I love kickboxing!

Went to kickboxing!! And had a wonderful day afterwards. Nothing like punching the hell out of the heavy bag, followed by some hards kicks to relieve aggression and get fit all at the same time. Hopefully will make it to Jui-jitsu tomorrow as a follow-up :)

Weight loss challenge

So far the weight loss challenge has been a bit of a wash. The last week of school with all of its treats, staff party, Rick's last few days of shutdown, drinking wine and beer and loving life. It's been a fantastic week, but it's time to get serious and quit sabotaging myself!

Heading to the gym today to do my program that Rob the Psycho made for me, so tomorrow ought to be particularly ouchie with sore muscles :) But in a good way, of course. I have decided that in addition to hitting as many kickboxing classes as possible this summer, that it's time to start going to Pilates and yoga classes too. I took a look at the gym schedule and some of the classes I want to go to are still in the evening, but there's a few during the day. Frankly I don't see much point in going to some of the classes, I want to see results, not prance around just for the fun of it. If it's not going to push my sorry ass to work harder, it's just not worth it. Not sure about trying spinning class, I know it burns a million calories, but I think it would be a little hard on the knees. We'll see. Maybe in a couple of weeks for a change?!

Hope everyone is enjoying this fabulous heat wave...makes for uncomfortable sleeping. However, I'm not complaining, it's all part of summer!
