Just wanted to share, i have not had chocolate, sugery snacks or candy since surgery 12/31/07 and thankfully i dont care. I went to my strength building class saturday morning for 7am, following that class is one called "turbo step intervals" taught by a teacher that i totally avoid because his classes look soo tough, the people in them look ultra in shape and he just plain intimidates me. I decide to stay for his class after doing a vigorous 55 minute work out mostly consistenting of weight lifting, squats, lunges (not much cardio). That second class was unfreakingbelievable and i could do it. Okay so my coordination level was a bit off as they turned/twisted and scaled over the stepper but besides that i did the rest quite well and irregardless of my lack of coordination i kept moving the entire time. My point to all of this is the instructor said "on behalf of valentines day I want to give you a stronger heart so I am going to work you really hard" and it struck me I dont miss the candy i want the stronger heart i want to be able to exercise like the other people in this class and i will never be intimidated to take another class from this guy again, as a matter of fact i will be back for his thursday class. try something new, mix up your exercise regime and dont ever feel bad about indulging in valentine, easter or all the other stupid reasons these candy manufacturers try to appeal to us to eat their unheatlhy candy. I had company for dinner that nite, i decided to be creative (for me creative) with a dessert, i made sf cheesecake pudding and made individual parfaits layering berries (strawberries, blueberries and blackberries) along with the pudding topped off with sf coolwhip and it was enjoyed by all. keep strong, move, sign up for different types of exercise, mix it up, you will be amazed at the results, by the way i lost 2 more pounds and am securely under that 150 mark which eluded me for 4 months.
