It's Time to Get Fit!

You may know that I joined a gym last April, Northwest Women's Fitness Club. I've been enjoying all the great classes they have to offer...Zumba, Nia, Step 'n Strength, Women on Weights, Yoga and Flirty Girl Fitness...just to name a few! I've also been meeting with a Personal Trainer, Alissa, who is fantastic! She's helping me to make sense of all the equipment in the weight room.

Well...I twisted my ankle about 2 weeks ago, and had to take a break from most of these activities. I was doing the treadmill, and some weights; but for the most part was pretty inactive.

Today I was finally able to get back to my classes. I went to Step 'n Strength with Laurie this morning, followed by Women on Weights. I cannot tell you how happy I was, and how GOOD I felt afterward.

I am now addicted to how movement makes me feel. During the past 2 weeks when my activities were limited, I started feeling sluggish and lethargic; even fuzzy in the brain. I made poor food choices, as well. I'm so excited to be back on track!

Thanks for helping to keep me accountable! I've been so inspired by several friends here at The Naked Sheep who've lost significant amounts of weight. I've lost a total of 18 pounds so far, and am positive that I'll reach my final goal!

If you're interested in visiting the gym with me, just let me know. You can get a free pass to participate in classes and use all the workout equipment for a week. It's such an awesome place!
