Magnolia’s 6-Month Challenge: Day 7 – Hold Your Stomach Muscles In
Posted Jan 13 2010 4:39am
That’s what Joy-elle kept saying as we grunted and groaned through another session of “Stretch & Tone”. A cleverly disguised Yoga class with a name that does not reveal the pain you will feel after it’s done.
I did take solace in the fact that the average age in the class is over 50. Joy-elle could well be a granddaughter for a couple of the ladies there. Easily my own daughter.
Speaking of. My daughter was next to me during the class – having her own trouble. One would think that a 16 year old would mop up in these types of physical adventures, but, not so. She did her share of grunting and groaning too, which I enjoyed nearly as much as being able to snatch a few moments of rest on the Yoga mat.
Spinning class is on the menu today. I am NOT looking forward to this. Another perky 20-something telling me to “have fun with it” does not excite me this morning. Especially when you consider I overslept due to the fact I stayed up entirely too late last night. I’m a bit disgusted with myself. But, the day is moving on whether I change my attitude or not, so I think I’ll change it and get with the program.
I may wimp out and head to the treadmills and leave my 16 year old daughter to Spinning Class. She can “have fun with it” for the both of us.
