Burnin' Off Grits at GRIT

I had a rocky start to my Saturday morning but I knew it was nothing but the devil as my family would say as I was determined to work out in SF. I thought I left my cell phone at home so I drove back home...it was actually at the bottom of my purse. I think I was subconsciously trying to flake out. I got back on the road to the land of roly poly jackets, put on the new The xx album, and went on autopilot. When I parked my car I didn't see the sign at first but I followed the trail of black yoga pants and found my way. 

For some reason I thought my friend, Dynasti, was teaching yoga but she actually teaches GRIT! I was scared but I reminded myself of what I posted yesterday so I knew I had to go. GRIT is all about high intensity interval training (HIIT) but instead of tracking reps you stay in tune with the music. I looked around the class and these girls had some serious booties, ALL RACES, so I knew I had to kick it in gear.

Dynasti was in beast mode and not messing around. The cardio was hard but the music made it fun even though I couldn't keep up. When she said, "Ok, now let's get in to child's pose" I thought Yesss! Then she says, "ABS!" and I said Nooo! I had another friend in the class and we looked at each other like WTH!  At one point I just stopped and laughed and even snorted because I am so out of shape but when the skinny girls took a break I felt validated. Then Dynasti say, pretty sure directly at me, "It's ok to stop, take a break and get right back in there." Yeah, she was talking to me. But I survived! If you are in SF you should definitely go.
