I woke up this morning bright eyed and bushy tailed (well, that’s a lie…that never really happens, but I try) ready to head to morning BodyPump class.
I made sure to check the schedule I keep posted on my fridge last night before going to bed and had everything ready so I could head out for the 8:30am class…or so I thought.
I got to the gym promptly at 8:00am, since we’re supposed to sign up for classes 30 minutes in advance, but when I asked the woman at the desk to sign up for pump, she looked at me a little funny?
Woman: “Aren’t you a little early, hun?” (<—which, FYI, I can’t stand when people call me “hun”)
Me: “Isn’t the class at 8:30? I checked my schedule?”
Woman: “Oh hunny (AHHH!!), you must have an old schedule. Pump doesn’t start until 9:15 on Thursdays now.”
I knew I should have picked up another schedule recently!!!
So since I now had an extra hour and 15 minutes to spare, I took my time getting ready in the locker room, then headed up for some cardio. I did a mish mash of work on the treadmill:
- 20 mins HIIT (20 seconds @ 9.0mph / 40 seconds @ 4.5mph)
- 10 mins walking @ 4.0mph with an incline of 10%
- 10 mins jogging @ 6.5mph
- 5 mins cool down
So in actuality, my extreme promptness worked out pretty well, and I got an awesome workout today. Hey, I’ll take it. Early bird gets the extra cardio!
The only downside to my early bird actions? I was 45 minutes later than planned, so I’m sure you can imagine that I was ravenous by the time I got home. My little Clif Z Bar pre-workout only held me over until about halfway through BodyPump, then the tummy grumbles started.
So I came home and quickly toasted an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin, and topped it with some pumpkin + PB + banana.
I love adding the pumpkin with my peanut butter because it really doesn’t change the taste all that much, it gives more “bulk” to the toast itself, AND I’m squeezing in extra veggies. It’s a win-win(-win)!
I also had to make a quick pit-stop on the way home for some coffee, which was then turned into my favorite hot cocoa coffee once I got home. Yummmmm.
Now I’ve gotta run and go get ready because I have a special “Girls Day” planned with my favorite ladies today!
*Just a reminder – in case you feel so inclined to give me your vote!*
Question for the Day:
What was the last time/scheduling “oops” that you made?
