Only one month 'til my birthday and I'm feeling so much better physically than I have in years and years due in no small part to my wonderful trainer at the YMCA of Boston (Waltham branch) Parker and the folks at Vtrim who have guided me toward a future where I control my food intake and it doesn't control me!
I am REALLY enjoying working out and exercising at the Y! I can hardly believe I am saying that but it is true and I can see the results, slowly but surely, on my body. There is some definition in my arms, I have collar bones again, my balance is much better! Parker mentioned to me last week that I have come a long way and my progress in our workouts is a steady arrow UP the graph! : ) All good!
May is going to be MAY-niac month for me as I try to fit in as much exercise and walking as I can before my birthday at the beginning of June! I'm sooo thrilled that Vtrim has offered me 12 more weeks of their classes which I start tomorrow night! : ) Next week is the last online Vtrim class of my original 12 weeks and I cannot believe how much I've learned in that short amount of time. These 12 weeks of classes have truly changed my life... why else would I be going around the office and my house singing... "I'm a MAY-niac" from Flashdance!
As an ode to the YMCA, Vtrim, and Parker, my great trainer, below is my version of Flashdance "Maniac"! You may want to click on the YouTube video at the bottom of this post before you begin to read so you can sing along while reading the new lyrics! *grin*
PS: If this song gets stuck in your head, a tried and tested cure is 60 minutes on the treadmill with the incline UP! : )
