Wednesday's exercise

I took a total body workout class last night. The verdict? I hated it more than any other exercise class I've taken before. The Total Body Workout has a large section working on a step. As in Step Aerobics, as in something the uncoordinated should NEVER be involved in. I am one of the uncoordinated. I tripped twice and could not follow the instructor at all. I ended up spending most of the time doing lunges off of the step while everyone else was doing around the world crap. Now there were other parts to the class that were okay. Walking lunges and squats, arm curls witha body bar, and some inner and outer thigh work. I was cool with all that, but that step just frustrated the hell out of me. My S-I-L was like you look so angry! And I'm all, well yeah. I hate this class, why would I look happy during it?

Afterward, I ruined my workout because I ate vanilla icecream with hot fudge. All those AP's I earned went for that yummy dessert. Tonight, I'll be on my best behavior.

Honestly it was a solid workout. I burned some serious calories, but I'm quite happy to be heading back to my elliptical tonight. Yay, I get to watch Oprah... even if it's a repeat (I actually have no idea if it's a repeat or night, I'm just assuming!)

This morning I was late getting into work because I had to get two new tires put on my car. I had major thread showing on the front tires and I was too scared to drive 30 freeway miles on them knowing I was at a huge risk for those babies to blow on me. So now I have new safe tires and the car drives so much better. And I got the tires put on really fast so I was at work by 8AM.

Hi I just found your blog and wanted to say hey! I know the feeling of eating massive badness after working out. It is so frustrating!

LOL I used to do step workouts but I am so clumsy now I think I would fall flat on my face. Those classes take lots of practice. Do what works best for you.

I've made a couple of goals this week, one includes not eating badly after a workout and the other is to go back to that step class... because I like to torture myself!
