Losing Weight, Part III
These bitches are serious.
Before I begin, let me digress. I hate classes. Classes are great for people that have coordination. But I tend to be turning left while everyone turns right, if you know what I mean. I cannot move my arms and legs at the same time without falling down. I have fallen off an elliptical. Twice. I read Cosmopolitan in my 8th grade gym class. I have not a single bit of coordination.
So I tend to roll my eyes whenever anyone tells me about the fabulous workout they are getting by taking a class. These are not my people.
So when I found out that I won a package of three months of unlimited classes at The Dailey Method, my immediate reaction was complete ingratitude. There was no way that I was going to make use of this package. When I went to the website, I found out that I could get childcare for as low as $5 a class and they had free parking.
Wasn't I just complaining about how I needed to amp up my weight loss? I was a little over four months away from my daughter's second birthday. I could no longer actually call these extra pounds baby weight.
So I decided to throw myself into The Dailey Method. I scheduled myself up for three classes a week on top of my twice-weekly training sessions. Five times a week. I hadn't regularly worked out five times a week since 2009. But if I wanted my old body, then I was going to have to go back to my old ways.
I am in the middle of my 11th week and can say that I love it. You don't need coordination to master The Dailey Method. You do need the ability to give 100% focus during the 60 minute class so that you can practice your form and breathing. I am in such great shape and my stamina is amazing. I am so glad that I gave The Dailey Method a shot.
PS. If you don't live near Bucktown, don't despair. They are opening a second location in Lincoln Park this fall.
