Good afternoon! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
Here’s a few pictures from our weekend.
On Saturday, we went with my family to a farm stand that had pumpkins, activities for the kids, a store with fresh fruits and veggies, a gift shop, and a bakery. I had apple cider and a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie.
I’m fancy in my VS sweatpants:
We all chipped in and made a scarecrow.
I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever made a scarecrow. We had a lot of fun making it, and my dad did a great job painting on the face.
We told the kids to make a scared face for the picture. Jaden is the only one who participated.
We spent the afternoon at the farm stand and then went back to our house to watch a scary movie. We had to pick from the movies from the On Demand on our tv so our choices were limited. We finally picked The Shining. I’ve seen it before but not for many years. And it’s interesting that Stephen King’s book sequel to The Shining just came out.
- Practiced BodyPump – 60 minutes
- Stretching – 15 minutes
I didn’t go to the gym this morning. Instead, I stayed home and practiced the warm-up track from BodyPump over and over and over. The same track for an hour.
My deadline to submit myself teaching BodyPump (without any notes!) is coming up soon and I don’t feel anywhere near ready. I am still trying to memorize the tracks. And since my right hip and glute are still killing me, practicing the squats and lunges tracks is extremely difficult.
I’ve also been writing a lot of notes to help me learn the tracks and know when to give cues and coaching.
Right now, I feel really overwhelmed. I need to get this video done, but I feel like my body is holding me back. On Friday, I taught the warm-up, squats, chest, back, lunges, and shoulder tracks at my gym, and I wasn’t happy with how it went. I feel like I can do better.
My right quad is still killing me today from those lunges on Friday. So, for now I am just practicing what I can and hopefully will get better. I’ve learned that it’s a lot harder than it seems.
This morning, I made sure to stretch my calves because I can feel how tight they are from the 5k yesterday.
I love holiday socks. I can’t help it.
Well, I’m off to pick up my niece and practice some more BodyPump this afternoon!
Have a great day!
