Just Kicking It:)

Did you guess what type of class I'm not taking?!?!  The hint I gave you was a pretty big one;)

Well, if you guessed kickboxing then you are correct!!! Sorry, I don't have any prizes or anything like that for you:(  You can just have the satisfaction of being correct!!!

This class not only has kickboxing, but weight training as well.  It's a local class called BodyFit.  It's definitely not like Crossfit.  I wish someday I could do that!!  When I first started this class, I seriously felt like a fish out of water, I kid you not!!  The instructors were/are awesome and always tried to help me as much as they could, but even with their help, I felt like a fool!!!  I didn't give up though!  I pushed through and I kept on going!

These classes were WAY different than what I was used to!  I was used to running, taking Zumba, using the stair master, and elipitical.  These workouts consisted of different hit and kick combos on the bag, along with mitting up with a partner, from anything to burpees, jump squats, weighted walking lunges and so on!  I would stand in the class the instructor would be like:  "This is your hit combo 1, 2, 5, 6"  (she would show us) and then she would give us 30 seconds to hit the combo on our bags.  I just stood at my bag and watched everyone else.  I had NO clue what 1,2, 5,6 meant.  So, I just punched whatever, just as long as I was moving.  The weight lifting part of class was even worse for me.  I know that this is terrible and I'm ashamed to admit this, but I didn't even know what a bicep curl or hammer curl looked like!!  For the first month, (I think) the instructor repeated the directions about 4 times just for me, since I looked like a fool and a deer in headlights.

The first couple days more like the first week or two, I woke up and seriously had to have my husband pull me out of bed!  My WHOLE body was sore every where!!!

Weight Loss Update!!!!

Like I said yesterday, I took so time off to do me and get myself in check, just to make sure that  I continue living a healthy life.  I'm happy to report that I have kept on a trucking, as far as living a healthy lifestyle.  I'm super proud that I look at this as a lifestyle change and not just a diet.  This is the way I will live the rest of my life.  I'm still learning as I go on this fairly new path and I'm tweaking it as I go along!  I've had my ups and downs since the last time I checked in with everyone.
That's my new mantra!  Don't give up!  I've learned, if you fall, once, twice, or even three times, just get up, dust your self off, and hop right back on the healthy train.

I'm Baaackkk!!!

Hey Everyone!!!  It's been soo long since I have logged into Blogger and I'm happy to be back.  I have missed writing and sharing with everyone.  Life just kind of took over and I had to focus on myself, family, and friends, so that's why I haven't been on here in forever!  I have officially finished yet another school year.  This is my 7th and very successful school year down:)  It's hard to believe that I have that many years of teaching under my belt already!

There has been lots that has gone on since I wrote my last post, but the most recent and exciting thing that just happened is that I changed my hairs again!  I was a little bit scared to try this new do because it's so much different than what I always go with, but they say change is always good:)  Anyways,  I usually stick with blonde or dirty blonde for hair color and this time around, I chose red!!  I didn't really expect it to be this shade of red, but it kind of just grew on me.  I had a couple peeps ask me if it was my true hair color, so it must kinda just go.  Here's a couple pics of my new do:)

New Outfit!  Do you like?!?

I can be a poser, at times.
I have so many other things to tell you all about!  So you will all need to stop back sometime soon to see the updates!  I know I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs and see what I missed out on:):):)

Thanks for stopping by:):):)

Until next time!!!!
