Working Out

Wow...I haven't blogged in a month and a half...crazy. I know that often when people stop blogging for any extended length of time it's usually because they have fallen off the wagon. Thankfully, this is not the case here. I've been kicking butt at the gym and just been too busy to blog!

I've been doing tons of Kangoo. I even had the opportunity to take my friend's 14 year old daughter with me and she loved it! I've lost somewhere around 16 pounds since starting Kangoo...after a year long plateau. I love my bouncy shoes!

I burn somewhere between 800 and 1200 calories per hour doing Kangoo. I use a heart rate monitor during each class and get a report like this after class that shows the levels of activity as well as my calorie burn. This was a 960 calorie class.

And this is my trainer, Tania, climbing the rope. She is AMAZING and so inspiring! She is totally my Jillian. I take several of her classes, Kangoo being my favorite, but I also do boot camps, Tabata, BOSU, etc.

This morning I'm going to the studio to try a Piloxing class. I've never done Piloxing but it's a cross between Pilates, boxing, and ballet. They're having a guest trainer to teach this - it's a master class and I'm a teeny bit nervous (it looks pretty intense) but I think it will be fun.

Tonight I'm doing something I haven't done in probably 20 years - roller skating! My gym group is having a get together at a skating rink for a fun and active night out.

Gotta run...have to finish my protein shake and get to the gym. :-)
