Today I am really grateful for my brother-in-law, Dan. With Michael home from school this week, it’s been a little bit of a challenge to find two hours of alone time to exercise. This morning, Dan volunteered to take Michael to the pool so I could do a 4 mile DVD. I really appreciated that! And, it was great to get the first hour of exercise completed early.The second hour of exercise was even better, though. I went to the gym for my favorite yoga class. All the classes are good, but this one, I can do about 90% of the workout. (The other yoga classes I can manage 60 and 75% respectively. Yet, I still love them and look forward to going.) And the instructor really makes sure that anyone who needs to modify a pose knows how to do it. I really appreciate that. So, it was definitely a challenging workout, but it felt so good at the same time. I love the feeling of having all my muscles working, and really love the feeling of deep relaxation at the end.
I am still struggling to understand how much I have bonded with the gym. Anyone who knows me knows that I have always feared the gym, and avoided it at all costs. Now, I find myself looking forward to going to the classes, and really enjoying them. I don’t really think that I have changed that much over the years, so I am guessing that I have found a great match for me.And, as I have been saying all week, tomorrow is the six week mark. I am beyond excited. I cannot wait to get on the scale tomorrow, and I am even more excited about the pictures. Dan has volunteered to get Michael in the morning so I can go to an early stretch class followed by an intervals class. Then, it will be picture and update time. Stay tuned!
