He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.” -Proverb
Welcome back to Weight Loss Wednesday friends! Another week has passed us by, how crazy. Last week I decided to take up a spinning class at the gym I train at. Wednesday was my first class and do you know the biggest lesson I learned? Allow me to share with you lest you make the same mistake: Do NOT do a 50 min leg workout prior to a 60 min spin class! Although you will burn a large number of calories, your legs will turn into jello that will want to collapse rather than move. Yes, I did that. Yes, I thought I would be fine. Yes, I was wrong. Thank you Nighttime Recovery, you are the reason I was able to walk the next day. While I like jogging outside and the fresh air, my knee and ankle are appreciating the spinning class much more. Now I am attending every MWF. It is also nice to be in a group setting as misery always loves company!
My eating has been great because I am doing AdvoCare's Herbal Cleanse right now. For the best results, healthy eating is required, so that's what I am doing. I am also using Tosca Reno's Eat Clean For Family and Kids cookbook a bit this week. Between that and Betty Crocker's 300 Calories cookbook, I am trying a few new things for dinner. I love it! Do not think too highly of me though, I choose all the recipes that look easy to put together.
In other news, I am working to put together a bootcamp class for people who want to workout in a group setting and outside of a gym. Pray for me friends. I love these kinds of things, and want it to benefit others and do it well. Summer is not a highly active time for personal training either, so I think a bootcamp may be the way to go.
Speaking of doing things together, do not forget about the contest I am hosting. Although you will be a few days behind, you are still more than welcome to join the get healthy party. Go here for the 4-1-1! Be blessed friends, lace up your shoes and go for a walk, play with your kids, play "tag" with your spouse, laugh, rest, and challenge yourself. You are worth it.
