This past weekend a friend told me there’s a Gaiam Outlet north of Cincinnati and they have sales every couple of weekends. I was excited because while their stuff is available at Target, some of it seems pricey. Call me cheap, but I don’t like to pay full price for workout stuff.
I picked up everything in this photo for less than $20, which is the original price of those ankle weights. I’m not sure how much TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Home Goods charge, but not $20 (although the selection is hit or miss). They had Jillian’s Body Revolution and it was 70% off, but I didn’t know the original price (I’d guess somewhere between $99 and $119).
The resistance band might go to work so when I get a case of ants in the pants, I can use it. I finally have a pump and can use my ball to do my fave tuck > roll > pushups in the privacy of my home without worry about where my shirt is in the process (creeping toward my neck). Not that I think anyone is probably looking, but then getting off the ball is also an act of grace.
Wallsits & Squats
I’m still doing this, but not posting the time photo every day on Instagram because I think that’s probably boring to my followers and if want to update my Statigram header, I don’t want it to be full of times (so vain). The squats are getting intense (60 today) but I’m varying them with swings and overhead press so it’s a little more than just leg work.
Saturday, I went to a new-to-me instuctor’s spin class and I wasn’t late, but I guess a chunk of people show up for an earlier class and claim bikes, which meant I was in the front row. At least a third of the class got to enjoy my juicy booty every time we climbed a hill. That will teach them not to get to class too early and hog the bikes – ha! It was a really great workout with decent music (I’m over We Are Young and Some Nights).
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings are on my schedule for spinning this week.
I’m going on Friday this week for Yoga Jamz, it is a bit more relaxed and she plays music! Also, my review for the yoga studio was chosen as the Yelp Review of the Day – woot!
I watched Monday’s episode, but I will not be watching past 9pm in the future, because staying up past 9:30pm and getting up at 4:30am really messes up my day. Besides Jillian, Bob and Dolvert should know that sleep is essential to healthy living (ie not over-eating, eating out of sleepiness).
I tried the Pussycat Dolls workouts and they’re better described as dance instruction. I was going to try a Tracey Anderson workout, but some reviews made it sound like if you’re not a dancer, you’ll be lost. I should write a review for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders workout instead of finding a new one to try.
I went to the dentist so I had to take the obligatory post-dental cleaning car photo. I love my dentist, but how to they manage to get my hair out from under my head and then pinned between their body and the chair?! I guess I’m going to have to rock a side ponytail and see if that prevents it, but at one point I was pinned down to the chair by my hair. Cripes!
