Another go at it

I attempted to begin this blog a few months ago after a hurricane kept me stuck inside one weekend and I stumbled upon a world of bloggers that I was really interested in.  I think I wrote 3 or 4 posts before it fell to the wayside.  I think part of the problem then was that I was thinking that my life is not really that interesting- would people really want to read about it?  But new year, another try.  I realize now that this blog is for me and that is enough of a reason to keep it up.  If other people eventually happen to read then great, but if not that’s fine too.  So, here it goes…

 

This morning I woke up and ate my pretty routine breakfast of fresh blueberries, strawberries and blackberries with vanilla Chobani, a sprinkle of vanilla almond crunch granola and a few walnuts.  I then went to the gym for my Friday sculpt class.  I used to never go to classes routinely besides a weekly yoga class.  I would go to occasional kickbox or weights classes when a friend would ask me to go with them or if the mood just struck.  But about 5 or 6 months ago I was not in the mood to do anything on my own in the gym so I went to a sculpt class on a Friday morning.  I haven’t missed a Friday since.  I love using free weight and this class is great and gives me ideas that I can use on my own throughout the rest of the week as well.  It also incorporates some cardio that is not just straight running like my body is probably used to.  Last night I also went to a random spin class.  I haven’t done a spin class in probably 2 years and I’ve only done it a handful of times in my life.  I don’t love spin because I like to go to classes where I will learn new workouts that I couldn’t do on my own and spin just doesn’t feel like the best work out to me.  But it was fun enough and I’m glad I did something physical yesterday because otherwise I probably wouldn’t have.

I just came home and had a peanut butter and jelly on to get some protein in within a half hour after my workout and now I need to shower before I run some errands.  I also started The Hunger Games yesterday and it is so compelling I can’t wait to read more.  I had no intention of reading this book even though I have heard so much about it.  But Nick received a book as a gift that he already had so he exchanged it for a copy of The Hunger Games.  Since I had just finished another book, The Violets of March that I read as part of the December Book Club on the PBFingers blog, I figured I’d give it a shot.  I’m so glad I did- it is captivating.  So that’s on the agenda if I have some extra free time before work too.  TGIF.
