Fine, I didn’t really.
That doesn’t mean I didn’t want to.
Post-work, I scooped up these two for a killer workout class. We had plans to run afterwards. Three guesses as to whether that really happened or not…
TABATA TNT is french for “I just made you sore enough to waddle for a week.”
I made that up. It’s really “a super intense class that will blast your workout to another level with 20 second sprints and 10 second rest intervals for 8 sets.”
Fun fact: I hate burpees. I hate, hate, hate them.
No other fitness move in the world makes me want to punch myself in the face more.
And this class made me do EIGHT 20-second sets of them.
I texted my college field hockey coach to tell her I was thinking of her today. She knows how much I hated those burpees.
The fitness class alternated between a cardio-based sprint and a weight-lifting sprint. In addition to the burpees, our class included spin bike sprints (some standing), squats with overhead presses, alternating bicep curls, weighted one-armed sit-ups, pushups, jump squats, banded lateral walks, jump roping, and more.
After TABATA TNT, I introduced Katelyn to a few of my favorite things, the first being the Farm Fresh salad bar.
Or maybe you’re not supposed to. But I do it anyway, and I’ve never gotten yelled at.
My final product: a mess of spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, turkey, pinto and green bean salad, corn, raisins, cabbage, quinoa, crumbled feta, and poppyseed dressing. All in my nice pie plate.
With some chocolate milk for my poor sore muscles.
I had a slight mishap at the granola dispenser. Sad, cause you can’t even see the dark chocolate froyo mixed with oreo peanut butter froyo topped with coconut, Oreos, cheesecake bites, almonds, and Reece’s cups. BAM!
Coming soon: my new upper-body workout regime. Get ready to get those arms in gear.
HAPPY WEEKEND! You’ll find me foam rolling my poor quads. Those are my plans.
