I am not sure if it was the wine talking, or my inability to say “no” to things on line after 23h00 – but somewhere in this I decided to register for another not-really-fun Adventure Boot Camp.
I have done this before, so am fully aware how much TIK you must be on to register and attend one of these things.
The class starts this evening, so registering the night before, sort of gives you an idea of how committed I was to this whole “let’s get fit thing.” I was secretly hoping to be denied access to their website. Clearly their firewall needs some attention.
The weather today in Cape Town was grim. Rainy, cold and miserable. Perfect “lie on the couch in front of a gas heater with a large glass of wine” weather.
There was ABSOLUTE nothing in today that made me WANT to put on lycra, my now far too small exercise pants, and my just too short exercise shirt and run around a field whilst being screamed at.
I am not even mildly into S&M. So you can understand that I really do not get off on someone screaming at me – and me being in pain.
What it makes me want to do is swear like a pirate, and go home to drink a large glass of wine.
Tonight I went along to Adventure Boot Camp.
I had already told myself that I might as well “start tomorrow” but I knew that if I did not go TODAY, it would be pretty much tickets for tomorrow and every day that follows.
But I went. I really would love to tell you how much fun it was, and how many friends I made. Nada on both of those.
I did however eye out who were clearly the girls with way too much energy, no fat rolls, and an ability to laugh and giggle all the way through the exercises that made me pee in my pants a bit.
I have decided not to like them at all. It is also quite easy to see who they are because they wear headbands. I do not think I have ever been hot enough to wear a headband.
But maybe Jane Fonda is back in, and I just did not realise.
Either way, I am pretty sure I am going to have difficulty squatting on the toilet tomorrow. I may pop around to Cape Union Mart and see if they have one of those stand-and-pee-for-ladies things.
Elegant no. Functional yes!
