I came home today, another day of feeling too big in my skin and certainly in my clothes. I had gone to the doctor with my husband, and we cheered that he had gained some weight since his recent illnesses. Another 9 lbs on him and ... wait for it ... we will weigh the same. I wanted to crawl under a rock.
Sat down at my computer and read that friend Jules has embarked on a life changing program with a significant goal. Impressive. Thought of a Facebook friend, Tracie, who has lost 38 lbs since her diagnosis with Type 2 diabetes by...moving more. Eating right.
Then a notice flashed up on Facebook that another friend had a mild stroke today. I panicked, called her phone and left a message, wondered what I could do. Nothing but pray, really.
Ah, 5:30 Jazzercise class, that was my plan anyway.
Then a notice showed on on Facebook that tonight's Personal Touch class was being taught by my all-time favorite instructor. I have a 10% off certificate for a 10 week PT session.
Jazzercise Personal Touch
Kick your workout up a notch! These small group weight training and body sculpting sessions are designed to improve strength and tone muscles. The personalized approach encourages exercise consistency and the attainment of fitness goals. Special attention to movement technique will help you get the most from your Jazzercise workouts.
I've done PT before... 45 lbs ago. For me, it's several notches up! and I find it similar to the Insanity workout, in that I generally think I am going to throw up before it's over. It requires a commitment to 5 regular Jazzercise classes plus 2 PT classes plus food logging on MyFitnessPal: every week.
Before I could think about it too much, I "took my foot in my hand" and went and did it.
And I told DH, he's going to have to carry me around for the next few weeks...but he's willing.
My friend who had the stroke? Is not overweight. But somehow the situation brought my excuses and denial into sharp focus, and I just can't wait any longer.
We'll keep ya posted.
