Nothing to Write Home About (141.8)

Last week was just that. I missed two planned workouts. Another one - I started very late (around 11:30pm) and was so tired - I couldn't give it my all. I ate three lunches "off plan" (went out with co-workers - when lunch was brought or was to be purchased from the cafe). Even so...I managed to eat breakfast most days and tracked - staying around 1500 calories everyday. But...I managed to see numbers I haven't seen in 2 months!

Last week I was supposed to be turning up things up a notch...But, honestly, I was tired and a bit overwhelmed..

So...This week! I am working harder. I signed up for some classes at Pole Worx KC. They have kick booty bootcamp, pilates/yoga mix, zumba, barliates, belly dance, chardance, and of course, pole dancing. I'll add that to my Zumba classes and weight lifting. I wasn't all that impressed with kick booty bootcamp yesterday but I was sore today! I tried pilates/yoga mix today....I've never taken yoga before...I thought the class was a bit slow at times...but there was lots of good stretching and I know that's so important for my knee so I'll keep at it. Will keep closely counting calories.

I signed up for a months worth of classes. I just needed some variety to shake up my workout...I'm not sure what I'm gonna do once we hit the new year. I'd love to join URBAN HIIT FITT workout challenge - if its affordable...but they are a bit of a drive from work and the house. So, we'll see.....

18 days to go!

Your classes sound so fun! Is barliates a Pilates class with a pole? Have a good week!

I love a different workout. I like to try new things. Unfortunately, in Austin...I can't find anything that excites me. The 3 I'm doing right now are fun. I hope to find 2 more to add to the mix.

You will do great this week. Keep up the good work!!!

@MH - It's Ballet bar moves crossed with Pilates. I'm excited to try it next week...You have a great week too!

@Dawnya - I love Austin! I would think there would be plenty there...it's such a fun town...But I know it can be hard to find them in a section of town, schedule, and price that works for you. One thing I love about this place is that they have late classes - 7 and 8 pm.
