I’m almost embarrassed, but I signed up for another gym. Let me clarify: I have one gym at my apartment complex, which wins points for convenience. It’s literally down the hall. But it’s TINY. Then I have a gym at work, which is great, but it’s at work, which is far away, and closed on the weekend. So tonight, I signed up at Gold’s Gym. Why? Because:

1. I don’t want to get burned out in my current routine

2. I want to try some new classes (Like Body Pump!)

3. I want to push myself out of the cardio/free weight routine I’ve got going on


Technically, I haven’t signed up for anything. I’ve got 7 days to try it and see if I like it. I have to admit. I’m really excited to try some new classes. Group exercise just does such a great job of keeping me motivated.

What type of exercise keeps you motivated? Goals? Workout buddies? Classes? I’m trying them all ๐Ÿ™‚

Right now I’m feeling super ambitious, and I want to try the Body Pump class tomorrow… at 6am.

Will I get up @ 5:30 to make it in time? Probably not ๐Ÿ˜‰ But if not, it’s ok, because Netflix just sent me Jillian Michael’s 30 Shred DVD!!!(Apparently Richmond is getting a lot of snow tomorrow, so I might not be going anywhere!)

Has anyone tried Jillian Michael’s workouts? I haven’t yet…


So let’s rewind today. I woke up this morning around 7:15am and I wasn’t even tempted to hit the snooze button. In fact, I practically bounced out of bed. I went to bed around 10:15 last night, so I got a ridiculous amount of sleep. It was pretty glorious. I knew it was going to be a good day. Work went well, and I did the spinning class during lunch. (Normally, I shy away from spinning. It’s pretty rough!) It felt great! I was pretty sad that I left my bodybugg in the locker room though ๐Ÿ™ The morale of the story? My body likes extra sleep.


How much sleep do you normally get?


Speaking of slumber, I’m off to catch some ZZZ’s. Later!
