I'm a Class girl

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Ok I'm hooked on the gym...infact I kinda feel like I'm becoming obsessed. I plan my day's around the classes I want to take. I actually cried last weekend when a scheduling conflict happened and I missed the class I wanted. Our gym has an AWESOME kids club so I have to plan during those hours. Last friday I did my first Zumba class and it was amazing I seriously looked forward to this friday so I could do it again. Sunday I spent several hours at the gym on the elipcical, learning how to use the gym machines and swimming. It felt amazing to have some 1:1 time with my husband during this time (mom was down and watched the boys). Monday I took a water aerobics class and had so much fun I almost drown from laughing so hard. I felt like bambi on the ice (water is harder to maneuver than it looks) and I named my noodle Chicken get it...Chicken Noodle ha ha yeah I know but it was fun. Tuesday and wednesday's aren't working in my schedule right now so on thursday I was going to go swim but met with a personal trainer instead. And this is where my "Ah-ha" moment happened. I know that I'm very overweight, but I had no idea how bad it is. I know what my weight is and that's what I've been focusing on but I had NO clue that my BMI was soooooo bad. I figured I would be 30 something% but I'm over 41%. At that point I realized that it's not about being happy with the way I look, I have to get rid of this weight and fat to live! It is now a matter of life and death to me. And then that brings me back to Friday, I spent all week looking forward to this night. I was even worried the gym would be closed and I would miss it. But I went to Zumba and I worked even harder than I did last week but this time I did the treadmill for 10 min, and did my shoulder workout the PT put together for me and then I worked my bootay off. This morning I went to a belly dancing class and had a blast. I think as long as there are several fun classes offered I'm going to be there.
