It was Body Pump this morning with Paola. The class was almost full, and it was good that I went. My head, and eyes hurt, and my stomach was churning, but I thought being with friends would help. It did.
My friend Donna, I call her gym Donna, as my English best friend is Donna too, wore a top the same fabric, and similar color, so we had to pose for photos.
I went with lighter plates when lifting, but still managed the 10 lb. plate to do ‘Clean and Press’. I even managed one at the end with only a 5 lb. plate, so got to the end with squats, lunges combination. I think I did pretty good, as some people that had more weight, had to drop theirs to finish.
Another lovely lady in the class, asked for my telephone number, as she has a really nice inspirational book that she wants to give me. She said that she has 2 copies.
Yes, it does help to workout, and be with friends. Many have gone through what I am experiencing, and you never know when you will get a down day/days, but it’s all part of grieving.
