Happy 2015 Beautiful people!
May what was your ceiling in 2014 become your floor in 2015, in Jesus name, Amen!!
Okay so, after 3 weeks of not going to the gym (hey, I was on Christmas break), I went back in full force. At my gym, there were some changes made this 2015 that I am still trying to come to terms with.
Example: In addition to increasing membership fees, the time for my Monday aerobics class was increased from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Please note – I BARELY survived the 30 minutes classes. So I did not find the extra 15 minutes funny at all. 2 classes in, you would think I would have gotten the hang of it by now abi? OF COURSE NOT!
In class today, my workout instructor said since it is a New Year, it was time for me to move from 2kg weights to 7kg. Because I didn’t want to ‘carry last’, I took 7kg weights and told her to “bring it on”. She also told us to set up the step platforms (a.k.a workout steps) since I was so enthusiastic. So I did.
47 minutes later, I told my instructor, I pray she gets a new job, showered and came back to work. Ever since then I’ve been so uncomfortable. Everything/where HURTS. I can’t even laugh.
I reached out to my second sister (after all, its her fault I started working out to begin with). After whining about my lunch break at the gym, my body aches and “I didn’t even drink water” (because I forgot my water bottle), all she could say was “wait, you drink water during your workouts?”
This lead to a crazy debate with my other sisters and now my question to you – Do you drink water during your workouts?
I know I could always just “ask Google” what to do but I am more interested in what people in real life do. Why? Because:
- If more of you do, it will make me feel better about myself and I can run back and tell my sisters.
- If most of you do not, I will then “ask Google” and let you all know the best way to go. So please, pray tell.
Thank you for reading!
