I am sorry if I have neglected this blog for a few weeks. With all the snow little has been going on but, I have stayed focused on my new year’s resolutions. I joined Snap Fitness Center and have been working on the weights a few times a week. I am attending several fitness classes which include, Zumba, pilates and step areobics. I love them all and the instructor’s are great. I have discovered the pilates has had the biggest impact on me. For years I have suffered with neck and shoulder pain. I go to the chirapractor and the massage therapist at least once a month costing me an average of $70.00 a month. The day after my first pilates class I noticed a change in my body. Most of the pain is gone and because of that I sleep better. I normally wake up between 6 and 8 times a night, now I wake up to go to the bathroom( from all that water I drink) but, I go right back to sleep. I haven’t been to the chiropractor or the massage therapist in over two months! I also take line dancing and Zumba at the Harrington Moose making for about 28 classes a month. Some mornings I work out in my home gym for a total of about 12-14 hours a week of working out. I have made major diet changes as well, cutting out bread, meat, soda and sweets. I treat myself to each of those items about twice a week but, eat lots of fruits and vegetables. I know that sounds like a lot and it is! To date I have lost 13 pounds, mostly belly fat and although I have about 5 or so pounds to go, I feel great. No more tight cloths. I also have taken a few enrichment classes, Stamping, How to get Published and have signed up for a tole-painting class. Now that spring weather is on it’s way I plan to get working with the horses and preparing for summer camps. Did you visit? Leave a comment!
