I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Workout Wednesday

I am going to try something new tonight.  It has been years since I have taken a kickboxing class.  But, it used to be my favorite.  And since now I have skinnied up I am going to try it again.

The class is not some fun cardio class at the local gym full of cute little women that want to get their sweat on.  It is the real deal.  It is at a boxing gym.  You get to wear gloves and everything.  The instructor is a hard core boxer.

I am not going to lie.................I am scared.  Not of the physical aspect of a new workout.  It is the mental part that I find hard to cope with.  The walking into a new class.  Finding just the right place to stand.  Meeting new people. 

It is totally out of my comfort zone.

But I am going.

Because I need to prove that I really am strong.

I need to prove to myself that I can do this.  So I can feel empowered. 

So, send warm fuzzy thoughts my way today.  I need all the good vibes I can get.


  1. I will now have Rocky music stuck in my head all day just for you :o)

  2. I'm the same way...you know you can do this so go out there and kick some ass!!!

  3. Sending you great vibes. You can totally do this.

    I don't deal with new situations very well, and I got dragged to a kickboxing class a few years ago. Everyone was so nice and no one cared that I was as red as a tomato and sweating like a pig. My theory is that everyone else is so concerned with what they look like they don't really pay much attention to you!

  4. I will send you warm fuzzies. I would be afraid of getting hit. I am a serious sissy.

  5. Go girl - I LOVE this idea!!! Great job on moving outside your zone...

  6. Ooooh I'm so J. Seriously, this is badass. You go girl. Tell us how it goes.

  7. Good for you! A friend of mine teaches a kickboxing class and I've been wanting to try it out.

  8. GO YOU!!! :) Can't wait to hear how it went!

  9. YAY! My friend has been into kickboxing for years now! She loves it!
    Good luck!

  10. I hope it was awesome! I always wanted to try that. :)

  11. Wow, that sounds Fun...Hard but FUN! Can't wait to hear about it!
