Gym Rat

You may remember from a post a few months back that I was working with the ranch trainer, Caleb, 2-3 times per week in addition to my regular weekly Yoga and Zumba. I made huge fitness strides during that time and saw big changes in my cardiovascular health and the appearance of my midsection.

I am proud to say that the hard work has continued. I desperately miss my Cody yoga ladies, but have managed to find some yoga and Pilates based classes I love here in Orlando.

Jason and I joined the National Training Center here, where they train Olympic and Paralympic athletes. It's also a major physical rehabilitation center, so on any given day we could be sharing the facilities with world class athletes and people dealing with major disabilities. It's so awesome to see amazing inspiration - both physical and spiritual - in the place you work out.

Since returning from Europe I've continued my Caleb workouts 2-3 times per week, and the other three days I take classes - Yoga, Pilates, Zumba.

And after a lifetime of not understanding how people could really devote so much time to exercise, I've finally come to see the draw. I have more energy, I feel better, I sleep better, I can see the continued changes in my body.

Against all odds, I've become a gym rat at 30. How cool is that?
