Great Workout

So today I went to my hip hop zumba class at 11AM and my friend Susan joined me. It was a great workout. It is pretty much all cardio and I hadn't done a strength session in a while. I ran the race Saturday, I went hiking Sunday, and then last night I used my living social voucher at Ladies total fitness and attended a class. I usually meet with Tammye on Mondays for a strength circuit but my husband had to mow the lawn last night and I needed childcare. So, truth be told I ditched Tammye and joined my friend Brianne for a class called Bodyvive. The class was a pretty good workout. I definitely sweat but my trainer would have laughed at it. I felt good though and I felt strong. Did I mention that my Bodyvive instructor was as old as my grandma? haha :)

Anyways, I did not want to do a Bootcamp strength class tonight...I mean I already worked out once today right? But I knew that I needed it. I totally went begrudgingly. However, on my way to workout, I was illegally reading my email when I saw this email on facebook.
I don't know if you remember me. I was a year younger than you in high school. I came across your blog recently and it is so inspirational! After three babies, I need to lose 100+ pounds. It has seemed so overwhelming that truth be told, I haven't even taken the first step. Your blog has really made me want to change that. Thank YOU!!
P.S. You look FANTASTIC!
I didn't ask permission to share this, so I am not going to share who it was from but can I just tell you that getting that email made my workout tonight! I went from not wanting to go to wanting to give it my all! I worked really hard and gave it a good effort.

It was a beautiful day today. It was 84 degrees...not great workout weather. Tonight my class was a bootcamp class with Tammye through Parks & Rec; so we worked out outside. It actually felt great and I gave it my best effort. Almost all the people that were there tonight were new and I actually felt like one of the stronger/faster ones in the group. I mean one girl left to get a piece of candy cause she thought she was going to pass out. I still feel weak & slow but tonight there were lots that seemed weaker & slower and it felt good. Is that terrible? Well even if it wasn't my hardest workout...I kind of felt like I had a break through. I just felt great and I still do!!
