Wogging My Way To a Healthier Me

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 33rd birthday, and I will be celebrating with a gluten free cupcake and a personal training session. Birthdays have been full of disappointment in my life, I always seem to have cotton candy dreams of what they will be, but this year I’ve tries to be realistic. The result? I’ve felt very relaxed and at peace (maybe the noontime margarita helped?) Tonight O had dinner with my family, and my husband went out of his way to get special gluten free cupcakes. I blessed and having a great workout is my idea of a great present to myself. Looking forward to what 33 holds!

A very merry unbirthday to everyone!!

One Challenge at a Time

Last night’s workout did change how I felt, in a positive way. My trainer challenged me with an exercise I tried once before. I love things like this. I found a video of the exercise, except my trainer wanted me to do a squat in between each jump.

At first I kept stepping off each time I’d do a 180 degree jump, but I just kept at it. She wanted me to do 12 in a row, I probably did 24 or more, but I finally stopped letting my mind take over and did the 12 in a row. After I completed them, my mom chimed in “I missed it do it again.” I love things like that! when you push yourself to let your mind stop controlling and you get to experience how far your fitness level has come. When I started this 4 years ago, I didn’t know what a Bosu ball was, now I love it!

When I started, all I did was get on the treadmill and walk. That was great! Slowly I increased the incline. Then a friend wanted me do try squats and lunges. I cursed her for a few days as I couldn’t sit in a chair or a toilet easily. We have all been there…and if you haven’t, maybe one day you will.

Tonight after work, I join my mom and the other characters at the pool for high intensity water aerobics. The thought of being in a swimsuit terrified my at first, but these lovely ladies make it all tolerable.

What exercise are you up to tonight??
