As I mentioned last week, I had Barre training this past Saturday and it was awesome! I have been going to a lot of trainings and this was probably the best one I've been too. I learned so much in such a short time. And the way the training and the program are structured I feel very ready to start instructing classes (with a LOT of practice). But I feel like even though it is a new program for me, I am fully equipped and ready to go.
My plan is to go to as many Barre classes around town as I can in the next 2 months. And I also want to get to some Yoga classes as there is a Yoga component to the class. I want to learn as much as I can from other instructors and start getting my class together. I talked to one of my group fitness directors and we are hoping to do a few demo classes in December and then hopefully add the class to the schedule in January.
Other than training, it's been a pretty normal week. Unlike last week, mostly everything went according to plan. I always like it when that happens! Here's what I did last week:
Wednesday - Taught 1 one hour Zumba class
Thursday - Taught 2 one hour Zumba classes
Friday - Taught a one hour Zumba Gold class and walked back and forth from school
Saturday - Barre training for 9 hours!
Sunday - Walked around the expo center for around 6 hours. Lots of standing and walking and standing and walking. I was exhausted!
Monday - Taught a one hour Zumba Gold class & a one hour Zumba class and walked back and forth from school
Tuesday - Taught a 45 minute Silver Sneakers class & a one hour Zumba Gold class
I haven't updated on this so I thought I would mention that my exercise streak is up to 184 days! My goal is to make it 365 days. But after I had to break it once, I now have little goals. My next goal is coming up soon, 200 days straight. That will be in just over 2 weeks, yay!
I didn't want to weigh in this morning. My eating since Sat night has not bee good. And last night I ate my feelings and anxiety while watching the election results. Plus I had a burger, fries and milk shake for lunch yesterday since the kids were off from school and they begged me to take them to Steak N Shake. But I did it anyway to stay accountable. I was shocked to see a loss of 3 lbs putting me back to my pre-Halloween weight. I was seriously shocked! Plus I was fully dressed so I may have even seen a bigger loss. I'm hoping to do better with my eating this week and see another loss next week. Wish me luck!
