will go.

My mother-in-law is in town for my stepsonís spring break. Iíve been coming into the office during the week, so sheís not so in my face. Sheís been helping with cleaning up and making dinners and things like that, and itís nice to have someone else around to hang out with/talk to. Donít get me wrong, I love my hubs, but when all he wants to do is lay around on the couch on Sundays and watch golf (BORING!!), getting the chance to play Skip Bo instead is much appreciated! Sometimes when Iíve been bored on the weekend Iíve asked my hubs if he wants to play a game and he always says no. It is starting to bother meÖbut that might be a different blog for a different dayÖ

Alright, thatís all for now. The Starfish team is off to a GREAT start with the Spring 5% ChallengeÖweíre moving and drinking our water and getting to know each other and all that good stuff!! Letís keep up the great work, team!!

    Oh, I wish we lived closer together. I would so play games with you. I belong to a game site called Pogo. They have tons of games, like Scrabble, and Yatzhee, and Monopoly, and card games like Hearts, Spades, and Euchre (my fav!). I play on there a lot in the evenings when my hubs has already gone to bed, and there's nothing on tv. You should check it out. You can play on the site without being a member, but it is a totally different experience if you are a member. It is 39.99 for the year, and I have made some wonderful friends on there...just like here! Check it out, and let me know. I will come play with you. If you check it out, and want to try playing something, let me know, and I will sparkmail you my "name" on Pogo, and I can add you as a "friend" there also.

    AWESOME! Kickboxing is definitely on my list of things to try. Thanks for helping move the starfish closer to Singapore by doing a lunchbreak class! Go you!

    "Enjoy" jury duty tomorrow. At least it will be a new experience.
