My exciting fitness news!

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I love sparkpeople, and I love blogging, but since I've been in maintenance, I don't do it very much. There doesn't seem to be as much to say; I bounce around two pounds in each direction, but I don't stress about it too much.

This week, however, I have something NEW to report, and it is BIG!!!


This Sunday, I'm going to become a certified TurboKick instructor!!!!! I'll probably never teach a class, but that isn't the point. I want more workout videos from Chalene Johnson (because I lOVE her!!!) and by taking the 8 hour class, and passing both the written and the practical exams, I can purchase new workouts regularly.

I've only done one turbokick class in a club, because I use videos and do it at home exclusively, so this is a big deal. I have to punch and kick and get my sweat on in front of a ton of strangers in a town I don't live in. Then I have to get evaluated... wait, maybe I don't want to go.

Just kidding! I'm totally doing this thing!

When I started doing the turbo jam/fire videos and visiting sparkpeople, I was overweight, and could barely do the moves. I didn't own a sportsbra, and I had converse lowtops as my only athletic shoes. Less than two years later, I'm maintaining a healthy weight, and I can kick and jump like a crazy person. I'm about to add certified instructor of my favorite workout to that list.

I'm pretty pleased.

Please send power vibes my way this Sunday. I've never worked out for so many hours straight, and I am going to need my sparkpeeps behind me!
