Survived stregnth and abs today and feel some soreness in my shoulders and back. It is a good pain. I wanted to mention how I commited myself to changing my life. One day I decided to check out a local gym in town that had a pool. I had researched the gym and saw they offered a water aerobic class at 9 in the morning. I decided to go watch and see what I thought about it. I liked what I saw and on the spot signed up for a 2 year contract. I paid the full amount that day and knew that I had to prove to my hubby that it was going to be worth that big expense. I had to commit big and I had a lot of work ahead of me. I did the water aerobic class for a few months going everyday. In that time I became friends with many of the ladies in that class and a couple of us dared each other to try Zumba. We tried it and we liked it. We were slower than the young girls, always out of step, but we had a lot of good laughs on ourselves. I was told many times by others that joined that class that when they saw us in there they were brave enough to come in too. I have made a lot of friends. If I could give a word of advice on the gym. If you want to join a gym then investigate. Go watch. Try a class or two. Talk to the members. It is a huge expense and usually a huge time commitment. It is a different enviroment but if you focus on you then the other stuff is pushed aside. Many city recreation centers offer the same type of classes. Start looking into the options and try them. I never thought I would enjoy zumba, or step, or stregnth and abs. Find activity you like and jump in. I will never be perfect at zumba or even be able to dance the full hour but I can have a lot of fun trying.
