I almost punched myself in the face on Saturday

Good morning bloggy peeps!!!!

I am so happy to be ALIVE today.  If you followed me on twitter, you know that I went to try a body combat class that Nikki teaches.  I knew that I was going to die because I am in no shape to be jumping around punching and kicking here. So, I prepared myself for Saturday, the day I was going to die on an exercise floor.  As I left in the morning, I gave the hubs one final kiss.  I held onto Sadie and gave her the biggest hug ever.  Then off I went to meet my destiny....

So, we arrive at the class. And yep, you guessed it, I SURVIVED!!!!!

But holy poo is that class tough.  Well, tough for me since I don't exercise. Everyone else was all smiles and "pulsing" (fancy word for jumping) around and adding extra kicks here and there, meanwhile I am just barely hanging on to my "last" breath and trying to not trip over my own feet and fall flat on my face.  Because that would be embarassing! So for 5 hours 45 minutes we punched, "pulsed", and kicked.  Now, in the beginning of class Nikki said we need to mirror her actions since it is choreagraphed... I'm like OK, I got this. NO, I don't.  Apparently I don't know what mirroring a person means and I don't know my left and right side. FAIL. So I started to follow the older woman who was in front of me, who by the way was totally kicking ass in the class.. go her!, which made it easier for me to not look completely retarded. 
I am pretty proud of myself because I made it through the class!  There is a LOT of punching and jabbing and whatever else type of punch there is in this class.  I almost punched myself so many freaking times.... In my defense, you really get into it with the music pumping.  But I am surprised I didn't walk out of there with two black eyes.  There was one point where Nikki was like "OK GUYS LET'S DO PUSH UPS WHILE KICKING OUR FEET OUT"... I yelled NO!

Nikki doing her teaching thing while I was taking pictures for documenting purproses... NOT because I needed a desperate break.

I don't think she heard me, but yeah, I didn't listen to her... :::GASP:::.  I was in the back so she couldn't really come at me and tell me to get my shit together.  Winning!

Overall, I had a great time AND I got to also meet Katie, a fellow bloggy friend!!!!  It was awesome. She also kicked ass in the class.  You go girl! And of course, our day wasn't complete without Ms. Networking who came too.

Great job! Surviving is an accomplishment in itself. PS it took me 5 minutes to find your comment thing, I had no idea where it was about to give up when I just thought, hmm "4 com" maybe that's it? lol.
