How today's body pump class happened :)

I was up at 6 a.m for body pump. Gym clothes were ready, so I just needed to get ready and get out of the door. I could not find my scooter keys. The toddler must have taken it from me after I returned from the yoga class last Friday and it could be somewhere amidst his toys. Anyway, I could not find the keys. It was 6.50 a.m and the class began at 7. What did I do? Guess?
 
I decided I just run to the gym instead. I'd be warmed up in case the class started on time. And in case the class was too full, and there were no bars left? I'd do the cardio instead. The point is to get SOME exercsie right? So what if I did not do body pump?
 
So I laced up and ran to the gym. The class had begun and the warm up was almost over when I reached. I looked around. There was a bench, a bar, a mat and some one was sweet enough to give me a couple of 2.5 kg plates! So I joined in for the rest of the class. Of course, I cannot do the push ups right, even the "girl" push ups. Even one. Nope. Not even one. But I can do the lunges, squats, dead lifts, shoulder presses, tricep dips & extensions, bicep curls, pec flys and almost the whole ab routine. So what I can do is far more than what I can't do, right? I will get there. Slowly but surely!
 
I have totally rocked the work-outs this month, so far. Check out my work-out page here. I might not be able to exercise for next 5 days. Wedding and all. But I'll still do what I can. I'm  carrying my new running shoes - my Adidas - Response Stability which feels so good for my flat foot - just in case so that I don't have a dumb excuse if I am presented with an opportunity to run. Wow... look at me. I really have changed!

    1. hey Prachi,

      :) yes, i just posted some your way :P

      Yes the adidas shoes - Response Stability are awesome for my WIDE flat feet - excellent arch support and heel support (for my highly injured ankles)

      I found also two other shoes that I liked - Nike - Pegasus and Nike Vomero and one from the Asics brand for which I dont remember the model name.

      I chose the Adidas one because they were wide enough for me eveb though all the others I mentioned were very good while comparing the other features. It was super expensive, but I decided to spend the bucks.

      Hope this helps...

    2. thanks! that helps a lot. I did a lot of research before buying my nike free run too, but my feet are highly arched so it was easy. I will pass on these names to the hubs.

  3. Awesome. You are one focused girl I see. Who doesn't fall off the wagon once in a while, but to smile and hop right back is what is all required. You are doing it all so well :-)
