Thursday's Group Power kicked butt! (My blogging slacked for a few days, lack of sleep will do that to ya!) Dave was gimpy, so it was just me that went. Yes, I went to Group Power by myself. I'm proud of myself for setting a plan and sticking to it. I've be going to the class for three weeks now, and I feel great! My body is finally adjusting to a regular activity schedule. I feel energetic and i'm starting to notice results. From being at not much activity to now being committed to an exercise class twice a week is such an improvement. I'm truly working on my New Year's Resolutions. Now I just have to keep it up and try and get to where I have more than just two days a week at the Court Club.

What's My Motivation Here?!

Ok, so I'm officially pooped! Dave and I walked to dinner last night. We walked round-trip about 3 miles. The 3 miles isn't what wore me out.... Group Power today did it!! We went to our regular class which meets Tuesdays and Thursday evenings from 5:40 to 6:40, with Liz. Liz is a great instructor, and over the last three classes the number of participants keeps growing. I upped my weights this week, and over did it just a little bit on the chest track. I made it through that track, but kept the weight up through the shoulders, and it was just too much for the shoulders track. I still have jello arms... I'll really be feeling it tomorrow!! Oh well, you live and learn. I figured out tonight that I even after I upped the weight for the warm-up and the leg tracks I can still go about another little bit more. Tonight I did a medium and small weight. I'll up that for Thursday.
I've really been thinking about going to one of the Group Kick classes... I just have to figure out where it'll fit into my schedule. Not sure if I'll make it to Group Kick this week, but I'll definitely try it out next week if I can.
Since I barely slept last night, darn tossing and turning, and after a very long, hot and sweaty day of working hard outside at work, then Group Power, I think I'm ready for bed. Until next time... "Squeeze!"

Getting Started

Ok, since before Erin's visit, she's been on my case about blogging... So this one's just for you Erin!
First things first... I just got home from dinner and shopping. Wooo hooo! Dave and I went to Famous Dave's BBQ. They just opened up here about two weeks ago, so it was super busy. We had to wait over an hour, but it was worth it. It was our first experience at Famous Dave's (even though I've been there once in NE with Erin). After dinner we made a mad dash through the rain and did some shopping at Walmart. Had to get a new movie (Fool's Gold) and workout accessories.
After the feast at Famous Dave's I definitely feel the need to get my butt to the gym. Almost a month ago now, Dave and I joined The Tri-City Court Club. Not long after we joined, Erin came to visit and she dragged my butt out of bed (early and on my days off from work no less) to try out Group Power, which I understand is very similar to her BodyPump class... Man we went twice during her visit, and those classes kicked my butt!! Fortunately though, Erin was just the motivation I needed to try a new class and get excited about working out. Since then, I've been dragging Dave to Group Power. We started going Tuesday and Thursday evening this last week. Both he and I are feeling the after-effects (sore muscles, but a good sore) and feeling some results. We both are feeling more energetic (thanks Erin :) ).
The plan for tomorrow is to visit the gym, and who knows what else... We shall see.
