This morning I went to a boot camp class. It was pitch black when we started. 5:30 AM. And cold. So, seriously hard core- in my opinion at least. There were only 5 other people there, all of whom have been taking it all summer (I didn’t know it even existed until Wed). I guess as it’s been getting colder and darker less and less people have been showing up, and just the most hardcore are left. It was…. intense, for lack of a more intense word haha.
Here’s a small sampling of what we did, as I can’t remember it all, but I do know that I burned 540 calories (insert insanely crazy smiley):
-ran up and down stairs for 5 minutes
-ran up one hill and back down it, then lunged up and down an adjacent hill. repeat 4 or 5 times.
-squats on own pace while waiting for the others to catch up
-a series of exercise with weights without stopping… lateral raises, shoulder press, hammer curls, bicep curls, pushups off the bleachers, dips off the bleachers. run up and down bleachers 4 times (i did stairs bc of ankle). repeat at a pulsing faster speed. repeat bleacher run
-jog over to the “suicide” hill. run up and down for 5 minutes. 5 minutes is a long time when sprinting up and down a hill.
-break for 30 seconds. then SPRINT as fast as your body will take you up and down the hill 2 times
-start jogging immediately.
-jog for 10 minutes to a short wall. do pushups, plyometrics, and 1 leg squats off the wall.
-jog back to the starting point
-do several exercises of abs
-cooldown stretch and go home!
It was awesome. I loved every minute of it, although I did curse to myself in my head once or twice as to why in the world I got up so early to do it. I am so happy I went!
On to the amazing Great Harvest bread. This new, rhodey location is in Cranston. Check it out here.
I had 4 oz of the honey wheat bread with pb and a banana. And hot tea and water of course. It was so good!!!
I was sad when I had eaten it all. By the way, before my workout I took a little bite of that baby piece with the one slice on it. Next time I will have a bigger preworkout snack though. Anyway, how to describe the bread? It is so hard to explain, but it is just so chewy and fresh and real tasting, if that makes any sense. My Rhodey friends, you MUST go there asap!
So happy it’s Friday! PB will be here in less than 12 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
