I LOVE Saturdays! Just saying.
So, my Plan B worked out well this morning. I didn’t make it to Body Pump on Thursday night, so I signed up for a Gravity class at Healthworks this morning. However, when I woke up, I wasn’t totally jazzed to venture outside into the freezing cold, get on a bus, and go to the gym, but I signed up for the class and didn’t want to blow it off. Just the act of committing to the class helped me get my butt to the gym.
For those of you who are long-time readers of CNC (or Healthworks members), Gravity might be old news to you. Even still, it’s an awesome workout!
Gravity is a full-body, strength training workout that forces you to essentially work against gravity. You use your own body weight to move up and down on the machine’s glideboard to strengthen and tone your body. (It sort of reminds me of the Pilates reformer.) You quickly and efficiently work every muscle in just 50 minutes.
Healthworks offers a number of different Gravity classes at the Back Bay and Brookline locations. This morning, I took “Defy Gravity,” which is a class that combines gravity with plyometric cardio circuits. It was tough! I was pooped by the end!
Healthworks members: You get a FREE Gravity and BURN class with your membership. If you’ve signed up recently (or even not-so-recently), make sure you inquire at the Fitness Desk about your free sessions. They’re definitely worth a try!
It is FREEZING in Boston today! The weather outside is seriously frightful! Anyway, it was the perfect day for a big bowl of soup.
I cracked open a can of Progresso Zesty Southwestern-Style Vegetable soup to which I added a bunch of homemade croutons. Holy yum! Lunch hit the spot!
After lunch, I satisfied by sweet tooth with a piece of dark chocolate.
And a bunch of jelly beans.
I’m off to see another apartment with Mal and then to an impromptu cheese tasting.
