I Should Stop Talking About the Gym So Much

But when every muscle I have is screaming at me - it is all I can think about.

I will keep going. Quitting is not an option but the thought comes to me every. single. day. I feel good about myself when I am done with a work out. This week was particularly good - yesterday one of the teachers said I was young. Now, most of the women in his class were a good 15 or 20 years older than me but it sill felt good to be called that.


After taking a crazy "combat" class (lots of kicking, punching and running around) the teacher - who knew I was new - came up to me and told me that I did a great job and that I was very coordinated. No one has EVER called me that before - quite the opposite in fact. I regularly trip over nothing, fall UP the stairs and walk into walls and doors. It makes me smile just to think about it - maybe they get paid by the number of return visitors and they know what to say to keep me coming.

You want to see uncordinated- I've had this inner-ear vertigo thing going on for 3 weeks now! As if I wasn't dizzy enough before!
I haven't driven a car in a month- a good way to save money by the way- but it's BORING!!! Have a great weekend! xoxo

Keep it up. Maybe if you keep blogging about it, I will feel guilty enough to go.

I came to say that I think DORK NITE is a fab plate.

I want to know what class you're going to that everyone else is 15-20 years older. Sign me up for it, because I want to look and feel young, too. I feel your pain about the gym. I've been going every day for the past few weeks, and I hurt and I'm exhausted. But I keep telling myself that there is no other option-no quick fix--and Kregg and I are going to Hawaii in about 7 weeks to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary--so I have a lot of work(outs) to do before then. Ugh!!
