{DL} Kicking it up

09/23/15 - Wednesday
I have to admit, I was pretty much walking on air most of the morning after I found that number on the scale dropping more then I expected.
So I celebrated with 3 donuts.
NOOOO... Kidding... Never!
It was a fun day though to see the world celebrate the first day of Fall.
I don't think I see any other season with so much fanfare happening.
All the pictures of trees & vests & Starbucks fancy cups.
I'm down with this.
I went & had my usual Wednesday lunch date with my hubs.
It's funny because when I walk into that Subway, they don't even ask - they just pull out the wheat flatbread & start warming up the veggie patty.
its like Cheers - only healthier.
I took clothes with me to work because I was going to a class right when I jetted outta this prison.
Where was I headed?
My friend was teaching a free Turbo Kick class & I wanted tocheck it out.
After all, I do love my kickboxing classes.
& she was offering this one for free.
How do you not take advantage of free?
I love this lady too - she was my former Jazzercise instructor - she is an amazing massage therapist - she's actually MY Beachbody coach & she is just everything special in one little package. She has the best outlook on life & encouragement & positivity. 
I want to be her when I grow up - even though I think I'm a year older then her :)
The class was interesting.
It wasn't like my Les Mills or regular kick boxing.
It was more like aerobics with 'aerobic' type kickboxing in it.
You gotta remember - I have my black belt - I'm serious punches & kicks.
So while it wasn't exactly what I was expecting, it was still definitely a calorie burn.
& a sweat fest.
& it was great when I got home & my workout was done for the day.
I could go straight into making dinner or cleaning the house.
Actually what happened was I went & played with the dog.
I'm sweaty & I wore out Harvey Dent... a good day!
Life is good.
