Birthday Lunges

OK, you know it's time to seek medical pschyological help when you decide a good use of your birthday lunch-hour is to show up to a Body Sculpt class. Not only was it my birthday, but the weather was foul and my quads were still in agony from Tuesday's session, so I had three perfectly adequate excuses to give it a miss.

Any sane person would have gone for a big lunch with friends, or for a spot of light shopping, or even just to claim their free drink at Starbucks. Not me - I dutifully joined in with more of the same lunges which almost defeated me earlier in the week, with a liberal sprinkling of push-ups and upper body torture thrown in for good measure.

And you know what? I actually feel a bit younger than I did when I woke up this morning. Which is a good thing, as I plan on doing some serious dietary damage this evening. :)

  1. Many happy returns of the day Struggler. Now get out there and do some dietary damage, you earned it.

  2. Happy Birthday! Indulge without guilt today :) You earned it!

  3. That was an absolutely insane way to spend your birthday. I am glad you feel younger for your efforts though. Happy Birthday!

  4. Happy Birthday! Way to go on getting in the workout :-)

  5. I found this training log called The Daily Mile--it's free and really easy to use. I thought of you because you're probably still disappointed about Napa, but this site might help you stay motivated and inspired...and it's pretty dang fun. You can check out my log at my blog (ha. rhyme.) it's first thing in the right hand column. Or go here to sign up:

    I hope you do it. I want more people I 'know' to sign up b/c it would make it even more fun. Hope you're doing well!

  6. Happy birthday (belated). I think you made the right choice; taking care of yourself is the best gift you can give yourself, isn't it? And lots of those classes are actually quite fun!
