What I’m Feeling Friday… FITNESS

This Friday, I’m feeling all kinds of determined. I have talked about my fitness woes before. You all were full of suggestions and support! Love that! πŸ™‚ Things are slowly turning around for me in that area. It all started with Twitter. Yep, Twitter.

I got a tweet from a workout group here in the L.A. area. They were starting a new fitness class geared at busy moms and invited me to try it out. It’s times like this that I love social media! I immediately got excited. The class started at 9a. I drop my son off for school right before 8a. This was actually doable. So I got up, determined to go. I threw on my workout gear and got our day going. After getting my son to school, my daughter and I headed to the park to get our fitness on! It was lovely. I was sweaty, winded and my muscles hurt. I was beyond happy! I’m the weird one that doesn’t feel like I’ve done anything if I don’t feel the burn!

workout 3The lady that organized the whole thing sat with my daughter so that I could actually work out. She and my baby girl talked, played with toys, picked flowers and ran around all within view of mama. I thought it was so sweet of her to offer. She really wanted me to be able to try the class. I’m always paranoid about people when it comes to my kids so it meant a lot to me for her to offer to keep an eye on her “right over here where you can see us.” She got a big hug from me after class!

The class will be held once a week for the rest of this month. Once they see how it goes and see how many moms are interested they’ll go from them. I’m hoping it does well.Β  Mama needs this!

I’m figuring out our new schedule since my son has started school and I can see where I can squeeze a few more workout days in during the week. YES!

That’s what I’m feeling. What are you feeling this Friday?

    I actually blew off my spin class this morning because I wasn’t feeling well and I know I am going to regret it.

    I need to sign up for another 5k. If I don’t have a pending race, I don’t run!

    I got an elliptical in the living room this week. I’m hoping it’s a kick start to getting back in shape

    It’s great that she watched your daughter so you could actually work out! That’s so nice!

    I’m feeling exhausted but grateful. My virtual assistant business has gotten so hopping that I’m going to be giving my two week notice to my day job this Monday. That is awesome.

      That’s the best. It’s even sweeter when there’s no particular reason. The absolute best! πŸ™‚

    I blew off most of my workout today because I was bit by something on Wed. It hurts to walk, but I did a few blocks tonight. That’s so nice that you had help watching your daughter so you could participate.

    I took a week off from the gym and now I feel all guilty. I need to get my motivation back!

    It’s hard to make exercise a regular part of your schedule but it feels great once you do! I was able to get in some great runs this week and PiYo everyday so I’m super happy with that!

    This sounds like an awesome way to get motivated! I need to find one for busy girls who don’t like to run! πŸ˜‰ great post!

    This is so awesome! Don’t you just love social media??? I have started waking up at the crack of dawn to get my work out on. Painful, but it worked last week!

    So nice to have someone watch your daughter. That makes working out so much easier!

    That’s amazing that you had someone watch your daughter! I would love that – I usually have to allow the TV to babysit while I get a good run on my elliptical.

    One of my goals this fall is to get into a better workout routine. It’s so hard when you have a kid and don’t have much of a support system around. But even if it means we just go for long walks together and I do some strength training while he naps, it’ll be something πŸ™‚

    I’ve got a treadmill and it’s hiding in the garage. I need to break it out!

    My husband is away at bootcamp and since he left I have lost 10 lbs. His homecoming has been a great motivator in fitness.

    You’re so lucky to have a group of busy mom’s get together for fitness – I would feel more motivated with other moms. Good luck on your journey! πŸ˜€

    That was really sweet of her! I can understand you being paranoid about your daughter and having someone taking care of her where you could see and still enjoy the full benefit of the class is just amazing!
