Ever have one of those days when you just feel really, really good about yourself? Well, I am having one of them. When I went to the gym this morning, I felt like I should take a class since that is what I usually do. I had quite a few options: kickboxing, spinning, and pilates. None of the classes appealed to me. I’m not sure why but I just went with it. I ended up doing 45 minutes on the treadmill and tried to vary the workout. I would put an incline of 8 and a speed of 3 and then would go down to an incline of 4 and a higher speed. It was fun and I enjoyed my workout.
My gym has the treadmill with little tvs and the person who used the treadmill before me, left it on. I usually just listen to music but decided to leave the tv turned on. It was the show “Live With Regis & Kelly.” Kelly was wearing this cute top that showed off her buff arms. She looked incredible! She looks that way in real life too. A few months ago, I read the November issue of Shape magazine. Kelly was on the cover. She looked amazing. In the article, she spoke about a new workout that transformed her body. (Don’t they always say that, though?). Anyway, she said she had been working out at Physique 57. After reading the story, I googled it. I read review after review saying how the class is so addicting and it changed people’s bodies, etc..
Since I live close enough to the city, I decided to check it out. Lo and behold, Kelly was in my class!!!!! I actually chatted with her for a bit and she was so freaking nice and friendly. She is super, super tiny and her arms are very toned and buff. I should have told her that I was at the class because of her, but I felt stupid. So I didn’t.
The class was great and loads of fun. I never went back because it was just way too far from my house and too time consuming. Then I found The Bar Method, which is a similar workout and only 15 minutes away from me. Alas, I have yet to see a celebrity in my class.
When I saw Kelly’s arms on the show this morning, I almost started drooling. I want arms like that! My arms are defined but not nearly as cut as hers. Yeah, yeah, I know she weighs like 90 pounds soaking wet but I can still covet her arms, can’t I?
After running errands and showering, I got on the scale. I tend to avoid the scale because I try to focus on how I look and feel. Lately I have been feeling really good and so I said, what the heck. I weighed myself. I was very happy to see the number. After eating a lot during the holidays and not working out, I am pleased to say I am back on track and it shows! Yippee!!
I just want to be clear that I am not happy only because of the number on the scale. Of course I am thrilled but I am most happy with the fact of how I have been feeling inside 🙂
