I just did my first one on Saturday and I LOVED it!!!

for me, my upper upper upper thighs on the insides/backs were the most sore, and still kind of are, come to think of it... but i'm going again tomorrow anyway!

I love Pilates! I'm glad I found it years ago and that is the one thing I have done over the years that I really like. I tried spinning once, I didn't like it, but maybe it was the teacher, I don't know. Maybe I will give it a shot again in May or June.

I love spinning; my sister is a certified instructor and she has bikes in her house, so three times a week we have a private spin class. It's kind of awesome. Anyway, give it a couple classes and the bike will stop hurting your hooha so much. Or you can invest in padded shorts, but the pain really does go away fairly quickly, if you keep at it on a regular basis.

Well I made it through Pilates...not too bad...tmw I will do spin again...I must break my routine...so away I go!!!

Good for you! It's good to do things that are different. I haven't tried it yet but plan to- worried about my own Hooha!

I did a Cardio Kickboxing class on Monday for the first time. I loved it BUT we had to do some jump rope and I did more of it than I should. It was jumping rope at Easter 2008 that caused my plantar fasciitis drama that I've been coping with for the last year. Now that I've lost some weight the foot problems have lessened but apparently not enough to be able to do the kickboxing class. Bummer. I haven't been able to work out for a day because my poor feet needed recovery time.

Bindersbee...that stinks..hopefullly your foot will get better! I wish we had a kickboxing class..I would love to try that! It seems like it would be really fun.

I'll let you know how the hooha feels after todays class..this will be the 2nd one and there was a day of rest in between so hopefully...it won't be as bad as the first day!

I've always wanted to try spinning, but yeah, the sore girlie bits have kept me from trying it. Pilates is great. I actually haven't done Pilates in about 14 years. I was a dancer in my former life, and Pilates is an important part of dance.

Well day 2 wasn't as bad..but my legs are sure getting a workout!! I did enjoy the pilates...it's just amazing how strong the people are who have been doing it a while!

I love pilates! I just started this Bollywood dance workout class, it's amazing!! My inner thighs are burning from all the funky "squat, shake it, and jump" dance moves. I don't think I've ever laughed and smiled so much during an INTENCE workout.

I love spinning, although I haven't been in a while.

My hoo-ha always gets sore the first couple of times I take my bike out after the winter! Ouch!

Can I just say I like the word hooha? I have never heard that before lol

My gym has a spinning class that they call Reaction Cycling and I really want to give it a try soon. I literally just started going to the gym last week so I think I should work my way up to it a little, at least another couple weeks. I never thought of the hoo-ha situation. Ouch!

I seem to have lots of euphemisms...I've been calling it a hooha since my girls were small...don't worry they know what it's really called. : )

I'm going to go to spin again tmw...I like it even though it's hard.

This weekend I discovered..I'm old...I went to a concert with my daughter and I still can't hear well out of both ears...not to mention I'm bruised and sore from being in the "pit" with her!

On the plus side...I was sweating so much...I think I lost 3 pounds of water weight! LOL!
