I procrastinated long enough and finally renewed my gym membership. Sigh. Not sure if that was money well spent. I used to like going to step aerobics, but apparently that's not a popular class anymore and it's only offered one day a week. I went to a Zumba class instead and that was a disaster. I've said before that I'm no Martha Stewart. Well it turns out, I'm no Shakira either. My hips don't move that way. Plus I'm so uncoordinated! I just can't do any of the steps. I try to get my feet to follow along and my arms are off. I try to get my arms to follow along and me feet are lost. It doesn't help that I have two left feet anyway. So no more Zumba classes for me.
I went to the step aerobics class this week. I'm certainly out of practice and my calves hurt like crazy for a few days afterward! I also started using my elliptical again, although I first had to remove a thick layer of dust. I went for a two mile hike over the weekend, too.
Getting started on a big goal like this is always the hardest part for me. I've been inactive for such a long time. Right now, I'm just trying to go from not being active at all to getting up and moving. I'm taking baby steps at the beginning. Next week I start my interval training!
