How is that class treating me you ask?

Today is a day of rest after three intense boot camp classes.  Actually this day of rest is a gift from God, the last class is at 5:30 on Friday and since I work until 5:30-6:00 I can't make it.  Once I build up my strength and endurance I am considering going to a morning class before work.  That way I will still be able to work out on Fridays. 

Tomorrow morning is a work out and then a nutrition class.  I know what I should stay away from but don't seem to have the will power to do it.  I am hoping emerging myself in the whole fitness program will help to reprogram my mind and get rid of all of the negative self talk.

How I feel physically:
After three days of classes my thighs and shins are sore (the thighs are a lot better however).  My neck is a little sore today also, I must not have done the crunches right last night.  

How I feel emotionally:
I can't quiet explain my emotional state, it is bouncing all over.  I'm in shock because I am sticking it out.  My mind set is changing, shhh don't tell anyone but I think I might be starting to feel like I want to go back to class.

I am used to being the nurturer and the encourager - the roles have changed right now.  I'm sure it's part of the process but I'm still trying to get my head around it.  

I'm embarrassed at what I can't do physically, that might just be what is taking me back each night.

My family is 100% behind me, all four of us have joined and will be getting fit/healthier together.  How cool is that?!

Now I just have to rearrange my routines so the house doesn't fall apart during the new adventure.

Sherry, that's great that you are all working together to a healthier lifestyle. I'm proud of how you are still pushing forward. I have such a tough time with being motivated one minute and the next, not feeling it at all.
