I have been staying strong with working out during my lunch and it is a good thing. I would have never gotten the opportunity to take the classes offered.
I took a Power Class on Weds and let me tell you 440 calories later in 35 minutes I wanted my mama. The lady was tough and criticized my crunch, and push – up forms. She was just what I needed. You cannot tell me that I cannot do something. Trust me I take this as a challenge. Instant competition with myself. That was the best workout I have had in awhile. I showed a lot of enthusiasm. My heart rate reached 186!!!
Today, I took a Pilates class for the first time and it rocked! I got to stretch, work on my flexibility and concentrate on my core. It was amazing. I need to do it more often. Just taking the deep breaths and focusing on particular poses really energized me and relieved some stress! My knee has limited my flexibility on my right side and that used to be my most limber spot. I think a combination of this class and maybe a yoga class might help me rehabilitate my knee. It no longer aches and I have more flexibility but I prefer for it to go back to the flexibility it used to have.
Friday I am going back to Power Class lady’s class. To die. Well at least feel like it! LOL, and then, after work I am going to meet my sister to participate in an epic bike ride called critical mass. Every Friday at the end of the month, Hundreds of Houstonians come out to do what: Ride Bikes! It is different, it is cooky, and it is right up my alley when it comes to interesting fun. Well, I will blog about that when I have a moment!

Sounds fun! Pilates is such a great workout!
It was! I think I will add this to my list of favorite.
Lol, good luck in that power class! Sounds intense, but good. My kickboxing trainer is like that too, if you’re not doing things right and your form sucks….you will be doing it until you get it right and the rest of the class will carry on. She played me like that a few times, lol but I like it cause she’s like hardcore military style.
That’s good! It’s a great motivator!
