Noodle arms...

Oh my goodness man alive...

So, I went and did the BodyPump class today.
The instructor was nice and told me what equipment to gather.

She told me my weight options and said to start conservatively. 
She was like "you seem in good shape" but said to not try too much
since it was my first class and all that.

I DID stay on the conservative end...
and STILL felt like the most gigantic WIMP EVER.

 It certainly was humbling :).

My legs feel okay so far- but my ARMS?
Oh, my arms.

I  left feeling really strong.
Check out this awesomeness...
Okay- I am clearly not to the point of having actual MUSCLE yet.
Someday- oh yes, someday! 

A few hours later (after cleaning some bathrooms)
my arms feel like this...

Lifting my arm up to take this picture felt entirely too challenging..
I tried to fold some clothes.
You read correctly.
That felt too hard.
Folding.  Clothes.

I think I need to do this class way more often.
My wimpy, noodle arms need some help. 

Good thing I loved the class.


  1. Haha, those arms don't look noodly to me! I have always wanted to try a Body Pump class--one day!

  2. I'm so glad you're enjoying your classes, fun! I think your arms look great, not noodley- though I'd rather have noodley than beefy and useless which unfortunately for me is what I've got:/
