I am pleased to announce that I've only cheated ONCE in the last 7 days!!!
That was Saturday night when we went to a friend's house for dinner.
I couldn't help myself
I know you won't tell.
Last night I started my first class at Pure
First of all...let me tell ya.
I haven't formally exercised in a really long time. Well, goodness, I don't think I've done an exercise "class" in at least 6 years.
I'm serious y'all.
Except for tennis, I've totally let myself go.
And I'm not one of those "walkers" like my friends Connie and Barbara.
aka....fastest walkers in the world.
Seriously? They leave me in their dust.
Anyway, I took the plunge and went to Pure Barre last night.
I walk in to a class of about 30 - 30 somethins.
Okay. How do 30 something afford this?
At 23.00 per class it ain't cheap.
That was my first irritation.
My second irritation was that I was AT LEAST 20 lbs heavier than anyone in the class.
And 20 + years older.
I didn't have the "signature" black traction socks.
Or tight yoga pants.
I looked totally ridiculous.
In my wide-legged Target "work out" pants and BRIGHTWHITESOCKS.
I haven't gravitated to Lulu yet.
Okay, so I went in and found all the necessary paraphernalia.
To promptly insure that I would not be able to get out of bed this morning.
Stomach exercises. And it started out really fast.
I was like
I mean, I could not even do a sit up.
Is this going to get better? Cause I surely hope so.
We gravitated to arms/legs/more core/stretching.
When we finished, this sweet young girl next to me looked at me and said "it WILL get better"
"Pure Barre has changed my life."
I can only hope.
As I was walking out one of those 30 somphins gave me this "poor you" look.
I wanted to slap her.
I'm rating about a 6 this a.m.
Have a great day y'all!!!
