Sweat and Steal


How time flies when you have a new addition to the family.

Blogging your latest adventures or misadventures really is not at the top of the priority list. So, for all you followers (all three of you) I apologize.

One of the first things that we have purchased as a family, was a family pass to the gym. The wife signed us up for “Sweat and Steal” course that’s run weekly. During this time we can put the youngster in their Day Care and do this class.

The first time we went, I was thinking how hard can this REALLY be, there are 15 women from the age of 25 to great grandmother and a handful of guys. There are twenty stations where you do different cardio or weight activities for one minute then switch with 15 seconds in between.

After one hour I surprised to find out how tired I was, as it’s an activity that you only get out what you put it. Apparently I may have put in too much because the following two days I could barely lift my son above shoulder height.

Now I dread Wednesdays… But it is sure not as hard as many martial arts workouts I’ve had over the years. Plus, if the truth is told.. I’m starting to get a little out of shape..
