Remember my friend Jessica from the other night of froyo eating? Well, she convinced me that I needed to get back into pump and go to a 6 a.m. class with her.
This morning at 5:38 I texted her to see if she was still going to go to pump. I crossed all of my fingers and toes (and Billy’s toes while he was sleeping) that she would respond ‘no….let’s go next week.’ Heaven forbid I find my own personal motivation to go lift heavy things, I NEED someone to go with me.
She texted back, ‘yep.’
I hurt now.
Pretty sure we did infinity burpees and I wanted to cry a little. The body pump at my gym is different than most other places. The specific teacher makes up the routine that we do and it changes from week to week. Today the instructor incorporated a bunch of plyometrics in between sets that made my heart feel like it was going to explode.
I am SO glad that I rolled out of bed and went this morning. Sometimes it is really hard to get out of routine with our workouts. Our body adapts to what we are used to and so we NEED to switch things up every now and then and confuse our muscles (I know that sounded like a lecture to you but really I am just lecturing myself so that I get back in the habit of trying new things).
I haven’t had a burn like I did today in a long time and I love tricking my body, muhahahaha.
I thought it was pretty crazy that 12 squats made my legs burn on fire, yet just a few weeks ago I ran a marathon and they were fine. Hmmmmm.
Billy had to borrow my blow dryer because he has an important photoshoot today. Okay, that’s a lie, he just needed it for a car thing he is working on so i am sporting a sweaty/greased back stylish look today.
Once again this is one of those instances that I will spare you the picture. I am sure you can imagine a sweaty ponytail with a few hair horns near my side burns.
Last randomness of the day: My sis got us shirts to wear tonight to the movies.
I convinced Billy to come see the premiere of Breaking Dawn with us tonight (neither of us have read the books or seen the movies, this should be interesting). I asked my students what team I should be on (edward or jacob) so that I can kind of have some idea of what is going on in the movie. They told me Team Jacob….is that right one?
What was the last thing (fitness wise) you did out of your normal routine or comfort zone?
Are you a burpee fan?
What is the ABSOLUTE best movie treat that I should take with me tonight (that will also help keep me awake)?
