Body Pump

Today is sunny and warm! It's fantastic, we even have our windows open with the breeze coming through! Montana's weather is weirder than Virginia's. When they claim snow or rain it always ends up being sunny and warm. Yesterday its was suppose to be sunny and warm and we woke up to snow. I think its because of the mountain range. 

This morning when I woke up our bedroom was a sauna. I was ready to pop out of bed! I decided to head to the gym for a Body Pump class. I normally like to weight train on my own however, my motivation to lift has been zero. I enjoyed the class, but I like to really get my heart rate up when I lift, like mixing in bursts of cardio. I also don't like to dilly dally. I think the instructor was nice, but I think her side job must be stand up comedy and she wanted to make us laugh. She also looked exactly like Kim exactly like her. Only with pig tails, it took me off guard. I think I will try a few different instructors before I just give up on Body Pump. 

Another thing that always seems to take me off guard, is the Montana accent. I don't think I will ever get use to it. 

Once I got home from the gym, the warm weather was calling my name so I headed out for a run. I'm not going to lie, running at this altitude has been a challenge for me. Even riding my bike hasn't been easy. My run today though was AWESOME! 4.35 miles in 40 minutes of pure bliss. 

After my run I refreshed myself with a green monster smoothie!

I drank it out of my Windham Mountain East Coast Nationals cup to remind myself that I was once an awesome mountain biker. I took second at that race back in 2008. Here is a picture from that race. 

In my green monster today was: frozen orange slices, frozen peach slices, 1/2 frozen banana, spinach and protein powder. Nice and citrusy!! 

The weather is just to awesome to miss today, so shortly Ridley and I are going to head out for a photo shoot. Currently I have Hearty Good Morning Granola Mix  in the oven and it smells delicious!

  1. The gym I go to has a knock-off Body Pump class. I tried it, but it was pretty slow-paced. I might have to give it another shot before I decide. Your smoothie sounds good!
