Fall is HERE!!!
Oh the weather in Florida is just GLORIOUS!! We are in the 70s today & nice & windy. I LOVE this time of year in Florida!!
We took some time to go to PA & visit my parents a couple weeks ago but it wasn't much of a vacation. My eldest son got really sick & was in the hospital for most of the trip. While there was no confirmed diagnosis we are very happy he is better & living life like a 16 yr old should. School & baseball are the main focus again instead of "what's for breakfast, lunch, dinner & when is the next blood draw". Yuck.
Well, I have tackled a challenge I have had in the back of my mind for a long time. A spin class!! My sister is a member of a large gym in the area & invited me to come & check it out. Let me tell you - KICKED MY BUTT!!!!!. It was one of the good butt kickins' though :) I'm looking for a place that I can go and just pay for the class though & not get a membership. They just don't seem to offer that stuff here though. we'll see. I may just have to be a professional "guest". There is NO way I can just do 1 spin class & say I'm done. I must have more!! Yet another mountain to conquer for me.
I'm still healing from my plantar fascitis & whatever happened with my elbow. Tennis & golf elbow are actual REAL things & I have them both in the same elbow it seems. Don't play either sport! Funny. So, I am looking forward to when I can run again. I would be happy with a slow, leisurely jog at this point! Looking forward also to my heavier weights.
I have been able to get my workouts in though without taking much of a break. Pilates, Yoga & some of things have been great for me during this time. I have been able to get a little more active & incorporated some cardio in with my TurboFire DVDs. Gotta love Chalene. Jillian Michaels has been seen in my living room lately too :) 30 Day Shred is a GREAT dvd for shorter intense workouts if you don't have alot of time.
How are you celebrating Fall? Getting out there with your family? Talking walks or just playing in the yard? I hope so!!
Be Blessed & Healthy!!
