Take that fat!

I engaged in the most intense cardio-kickbox class today. It was excruciating but exhilarating at the same time. I knew I was in trouble 15 minutes in when I thought I would pass out dead from exhaustion and the super peppy instructor shouted "You can do it! Only 45 more minutes!" Though I found myself searching desperately for an escape hatch, she was actually right I could do it. And I did.

In the end, I burned 700 calories! It was a super kick-off to my newest quest for fitness. Now, if only I can get the guts to do it again next week...

700 calories! I run myself into the ground, lift weights and drink diet shakes and I'm burning only 400 calories and I gained a pound! Guess those three chocolate cookies weren't a good idea.
