4th of July is gone....was hotter than a 2 peckered goat!

Yes the holiday is passed, and I am down another 2 pounds this morning.  Can you say holy damn!!!!  I am thrilled.

I have to tell you of my new found fun!!  BODY PUMP....oh yeah!  I am loving it...although I cuss Joe the instructor up one side and down another, like a sailor in May!

Nichole and I went to our first class yesterday morning at 7:00am.  First of all, do you know that even a year ago, I would never have wanted to go pump weights.  I would have rather have been flogged.

I have to say, it is not as horrible as you imagine.  I liked it a lot and I will be doing it at least a couple of times a week.

I am so sore this morning, but it is a good kind of sore ya know.  I thought I would die doing the squats, in fact I thought I had....LOL!

I felt muscles I did not know we even had on our bodies.  I think mine were in hibernation for the past 40 years or so.

I look forward to the changes that will be coming with this new class, and how my body will like me pumping it up!

It was a quiet 4th at my house.  The boys gone and it was 100+ degrees outside, left me with not much desire to be outside, I thought about heading to the pool and even that did not sound like so much fun.

So I stayed in, and just did odd jobs around the house.  Went to bed early and headed into work this morning at 5am.

Looking forward to my next Body Pump class!

It has been super hot here too...we have been setting record highs for our area this week. We had a fireworks ban in our area, but people in my neighborhood shot them off any way since we did actually get a bit of rain yesterday for about 30 minutes. We did get in the pool...but it almost felt like bath water.

Body pump sounds great, I hear so many people talking about it... and I know I really need some strength training... but I's scared! What would a first timer expect from this class? :)

I know what you mean - if you had told me a year ago, two weeks prior to my surgery, that I would be biking to work every morning at 515 am and going to yoga 4+ times a week, I would have called you a liar! I'm even trying to figure out how to get Hubby on a bike this weekend so we can ride down to the canal and hang out...sometimes I don't know who I am!!! But I sure like her...congrats on 2 more lbs gone, you are a total rock star and a huge inspiration to me! Keep it up lady!!

Hey thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello after my long absence! YOU are the one who is inspiring - and you're doing so well - another 2 lbs as you know is great progress!!

Congrats on enjoying the class you're taking. It really is an amazing feeling to enjoy exercising. That's how I want to feel again about running.

As you mentioned, its been HOT here also. WAY too hot!

Keep it going! And I'll try to also!! :)
