YMCA Workouts, Continued....

Well, I am doing a lot at the Y.... today I did Zumba again and follwed up with a really good (that means hard..lol) class called Power Sculpt. We had all sorts of equipment.. a step bench, medicine ball, tube, heavy bar.... it was fun because she kept changing it up. That was good because just when I thought I could not do anymore she would change.... lol

I am beginning to see/feel some results. I have been working out most days and am trying for 4-5 cardios and 2-3 strength training classes a week. I am beginning to get to know some of the other ladies (and men) and really like all the variety. But I feel firmer and not so floppy.

The other day we were doing squats and the instructor said "Do you feel your rear flapping in the wind?" lol I thought YES! Though many ladies in there did not, I'm sure as some are in really great shape.

How are your workouts going? Loved hearing about your Dancing with the Stars, Maria!

I haven't done the DVD again - I'm finding it a struggle with dh sleeping in the room right next to the living room - but we did walk to the park, jump rope and bike ride this week...

Just do it when you can, Maria.
One thing I really like about flylady is the 'babysteps'. I can really relate to that.. I am so all or nothing, which is not good.

The time will come when you have room and space and time to do your workouts.... in the meantime you are finding some very creative ways! Good job!
