I enjoy listening to some of the pre-class gossip that takes place before my Body Pump class. These are daytime women, so not workers, and they do this class because they like it and recognise the benefits. It’s fun and amusing to hear anecdotes and tales.
However, I took a Body Step class at the weekend since I wanted to try out the new routine that had been released.
The thing that struck me was this conversation:
Instructor to V skinny woman: You’re back! Did you love the new routine yesterday so much you’ve come back for more.
V skinny woman: No…….[pause]…..I’m just fat.
Instructor: Oh you’re not!
V skinny woman: I am. I had such a bad eating day yesterday, I have to work out today. I have to…..
Awkward silence ensues…..
And to my mind, that’s when exercise becomes bad, when you play off eating with exercising, using one to compensate the other.
Back in the game!
I gave myself the weekend off from 10am yesterday. My body needed to recover – I felt so tired this week, I even skipped a class on Friday!
But after a relaxing and energising weekend, I’m back in the game this week.
It reads thus:
Body Pump x2
And that will be my week from Monday-Saturday!
Bring it on!
