Stepping Up

I did BodyStep for the first time in over 3 years yesterday.  Well - 35 minutes of an hour long class.  I then took BodyFlow for an hour. 

Initially I wasn't going to go to BodyStep or Shbam or any class that makes me fully aware of how big I am.  I mean I feel it in BodyFlow, but it's not my belly jiggling around at all!  I'm not sure what changed in my brain, but I just decided to DO IT.  When I initially starting blogging years ago, one of the things that I tried to focus on was NOT worrying about what other people thought.  If I sweat a lot, SO WHAT! If my face turns as red as a beat, SO WHAT!  If it's a little harder for me to do things, SO WHAT!  The point is that I'm doing it.  It's calories burnt, muscles gained. 

The truth is my knees really hurt by the end of the day after that.  But I hadn't done it in so long, so shouldn't I have expected as much?   I felt better today.  And I went to BodyPump.  It would be so easy to just say "I hurt" and not go.  But that's a slippery slope.

I've been on a plateau lately and it's frustrating and I'm adding things in to try to jolt my body into losing again.   But overall I'm doing well, continuing to move forward.

  1. I LOVED my Body Pump class. I felt so strong after finishing it. So wish my current gym offered it.
