Today was a pretty good day at the gym. My P90 book said it was time for shoulders and arms, but I did that on Monday so I just loaded up on some cardio. I was able to get into the dance room for 30 minutes and I kicked my own butt!! I spent 20 minutes on turns alone so to say I was dizzy is an understatement, haha. After that I did some kick exercises. I'm pretty sure my legs are going to KILL me tomorrow. Hey, no pain no gain right?

I was reading through the April issue of Fitness magazine today and it's a goooooood one. One thing that I found very interesting was there Simple Secrets to Total Body Confidence. They asked their readers to write letters to their own body. Umm AWESOME and inspirational! I will leave you with a few of my favs.
You are gentle, beautiful. Thank you for being there for me. You deserve a new pair of jeans, since you've kept me healthy while training for the half-marathon. -Maria Anter Rothenburger
Thank you for helping me beat breast cancer when the doctors gave me no chance. Thanks for letting me live out my dream job as a personal trainer. Just try to keep up with me, OK? Love you! -Nicki Jones
Your strong legs take me anywhere I need to go. When I think of how many miles I've walked over my lifetime, it would take me halfway around the world. Please stay energetic and healthy so I can be as mobile at 80 years as I was at 18. -Curlypow
