I think I can, I think I can...but just typing this post is a stretch. I'm trying two new things this week: going to the gym every day, and trying a class every time I go. The gym thing I need to do anyway, and if I do a class, I'm there for a whole hour doing something. Yesterday I tried Intro to Pilates. It was okay, but I wasn't sure if I was doing things right, and I didn't really feel it today. I think if I kept going, I'd figure out what I need to do to make it 'work' for me. I will definitely be in pain tomorrow, though. I tried a class called Body Pump, which is basically lifting weights for an hour. My legs were shaking after the warmup. Bad sign. Now that I'm done, I feel like my arms might fall off, or my legs might give under me. But I can definitely see why people like it--the music is really upbeat, and I didn't have to wonder whether I was covering everything or not. It's nice to have a coach too, and to see everyone else doing it. I'll probably go again on Thursday. If I can move.
Comment time! I love comments, and today I want to hear about what you do to exercise. Are you a runner? do you go for gym classes? or just the treadmill/eliptical/whatever? Or maybe you're a swimmer? I'm curious to hear what works for you. I'm hoping this keeps working for me, since my mom says the better I'm in shape, the easier the labor. I'm game for that!
