Awesome Day Two: Pump it Up!


So there is this class... Ive had a bit of a workout crush on it for a while now. But its been way to intimidating for me to just walst upto and introduce myself. It happens right before one of my regular classes and every time I walk in I see a huge group of people sweating and smiling and lugging barbells and weights back to the corner. They all look so happy and healthy and freshly asskicked. Its a beautiful sight. 

Rewind: I have only been going to the gym for a couple months now and tend to stick to cardio type workouts and a couple core classes, etc. I have never really lifted weights, ever! Im more of the tiny limber lets do YOGA variety! But oh how Ive lusted over those heavy stop sign shaped hunks of magic that everyone is lifting and swinging about. Its like a club that Im just not strong enough to get into, but you cant get stronger with out being in it! Sick joke!

So yesterday, day two, I decided to just GO FOR IT!!! I picked up a number at the front desk and went to the elliptical and did 3 and a half miles before heading over for my asskicking. It was wonderful! It was hard, yes, but it felt great. I only had to moderate a few things, granted I went a little light on the weights as a first timer, but I definitely held my own. I felt so dang AWESOME afterwards! Mission BODYPUMP was a success! 

Im loving my awesomeness right now. Im really trying to get out of my comfort zone with my awesome adventures this time around. Yesterday was just that! I cant wait for the next one!!!

How is your AWESOME going?
Check out all the ladies getting AWESOME here!

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
