{back at it again}

Wow...has it really been over a month since I last posted? Yikes! I guess I kind of fell off the band wagon! It took me a month to loose 5 lbs and I think I gained it all back....augh....and the Thanksgiving feast didn't help either!
Anyway, I finally joined a gym and went to the turbo kickboxing class tonight. Have you ever tried Turbo Jam? Well, the class was like that, only the instructor was this teensy-tiny blonde girl who was super mellow before class, and I was like, "Great, this is going to be a breeze!" but once she turned on the music, she was moving around the room like a cockroach lit on fire with household chemicals! Seriously, she was insane! I can't dance, and I struggle following basic aerobic moves, so when you speed it up, and add all these funky moves, I struggle! I was laughing at myself the whole time, but I didn't give up! When everyone else went left, I went right. When you were supposed to punch 3 times and kick, I kicked and realized I was supposed to be punching, so I'd start punching, but then it was time to kick. It was nuts, but I had a blast, and although I know I'm going to be so sore tomorrow, I'm excited to jump back on the wagon and kick it into high gear!
This video shows just a little bit of what the class was like!
P.S. If any of you go to the rec center in South Jordan, email me and we can meet up at the class!

That video that chick is doing looks awesome, the only thing is I have tried doing videos at home and Michael end up laughing his head off at me. Congrats on going to the gym, one thing I have learned this past few months is if you go to the gym you will want to eat better. Once you stop going to the gym you eat like CRAP! Maybe that is just me, but good luck I am starting tomorrow..............

Hey, at least you're going back to the gym again! Kudos to you -- and for trying out a group class!Yay! I would be exactly like you and kicking when you're supposed to punch, vice versa ... That class sounds like a blast but I'm kind of scared to go to a class because I know I'm outta shape and would be panting for breath! I should just bite the bullet and do it! I love workout tapes like Taebo way better than that boring treadmill!

Ugh, I'm totally with you. I'll totally pay to go to a class with you one night. That actually sounds like fun. If it's anything like turbo jam, I'm sure I could figure it out. I've got that WHOLE freakin' DVD memorized.
Hmmm.. Still fat... no fair. LOL jk
