Boot Camp

Hit Counter

Well, Friday, I bit the bullet and went to Boot Camp at the Y.

I've been going to Pilates, and water aerobics, and Step....but held off on Boot Camp.

But it was awesome.....3 big weight lifter dudes, and a 35 year old in about my shape (whose husband was supposed to meet her in the class), and me.

When I came in, the MEN were grousing that women didn't take the class because they are wimps. Oh...that so fired me up!

A challenge!

So I did my dead level best to outdo them on everything!

When, halfway through, one MAN threatened to quit.... I told him, "if a 65 year old woman can do it so can you......MAN UP"

Now we have a bet on who will be back this Fri. I will be there!

For the downside, I could barely walk....Sat and Sun...from hopping up and and down on my step
to show off how fit I am (JOKE)

But really, I can feel my core getting stronger (Pilates term for midsection) I actually remember to sit up and hold my belly button in.....between woman who's first words from her mother were "Stand up straight....hold your stomach in" something I never mastered in 65 years.

Geronimo!.......I mean Donnamo!

You are amazing! Keep kicking tail and show those men how to do it!

Thanks so much for your encouragement and sweet comments! I've been so scattered as of late, and my blogging fell by the wayside...I still feel pretty scattered, but do so enjoy the blogging and need to make time for it.

Have a great day!

Hey, I just noticed your "Home Safe" post. Wow, you're on a writing spree! Keep it up---you always have such interesting, newsy, colorful things to write about.

I'm glad your Mother's Day was a good one. Peter really enjoyed the painting in SS. At home he got out some paint and straws to do the "Holy Spirit" method some more!
