bloggin' 'bout people....
Look! My friend Hilarie let me be the guest blogger on her site! It's a really riveting and interesting interview where I talk about how awkward my dog is just a little too much and you can read it here!
That was fun. I wish people wanted to ask me questions about myself more often. It is literally one of my favorite topics.
I've been good.
I finished up Insanity and yesterday was my first week of Asylum and Shaun T ... he kind of got mean.
Not mean. But ya know... he says he's giving you a 30 second break and then he's like "ya know what. I might say 30 seconds and it ends up being 10 seconds. DEAL WITH IT"
... and it hurts my feelings when you lie to me like that, Shaun T.
... I feel like I'm missing the old workouts a little too much to give a fair review. I'll let you know in another week or so
I WENT TO A CLASS WITH PEOPLE!
And also, I had decided that since I had completed freakin' Insanity that this would be a great confidence booster because obviously I'd be on a whole other level than those other suckers and grandma's in any given class.
So, I chose this class called Body Attack. It is a Les Mills class which is affiliated with Beachbody, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn about some of the product and also show off my mad skills.
HEY! GUESS WHAT SKILLS I HAVE? I'M REALLY GOOD AT GETTING SWEAT IN MY EYES AND BEING OUT OF BREATH.
Oh. My. GAWD, Becky. This was one tough cardio class to keep up with!
I mean I can't say I didn't get a good workout. I think I burned just shy of 500 calories in the hour, but there were times that I was like "why did I do this?!".
Something I've taken for granted in home workouts is that there aren't other people there which is really great because sometimes people are the worst.
But also- UGH, PEOPLE. Amirite? I just longed for my laptop and DVD's and no other people around who don't hear simple instructions because they are talking to their friend and then get in the way of someone else's workout!
But the instructor was FANTASTIC all be it- cheesey as gooddamn hell. He reminded me of that guy from Office Space with all the flair.
He was the nicest, most energetic, and essentially the flair guy from Office Space of group fitness classes.
But I would probably do the class again if I was in a FUCKING CARDIO YOUR BRAINS OUT mood anytime soon.
OMG, CAN WE TALK ABOUT SHAKEOLOGY?
At Super Saturday, a woman spoke who has Crohn's disease, but since she's started replacing one meal a day (on a 5 meal a day plan)- she's pretty much symptom free. Now that is freaking impressive to me. I mean losing weight is fine, but I believe so much in the healing powers of eating the right FOODS for you body and I love that she was able to quit some of her medications all from getting in the good shit in Shake-o!
Here, I think this guy gives
- I'm still not drinking coffee. I'm still having headaches so that's supposed to stop eventually- right? Or do I just have headaches from now on?
- SPORTS! In particular: THE WORLD CUP. We went out to watch the US/Portugal game and it was the most stressful experience of my life.
- No more Game of Thrones til March. So... what am I supposed to annoy people with by obsessively talking about now?
So anyway- I'll leave you with some pictures and shit that I posted throughout this last week.
