(By the way, where did the term "love handles" come from?
Does anyone actually LOVE them?!?!)
I hit an all-time low when one of my students walked up to me, pointed at my stomach, and said, "Mrs. Allen, do you have a baby in your belly?" AAAGGGHHH!!!! I politely smiled and said, "No, it's just time for Mrs. Allen to lose some weight." Kids, gotta love 'em, right?!?!
Anyway, I have these wonderful friends who are determined to support me to actually make some healthier choices when it comes to eating and exercising. So on Thursday, we decided to join Crossfit Oswego. What were we thinking?!?! After a 60-minute "trial," we were all coughing, breathing heavily, and ready to throw up. This wasn't even the full-blown workout that everyone else was doing!
Well, I thought for sure that I would be hurting the next day; but, to my surprise, I wasn't the least bit sore. My friends, on the other hand, were having trouble going up and down the stairs at school. Wow, I was so impressed with myself! I haven't worked out in months, but I must be in good shape if this workout didn't bother me, right? WRONG! I woke up this morning with a sore lower back, sore shoulders, and sore legs. I've been hydrating, stretching, and popping some Advil to loosen my muscles.
What is the saying? No Pain, No Gain, right? I have until Tuesday to be able to walk, move my arms, and feel my back because that's the next time we'll be going. What, did you think I was going to throw in the towel so quickly?! Wish me luck!!
