Go Hard or Go Home!

Happy Monday everyone! Yes I know it's already over or almost over.  It's still got at least an hour to go!  So, how is everyone?  Good? Great!  So the title of my blog, it's a positive re-enforcement or saying that my personal trainer used to tell me to pump me up while we were working out.  Ha, what'd you think it meant???   I started a "new and improved" step class today.  I was curious to find out what made it so new and improved.  Clearly, it was just a false build-up.  The class is still exactly the same, the only thing that is different is there is a new instructor.  I think in another life he was an attack dog or something.  Good lord! He was relentless! I've done step aerobics before but this was was more intense and more challenging (which is good), and I thought I was going to pass out!  -Not really, but I really didn't think I was going to make it through to the end of the class. I'm happy to inform, that I finished it! I was drenched in sweat, but I did it. And then, because I have masochistic tendencies, I did a half hour on the Elliptical, just for kicks.  Thus began my journey to a leaner sexier version of myself.  Don't get me wrong, I've been working out for awhile now, but I've stepped it up with my diet and as you read, my exercising.  I'm all about the healthy from now on.  I'll post about it from time to time and give you progress reports because I know how much you will be wanting to know.  At the gym where I work-out, there is an Erotic dance class that is offered once a week.  I inquired about it today because I'm curious and because they claim it burns TONS of calories. I really want to try it.  I know mostly, I'll laugh my ass off  though!  So anyway, my first class is Thursday.  It's an hour long class, no men, just women.  The instructor told me to wear comfortable clothes -as opposed to my work-out attire I suppose?  And she said to be ready with a name for my alter-ego.  Ha, this is going to be hilarious!  Just so you know, I do have an alter-ego (doesn't everyone?), she's got a name, and she comes out every once in a while. 

I'm tired.  I think I'll stop babbling now and go give my pillow some head.  heh.

Sleep well my friends!

I joined the gym too, Yvonne. But your workout is much harder than mine.
If I tried to wind myself around a pole I'd hurt myself.
What is your alter-ego name? The only one that would fit me is Hazel (the maid in the comics). "Oh, can I dust that for you?" said...

Step aerobics drives me crazy. Do inform us about the exotic dance class. Okay, you're helping motivate me to join the gym already.

Awesome! I love reading about other people's diet and fitness plans. You sound like you're doing all the right things . . . making all the right moves, Yvonne. :)

Good luck!
