I will also let you know that for some reason I did not see the weightloss I have seen in the last 3 months but hey, that is part of the journey, right!? I still saw a good bit of weight loss but not nearly what I am used to. I have started to exercise a lot more than I have since high school which has been awesome. I am getting back into the mode I was in in high school. I used to LOVE workout out and playing golf every day in high school and now I am getting back into that frame of mind. I LOVE it! I haven't missed a day this week at the gym and I have done 2 2-a-day workouts this week too! Now don't get me wrong, it is not fun while I am doing it but the feeling afterwards of accomplishment and success is something that can't be compared to anything!
Yesterday, Shawn and I decided to go to a RPM (spin) class at Gold's. One of the class instructors is in our Sunday School class and we have been looking forward to trying one of his classes. We also have several friends that go to RPM classes and love it. I was nervous but excited yesterday morning not knowing what to expect. The other people in the class were so welcoming and friendly to Shawn and I and it made us feel at ease as soon as we came in the class. I used to be intimidated even thinking about going to a gym again or trying out a new class but what I have found is the complete opposite. The people that I have met have been so nice and very helpful! I honestly don't think I have ever worked out as hard as I did yesterday in the RPM class! Holy cow! About the second song in, I felt like I was going to throw up and I was POURING sweat. I am not a "sweat-er" unless I have done something for a long period of time but man I think I sweated every ounce of water I had in my body yesterday. Once we were about half way through the class I felt better and knew I could push it out to the end. In the beginning I kept thinking, "I will never do this again, this is awful" BUT by the end, I was ready to do it again! Shawn and I are pumped up for next Saturday's class. We are ready to rip our body up again! :)
I feel like this past month has been the first time I have felt adventurous to try out new things and I am loving it!
