Back in the Saddle Again

Well, I did it! I joined the YMCA. I went to my first class today. It was a strength class. I may still look like I'm in shape, but let me assure you that I am not. The class was a bit challenging, but not as bad as I thought. But toward the end, I did loose feeling in my legs. I survived though. On Thursday, I plan to take a Cycle class. I'm worried about this class. I've never taken a cycle class. The class today was me and a bunch of housewives/retired ladies. So, needless to say, I was not intimidated. However, I got a look at the folks waiting for today's cycle class to start. Yeah, it looks pretty serious. All waiting for the class to start (men and women) could crush me between their massive thighs!! So, this will be interesting. I could very well pass out from the exertion!! But, it feels good to be exercising on a regular schedule again.

I just hope I can get out of bed tomorrow morning!!!

Mike's big exercise plan is to buy a mountain bike. His only reservation is having to wear a helmet. He says he's going to purchase a full face helmet. Just typing that makes me giggle. I've never seen a bike rider wearing a full face helmet. He's going to ride the bike on the street to the Lake Norman State Park. So, can you imagine coming upon someone riding their bike on the road and they're wearing a full face helmet. Much less a rider that is, well, not in bike riding shape. I'll be sure to post a picture as soon as one is available!! Stay tuned!

You know I easily pee on myself these days so the image of Mike riding his bike w/ a full face helmet was almost an accident. Just kidding about the whole pee thing, but you get the point. Congratulations on the exercise routine. I plan on losing about 30 lbs by the end of the month myself :)

I laughed out loud at your comment about your legs going numb!! Glad to see you have an outlet for all that energy again. Sure miss our days of working out together!! Good luck at the Y :)
