No Pain, No Gain!

Since the birth of G Baby, I have had a bit of an issue with finding clothing that fits me. I have a closet full of clothing and have been reduced to wearing the same few outfits over and over. I knew I was in real trouble when I was reviewing pictures from Christmas and saw a lovely one that my husband took of me - ugh!

My friend, M, who has shared two of my three pregnancies with me - we both have 4-year-olds and 2-year-olds! - told me about an aerobics class she has been taking at the local rec center. It's an hour class twice a week - and the best part is that it only costs $3 a class (after the $20 rec center registration). The instructor is great - really energetic and thorough. I'm really enjoying it and have even lost over 5 pounds in the past three weeks - a great reward!

Well, we had class last night. The instructor had been recovering from an illness at the previous class and gave us stations to complete so she could take it easy. Needless to say, she made it up tonight! She pushed us beyond what I thought I could do - I even wondered if I would be able to walk down the steps to my car after class!

On the drive home I was thinking about how hard class had been. I even had thought that the instructor should be careful walking to her car - you never know when an irritated participant might follow her. But then I thought she probably doesn't have to worry because she worked us all so hard that no one had any energy left to attacked her!

That aside, I know its all for my own good and I always feel better after I go. In fact, I'm already looking forward to the next class!
