Class was BRUTAL... again. Kicked my ass. It always kicks my ass. How is this possible? Wouldn't it start getting EASIER the more I go? Maybe I need to go or do any sort of anything resembling strength training more than just once a week? Huh. Rocket science, I tell you.
Anyway-- the warm-up was:
-30 sumo squats til your butt hit the step
-20 push-ups (I did them girl style)
-10 squat thrusters (I used 10-pound weights)
Repeat 3 times, followed by a 2 minute plank
Kills me every time. Just call it the start of the workout. Don't LIE to me and call THAT a "warm-up". There's nothing small enough about that to warm UP to. It's up. Way up. Rant over. After the warm up we did a bunch of rows, bicep curls, russian twists, planks, push ups, squats, reverse lunges, squat thrusters, chest presses, swimmers, cannon balls, tricep dips, and more. If I didn't feel like the deathly pic above shows before the workout, I sure as shit did after it. I walked up to the treadmill to do my usual quick run and just couldn't even get the energy/motivation to step on it. I walked right back to the locker room and sat in the sauna for 20 minutes instead. #fail Hopefully I can get a run in later today during my lunch hour... but, I kinda doubt it. Oh well. At least I got some strength in.
After class I showered and stuff and it wasn't til I got to work and that I realized I have a hole in my shirt!
Oh no! I look like a slob today! Oh well. It's a small-ish hole, but it is right in the middle of my tummy-- no hiding this sucker. At least I'm wearing a tank top under the shirt so I'm not showing any skin. :)
I'll leave you with a cute pic of Sadie because I can and because she's just so damn cute.
We're working on leash walking right now. She pulls like CRAZY when we walk. She just wants to sniff and smell everything and does not want to stay right next to either of us. She's so stubborn! So, we're trying to keep her on a shorter leash and give her treats for staying near us... it's a sloooow process. We're thinking about doing an obedience class, but that's seriously the only issue we're having. She's potty and crate trained. She doesn't bark. She doesn't jump up on strangers (much). She did great at the dog park with other dogs. She's SUCH a good dog, we'd just like her to stay near us a little more when we take her for walks. We'll see. Stay tuned.
