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,
