On Sunday morning I woke up aching because my head was in a slight mess from consuming copious amounts of pink champagne and wine the previous evening at Robert and Dawn's.
This morning I woke up with muscles that were shouting at me due to the body pump class I attended last night. It was great to get back as I'd been procrastinating about it for months, and finally figured there was no time like the present; add to that I figured Dawn was ready for it after months of gymming it with me. The music was rockin and I won't say I wasn't chuffed if slightly bashful, when the instructor shouted out her pleasure to have me back in class. I left with promises to return to another class soon. My legs, which embarrased me by shaking continually during the lunges are trying to tell me a different story but I won't listen to them because its not an annoying pain like Sunday's headache, its a good pain - anyone who works out will know what I'm talking about. It's a pain that gives you a sense of punishment accomplishment. And I like it. I feel like I've worked hard and it keeps me motivated to continue to do so.
We had an awesome weekend full of sunshine and fun. Here are a few pictures I managed to capture:
