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 :)

You're such a cardio queen. Good on you for "attacking" it.

Hi Liz,

love the Chinese lessson :-) and am VERY impressed with your effort on the tuck jumps. I just suck at them. I come about 2cms off the floor. Its embarassing. Oh and BTW I'm still a take-it-from-home girl and therefore eat out of Tupperware. Its too expensive not to.

:-) Magda

Was it the new release, I think you are ahead of us here in Perth, maybe a week so you may have launched?
You HAVE to do the new one!!! I did it at the QW on Sunday (although I had to substitute tuck jumps with straight jumps, knees bang the belly if you get me!)and it is soooo cool.

I'm gonna launch it in 2 weeks and can't wait!

Good on ya for mixing it up, we GFI's can get so programme fit in the ones we teach that to mix it up is a real challenge for the bod.
