Teaching BodyPump

Happy Friday!!

I am feeling pretty Christmas-y today! The radio just started playing Christmas music 24/7 and I love it! Danny thinks its too early for Christmas music, but not me – Christmas music makes me happy :)

I also had a gingerbread latte from Starbucks this afternoon.


So good. If Christmas music and holiday lattes don’t put you in the Christmas mood then I don’t know what does!


Last night, I was reunited with my niece after not seeing her for a week!


I missed her so much. I’m glad that she had so much fun at Disney, but I’m glad that she’s home.

Today’s Workout

  • Taught BodyPump – 60 minutes

I taught Bodypump on my own for the first time this morning. I was so nervous. I hardly slept last night because I kept having dreams about all the stuff that could go wrong. I had never used the sound system before, so I was a little nervous about getting it up and running.

Luckily, everything went smoothly. I got the sound system to work and I taught my first BodyPump class. I had never taught the triceps, biceps, and core tracks before so I was a little nervous about those.

I wasn’t perfect but I wasn’t horrible either. I knew all the moves and chorography, just my timing was a bit off a few times. But I figure that I can only improve from here!

I burned just under 700 calories teaching. I definitely burn more calories teaching the class than just taking the class!


After BodyPump, I had about an hour and a half to kill until I met with a client. I did a couple of errands and then headed back to the gym.

Tonight, we’re going out to dinner to celebrate my sister-in-law’s 3oth birthday!

Have a great afternoon!

  • Do you think it’s too early for Christmas music?
  • Do you have any plans this weekend?
