Ok, I admit, the only reason I pushed my way to the gym tonight was because I knew the mess I made when I ate those 3 slices of pizza at work today...WITH the wonderful tasting Cinnamon sticks.. They were soooo good by the way.. but I knew I had just made a huge mistake and the only way to fix it was to do some sort of workout.. so even with the threat of danger in the weather under a tornado watch I pushed myself and my 5 and 6 year old out to that gym.. Yup, I call that some type of dedication.. Normally, if I look out the window and hear thunder the way I did today, I would say... Nah! Maybe tomorrow, and try my best to move around as much as I can inside.. I also could have waited until later.. to go to the gym.. but there was a kickboxing class I really wanted to take for the first time ever in a group setting.. Ya'll know I live for the sessions.. I did the cycling twice and loved it but the truth is with so much available why get stuck on one thing.. Nah, I'm going to work my way around this gym and get all my money worth.. Before it's all said and done I want to skillfully know how to use everything in that place just as if I were a trainer.. That's what I'm talking about..
I want to be like the trainers, in it so long, so dedicated that people who come there think I'm the instructor... I have tried so far, spinning class, aqua fit in the pool, step aerobics and I still want to hit that pilates and yoga and zumba, body works and hip hop class.. Yes, I am determined to make it happen!
There is way too much available.. I want to learn to swim so one day a week I can hit that pool... Yup, I got an agenda and I will make it happen... mark my words..
Tonight I felt extra tired but I got out and went anyway. I got a new app on my phone called "My fitness pal" and I can log in my food as I eat, even scan it in.. this app is so cool....but it also lets me know when I've pushed the ball and it's time to slow down on the food for the day!
This afternoon when I walked out of that gym I felt like at least I went and had worked off some of the pizza... hopefully, but I had eaten a honey bun before I left and also cereal when I got home.. so I can say my eating is not matching the way it should.. I need more motivation in that area to sit some of the food down.. but I'm taking baby steps one step at a time and thank God it makes me feel a little better about myself every step of the way!
