Day 178: Body Pump with 2 Snowmen

The observant amongst you may have noticed the similarity between the title of day 177 and day 178. The really observant may have noticed the similarity between the Pilates instructor and the Body Pump instructor…but pretend you haven’t and wait for the end to be surprised :-p

18420-Clipart-Illustration-Of-An-Orange-Man-Lifting-A-Barbell-While-Strength-TrainingYesterday was Body Pump Monday, considering my recent disillusion with body pump, I was considerably more enthusiastic than I expected…that might be slightly because I was a little bit over excited about some other news (which will be revealed in another post…) But whatever the reason, I was more enthusiastic today.

On saying that, the class seemed hard! There were only about 7 people in it, the hardcore group as it were 😉 I didn’t up my weights, I used the same as last week, but it seemed harder…apart from biceps in which I really need to find a way to up the weights. The only track that didn’t seem as had as normal was the shoulder track, I guess the shoulder work I have been doing recently has been paying off 🙂

Ok…now for the snowman bit, remember yesterday when I got a tiny reindeer in Pilates? and you remember ages ago when I said the my Awesome Pilates instructor and my awesome body pump instructor are the same person? well…in Body pump she gave us all a tiny chocolate something…and because there were so few of us she gave us two 😀 I got two tiny snowmen (they were only 2″ high :-D)…one of which I gave to my husband 😀


Day 178 Complete 😀
