It is a little sad when you can't lift your arms enough to get your sports bra on the morning you are scheduled to do your first Body Combat class. Fortunately, after you warm up, the pain subsides into a dull ache :)
Follow that up with 4 sets of lateral arm raises and taking your sports bra off again is a whole other story.
My gripe for today is people who leave early. There are a number of, in my opinion, very rude people who leave class before it is finished. These are probably the same people who walk out before concerts are finished or before the movie is finished. I may be old fashioned, but I think if you commit to attending a class or seeing a show, you should stay until it is over. I was brought up to believe that walking out shows a lack of interest, or respect.
I suppose it doesn't matter so much in a movie because the performers can't see you, but the class instructor or the artists on stage certainly can. I realise people have to get to work, catch the bus or get out of the car park before everyone else, but next time you pick up your bag and head for the door before an event is over, consider the message you are sending both the performers/instructors and other members of the audience/class.
I mean, would 5 more minutes kill you?
Those of you who miss cool down don't give yourselves the opportunity to repay the oxygen debt from the class, and let the blood clear all the toxins from your muscles. (I don't know if this is scientifically accurate but it sounds good!). If you can't walk tomorrow, or feel exhausted rather than invigorated after class ... don't come crying to me!
Weight loss update - I can no longer wear my rings, so I am down to just my wedding ring that spins around my finger.
Yoga feel weird because I can achieve poses without fat getting in the way.
The wrinkly skin on my stomach has all but disappeared. It appears that if I am lean enough and lose the fat under my skin it sucks to my body better. I have less cellulite in my butt but my legs still look dimply.
Fitness Expo - Is anyone going to the Fitness Expo at Darling Harbour on the weekend? Any competition girls coming to town and up for a coffee. I haven't read anyone's blogs so I don't know what you are all doing. Leave a comment or an email if you want to catch up.
