I think so! I first did Step Areobics about 10 years ago. Gosh saying 10 years ago kind of makes me feel old. Ok I’m only 32- I’m not old. I have mixed feelings about Step areobics, it’s a great workout but it makes me so sore. No pain, no gain right? I def feel it.
The Y that I’m a member offers the class several times a week. I decided- ok I’m going to give it a go and just do it. I mean I’ve done it before, it’ll be fine. It’s just a plastic step! aka tripping mechanism. Wow the Step totally took my breath away! It was amazing! Unfortunately I missed the next couple of weeks due to a sinus infection and “baby sabotage”. Yes, you read that right- “baby sabotage”. E’s nap schedule is out of whack so I go workout when he’s awake. Is that bad? He totally nixes my plans be working out or going shopping- it happens.
I was able to make it back this week and boy am I totally feeling the love from Robyn (instructor) a day later! Which I must tell you I’m going back today for more torture.
Love it! NOT!
We used the bar to do some arm work and then afterwards we did abs. Oh abs how I loathe thee.. I’ve had 2 c-sections so my abs are not strong. But I’m working on them. We used the excercise balls, which I love because you can’t cheat yourself. Did some planks, push-ups and roll-outs on it.
(Thank you for keeping me honest-balls)
By the end of the class I had burned 543 calories in 50 minutes. I’d say that’s a successful class. I plan to continue going to this class because the instructor is so inspiring and a great person. She has an awesome weight-loss story. Hopefully with her help I too will have an awesome weight-loss story one day soon.
If you’ve noticed my green button on my site- I am a member of the Mamavation Sistahood. Mamavation is a awesome online community that helps motivate women to work towards a healthier life for ourselves and our families. Each Monday I will have a post dedicated to my progress. I hope that in every post I will be able to announce weight loss, but if that’s not the case I will be ok with it. It took time to gain it so it will take time to loose it. I just have to be patient.

Right now I am participating in the Mamavation 2 Week Challenge- This is week two and I’m happy to announce that after one week I dropped 4lbs.
