Here's to good health
My 29 minute workout was great last night, the music was good, my instructor pushed me just enough, and I left with a kick of adrenalin. The super fit young gym instructor really gave me a wake up call when she asked me "what are your goals with exercise?" to which I responded "to get fit, strong and stay healthy this year" and after a short delay she asked "and do you want to lose weight?". OUCH! I'm carrying a few extra kilos, but weight loss is not a goal for me, and I know that it will happen as I'm getting fit and strong anyway, which is exactly what I said to this otherwise lovely person. I think she is probably just extremely honest and open, just like me. So, we shall see how many days I get to Contours next week, my goal is at least 4 times. Wish me luck. Today, I'm just enjoying the muscle tightness in my abs that I haven't felt for about 18 months, and I'm looking forward to being fit and strong again very soon.
