Body Pump on Friday was a new release. I didn't care for any of the new tracks though. Some BP releases are great and some terrible, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground.
Saturday- A little sore in upper body- Zumba dance class was fun even though everyone except the instructor looked like a fool.
Sunday- no workout, earning money instead
Monday- no workout
Tuesday- Step 530pm
Body Pump 630pm

With the hecticness of the holiday season I am not getting in my workouts. I am getting in a few but not nearly what I need. At least I have not been consuming tons of junk food, otherwise I probably would have gained 5 or more pounds. Looking forward to everything getting back to normal, and exercising like crazy!
Tuesday December 14- Step class 55 minutes
saturday Dec 18- Zumba
lots of walking done this week too

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome workout last night! Did Step, and Body Pump back to back, with my favorite instructor and friend. Was tired after a hard Step class, but made myself get a barbell, plates, and extra risers for Body Pump. Started with 10 pounds each side for warmup, then 25 each side for squats. This nearly did me in because it was the newest release for squats and was HARD. Anyway it was very apparent that I was sweating and working hard, so thats good, wouldn't want anyone to think the vegan was slacking. Upper body is sore today mostly around upper back, and chest.

Thanks for dropping by! :zunge:

For whatever reason I have been really tired this week. I feel fine though, just warn out, so have not gotten to the gym that much. But I just created an exercise schedule for myself that I intend on keeping. This is what it looks like, it is pretty similar to what I have been doing but now it is written down and I will look at it everyday, and feel extremely guilty if I slack. LOL.

Sunday- 1pm Step, 3pm Body Pump
Monday- AM run, 430pm- spinning class
Tuesday- 530pm Step, 630pm Body Pump
Wednesday- AM run
Thursday- Rest Day
Friday- AM Run and weights
Saturday- Zumba or beginning Yoga class 930 am
I have to keep this schedule up for the next 8 weeks or so before the vegan cruise, and I also have to focus more on what I eat.

Say hi to Tim for me!

Zumba is fun too. I've done that before.

But Tim's Body Pump Class was one of the toughest classes I've ever taken...and you said it was one of the easier ones he does too!

No I said that "particular" class was easier than usual for me. By no means is Body Pump an easy class! Most Body Pump classes I usually am so worn out by the end that I feel like I can't move a muscle. My muscles catch up to this feeling the next day or so! :D

Since I have not posted I haven't really been working out, obviously.
Thursday 1/6/11- run, and weights
ran about 3 miles I think. It was a nice brisk day and felt good although my breathing was kind of off during my run, not sure why. The day was kind of misty, and it had rained earlier before i ran, maybe that had something to do with it.
After I got back I trained about an hour- back and biceps 3 sets 8 reps. Did cable rows, bicep curls, pulldowns, hammer curls, assisted pull ups, and wide bicep curls, ended with abs w/ 6lb medicine ball and stretching

No More Excuses! Going to gym tonight. Step and possibly staying for Body Pump. If I don't stay for Body pump I will be back at gym in morning and run and then do weights. Feel like my eating is back under control too. Didn't work out yesterday because of female reasons. Anyway today is a new day and I feel great. And I will get even more motivation tonight when I watch The Biggest Loser. Bob Harper is cool!

Although I was very tired and not up to it I did go to Step. Because of the way I felt it was a very hard workout, but a good one. I listened to my body though and decided to skip Body Pump.
Tomorrow morning I will go for a run, and do some weights. I'm thinking maybe triceps, shoulder and chest.

I didn't realize that Special K was vegan. I used to love love love the vanilla almond.
