Working off Easter – Colleen At The Ridge
I thought I was pretty good last week. Went to Pilates and kickboxing at The Ridge Athletic Club. Went for walks and bike rides, and ate healthy, low fat, low-calorie foods (except for Easter brunch).
Annie came back from a week long vacation, and I realized that I really didn't push myself that hard. That's why I am continuing twice a week with her. I also found a friend who is about my workout level who is coming with me. We hold each other accountable, and have a friendly rivalry over who can work the hardest! Plus, it makes it quite affordable.
Back to Easter Brunch, I ate so much bacon that I had sodium shock (Collen diagnosis). That's what I think I love most about The Ridge. I told Annie and she said Holiday meals don't count. She says you have to live and enjoy life and food! Love that girl!
My greatest fear when I joined The Ridge is that they were going to use that gadget to pinch my fat on my arms and stomach...or weigh me. Annie asked if I wanted a body composition and I said no. She didn't push me, but did say it's a good way to follow your progress. You know how I know I am getting into shape and losing weight? My jeans fit!!!! They haven't since before my surgery. I mean they fit without a muffin top. I have some expensive jeans and was not willing to go up a size. I decided to order a smaller body instead of bigger jeans.
I am not going to lie, I have been snitching the little chocolate eggs that look like little footballs out of my kids Easter baskets. After yesterday's workout, I didn't feel even the littlest bit guilty about it!
