After two weeks out, you guys, I gotta be honest: It was TOUGH to drag myself back into the gym. I went through the full cycle of excuses, from “maybe I’ll just run a couple miles on the treadmill and ease back into it,” to “well, it’s a busy day, do I really have the time for a whole AbsoluteFIT session?”
But I did it. I signed up and I showed up yesterday, and there was Jackie, who — as I believe I’ve mentioned before — does. not. play. Oh my gosh, y’all — you know when you get sore in muscles you didn’t realize you had? Yeah. THAT’S what happens in a Jackie workout. And it’s AWESOME.
Within about thirty seconds of starting the warmup, I was like: YEsssssssssss, this is what I’ve been missing! I swear, your very cells come alive in AbsoluteFIT. It felt SO GOOD. I was so glad I’d gone — and I did it again this morning!
The summer has been crazy, but with my kids starting back to school tomorrow, I’ll be able to plan my workouts better — and I’m more than ready for that. I’m looking forward to it!
