Oh, get your mind out of the gutter you erth-lings!Â I mean Body Pump class, of course!Â Thatâ€™s how I started out my morning yesterday.Â I love this class.Â Itâ€™s fun because itâ€™s one class my hubby will actually take with me.Â So just like I mentioned in my previous article, if the gym intimidates you, this is actually a great class to take.Â It works every body part with a bar and plates, using moves you can use in your own personal workout at the gym.Â The most intimidating part of the class is the set-up.Â So if you ever find yourself wanting to take the class, hereâ€™s Body Pump set-up 101.
You need 3 thingsâ€¦a bench with 2 risers on each side, a mat and weights.Â The weights consist of a bar, a few different sized plates, and clips for the end to keep the weights from falling off.Â I usually start with 5 lb. plates on the bar, then have an extra set of 5â€™s and 2.5â€™s when I need to add weight depending on the exercise.
After the set-up, you just follow along and pump it up!Â Try it, you may like it!
This time after my workout I ate a little smarter than the previous day (no McDonalds).Â My hubby found these veggie (vegan) patties at Costco, and weâ€™ve been hooked ever since:
I love that you can taste the sunflower seeds in it.Â I made myself 2 patties for lunch (plain, no bread), but I really filled up after just one.Â Â Itâ€™s a good, quick, easy meal.
What can I say?Â I love my Costco purchases!
Now I need to go cancel out yesterdayâ€™s workout by finding some ice cream to eat on National Ice Cream Day!Â Â This workout/eating thing is like going up a down escalator!
