I am kind of obsessed with exercise these days. I usually work out 5-6 times/week, usually 1-3 hrs/day. I have come a long way health-wise, but I have a way to go. I just try to channel Fergie and be "up at the gym, just workin' on my fitness". Here is a brief list of my current gym-related favorites:
  • Favorite classes: Body Sculpt, Aqua Abs, or Aqua Aerobics
  • Favorite instructors: Colton, Brooke, or Monique
  • Favorite exercises: group exercise classes or elliptical; used to be swimming. I also like weight lifting
  • Favorite workout song-artists (I couldn't limit it just to songs): Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, PCD. Anything with a fast and catchy beat, really.
I am really kind of crazed about the workout thing lately. For example, today I went to the gym at noon and didn't leave until 3. I went to a deep stretch/pilates class (actually a yoga class in disguise, and I was annoyed because I despise certain types of yoga and this is one), went swimming, and then went on the elliptical. I want to go back tonight, but am not sure whether or not I will.

Part of me wonders if this is healthy. Actually, most of me does. Am I just trading in one obsession (food) for another (exercise)? Is this all one big excuse so I can eat what I want (sometimes it feels like it), and if so, is that ok (provided I still get enough healthy stuff too)? Lots to work through on this. If anyone has thoughts or insights, please throw in your $0.02. Maybe eventually we'll scrape together a couple bucks and can go for ice cream. Oh, um, wait...


  1. Have you tried Pilate? That is my favorite :)

  2. I have tried pilates and I like it. There is a class called PiYo that I really like too. It mixes Pilates and Yoga and, best of all, happens to music. I should try to go back there; I just don't go there that often.
