Just not feeling it with the walking, same with the eating. So put on a couple of pounds and now only 18 pounds lost.
Anyhow, joined an exercise class in our community centre for old folks!! Remember I live in an "Active Adult Community." So everyone is over a "certain" age. This class is held on a Tuesday and Thursday morning and it is FREE!!! It is sponsored by the government I think, I will look into that and see what I can find as it may be in other communities as well. It's to get older folk up and moving.
It is both seated and standing exercises and you do it at your own pace...............or so I thought!!! Lets just say despite the fact I am the youngest participant; other than the trainer, I am not the fittest one in the group..........I AM SO NOT THE FITTEST IN THE GROUP. Also the seated part of the exercises........well that's also a myth; we do, do a couple of seated exercises but they are mainly stood up. I was pooped after yesterday's and I felt pain in places I didn't know existed.
She wanted us to do jumping jacks at one point. I just looked at her and thought are you crazy.......but the woman opposite me who was probably in her 70's was doing them. Fast marches that woman was bloody jogging??? The woman next to me was as bad, I swear they are on steroids some of these little old ladies.....LOL
There were a couple of times I just wanted to sit down, but the steroid ladies were going as fast as ever, so I didn't dare. Now to be fair there are a number of participants who do sit down and do not do as much as the steroid ladies and do it at their own pace. It was a good workout and a very worth while programme. I will be going again, as it makes a change from walking and she concentrates on different parts of the body. Plus I need to see if I can get as fit as the steroid ladies!!!
