Heaven and Hell

Let me just preface this by saying I am very content with my appearance. I may sometimes have snarky thoughts, but overall, I'm happy. In high school I was on the crew team and worked out literally three hours a day, six days a week, nine months out of the year. Now, I work out about an hour a day, still six days a week. I never have and will never be a size two because I have an ass from here to Timbuktu, and "hips that don't lie." Don't let me fool you, I'm not at all complaining, as those are my favorite body parts!!

Anyway, as I was saying... I'm not in awful shape, but I'm by no means a marathon runner or triathlete. Today was supposed to be my off day, but for some God forsaken reason, I thought it would be fun to nearly kill myself. In doing so, I went to the gym early to get in some cardio before what I thought was a weights class (like Body Pump). Well I was far from right. This class was more like boot camp, aka the most difficult workout I've done since high school.

I'm currently on antibiotics that make me want to vomit, so running countless laps, suicides and walking lunges, just wasn't fun. Oh, and to make matters worse, the class started by jumping rope 25 times, run 1 lap, jumping rope 50 times, 2 laps, jumping rope 75 times, 3 laps, jumping rope 100 times, then running 4 laps. Luckily the running wasn't a problem, but jumping rope?! Who does that? I know it's the miracle workout, but I never mastered it and looked like a fool. By the end of the class I felt like the fat kid in gym class that was picked last for dodgeball. :)

Even though that workout well.. sucked, it was also the best decision I made today. I now get to spend the rest of my day off lounging by the pool and preparing for a feast tonight. My family is celebrating my dad's birthday and going to this new Brazilian steakhouse (Churrascaria at Latin Quarter) that is known for being awesome at an awesome price ($37 hollaaa!). All you can eat pork, chicken, steak, lamb and sushi sounds like a meat induced coma heaven!
