my body hurts!!!

rhett and i decided it was time for us to get back in shape. so, we joined la fitness. oh my gosh! i've worked out twice this week and i think my body is in SHOCK! i haven't done any type of physical activity (besides taking court on walks, holding a baby, playing with a baby, etc) since before i was pregnant with court. in other words...... it's been TOO long! so, we are going to try to make this a habit. hopefully, in a few weeks, the shock to my muscles will wear off. my goeal is to do one of those spin classes eventually. we'll see if i ever get there! 
i'm so proud of rhett - he is getting up to go work out at 5:30 in the AM so he doesn't miss any of his court time! such a great daddy! well, i'm off to "rest" my muscles..... on the couch. and i might even have a couple of m&m's. cuz... i think i deserve that after working out for 2 whole days, right?!?! :) wish us luck!

You go girl! I haven't seen the inside of a gym in forever. You and Court should come by the school sometime for lunch. The new teacher breakroom is the baby room. We'd love to see you guys!

I am so jealous! I pay every month for la fitness...for a boy in louisiana...wish they would transfer it while he's away! Talk about been a LONG, it's been YEARS!!!

I, too, need to do it! Have a margarita with your m&m's just for me! I miss you guys!

Love, Kim

Good for you, Ashley. I so hear ya about starting though. It's been 4:30am for me every morning for the past 3 months - training Monday thru Friday at LA Fitness with my trainer. Lost 76 lbs so far (3 months) so it's paying off and that's my only motivation to getting up that early. It's INSANE, really. Unfortunately, I still have another good 35-40 to go so it looks like I will be looking forward to more 4:30 mornings. It will eventually come off, I know. Funny how much faster it comes on than off.
I remember the first few days of working out though. I remember I felt like I couldn't even walk I was so sore. That 2nd day is always worse than the first. You go girl! Work it out!
