At lunchtime today, I took a workout break and headed to the gym with my dad. We had big plans for our afternoon workout.
I am just a little bit in love with BodyPump and have missed the class so much ever since we moved to Ocala. I took BodyPump multiple times a week when we lived in Orlando and since BodyPump is nowhere to be found in Ocala, I miss it terribly. Luckily my parents’ gym offers the class. We’re all members of the same gym chain, so I am able to use their gym for free when I am in town!
I took it easy today and used lighter weights during the songs that focused on squats and lunges since I’m still recovering from Saturday’s race, but I felt the burn big time during the upper body tracks. I loved it and my arms felt like Jello as I walked out of the class when it was over. The burn I felt in my biceps and shoulders today reminded me just how much I adore the burn of BodyPump. It’s the best. Phew!
Lunch today was inhaled the minute I was done showering.
I assembled an easy meal of leftover whole wheat pasta and tomato sauce from Saturday night’s dinner and taboule.
I’ve tried taboule one or two times before and I adore it! I love all of the fresh flavors.
Now I’m about to head out to hopefully find a quiet place to work and study for the rest of the day. See ya later!
Question of the Afternoon
- What is your favorite group exercise class?
BodyPump is obviously my all-time favorite group exercise class, but I also loved the boot camp classes that my old gym in Orlando offered. And Jazzercise is pretty much the most fun workout on the planet.
