Day One Done and Done

Check 1,2... Testing. Testing. I could tell the instructor was going to be a little too gung-ho for me at 8:30 in the morning when she was testing a million mics before class. Annoying to say the least. And then when the class started she became 100 times more annoying- but that's not to say I didn't like this chick.

I've found a new class I like- It's called Metabolic Effect- Kind of like a 30 minute boot camp followed by Absolution- an abs class where I do OK until anything with a plank is involved. Today's instructor was one of those people that is tries to get ya pumped up and motivate ya to push yourself harder- but not in a natural way. The entire class I heard comments like "If you're going on a trip for spring break, you don't start in March, you start NOW!" and "Summer is just around the corner, what do you want to look like?" Cheesy to some I'm sure, but to me today she nailed it on the head and hit home.  Let's just say I felt like she was that little devil on my shoulder saying things in my ear- all the thoughts I think all the time.  Kind of like my inner self conscious.

I almost felt like I was being punked when she went off on a tangent that  sounded just like my inner voices. She started saying how so many people have thoughts like "When I'm skinny, I will be so much happier. When I lose weight, things will be so much better, I will do this and I will do that, and all my problems will be solved." It shouldn't be WHEN we need to BE. We need to be that person now and make choices to get there.  It's not going to happen by itself. So very true.

So today, I'd like to thank that over the top teacher. She must be doing something right.  I worked out, did extra cardio, and ate well. Well I'll BE!!!

And now I'm off to watch my seedy reality TV- Sweet Home Alabama- gotta love a cheaply done version of the Bachelor. AND I'm watching it upstairs tonight- my kitchen is closed.:)
