Catching up? Check out my last post where I shared one of my biggest struggles as of late.
When I posted on Sunday, my weekly goal was to: “Wake up everyday this week and get a workout in before work. I’m hoping that a solid week of workouts will make me feel sexy, because guess where I am going on December 27th?”
(In case the picture wasn’t a dead giveaway … New York City! I will surely fill you in on the highlights upon my return!)
Anyways, now that we’re approaching the end of the week, how did I do? Monday (lame excuse alert!), I had a lot of trouble tearing myself from under the covers, but I did manage to cram in 5 minutes of ab work before I hopped in the shower. Not what I was planning, but I have to admit that it was better than nothing.
Speaking of nothing, that is how much fitness I got in before work on Tuesday. I did, however, get some tap dancing in after work, so at least I got movin’. (More on this later. I teach dance, in case you didn’t know!)
But let’s talk about Wednesday! I woke up rearin’ to work out. I jumped out of bed, tossed on some workout clothes, packed a bag so that I could get ready after my workout, and headed to Jazzercise. I used to be a certified Jazzercise instructor, and it continues to be one of my absolute favorite workouts. Since moving to a new city, I haven’t been able to Jazz as much, and I miss it a lot. So much that I did a full class before work and then came back after work for two more hour-long classes. Overkill or dedication? I just couldn’t help myself!
Guess what else? I hit up Jazzercise after work today too. I am an absolute believer in finding a workout that works for you. Although I am sad that Jazzercise is no longer a part of my daily life, I am still grateful for the times when I can do it.
Now what I must remind myself is how rockin’ I felt (and continue to feel) after each of those workouts. My body hurts, but it hurts so good. Although I must admit that I still haven’t been eating the greatest (hello Christmas cookies!), getting a daily workout in really makes me feel so much better about myself.
Daily Goal: Zumba or Spin Class tomorrow morning!
