"Go to the gym" my mind pleaded...one of four things to commend this month

Sunday, October 02, 2011

Yeah! Finally I am to "that point". Where my mind tells my body that I MUST go to the gym because of the mental pay off! I just had to make the 9:30 am powerflex class (the only class my gym offered besides kick boxing today). I am thrilled to have "mindpower" on my side now too!

Hurrah. I did a powerflex class and I actually switched up my aerobics by climbing on the elliptial rather than the bike. (I was pleased to be doing more weight bearing aerobics as I rarely stand up and pedal on the bike.)

I skipped church (and broke the sabbath as I understand honoring this day to be) but I REALLY needed to get to the gym. God knows my health requires that I get some of these "issues" resolved. I need to plan better so I can get rid of the "guilt" for not attending three hours of meetings.

This month is one to be commended for three things in particular. Make that four (including the mind now being a cheerleader). One is top number of exercise minutes this year (over 2,000) two and three are starting both weights and aerobics this month as part of my physical therapy, stretching and yoga "routines".

Oh ya and after almost two years of sparking regularly, a few days ago, I was able to jump (knees bent, feet raised to crotch) during a Zumba class. I am 30 pounds lighter and the jump wasn't even semi-questionable. No foot pain after class (okay so my upper back hurt some but still...)!

My health is getting better and better and all these things make me so happy!
