So I joined a gym. It's Lifestyle Family Fitness in Lake Mary,FL. I was hesitant at first because I have never needed to exercise. NEVER! I know what you're thinking. Oh, listen to the skinny girl complaining because she has to start exercising now. Well, I KNOW I've been extremely lucky to have a fast metabolism or whatever, and I have been grateful, but after being on the treadmill for 20 mins. I have come to the realization that I am NOT in shape! I've tried out several classes now and if you've ever thought about it but haven't, it's been pretty fun. Now my former students and my family know that I'm NOT coordinated and definately can't dance, but I'm still having fun and so far no one has laughed at me or said anything otherwise to me! I've actually had fun and it's kind of a destressing relaxer. I've done yoga, pilates, Zuumba, bodyjam so far and (yes, I do hurt a little afterwards....) it's actually kind of fun. I'm learning new moves and getting more flexible. I can actually touch the floor without bending my knees now. I've never really been able to do that before. I can't wait to see how my body changes and tones up after a few monthes of doing this! Who knows, maybe I'll actually get into shape.
