You may remember a few days ago (or was it a couple weeks?) I posted that I was committing myself to working out at the "Y" six days a week. Well, not only have I been doing that, but two days a week I'm taking DOUBLE classes, which comes out to a 1 hr 40 minute workout! I come out of the classes DRIPPING, which is a good feeling, because I know I'm burning calories. In fact, I'm burning somewhere around 1,000-1200 calories during my workout. I LOVE IT.
Well, I don't love the workout. In fact, I have to FORCE myself to go. During the workout I have to keep telling myself "this is good for me, it really is!"
And, I have to say, the results I'm seeing are great! There are a couple of exercises that I couldn't even BEGIN to do when I first started, and now I can do them.
There's another benefit too. For that time that I'm working out, my mind is completely engaged in the workout, and NOT what's happening at home. I mean, if I loose my concentration because I'm thinking about what I'm going to do with Angela in the afternoon, I'll fall flat on my face as I'm going "Around the world" on my step. There has already been more than once when I've just about fallen on my ass while doing an "L" step, and that was while I WAS concentrating. LOL
That, and I'm down 4 pounds in the last couple of weeks. Works for me!
