I've been taking Cardio Barre classes, once or twice a week, since October. I'm not gonna lie.... I hate them. That said, I always feel great for the rest of the day after I take one, and they really are great exercise, so I keep it up. I've stuck with the Beginner Level classes (except for the one time, on my second visit to Cardio Barre, when I accidently took the advanced class, and I almost lost my very life), which are hard enough, but I had a goal for myself that I wanted to willingly take the Advanced Class again, and live to tell the tale. Yesterday, I took the Advanced Class, and I think I did pretty well! I left feeling very proud of myself, and as soon as I got home, I put a bottle of Champagne in the fridge. I mean, my chunky, middle aged body kept up with all of those skinny, sinewy, 22 year olds in the Advanced Class, which I think is cause for celebration!

Hubby had a great day himself, so he had reason to be joyous too! And of course he was proud of me "leveling up" in Cardio Barre.... he knows, all too well, how challenging this whole Cardio Barre thing has been for me. After dinner, we had a Champagne Toast. At first sip, we both kind of made faces. That first sip of Champagne is a doozy! Remember, I still have some residual issues with both white wine and carbonated beverages, which explain my Champagne issues.

One more thing of note: I made a Broccoli, Ham and Pasta Salad for dinner. It had half a head of radicchio in it. The radicchio didn't bother me at all! I think I'm on the verge of being able to claim that I have conquered radicchio!
