Today was a cardio day, and as I walked up the stairs to the gym I caught myself dreading the thought of an hour of cardio with just me, my ipod (which is in serious need of some new tunes) and a treadmill and/or cross trainer...
Soooooo - I did a Body Step class! Have not done an aerobic class for ages, like years, so it was GREAT! It was the brand new class too, so luckily it was new to everyone and I didn't feel so un-co. I have to say though, either this new step tape is easier, or I'm a hell of a lot fitter than I used to be... I kept glancing at my heart rate monitor and I was surprised to see that it was mostly below 160BPM. Only a couple of times it climed above 170.
Anyway, I enjoyed it so much that the time just flew by. I'm now planning on re-working my training schedule so that I can do some more classes! Next on my list might be an RPM class *shudder* - nasty, but a really good workout. Unfortunately I think I need lots more cardio in my life, so if I can make it as fun as possible then it makes it so much easier.
Got a big day planned for tomorrow... got to get up early-ish (maybe 6.30am... well that IS early for a Saturday) and take the dogs for a walk, then head off to the shops to get the groceries done nice and early. Then we have the dog-wash man, then an open-house at 3pm. After that the evening is MINE.... ALL MINE!! I think my boyfriend is going to some kickboxing on Saturday night... so I'm staying home alone... so here's my plan...
Run a nice hot bubbly bath.
Apply a face-pack and relax in previously mentioned bath
Moisturise and massage aching feet - possibly paint nails
Make a home-made pizza
Enjoy home-made pizza!! (maybe a red wine too)
Get out new release DVD "Pride and Prejudice" which I have wanted to see forever but cannot watch as BF flatly refuses to sit through Jane Austen! hehehe
Relax and enjoy the "me" time - just me, my kitty-cat and the dogs!
Cant wait! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
