I took a new class today: kickboxing! A girl at my office takes classes at this little gym and spread the word that you can take your first class for free, so I got up this morning and went and kicked some butt!! I really enjoyed it! I paid for a month (thankfully, there's no contracts), since the lady that owns the studio has a special going on, but normally it is $70.00 (EEK!!!!!!) a month, so I probably won't be back after my month is up. I had so much fun, though, and it was really nice to be able to jump around and not have to worry about the neighbors pitching a fit. I've always been interested in boxing, so this definitely fills that need for me there! I got a free pair of gloves for "joining" so even if I don't continue here, I can always go find a kickboxing video or something like, strap them on and have some fun! I've been considering rejoining the local women's gym, just for the group classes. I miss group exercise!
After class I drove home and picked up hubby and we went to the grocery store, then I got some chili going in the crockpot. THEN I ran out to Target for some Allegra and The Hunger Games (SQUEE!!!!!!) and them Dick's to get new, heavier weights. I've been using 3 pound hand weights, but those are kind of a joke for me, and at the kickboxing studio my friend gave me 5 pounders, but I still wasn't getting the burn I want to, so I got some 8's. Coach Nicole's next Tone and Burn session for Bootcamp should be interesting!! O.o I need to upgrade to the 10 pound kettlebell, too, but they didn't have the brand I use,so I skipped it this time. I stopped by my mom's for a few minutes and see my niece and nephew, which is always good stuff.
*WHEW* Finally, I sits! It's fun getting to exercise in the morning, I run on high gear the rest of the day!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Have fun and stay active!! :)
