Nothing. Other than the fact that you can google search all three and find them in this post.
For those of you who think I'm pregnant, I'll clear the muddy water....
I am not.
I wish that were the case. I got blood work in preparation for getting pregnant! We've been trying for a year now. We realize it might take a while, but I'm not getting any younger, so we're trying to rule out issues while we can.
I was tired because of the blood work. I get all stressed out when I have to get a needle the size of a pvc pipe in my arm. I feel like they took a gallon of blood, even though it was just eight viles.
After a new friend told me about this not-so-new aerobics class, I decided to give it a try. It's a class that has been around for a long time. I've heard of it often. And every time I heard the word, I giggled.
Tell me what you think of when you hear the word Jazzercise?
Yep, me too. I totally expect to see Richard Simmons running out with his way-too-short shorts and way-too-high socks telling me (and all the 90-year old women in the class) that we are good enough to sweat to the oldies with him.
As a matter of fact, "Sweatin' with the Oldies" was going to be the title of this blog post as I was on my way to class this morning. However, about 10 minutes into it I realized my title would have to change. I realize it's sad that I was thinking about my blog while working out, but they had childcare...what else was I supposed to think about!?
Every song the SUPER-TONED instructor played was current and funky. There was rock 'n roll, hip hop, R&B, it was great! And the dance moves were ... just that ... dance moves. Who knew I was going to plie and releve like I did so many years ago in dance class!? There were hardly any mirrors, so I wasn't able to be disgusted with the way my body was moving.
Oddly enough, Alyssa and I didn't bring down the average age of the class that much. I was certain we'd be the youngest by 30 years. That wasn't the case. And the 50-year old instructor (did I mention how great of shape she was in?) did the high-impact version while instructing AND singing....while I broke for water every few minutes and had to take it down a few times because my poor heart couldn't handle it.
So, needless to say, I will be continuing my healthy eating by Weight Watchers and signing up rightthissecond for Jazzercise full time. That's four days a week. I will be keeping my measurements, so hopefully you'll see some significant changes in the months to come.
Don't expect me to drive around with a Jazzercise sticker on the car, though. I'm not sure I'll go that far. Yet.
If you're interested, find a class near you. (and no, I'm not getting paid to blog about this)
On another note, is it possible to eat so many apples you could explode? I've had two today and I'm thinking one could have been my limit. Anyone else ever make that mistake?
