Here’s a picture of me at the gym:
Hahahhaha, just kidding,here we go:
Just kidding again!
So, I have mentioned briefly that I have been working out like CRAZY these last few… days? Who knows, time isn’t important. My working out consists of me going to different classes offered at the gym.
Each class is 60 minutes long and is usually taught by different instructors. I like going to classes because it’s like working with a trainer for free! I’ll do body pump on Monday and Wednesday, Hip Hop on Tuesday (which, OMG. BEST CLASS EVER!) and then Bootcamp +Core on Thursday and then recover over the weekend.
These classes are really good but definitely really challenging. Also, I go to a REALLY pretentious gym. It’s in downtown, it’s a Gold’s, it overlooks the city, everything in it is new, and everyone in it is young and incredible attractive…. Imagine Ben Stiller in Dodgeball (and I am Vince Vaughn):
Needless to say, I am 98% of the time the fluffiest person in these classes. I am not necessarily the most out of shape (because looks can be deceiving!) but sometimes I feel like people are judging me. So, instead of feeling insecure I push myself, and then immediately tell everyone to suck it.
Just kidding, I don’t tell them that. But I do push myself, because I like to show people that just because I am big doesn’t mean I can’t be active or do the things they can do (for the most part. I’m still working on pushups…. But, to be fair, I have NEVER been able to do a pushup).
The class on Monday is probably the craziest thing I have ever done. It’s a body pump class, but I think it is pretty much what Bootcamp in the military is like. I mean, I don’t know and it probably isn’t that bad, however… If I ever wanted to join the military before, I have quickly changed my mind because of this class.
Now listen. I have played lots of sports before, experienced lots of “Hell Week”‘s and worked with a lot of fitness trainers in my day. Taking this class is the first time in my life that I almost threw up from working out. I have never even gotten close before. The instructor was like, “Ok, now pick up your free weights again….” and I’m just like, “Sooooo, I’m going to modify this and NOT pick up these weights, or I will throw up on all of these beautiful people.” It’s Thursday right now, and I am fairly certain that the soreness in my back is still from that class.
So my new fitness goal. To COMPLETE that class in it’s entirety. I think it’s going to take me a while. I mean, there were buff frat boys in that class that couldn’t keep up. It was bananas. However, I was proud of myself for making it all 60 minutes without throwing up or even walking out. And I am proud to say that I will be back on Monday.
“Thank you sir, can I have another?”
