Project: Get Fit!

At the end of last year I joined {Virgin Active}.

I hadn’t been to gym in years.

But after {joining} a twitter group for moms with post pregnancy bellies and failing miserably at doing anything about getting my tummy trim I decided it was time to {get motivated} properly.

Needless to say I went a few times and stopped going 🙁

But January saw me trying something different.  Classes.

I usually do the step machine and weight machines but that meant self motivation and I was failing miserably at that.

I decided to do a Pilates class.  I figured with an instructor I wouldn’t be allowed to slack off, I also mistakenly thought that Pilates would be easy.  I couldn’t walk for 2 days afterwards.  It was great!

I then decided to join a work friend at a{Zumba} class.

I am in LOVE with Zumba!

I go every Sunday morning and I try go every Thursday afternoon.  And to my utter delight they have added a Friday afternoon class!  Yay!!

Im getting better at all the different steps and can now occasionally add arm movements to the feet without face planting.

Im going to start keeping a record off all my measurements on the blog so I can track my progress!
