A Thorough Pasting!
Drumroll! This morning, after a six and a half (the half a year is very important) hiatus I participated in a Bodyattack class. I really enjoyed the change and pushing it hard enough so that my heart was up between my ears at the end of some of the tracks, it was hammering so hard.
The thrill of the class was being able to nail the tuck jumps. I've always sucked at any sort of jumping and what do you know, one-two-three - JUMP! I banged those suckers out like a beauty! I thought of Shar as I was doing these, thought she would be proud that I ventured out of my comfort zone. I then did a twenty minute run afterwards on the treadmill, alternating speeds every five minutes - this, after Attack, was really tough but I went home drenched in sweat and feeling rather triumphant! I have to add that I even did three sets of leg presses - that was about all the weights I felt like at this stage.
I've just had a fantastic breakfast of Naturoo Kangaroo Sausages (da bomb!), grilled tomatoes and a slice of this heavily seeded bread I found in a corner of the supermarket. I packed in some veggies this morning so I can have "lazy girl oats for lunch". Chop up some nectarines and peaches and throw in some natural yoghurt and I'm good to go for the day. I hate having to buy lunch - BYO is more my scene, even if it, gulp, means packing it in Tupperware!
PS - love this image today - I laugh every time I read it :)
