Good afternoon! Today’s Workout
- Elliptical – 12 minutes
- Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes
- Stairmaster, 100 floors 24 minutes
I have been working out for quite a few years and have come across many different types of exercises – BodyPump, Step, Zumba, CrossFit, Water Aerobics, Spin, Barre Class, etc. Well, today in Butts and Guts, I was introduced to a completely new to me form of exercise – Exercise Drumming. Yes, with drumsticks.
We looked something like this:
We used the drumsticks to hit the balls while doing all sorts of exercises – squats, lunges, shuffling, grapevine, etc. I think it might take a while getting used to, but I really really enjoyed it. I love trying out new forms of exercise and drumming was fun but a workout at the same time. I hope the instructor continues to do it.
After all that exercise drumming, I went and climbed the Eiffel Tower on the StairMaster.
Lunch this afternoon was a salad with baby romaine lettuce, feta cheese, walnuts and cranberries, pears, and Vidalia onion dressing. I also had a Chobani blueberry Greek yogurt for some protein.
Over the weekend, I came across a delicious recipe on Pinterest for a spinach, marinara sauce, and cheese panini-type sandwich. I decided that I must make that sandwich…except it was made on a George Foreman grill, which I don’t have.
So, I did what any normal person would do when they want a sandwich – I went out and bought a George Foreman Grill.
I bought the cheapest one that I could find – $20. I actually didn’t buy it just to make the sandwich, although that’s what pushed me to buy it. I am excited to try lots of different recipes out with it. Tonight, I am going to use to make salmon and asparagus and tomorrow I’ll make the panini. Have a great afternoon!
