it’s time for a little change-up here on the blog. and it’s about time. time to get my fanny back in the gym that is. this move has been a long time coming, with the initial start date intended for august 1st. but better late than never. i’ve signed up for classes at orange theory which has a three-prong fitness philosophy: endurance, strength, and power. did you know that after the age of 40 we lose 8 percent of our muscle mass each decade? which leads to decreased muscle strength, problems with mobility, and decreased activity levels. and who wants that?! my mother always told me that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (i’m pretty sure she was quoting benjamin franklin) but she was right, yet again. so it’s back to the gym i go, and i couldn’t be happier. because exercise is just as good for the mind as it is for the body. for now, i’ll stick to the orange theory workout and work my way up to five times a week. then in a month or two, i’ll add on a spin class and pilates reformer. i’ll be sure to check in with you now and then, depending on your interest in my fitness journey. maybe a few of you will join me and we can compare notes! one thing is for certain, there’s a whole new world of fashion to conquer. you didn’t think i’d show up at the gym in ratty sweatpants, did you? no,no, i’m sporting some new duds that are pretty darn cute. and practical. of course, i’m sharing my resources with all of you lovely ladies! and let me know your thoughts about adding a fitness segment to the blog. i always love to hear from you.
