It's no surprise that I'm usually pretty bored and lonely while Marshall is working.
I have never been into working out mostly because I have a hard time motivating myself. The apartment complex has a gym and they offer a few free classes. I went to a body toning class and the instructor convinced me to come back for yoga on Saturday morning. Marshall had to work, so I had no excuse not to. I went and am good thing I did!
After the class the instructor and a few girls from class were going hiking. I didn't know you could hike in Philadelphia but there is a huge park, Fairmount Park, pretty close by that they go to. I tagged along for my first adventure with my new work out friends.
It was me, the instructor Audrey who kicked my butt, Linda who has a 13 year old son who kicked my butt, and Eliza who is a few years older than me who kicked my butt.
They all kicked my butt into shape.
In the woods and in the gym.
This park is crazy. I had no idea where we were or what was going on. There was a restaurant with a wedding going on, boys jumping off trees, families having a BBQ and my new friend Linda bought a bucket of popcorn half way through at the snack bar.
She is hilarious. Like, I want to hang out with her everyday.
It might surprise you all but I have a hard time hanging out with people I don't know.... but I'm so glad that I went. And I am happy to say that I look forward to going to cardio boot camp class this week because I know I have 3 friends who will be there to motivate me.
