Cleanse day 3 – 1 more pound down. And I’m seriously liking the way my tummy is looking.
I decided to increase my detox/weight loss potential by trying out this AWESOME new class at the gym today – it’s call Kangoo. What’s Kangoo? Have you seen those freaks at the park wearing shoes that kinda look like a ski boot with a tramanpoline spring attached to the sole? And everyone is all super bouncy in them? Yeah – that’s Kangoo! I’ve seen these peeps bouncing around Union Square and Madison Square Park and I’ve always been – as if, they totally look like idiots. I would NEVER be caught dead doing that. Yes, life is very black and white with me, until I eat my words and pretend that I never said them – this is a perfect example.
Cut to a couple of months later and there I am working out at the gym and I see this super buff girl wearing the bouncy shoes working up a sweat at the gym, and it looked super fun! So, I bite the bullet today and decided to try out a class – and it’s AWESOME. It’s kinda like a dance aerobics class done on a trampoline, and since Husband is of the uncoordinated type and never takes me dancing, I try to bust out some moves whenever I can, be it at the gym, or when I’m cooking, or just when I’m drunk by myself in my apartment.
Check out the YouTube video I found of a Kangoo class: the black dude is the one who taught me today! I especially like the Chubby McChubChub on the RHS of the screen – that’s incentive for you fatties to get off yo ass.
And ladies, if you think it’s not a hardcore workout, let me tell you that I burned 1,000 calories today. Granted, I took the Kangoo class and then I did weights and abs after that , but the class burned around 500 calories and trust me, you don’t even feel like you’re exercising. I was so into it that I didn’t even first notice at first my gym trainer friends laughing at me – but I’m sure they’re just laughing at how awesome I looked doing my dance moves.
So – now that I burned more calories than I’m actually going to be consuming all day, I feel that I can reward myself with a little treat tonight. What better treat than to attend a charity cocktail event with my good friend CY? After all, what is the best way to come off a detox juice cleanse? An open vodka bar.Read More »
