I have been struggling with trying to exercise as much now (that I am working full time) as I was when I was home. I exercised everyday when I was home....and now after a LONG day teaching, the last thing I want to do is workout. By the time I get the boys home and fed, it is usually too late to go for a walk or bike ride (plus Reilly goes to bed at 6 - 6:15!!). I do have an elliptical machine which I try to use 2-3 times a week.
I found a new exercise that I am excited about and it is FUN!! It is a type of dance class.....and yes...a pole is involved!! It is SOOOO much fun! It is a great workout - the first time I did it I was sore for DAYS!! I am able to do things after 4 classes that I didn't think were possible! My hip seems to be taking this class well. A few pops here and there...but that is "normal". I am not sure that Dr. Millis would quite approve of this.....especially when I am wearing "the shoes" dancing!! I will just be careful and make sure nothing happens to my "new and improved" hip!
I look forward to the class each week.....and feel good about myself after I leave...and that is the most important thing.
