No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Good grief. The weekend was way too short and I hardly did anything. I was in a bit of a funk all weekend and so far most of this week. I hate to blame everything on this menopause shit but, UGH, the symptoms just seem to be getting worse. I'm not sure what else it could be because life is pretty normal otherwise.
I started my week with horrible, awful, awful food poisoning on Monday afternoon. Of course, it lasted just until about 3am on Tuesday morning so I was just OK to go to work. Then yesterday was my first pole fitness class. It was interesting, a whole lot of fun and pretty TOUGH. It is no joke. We started with 20 minutes of 'warm-up' which was more like 1000 types of exercise that all worked our entire bodies, especially the upper body. I was dripping in sweat by the end of 20 minutes, not to mention I still wasn't feeling 100% from the food poisoning extravaganza. After the 'warm-up' the instructor taught me and 2 other new girls a few of the basic pole moves. They were pretty easy and the last few involved a spin around the pole (I can't believe I'm writing this - lol ) that used ALL upper body strength and almost killed me, as well as some sort of split thing that wasn't too tough. The thing that I loved was that it was different, it was fun, it was a good strength workout and the instructor was awesome. She accommodated everyone, whether it was their 1st or 50th time. It was a small class of about 10 ladies. It will be a lot of fun. I just need to be careful and not get injured. My entire body is sore today and I have another class tomorrow. Yites!
TWO more days until the weekend! We can do this!
