Before I get into my adventures on this fine Wednesday eve, I just want to say I noticed a HUGE typo on the title of my last post. Monstosities? What is that? No one commented about it so I don’t know if you guys noticed, but it should have read Monstrosities. Like a monstrosity. You know. With an “r”.
That really bothered me when I noticed it (not until this evening), as I am quite anal about spelling and I will delete my own Facebook posts and re-send emails if I notice a mistake. Did anyone notice?
Actually, while I am on pet peeves, ya know what else really bothers me?
What, exactly, is that supposed to say? I get that Facebook needs to make sure that I’m not a robot, but c’mon. I do not have compound eyes. How am I supposed to read that? Silliness.
In Other News…
Today was an exciting day for me on the workout front. I had a hot date for an outdoor boot camp class that I signed up for through TeamBuy. I have 10 classes to use up (has to be in September), and tonight was class numero uno!
I wouldn’t say the class was killer, and it didn’t quite slay me in the way I expected, but I am definitely going to be beautifully sore tomorrow (I love being sore after a workout – it means something went down!)
Signing up for this boot camp was definitely out of my workout comfort zone. I signed up by myself, barely knew where the place was, and I didn’t know anyone there. I also usually stick to either running, BodyPump, yoga or spinning, and I haven’t really branched out to a lot of other classes or types of exercise.
I haven’t taken a boot camp class for at least two years, possibly three, and I don’t remember enjoying it. However, I have a new found appreciation for exercise these days, so I found this class much more enjoyable than I think I would have back then.
It was basically a ton of cardio, a ton of plyometrics, and a ton of core work. This was A-okay with me, as my core is definitely something I tend to neglect…I may have to work that into an October goal.
One casualty? My hair elastic broke .2 seconds into the warmup. If you read my first survey I did on my blog, you know I love my hair ties. If I do not have a hair tie around my wrist, all I am basically thinking about is where am I going to get my next hair tie?! Hair ties are IMPORTANT.
I did not double up for safety tonight. When my hair tie broke, I had no backup. I do not like my hair down when I’m working out, because it’s in my face the entire time and I have continuously throw my head around like a stripper to keep it behind me. If you have long hair, I’m sure you feel my pain.
I managed, but I felt like Blake Lively in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, running on the beach (and playing soccer, wtf?!) letting my long hair run free and wild in the wind.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty sure exercise = hair UP. Am I alone in thinking this?
It actually wasn’t as annoying as I thought it would be, but my hair definitely didn’t stay all silky and smooth like Blake’s luscious locks did. It went pretty stringy and greasy.
But lesson learned. I will be doubling up on the hair elastics from now on!
I am getting quite lengthy here, so let’s just talk about dinner!
This morning before I left for work I added boneless, skinless chicken breast to my crockpot, covered it with low-sodium chicken broth and let it cook on low alllll day long. I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time tonight to make dinner, and with the help of my lovely crockpot, this dinner came together in no time! When I arrived home, all I did was take the chicken out, shred it, cover it with barbecue sauce and serve it on a whole wheat sandwich thin. Easy peasy!
I also boiled corn on the cob and threw it on the side for a little veggie action.
And now, it is bed time. I hope you all have a great evening!
A few questions pour vous:
- When you work out do you wear your hair up or down?
- Have you ever tried a boot camp class? How did you like it?
