Work out was great.

Shawn and I started attending Cardio Kickboxing classes last week. He met the instructor when he was getting his company's security license. Sgt. Jones is a State Police Sargent. We were invited to check out the class. Last Wednesday we decided to go. We got our gloves (required) and found the location. We paid our fee and off we went. I knew I was out of shape, but man, this man had me huffing and puffing after about 20 mins. I had to take a few breaks during the hour session, but made it through.

The next day I was not sore. I felt like my muscles were loose and I could move around easier. I kept up the cardio, kind of, for the rest of the week. I made it a point to move while at home doing chores. I shoveled snow for 6 hours. I took a brisk walk through the mall. And I started thinking about what I was eating, not just shoveling food in my mouth - trying to make better choices.

Yesterday I jumped on the scale and I have lost 5 lbs this week alone. YIPPEE. I have a goal to loose 80 lbs this year. I'm on my way. Sgt. Jones started it, but I kept it going. I was shocked to see that I had lost so much, not thinking I had done that much to lose weight.

So, today I went to the class without Shawn (he had to work). I did pretty good. I only had to take 2 breaks this time. One was because I had taken in too much water and felt sick. The other was to take a puff from my inhaler - big mistake. It made me sick. I didn't do all the exercises exactly like he wanted going at my own pace, but I hung in there. I made it through the session huffing and puffing again.

It took me almost 3 hours after the workout to stop sweating. Man it was a good feeling to be able to work out like that. I am really enjoying the lessons.  I hope that I can keep them up.

I invited the kids to go with us when they are home. Nate and Naina are all for it. Olivia said that she does not want to work out, but agreed to go with us and watch. I am hoping she changes her mind.

I am going to try and attend the Sunday morning session. Working out like that two times a week should be good for us. I know that I feel good about myself and actually went back. I didn't make excuses why I couldn't go and actually seemed excited to go. I hope I can keep this up.

So I'm off to bed. This old gal is tired tonight.
