It's Britney B*tch!
I've been taking a strength training class for the past two weeks. Basically, whenever I'm in the class I feel like I'm on an episode of The Biggest Loser doing a last chance workout cause I grunt a lot, sweat my ass off and my body feels like jello during and after the workout. Most of the daily workouts are timed and there's usually more guys than women in the class. I'm usually one of two ladies in the class. Anyway, the other day I was the first one done part 1 of 3 in the routine and ended up being the second person done with the workout. The guy who finished first came up to me when I was done and said, "Good job. Yeah, when I saw you were finished the first part I knew I had to pick up the pace and catch up to you." And at that minute I knew....I knew I actually am as athletic as these guys...and probably am giving them a run for their money! (and these guys aren't old and out of shape either) At the same time, I also made it a goal for myself to be the first one to finish a timed workout, especially outbeat the guys in the class. I even told the instructor afterwards and she gave me a high-5 for saying that.
Well, yesterday there were 3 guys and myself in the class. The workout: 400m run; 30 box jumps; 30 wall balls (repeat 5 times). I finished it in 25:34 minutes AND was the first one done! YEAH!!! I was so amped and barely able to move when I was done, but I knew I beat all the guys in the class and that's all I wanted to do. I'm not uber competitive, but the other night in class made me realize I'm stronger than I think I am and beating the guys would prove it to myself.
And so, I have a saying whenever I have a kick ass workout and fell pretty badass....."It's Britney Bitch!" That's right, the opening line of the Britney's Spears song Gimme More (don't judge me). Whenever I've worked out with my friends and get in a zone there's no stopping me so they've asked me, "What are you on?" I simply respond, "It's Britney Bitch!" Pretty much we laugh about it but it's kinda stuck.
So my badass goal of beating the guys in my strength class----DONE! Bring it fellas cause...It's Britney Bitch!
