I Danced Up a Mountain in Cape Town

Well folks, it was a two-shower kind of day!  I survived my second BodyPump class today at the gym, with my friend Ashley.  I liked this instructor MUCH better.  I’m not sure if it was partially because I was in front of the room and I could hear the instructions better, or what .. but I really appreciated her style and motivation.  Apparently she is a favorite of many.

After the class ended, we decided to sneak in 20 minutes on the dreadmill so I chose the ‘Hike Cape Town, South Africa’ map video, and I’m pretty sure it was trying to kill me.  It bumped up my elevation to 12.5 … and so to make my jelly legs work properly I had to utilize my iPhone playlists of Christian music and started bee-boppin’ to Carman (circa 1980 probably).  I was a dancing fool on that thing, and of course Ashley took a pic.  This is me being brave and posting it on the internet, as-is, side-view.  I must be crazy.

And in other news, I’ve tried a few new things lately (other than gym classes). For someone with SED like me, this is huge. I tried a new Special-K Protein Cereal.  It was blah.  Seriously blah.  It was not impressive in the least, and very bland.  I did not even finish the stuff, I probably could have if I really needed to, but I did not.  And for someone like ME to say it is bland, you know it must be bad.  

I also tried a meal replacement Wildberry Smoothie at the gym called Energy Rush or something like that.  I drank it before my workout last Thursday as well as this morning.  Both times I was pleased and will likely order it again.   Funny thing is, my boys liked that smoothie too and they kept stealing sips.

You know what else I tried new? Walnuts!  Well, I had tried them one time before and I did not like them at all.  I introduced all kinds of nuts into my diet a couple of years ago, but could not really get into walnuts at all.  So I decided to give them another try.  Nope.  Still hate them.  Oh well.

Tomorrow’s Adventure?  Yoga.  Ugh, yoga.  Yep, Yoga.  I totally stink at yoga, and I have no coordination or balance whatsoever, but my medical massage therapist told me to try yoga, so I shall do just that.  Thank goodness my friend Mallory is going with.  I need the accountability.  So maybe tomorrow I’ll blog about my downward dog … or perhaps I’ll write about my love affair with pecans.

As always, make champion choices,

  1. I don’t have a problem with texture and “I” can’t stand the texture of Special K cereal, especially after it’s sat in milk for a while. So as far as I’m concerned you are a brave woman!
