I went to my first class last night. Boxing. How hardcore am I? AND it was a great mix of strength and cardio AND the time just flew!
I went in looking very lost and a lovely lady rescued me and offered to be my partner. She explained everything, was very encouraging and kept telling me just to do what I could and forget about the rest. She was lovely!!
It was hard though! Last night I went to write something in my planner and my arms were so tired and shaky that I could barely write. Thats how I knew I had worked hard!
I am in two minds about going to tonights class. Part of me wants to go, but the other part knows I should rest today since I worked hard last night. I will probably just go into the gym for an hour to use the bike and xtrainer, no strength. I want to get into good habits, but I'm not silly, I know that I can't work my arms two days in a row until I have more fitness.
So my next class will be Wednesday night - yoga! Now, I've never really been a fan but I thought I would give it a go because I know it is good for me.
Have a good day all. I am off to uni to work my brain muscle!
I have had a busy week. I have moved house, worked heaps and had a tonne of assignents to do!
But my rant for today is clothing sizes and why they don't mean a damn thing!
The other morning I had some money burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to buy some new clothes. It was time. My clothes don't fit well and most of them are from when I was in high school! So off I popped to Kmart to get some new clothes. I got (for $100!!! Man I love Kmart!):
1 pair of leggings (14)
2 pairs of jeans (18)
1 dress (14)
2 tops (14)
1 cardi (10)
So can you see why clothing sizes suck? 5 different items, 3 different sizes. And they all fit! So am I a size 10, or an 18?????? Who knows! I suppose I should call myself a size 14, since that was the most consistant number. Who makes the rules here? Is this right? And whatever happened to Burt and Ernie?!?!
That is my rant for the day, kids. I hope you enjoyed and can relate.
On a separate note I have my gym assessment and first class tonight, so wish me luck!!!
Just a quick note today because I am on an assignment roll! It helps that this assignment is very interesting. Today I interviewed a Sudanese refugee about her experience and now I am writing about it and relating it to the theory. It is actually very interesting!
I've been so busy that I didn't tell y'all that my baby had surgery yesterday! She got into a fight with another cat and the other cat bite a hole in her tail. It was gross. So we carted her off to the vet who stitched her up. She was very stoned when we got her home yesterday. Cats coming off anestetic are very funny. She mainly just slept on me and when she got bored of that she tried to walk, but couldn't and would just fall over. Poor baby. She is doing fine now and apart from not sitting down she is back to normal!
Now I better get back to the books. I want to have a good amount done before Off The Map comes on in 30 minutes! I am learning Spanish at uni, so watching it is technically study!!!
Picture blog will resume tomorrow. For today, c-c-c-check out what I did!
It involved getting up at 4.45. AM. They do a 4.45 in the morning now too. I was shocked.
I went fishing! And had a blast. But I am super tired so I will just show you what I did instead of telling you.
My catches. I had to throw them both back, they were too small!
I was COMPLETELY clueless about fishing. Everytime I got a nibble, a bite or needed my hook baited I would turn to the man next to me (who I called Nice Mr Fisherman, but apparently he prefered to be called by his real name, go figure) and say "What do I do?!?!?!?!". Luckily this man and many others (and some ladies too) were happy to help me out. I'm not above fluttering my eyelashes to get some help and to avoid touching the bait.
I also drank sparkling wine from a bottle, because a can would have been tacky
I was a good girl, just the one drink!
I love this lady!
And then we headed back to shore.
A great day was had by all :) Now if you'll excuse me I have a hot date with my pillow.
