Wellness class and Boy am I sore.

Wellness class and Boy am I sore.


So today was the first workout in my wellness and fitness concepts class. I'm very pleased to announce that it was a GREAT work out. All kinds of different activities! Jumping Jacks, Push-ups (GUY ONES!), Running, Jogging in place, Leg lifts, and many more. It was kinda of weird doing these exercises around my entire class of around 35 or 40. But, I felt better as I told myself "They are NOT looking at me...they are exercising too! Calm down. No one is laughing." It was good. However, My Professor didn't have time to weigh us all today...or do the body fat percentages....that I thought we were suppose to do today...so I have no idea when we will be doing that. Since I didn't get to weigh in class, I'm going to weigh sometime this weekend while I'm at home. I will update with that as soon as possible.


BOY AM I SORE.

Monday and Tuesday night I worked out on the treadmill that is down stairs in the lobby of my dorm. I got a good work out both nights. However, I think I pushed it a little too hard. I could only do 30 minutes both nights...because of sharp chest pains. I think I was just going too fast or something. I'm fine now. I don't think it was anything serious. Then today...well that workout in class. It's been a while since I actually put a huge effort into working out...and I SURE do feel it. I love the feeling though. It may sound weird but...it makes me feel good to know I worked it...and I'm sore for GOOD reason! It's my Iron Clad Decision to lose this weight. It makes me feel good about the road to come. It's going to be amazing.


Oh, and Calories. No problem.
I'm feeling good about this. This is IT.

  5. Sounds like you're starting off the year in a great way. I know what you mean about feeling self conscious and having others look at you but like you said they aren't worried about you. I'm sure they are stressing themselves about their own insecurities. If anything I'm sure they are rooting for you.
