|The Beachbody Mission Statement|
I'm going to report on both....
Beachbody organizes a nationwide event every 3 months. We had one nearby, and I really wanted to go.
I found a supercool babysitter who was willing to spend all day with my kids, and headed out with an awesome fellow coach...
|I was very excited when I arrived!|
|Soon I was able to score an Insanity shirt|
I spent some time looking around at the displays, and meeting a lot of coaches. I love meeting Beachbody coaches- they are some of the friendliest people.
|This is my new friend Alton. He wrote and choreographed the "Shakeology Shakedown."|
|It's like a fitness fanatic's heaven over here...|
After the training, we all got together to learn the "Shakeology Shakedown" dance. I took some video of an early rehearsal:
So fun. The closest thing to a group workout I've done in a while. I got a little crazy and worked so hard, I was sweaty at the end. I had accidentally worked out! (Don't you hate when that happens?) Normally, I would be thrilled... but I had that 8 miler coming up...
We made our way back to my house, and on the way home, noticed that the temperature was above 90 degrees. Oh no. I melt if it's above 75. How am I going to run in this?
I decided to make the leap and run inside at the gym.
|Looking goofy and psyching myself up to run a lot.|
I told myself I would do 32 laps before taking a break, since that would be almost 5 miles. After that, I took a potty break, texted to check in on the kids, and moved to the treadmill.
Since I'm doing the manual record keeping, here's my time for 32 laps (about 4.92 miles):
The treadmill was boring and awful and painful. I made it 2.08 so that I would be at a total of 7 miles. That was about as much as I can stand.
|I hate the treadmill.|
- inner thigh chafing.
- I felt like someone smashed my pelvis with a hammer.
- My running was starting to look like a shuffle.
So, after 8 laps (1.23 miles) I stopped.
|manual (literally) record keeping.|
Oh, but here's the best part. I went downstairs to weigh on the way out, and had this magical moment:
|Finally under 150!|
Thanks to all the great coaches who were so friendly, to my friend who drove on the way, and to the babysitter who was able to take care of both my kids ALL DAY. And my wonderful husband got takeout, which was wonderful.
How was *your* weekend? Any epic workouts? Did you get to relax?
