Sometimes, I suck at this blogging thing

For starters, I have some great news to report. My eating has been relatively good during the past week and a half. I've made some great choices and have made some not-so-good choices. But all in all, I've done really well. And when I'm doing really well, sometimes I forget to blog.


So the last few days have been overcast, rainy and COLD here in Denver. It went from being in the 80s to being inthe 40s...and that's when I realized that I really had to change up my exercise. I ran last Saturday morning, but since then haven't done a thing.

So yesterday I was determined to get a run in. I packed my workout bag so that I could do it at lunch...only it was raining. So I thought that I would just go to the gym (you know that thing I pay $26 a month for??) and run on the treadmill. And then I thought (with dread) about how much NOT fun running on the treadmill is for me.

So I looked on the 24 Hour Fitness website and saw that there was a boxing class on Wednesday nights.

I walked in the room last night to see some SERIOUSLY skinny people but that didn't really register for me...because at 60 pounds overweight, I still feel like I'm a reasonably healthy person. I did GREAT in the class. Sure, my lunges and squats weren't as deep as others...and maybe my punches weren't as high up as the instructor would like. But I did everything as fast as my body would allow...and I feel great.

They have yoga classes on Saturday mornings and classes that involve cardio and weights other days of the week.

I think I'm actually looking forward to the winter - to taking classes inside when it's dreary and running in the sunshine when it's not.

It's going to be a great couple of months.

One reason I signed up for that fusion dance class. I'm also looking at Zumba. but have heard it's hard!!!

Still love my elliptical though.

I, too, have a more difficult time writing when I'm happy and things are going good. Suffering brings on all sorts of good tidbits to share.
