when she comes here on her visits, she's able to continue her routine at the local curves outlet. this month, they're accepting donations to benefit breast cancer research - for $10, you get a punchcard good for ten workouts. she donated $20 and gave the cards to me and the teen, and we had our first session last week.
see how excited we were? heh.
MIL had given the staff a heads-up that we were coming, and she brought home the questionnaire and waivers for us to fill out so we could be ready to work when we got there. we got right into the measurements after turning in our forms.
finally, it was time to get our sweat on. our "trainer" showed us how to work the machines, and as much as we had giggled and guffawed over the whole thing, we were both super sweaty by the end of our first circuit. it's literally a circle of machines that work various parts of the body, with a cardio interval in between each one.
as MIL looked on proudly, we ended up doing three rounds of the machines. this one was particularly challenging for me:
lastly, we got to do a nice stretching routine that felt pretty great after the resistance training we'd just done.
we signed up for our next session before leaving, and left with scannable membership cards in hand.
MIL is in town for one more week, so we'll probably get in for at least a couple more sessions.
now i'm wondering how hard you've been laughing at this post. it's cool, i can take it.
