Wow! Long Time No Postski!

I have been super busy with work and super tired when I get home. I started a 6 a.m. workout class that is kicking my trash. Seriously. I love it though. Hey Mom and Dad...I actually get up at 5:15 on my own!! I bet you never thought you would see the day, huh? It's mostly kickboxing and they seriously work you out hard.

I go 3 times a week for an hour. The first day my instructor was starting the "cool down" except they don't call it cool down they call it "recovery". I was like sweet, I can't do it anymore let's slow this thing down. Then we got on our mats and she told us to get in the push up position. Then to pick up our weight with one hand and lift one hand in the air. So, you have two feet on the floor like a normal pushup, one hand on the floor and a weight in the other hand and you are doing tricep presses with the weight while you are doing a one-handed pushup!

I actually got pumped up when we started doing this because I seriously thought that my teacher had lost it, so I joined her. But MAN did it feel good to actually do that and squeeze everything out of me that I had. So we did like a ton of those and some other hard stuff and that was our "cool down".

I am feeling better and my back and neck aren't hurting me as bad. I think one of the best things about it is that it's only $38 for an entire semester for 3 days a week at BYU. BYU rocks!
