Rubie-sue's Journal, 25 January 2013

So last night as my DH first boxing class with me. Very exciting!! And I can't stop smiling about it. Both for the fact that he is actually doing it, but also in the fact that he realized how hard of a class it is. Everyone knows that I work out, but I feel that folks don't realize how hard I work out. If you look at me you'd think that a casual workout would cause me to sweat, turn me red, make my heart race, and exhaust me. After an hour of constant movement that includes jacks, mountain climbers, high kicks, boxers bounce, running in place, and bag work he was spent. Then we moved on to ab work, and okay you did get to be still while holding your plank, and then finally a stretch. All he kept muttering while we were lying on our mats at the end was "shit...holy shit Honey..shit...". To this I could not stop giggling. So I asked how he liked it and he said "hard, very hard...and crap you're in amazing shape to do this". Again so nice to be recognized for the workouts you do!! Love him!!

I am still smiling today, and can't wait for him to do the Push-Up Crawl for three laps in the Warrior Workout class next Saturday. I know I'll be grining from ear to ear!


Working out with your spouse/partner is a great feeling is it? Adds a whole dimension of fun to the process. Glad you're able to enjoy it too!

Nimm, I was surprised how much I did like it. I normally do not like working out with others. I just knew how much he'd like these classes, and he needs to start doing more than just walking. His weight loss has stalled so time to kick it up a bit. I will admit I did feel a bit self-conscious until I was absorbed by the rhythm, the movement, and my breathing pace. This I know will pass.

That is awesome. I was leary about working out with my hubby, but find that it makes me increase my intensity and I actually get a better workout! I also liked hearing you are in great shape to be able to do this.
