Instead of not taking a class at all, I accepted the offer to be put into the Bodypump class.
Admittedly, I was a little nervous about going to Bodypump because it has been awhile, but it was a nice fit for my carb cycling workouts.
Regular calorie day - the workout
Warm-up - It was a nice morning, so I walked to the HIT Room. I went in knowing that I was going to be sore after this workout, so I thought it was the perfect time to wear the new workout tank that the kids gave me. I couldn't find it on the website, but I found this one that is just as good.
Strength training - On the weekly workout plan (that I'm sort of jumping into), day 3 is legs, triceps, shoulders and day 4 is back, biceps, abs. Bodypump turned out to be a great option because we did all that and more.
It was a tough workout for me. Not only because I haven't strength trained like this in months, but I also felt lightheaded toward the end of the class. I don't know what caused it: jet lag, dehydration, empty fuel tank (I did the class fasted), the heat? It was semi-scary.
broke fast around 12:30 - scrambled eggs with ham, pb&j apple cinnamon rice cakes (we smuggled them in our carry-on from the US ;) and watermelon.
lunch - frozen berry protein smoothie and pb&j apple cinnamon rice cakes. PS - I'm currently reading The Husband's Secret on my Kindle app and it is soooo good.
Dinner - took mrC out to dinner to MooFish for his yearly big day ---> fettuccini carbonara with chicken plus a couple of strawberry daiquiris :)
Happy birthday mrC!
|I highly recommend this racerback cami from JCrew Factory|
Are you taking a vacation this summer?
Ever get lightheaded during a workout?
Do you prefer going out or staying home for birthday dinner?
