    I love this post!

    The first time I took a spin class, I left halfway through because I found it SO hard. I swore I’d never go back, but when I got home, I read something in a magazine that said “try something 8 times, and then if you hate it, quit, but at least you’ll know you tried.” So with that in mind, I went back to spin class and it became my favorite workout. I cut that quote out and put it on my mirror in 2009 and it’s still there today.

    My personal motto is “if it were easy it wouldn’t be called hard work” and I truly believe you just need to keep at it even when it feels impossible!

    Good job with body pump and spinning. You’re pretty awesome!

      Love that! That’s a good policy. Try it more than once then decide. It’s hard to know if you will like something the first go around.

      Thanks for the comment Rebecca! Glad to see you back in the blogging world. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow you’ve been working it! I’ve been lazier lately. Still walking a lot but not doing as much weight lifting as I’d like.
