YES!! They finally scheduled the ballerina workout class at my gym at a time I could go.
I mean, who can seriously go to class at 10AM on a Tuesday? I mean, me when I was unemployed. But right now I’m a hard core 8-5er!
I thought for sure I was going to turn into this after one workout:
I decided to to go for a trial class before bringing my tutu & pointe shoes. Haha. Kidding.
Iwas very courteous in that I brought a change of clothes so I wouldn’t be in my gross stairs/running sweat. I should’ve known to wear black capris. That was the uniform in this class. And I was wearing grey… considerably less flattering! Never mind that I wasn’t in Lululemon!
You can see I wasn’t joking about the black capris. This was a sneaky sneaky pic. See me in that flash of hot pink the in the mirror.
Well, the workout was a little painful. It was one of those workouts that focuses on “teeny tiny movements.” Our instructor was adorable! I loved her so much. She was so energetic but not annoying. Plus she could do the abs exercises without the barre. Impressive! It was one of those classes that’s synced with the music so I liked that. Especially when they played Destiny’s Child.
Update: Today I had a really hard time walking down the stairs at work. Must’ve been that 100+ calf raise type thingies we did!!!
Do you think it’s worth it to go to the class if I can go only once per week? I’m more into big picture workouts (RUNNING!), but the instructor convinced me with all the,”This is changing the shape of your thighs right now!” I will say that the stretching parts felt really good.
We found these little gems at Wal-Mart the other day!! So awesome. I don’t know why Kevin makes fun of me exploring alternative grocery stores when I come up with some awesome things like these!
A little shredded chicken slider with broccoli & sweet potato fries! Mmm!!!! I have tons of ideas for those little sliders!!
A little sad news before I go…
Kevin and I have recommitted ourselves to cutting back on the DC. I feel like I’m missing a friend already. Haha. We’re not going cold turkey. That’s not our style. We’ll still drink it when we go out and a limited amount on the weekends only. And probably if we get for freezies (for example: in a meeting). But we’re going to quit stocking it at home. We’ve already cut back some. Unfortunately, it’s something we both love. And kind of something that symbolizes relaxation for us. But I know it’s my worst habit. Although I do have to say it bothers me when people who spend four hours on the couch watching tv every night lecture me about it. I know Diet Coke has some weird sweeteners, but being sedentary raises shortens your life considerably besides increasing your susceptibility to virtually every disease. So do a few jumping jacks before you point fingers!! I mean that in a loving way.
Anyways. My easiest way of doing it is focusing on the waste of money! This is beside the point of it being unhealthy. We did some fast math in the grocery store parking lot and in a few months we’re going to be millionaires!! Haha. So wish us luck! The good news is we never have cash so that makes it difficult to go after the office pop machines. I
Are you a pop drinker? I love Diet Coke more than cake. I really do. In most situations, I’d choose it over the actually meal. And I hate drinking water with most things — pizza and Mexicanespecially! I guess water goes nicely with vegetables so maybe that will be extra encouraging?
Ever tried a barre or ballet-inspired class? I’ve done a few dvds, but doing it in person was WAY better. That instructor was inspiring!!
