After spending the last three mornings lollygagging around the house, waiting to get my workout in for the day, I must say that today’s 5am wake-up call was not only welcomed, but it was enjoyed.
Go ahead, you can say it. I’m a little crazy.
I started my morning off with a quick 2 mile run on the treadmill (7.0mph pace) before heading down to BodyPump. Although my muscles were definitely enjoying the class, my ears definitely were not (no no, don’t worry, the grunter wasn’t there). Our instructor whipped out an old release (Release 56!) which goes back about 6 years ago…
Did anyone else realize that BodyPump was even around 6 years ago? Talk about a trend that really caught on!
All of the tracks on this release seemed so slow, and I had a really hard time keeping my energy up and feeling “pumped” like I usually do. The only song that in this release that I was excited to hear was the classic, “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” by C&C Music Factory.
This song totally, 100% brings me back to middle school and hanging out with my friends in the basement of my parents’ house, making up dances that were almost entirely made up of the running man.
Today’s class just further proved the fact for me that music definitely makes an impact on my workouts!
Monday’s breakfast was so good that I just had to bring it back again today…
And in case you’re thinking that these photos looks familiar to you, that’s because they probably do.
I’m recycling them from Monday.
A couple quick things before I scoot out this morning…
**I’ll be choosing the winner of the 479 Popcorn Giveaway this afternoon, so you only have a few hours left to get your entries in!
**Many of you have asked me to recap my panel discussion on Negativity that I did this past weekend at HLS. It’s coming soon, I promise. But for now, you can head on over to Healthy Living Blogs to see the slide show that we used to help us out with the “techy” side of things.
**I’ve been meaning to tell you all…last Thursday, I was featured over at Fitness Magazine as the “Featured Fit Blogger We Love!” I was so excited to share it with you all, but the craziness of HLS caused me to forget about it. Thanks, Fitness Magazine!
