What a morning! Grace Kelly and I opened up the rec center this morning! It opens at 8 on Saturdays so we met up first thing to run through the “Kyle” circuit program. We warmed up on the elliptical and got started. It took no time at all to work up that wonderful “glisten” It seemed more difficult today, but I don’t know if that had anything to do with my late night run last night. Anyhow, we ran through the circuit program twice, and then cooled down by stretching. Definitely a good workout, and I’m sure we looked fabulous lifting our weight in unison side by side. lol
But then it was time for zumba! OMG!!! The first five minutes were excruciating! I honestly did not think I would make it through. I started thinking that maybe it was a little ambitious to think we could do the circuit and zumba in one day. After the third song, Kelly and I exchanged what I consider to be a what-the-hell-are-we-doing look while getting a sip of water. But we kept going and started to have some fun and getting into the music. Before we knew it the hour had gone by, and we were still alive and looking fabulous-well maybe… At least we were alive.
It was a great and challenging day at the gym, but it made me wonder how much we are really capable of. I think in general we stop short of what we can do, at least I think I do. But these last couple of weeks, I’ve been pushing myself-even if just a little at a time.
Hmmm…Maybe I’ll try jumping jacks.
Or maybe I’ll give it a couple more weeks.
I have about an hour before everyone comes home. They are out watching the Justin Beiber movie. I am picturing my husband dancing in the aisles since I know he is just thrilled to be there. =) I’m sure this image will make climbing the stairs just a little easier, and knowing he’s willing to be there with our little one-well that’s fabulous!
