Body blaster

You would think the very title would have given me pause. Using those words in tandem can not possibly be a good thing can it? I think the class description also used the word "burn"...multiple times.

My awesome friend Lindsay teaches the above method of torture, I mean exercise, at 5:30 A.M. Yes, you read that correctly. As in before the sun comes up. She invited me to join her in her sick little game this morning. Those of you who know me are already laughing. Mike actually laughed out loud. Not at the fact I was exercising, but at the ungodly hour it was taking place.

Having your instructor pick you up and take you to class takes out all possible excuse for not showing up.

I survived the hour, but am certain it may have been illegal under the Geneva Convention's stance on torture. I made it home and fell into a bubblebath while consuming large amounts of incredibly strong coffee. Mike asked if he should get me a walker. Smarty pants!

The mere fact I survived to see another day was a good start. I may actually show up again. Lindsay is an AMAZING woman and a great encouragement to me. She won't let me not show up...she knows where I live.


  1. I did C25K W4D1 (Couch to 5K Week 4 Day 1) Wowza... I hope you aren't as sore as I am right now. Maybe I should go find my bubble bath. °Ü°

    Great Job!! It'll do ya good, ya know. Keep up the great work!

  2. Sounds scary but classes like this are so good. Hope you aren't too sore after ward. If you are, don't give up

  3. So what's up with the no pain no gain thing. I would like there to be an easier way.

    Congrats on surviving the first session! May you reap Big Benefits for going to an exercise class at such an ungodly hour!

    Have a great weekend!


  4. I e-mailed you an important note. Could you please check your junk mail if you didn't receive it and get back to me.


  5. Ang,
    I am so impressed with your new work out regiment. May you see results and have more energy for your family.
    I've had a wonderful and very difficult past 8 days having an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. I honestly thought I'd end up in the hospital; but I made it through without having to go. Words cannot express how terrible I felt.
    We hosted The Rebelution this past week-end and were totally blessed and challenged to do hard things for God's glory.
    Our computer is back and is sooooooo fast.
    I've been praying for (((((you))))) each day as I read about your world being rocked. God holds you in His most strong and sure grip and loves your more than we can imagine.

  6. Wish I had someone to make me get up and take me to class too! Way to go! I need to so badly! I'm simply lazy!

  7. Awesome! I would love to have an opportunity like that! You are excuses!
