I gotta level with you, January is a tricky time to be a Milwaukeean.
Anyhow, when it's freezing outside I like to trick myself by doing fun things, inside.
|Awesome, but not quite what my gym's class is like.|
A little more about the music, since I'm a geek like that: The songs vary by 'track' or program, but are generally modern and upbeat. Think of music pumping, bass thudding and everyone in the class grooving to the songs. It makes for a fun, motivating environment! If they added flashing lights and booze, it'd be like working out in a night club.
Some of the playlists are older and kinda cheesy... but most of the ones I've heard, I like. There is a new 'track' coming out soon which I've heard features songs from Lady Gaga, Ke$ha and Mike Posner. Can't wait for that one.
The class I took tonight was instructed by Amy (Golds Gym - Milwaukee) - I've gotta say, she's the best. She has a high-energy, cheerleader-like personality and shouts out encouraging sentiments constantly. Even cooler, she created her own mix of BodyPump songs, with a heavy emphasis on Black Eyed Peas. Awesome, no?
Tonight's class was great and helped me temporarily forget the frigid temps outside. When I came home, I was pretty hungry. I was elated to see that Zak had dinner waiting for me:
|Toasted up nice and crispy.|
A burrito of sorts - vegetarian refried beans, sharp cheddar, roasted brussels sprouts and broccoli, all wrapped up in a spinach tortilla.
This was great and warmed my stomach. After dinner, I was happy to set up some new candles which arrived today:
|'Winter' by Bath + Body Works on the left|
|A silver-plated pinecone?|
|On the inside - 'Balsam' scented candle|
|Seesters on the left|
Coming tomorrow - a review of Celestial Seasonings' new Fast Lane tea - and a giveaway! G'night!
