I have no idea how I lost track of time this morning, but I was late to Body Pump. Gahhh! I hate being late!
I probably only missed a minute of the warm-up, but I felt bad “interrupting” class by arriving late and fumbling around to set up my equipment. I quickly got myself together and managed to pick up the class near the end of the warm-up, so it really wasn’t a big deal.
A good 15 minutes later, however, another woman arrived late to class. It didn’t bother me, but I noticed that it annoyed some of the other people in the class. Seeing this got me thinking about showing up late to group exercise classes. How late is too late?
Personally, if I’m more than 5 minutes late, I won’t interrupt the class. I think it’s kind of rude, and I also don’t want to miss out on the warm-up and workout itself. Plus, it’s just as easy to do another workout at the gym.
What do you think is the “sweatiquette” for showing up late to a group exercise class?
Oh my goodness, lunch was fabulous today!!
I made Angela’s Salt & Vinegar Roasted Chick Peas and added them to a spinach salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, crumbled gorgonzola, and balsamic vinegar. Mmmmmm!
Salt & Vinegar Roasted Chick Peas = SO YUM! If you’re a fan of salt & vinegar, you need to give this recipe a try. It’s super easy and, oh, so delicious!
After lunch, I satisfied my sweet tooth with about a million candy corn pumpkins. I love all things candy corn, but the pumpkins are my absolute favorite. And I always eat them the same way: I bite off the “stem” and then eat the rest of the pumpkin!
Pugs don’t understand candy corn.
The candle in the background is my newest obsession. Well, actually, it’s my husband’s newest obsession. The scent is called “Creamy Caramel Pumpkin” and it’s from Pier 1. Every time I burn it, Mal tells me that he wants to eat it. He even calls me on his drive home from work to remind me to light it, so he can smell its goodness as soon as he walks in the door!
Dave and Marie are coming over for dinner tonight, so I just popped a batch of Pumpkin Date Nut Bars in the oven for dessert. I’m pretty sure once the bars are finished baking, I will sample one… or two. I need to make sure they taste okay for our guests!
See ya for dinner! I’m testing out a recipe from my book!
