Exercise. The eternally unchecked activity on my to do list.
Well, recently, myself and Alison here at the studio have decided to make it a point to finally check it off the list. And not just once, but TWICE a week. Crazy, I know.
Now, let me inform you that although Alison and I do take pride in our appearance, we are not even the slightest bit close to “gym girls.” We like our salted chocolate chip cookies from The Smile (which we split of course. Half of a cookie doesn’t count, right??), and we will take a dinner party over going to the gym any day. But, you see, Alison and I are about the same age – early twenties – and we have both reached a point in our lives where we are realizing that our bodies are changing. The days of our teenage youth have officially left us and it’s time to become healthier versions of ourselves.
Much like many other ladies and gents, we find the gym to be a tad boring. So, we decided it would be a great idea to join in on some local kickboxing classes after work. Let me tell ya, kickboxing is no joke. In the simplest of terms – we get our asses kicked. BUT, we are having so much fun doing so! I genuinely look forward to taking down that punching bag every week, and I have already noticed a difference in how I look and feel. My skin is brighter, my thoughts are clearer, and I am more motivated to make healthy choices in all other aspects of my life. This exercise stuff seriously works! Who would have thought?
Suggestions for other fun ways to get fit are always welcome – tell us about your go to!
