Those of you that follow this little blog know that I'm a huge turbo kick boxing fan. I try to go twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and my body literally aches if I don't go for a longer length of time. I'm a firm believer of switching up your work out routines for muscle confusion and to avoid pure workout boredom. So today I decided to take my first stepping class. I call it stepping, but 24 Hour Fitness calls it "Power Sculpt". It's cardio and strength training combined into one class. The first half is more cardio focused...with stepping moves and stretching in between sets. The second half is muscle training focused...push-ups, weights, and other weight strenghtening moves are used. Let me tell ya, I thought I was in good shape but by the end of the WARM UP...I was already sweating like a pig. The instructor called me out though and said I was following along and was pretty impressed was me (she knew I was new to the class). I'll definitely be going again and making it a once a week thing. I'm already feeling the pain and soreness from it...so it must be working right? Tomorrow is TKB again and next Monday I'm going to try the Zumba class. What is Zumba? I have no idea! But I'll find out!
My outfit today was totally inspired (meaning copied) by Rosa of Love at First Shop. She paired an olive colored J.Crew cardigan with the Anthro Boutonniere Dress and brown boots. I thought the look was so cute so I decided to re-create it. Here's my version:
Cardigan - Nordstroms Halogen
Dress - Anthropologie Camilla Dress
Boots - Aerosoles from DSW
I tried different ways of posing today and wanted to test out the lovely "look at shoes naturally" pose that I see so many bloggers flawlessly do. Somehow that didn't really work for me. I just look like I lost something! Anyway, thanks, Rosa for the inspiration!
