What a snowy, wet day in Toronto! I hopped on the bus and made it to FITMOM in time to get a wicked work out. When I heard the wind blowing outside I had no idea what was waiting for us when we stepped out the door.
I can still feel the sensation of my thighs hard work. That it almost 6 hours later from todays class.
We did our regular warm up with the dumb bells and squats and my arms almost fell off.
Umm..yeah. I was using 3pd weights, LOL! But the way Andrea has you working them, wow! It really should be nothing for me to do after 5 weeks of working out with FITMOM. But Andrea has a way of motivating you and finding those little muscles that need waking up in not just the arms but EVERYWHERE!
I really like the feeling of my body aching after a work out. It's a good feeling not a bad feeling. As we were squatting and doing these crazy frog jumps well I did one row of these crazy jumps (no stress incontinence! Must be those planks she makes us do!) I actually jumped. Jumping is hard as you get older. Maybe it's just the +++ pounds of me but I did one row of jumping and then went into duck walks which is like squatting, back straight and waddling. Sound easy? Think again!
Then we were lunging and skipping with a lunge. Talk about getting your cardio started. I almost passed out but I was foolish and skipped breakfast. Thank god for modifications.
But as I passed the mirrors I was looking at myself and saw a slightly thinner me. As I looked at myself all red in the face and sweaty I said:
"You can do it! The pain is your body changing. Wake up muscles, WAKE UP!"
Today was a awesome work out. As hard as it was when it ended I thought, okay that wasn't so bad ;)
So the next step is my food journal and 40 days of FITMOM! Andrea warned me, I need to prepare. I say.
"BRING IT ON!"
