Please tell me it gets easier!(4 Posts)
So this morning I finally managed to get my bum down to the local leisure centre and do a workout class.
I'm not overweight, but I am unfit, and wobbly. I've not had a baby or anything. I've just become...complacent.
Anyway I'm a little bit awkward when it comes to things like this because I think I won't know what to do or where to go. But I got in there and worked out where everyone was getting their mats and weights from etc. It was a leg bum and tum class. I was horribly out of time doing the step thing and was a bit embarrassed as everyone else seemed to be getting it right. I didn't even have 'proper' workout gear...I was wearing leggings and a Nirvana t-shirt.
I was crap at the crunch thingies. I was ok at the lunges. I think.
Anyway I did the full hour. Then on the way out I went into the loo and vomited
Still feel really sick now. How did I let myself get so unfit?!!
Anyway one class will make zero difference I know so I will be going back. Is zumba a bit easier to get into? I thought I'd come out all endorphined-up and buzzy...instead I was sweaty, shaky and sick!
If you've gone from 0 to a full hour, that is quite a lot in one go! Maybe try easing your body back into excercose a little more gently?
Well done for giving it a go, now you've been motivated to start don't give up!
In those kinds of classes, if I think I need a break or am finding something really difficult I'll either stop for a minute (I time myself!) or try to do an easier version of the move.
It does get better!
Thanks Paperdove. I didn't think it'd be too bad as I thought of myself as quite 'active' really- I always do 15000-20000 steps a day and run up stairs etc... clearly I've not been active enough!
Going to keep it up. Not for weight loss exactly but a change in body shape would be good. Although pounds off would obviously be a bonus.
