Brief Chicken Update

I've been eating like crap. I really need to get a hold on things.

I finally decided to join 24 hour fitness instead of Bally's. 24 is closer, larger and has better machines.

I worked out on Saturday for the first time in a while. It felt pretty good. I decided to got to a Step Aerobics class on Sunday. Oh my lord I had the worst shin splints of my life. Plus the lazy was doing all of these difficult steps that I didn't know. It was a good workout but I'm really out of shape and felt it. Unfortunately it doesn't look like there are any beginner classes so I might have to go back later once I have lost some weight. My size didn't really register until I got in a room with physically fit people.

I'm going to try Aerobics 101, Pilates (Glutes), Lifting (in the studio), and maybe the Yoga. My friend warned me that the Yoga class might not be good at the gym because a lot of times they will do advanced moves that beginners shouldn't do like torso bends. I guess I could check it out and see how it goes.

So my next major hurdle is trying to lift at least a couple times a week and watching what I eat.

Can you take a beginning aerobics class at your school? Maybe during lunch or something a few times a week? Just an idea...step can be intimidating if you haven't done it in a while.

Make sure you stretch your lower back really well afterwards too, I notice that step makes my lower back hurt sometimes (if I do it too many times in one week).

I'm at a work force training center. There is no physical ed classes here or I would be all over that.
