I had a whole lot of fun this month and I pushed myself, possibly, harder than I've ever pushed myself before.

I delved into classes, a form of exercise that I've previously shunned and I actually went to a step class this afternoon. There was a substitute teacher but I had no comparison because I'd never been to the original teacher's class. She (never caught her name) apologized for her lack of step instruction. We ended up doing quite a few jumping jacks as well as working with weights and a resistance band and we worked out so hard that we fogged up the windows. ;) I definitely dug the waddle move with the resistance band; we all looked like penguins, for sure.

If I only learned one thing this month, it's that class instructors love jumping jacks. And my other valuable lesson? Always keep Epsom salt on hand.


  1. I love the variety! I need to try those 10-minute solutions. And I want to hike. No time no hike.

  2. Yum Yucky,

    Definitely try a 10 Minute Solution. I really like the fitness ball one and the tone trouble zones. I got the dance situation from the library to give it a test run.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we all had some extra time?
