Ugh, so sore today. Went to my class last night and got my booty handed to me with a very challenging “push pull” workout. Yeah my arms felt like noodles. But I love it, because it means that I’m going to get stronger!
I’ve been going to my classes regularly and I am super excited about the gains I’ve made in my upper and lower body strength. It’s in the everyday things that I appreciate my new strength. While winterizing the yard I didn’t tire as quickly, I wasn’t sore, I didn’t have to ask the hubs for help lifting the giant garbage cans, and I got the job done in way less time. Score! But the thing that I am loving right now totally shows how much of a nerd I am. I played Just Dance with my girly this past weekend and I can do the hard dances now without feeling like an old lady! Don’t laugh! Ok go ahead 🙂 But I’m serious, before I wouldn’t do the parts that went down to the floor or jumped high because I just didn’t have the total body strength. Well, now I do! I may not look “cool” but I can do it :). It’s the little things.
A picture from class last night. Look at this TIRE! We had to push that big boy back and forth! I’m all crazy in this pic because I finished my 10 rounds and I don’t have to push it anymore…for a while anyway 🙂
One more with the tire, just so you can see how big it is! That thing could squish me like a bug. But I wasn’t going down easily 🙂
Are you doing any strength training? What areas would you like to get stronger??
