I know everyone is dying to know how my workouts are coming, right? Well, this a.m. I did Fitness Fanatics. My friend Brenda from Bootcamp, my regular venue, talked me into this once a month get bikini ready class that is 2 hrs. long. Barring a month long burning bush, I am done with bikini's, but it would be nice to put a suit on with my kids and not have to use an under girdle. Even still, I have to contend with spider veins. No chin ups for that. No matter how many cute emails I get or poems are written about aging gracefully wearing purple, there's only one image I can conjure up. My grandmother reading at the beach in her stretched out skirted bathing suit wearing impossibly large men's reading glasses from the 70's she probably got at a yard sale, her outstretched legs looking like an interstate highway map. I'm not knocking embracing old age...ok, I'm knockin' it. Anyway, it's a fact, accepting it or not is really irrelevant.
Back to class. I was hyperventilating thinking about an exercise class that would be 2 hours long. I envisioned 15 super fit women going cardio crazy yelling BRING IT ON! and all kinds of other ridiculous gym quips while I dragged by backside from one circuit to the next. Well, slap my pants if I didn't end up lovin' that class. There were women there at all stages of fitness getting after it and I found the time going by quickly. I was STARVING by the end, but I managed not to screech into the 1st donut place. I will probably not be able to get out of bed tomorrow, or get on the toilet, but come next month, sign me up sister!
Mood: 7, pretty consistently for the last 4 days. All of a sudden coming up with 100 ways to make money, scouring through blogs for creative inspiration, I have been almost manic. Except with the cooking and cleaning...uh, it's such a drag!
Stress: 0, not that the outside influence isn't there, I am just not taking the bait.
Energy: 7, I feel strong today (this week). I am in my Buffing Cycle, so this time of the month I need to be upping exercise, which is logical
Hunger: Average actual hunger, but I am always eating carbs in my mind that I am not actually ingesting.
Sleep: I have been tired this week. But I have been staying up late too and getting woken up by my son who has been sick. I'm actually starting to fade right now, and it's only 7:30 pm!
