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!
