I would like to first say WOW! I can’t believe this is my 200th Girl Gone Healthy post! How incredible has this journey been so far? I have met so many wonderful people, created a business relationship with a company that is by far unlike any other “gym” company out there, I have established my self in the Healthy web/blog world and I’m proud to be associated with such companies as Amazing Grass, Stevia In The Raw, ProBar, and Mix My Granola. If you had told me 200 posts ago that GGH would be growing this much, I wouldn’t have believed you. Thank you to each and every loyal reader, you logging everyday and spreading the word is what makes the GGH World go ’round. I can’t wait to see what the next 200 will bring, I hope that each of you will continue along for the ride. XO’s- Tera
Allrighty then…..I put my Kleenex away and I’m good to go.
So tonight I was feeling adventurous and I decided to pack Zachary up and hot Fit World for the second time today. Lea, my fave, has a 5:30 cardio class called 20/20. Here’s the description: 20 minutes each of step and hi-lo cardio. A serious ab segment at the end, tops off this amazing cardio workout!
So after reading it I was like, Yea I can totally handle that…..UMMMM NO! LOL
I like to think there are different “languages” when it comes to classes. Allow me to explain….
I can speak Kickboxing, Zumba, Spin, Pilates, Yoga, and most cardio/weight training classes in between. Meaning I love those classes and I’m good at them LOL. I can keep up, I get all of the moves right off the bat etc….
I DO NOT speak Step…..not at all! For a dancer this was the worst feeling ever. I felt like I had two left feet! No kidding!
This class was super quick, intense and filled with some serious Steppers (that’s what I’m going to call them 😉 ). I was looking in the mirror and these people were doing all sorts of tricks on this board of death. I was soooooo waiting to bust my butt, and I was right in front behind Lea. I felt bad for people behind me, they probably couldn’t see Lea because of my failing. Eventually we stopped using the board of death and did some nice intense floor cardio, now that’s my style. Lea even threw in some kickboxing ( I will pretend that was just for me) and I was so happy we were speaking my language, LOL. We ended the class with a super duper intense Ab segment. I can’t breathe with out my entire core feeling as if it’s being lit on fire….AWESOME! This class is not at the top of my list of faves, but I will give it another shot. Just because I’m not good at something from the get go doesn’t mean I can’t try it again. That’s just hard for me to swallow LOL. I like to win, I like to be first, and I hate not being able to do something-Gotta Get Over It!
