This girl’s thighs are on fire!

Ouch! It’s been three weeks since I last picked up the weights for Body Pump and squatted and lifted and squeezed.

Three weeks! ‘You’ll feel it,’ said my instructor. God, I felt it.

I could hardly walk the next day. My thighs were burning from all those squats – 124 of them to be exact.  Had I thought I was fit before? Had I really let my thighs go?  It shows you how, when you take some time out, you can really feel the affects when you get back to it. It HURTS!

In addition, I have not run for a while owing to the crazy heat. I’ve been swimming and doing all the indoor Zumba and toning stuff, but this heat’s a killer for the runner. I’m not partial to sweat dripping in my eyes, and I just don’t do the headband so well.




More Naughty!

More Naughty!

And Naughty Spice, she’s hanging around this summer….I can feel her presence when I put on my bikini. Sob, sob! She’s feeding my BBQ food and pouring my margaritas…still – it is summer and the party fever has been ever-present sine July 4th!

Carbs, you see – my big, big downfall. But I have a plan from September….and it’s going to be awesome! Fit and fun – that’s the key! Watch this space…..
