I made it to the gym early this morning and took Body Pump class. It was my first time doing the new release, which was launched at my gym two weekends ago.
I like the new release because there’s a lot of variety. I actually finished the bicep track, when normally, I would have to stop and do every other rep towards the end during past releases.
My favorite tracks are chest, triceps and shoulders. I carried my heaviest weight so far in Body Pump class during the squats track today. I used large, medium and small plates on each side, 35 lbs + 2.5 lbs barbell = 37.5 lbs total.
I was sweating so much, I had to blink a few times towards the end because sweat were dripping down my forehead down my eyes (eewww!).
I ate breakfast before heading to the gym today. I missed eating my after dinner snack last night and woke up starving.
La Tortilla Factory whole wheat tortilla and microwaved with string cheese.
After the cheese has melted, I took it out of the microwave and added cooked 1 egg + 2 egg whites as stuffing.
I enjoyed eating it rolled-up style, because I love eating food I can roll-up.
Last night, when I pulled up on the driveway, I smelled a combination of food being grilled and also a strong grass smell.
After I walked in the door, Chris told me that he was almost done grilling fish for dinner. He is great at marinating fish and grilling them. Always delicious.
Salad, brown rice and grilled fish was our dinner last night.
During dinner, Chris thought that the heater was on because he was feeling heat on his back.
We later found out that his back was burnt from mowing the loan earlier in the afternoon. That’s where the heat was coming from. Ouch! His back looked like a lobster and felt like a warm cup of tea.
Multiple layers of aloe vera lotion afterwards, the lobster Chris was able to go to sleep comfortably on his back.
Mental note: bring a lot of Aloe Vera lotion supply to Mexico next month. We don’t want any lobster wedding pictures 😦
Speaking of wedding, I have fun plans tonight with my wonderful friends. My friends from high school are hosting a bridal shower for me. I’m so excited to see them and can’t wait to celebrate.
I went thru my closet and pulled out some dresses I wanted to wear tonight. I haven’t decided what I want to wear yet, but I’m leaning towards something pink and bright!
I hope I’m not too sore from Body Pump to carry a glass (or two, or three) of wine tonight.
Easter colors moonlighting as our wedding colors. Tonight will be very colorful, literally!
Have a fun Saturday!
