Kick Yer Bootycamp

The spin teacher has been playing some ah-mazing jams!! Last Monday we did "Around the World"- her playlist consisted of songs that mention different countries (Toto's Africa, Men at Work's Down Under, even a little Lord of the Dance). Every song had a different workout, one song was a sprint during the chorus, another was adding resistance during each chorus and we had little to no rest in between. I loved the variety and my mind didn't wonder. Last Wednesday she did a Cinco de Mayo theme and today was a Mother's Day theme (Ozzy Osbourne's Momma I'm Coming Home, Momma Mia, etc.) all while we worked on different types of intervals- I loved it!! It was funny because right before the class, which is just after I finished working my biceps and back, I was tired and so not in the mood to take an hour class. Halfway through the class I was so happy I was there and enjoying it so much. Sometimes you really do have to push past being tired and in my case, grumpy, and just do it!!

And I forgot to tell you about Saturday's boot camp! It was amazing!! We worked out with weights, did a few rounds of sprints and I did my first set (err make that sets of 14, 12, 10, 8, 6 and 4!) of burpees with push-ups following immediately after. Whoa talk about a workout. Every part of my body was workedand my heart rate was up. It was a great way to start a Saturday morning.

Just about every time I eat oatmeal (which is 3-4 days out of the week) I have terrible stomach pains, bloating and nausea. I thought this was totally normal. It wasn't until last week that I was enduring another round of pain (see: hunched over and about ready to hurl) that I began to wonder if everyone felt this way after oatmeal. I did a little research and nope, I don't think everyone feels that bad. Whoops. After reading a few forums and articles, I think I'll be staying away from oatmeal for a little while. It most definitely was a funny/embarrassing/great realization.
