Body Blast Me, Baby!

“Challenge yo’self!”

I am!

Has it really only been fifteen minutes??

“Faster!  Higher!”

Okay!  Okay!

Ohmigod, when is the last time I participated in an exercise class?  Hmm.  Hard to say… lol.

Come on princess

Now the weights!

If I don’t make it will someone please feed Hank the Hedgehog?

Now the steps!

Another hour??

Now the mat!

A wave of nausea

Probably unrelated

Weights again!

Should have brought water

Steps again!

Should have put my hair up

Mat again!

Go, go, go

More weights!

“Challenge yo’self!”

More steps!

I’ve got the rhythm, baby

More mat!

“Feel it in yo’ core!”


“Challenge yo’self!”


What song is this?


I should be disco dancing








Ten more!




One push up!  Just one!  Half — okay, get back up!


Jump rope!

Weights again!

Slow, hold, back

Steps again!


Mat again!


Jump rope again!

Back to weights!

Slow — hold — burn, baby

Back to steps!

Double time!

Back to mat!

Hold!  Again!  Hold!  Again!



Is it over?

Holy cow!  I made it!



“You’re looking a little flushed…”

Yeah, baby.  “It’s been a while.”

“There are other classes better suited to starting out….”

Agreed that Body Blast isn’t the most gentle re-introduction to exercise classes.  Maybe I should try angels fearing to tread or something.  You know, avoiding risk of unconsciousness.  Sage advice.

But, damn.  That was awesome.

“It’s good to jump right in!”

Love your body, baby!  Whether by measured increments or full tilt — love your body, baby.

          1. Aww, this was so nice of you to provide my old disco dancing song!
            It is a little like “All the Single Ladies” song. 🙂 🎶
            I have almost finished the whole award post. I’m excited that it is pretty close to how you did yours. Since you said we could make up questions, I combined both “new facts about myself” and “questions the nominees could answer.” I’m an old hippie who still breaks a few rules, Danica. 😊 Thank you again for this pleasant surprise. 🎆

            1. I’m happy that you like it! Yes, this song must have inspired or played a role in “All the Single Ladies”.
              Absolutely, make up your own questions! Awards should be fun and flexible. I’m looking forward to “new facts about you” and “questions nominees could answer”. Choices are good! Breaking a few rules is good for the spirit, Robin. 🙂

    1. Thanks very much! Of course you’re top of mind, Brad. 🙂
      I love your award post! Wampa Stomp! Also enjoyed your questions — and changes! — Brad Lives 🙂
      Congrats on your artwork and thanks for the update… exciting news, although we miss you in the blogosphere. You know, I’ve never had a sardine sandwich and admire your stance on McD’s… and I need to see Lawrence of Arabia. I’m surprised I haven’t seen it…I’m reflecting on this and wondering whether I’ve seen it or parts of it a long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away).
      I have to agree with you about writing when a storm is howling outside; it’s poetry in motion.
      Thank you again for your kind words and encouragement. 🙂
