Here's the deal. I have reached my goal weight(yaay). I have increased my work-outs, seriously. I now go to the gym 5 days a week, and burn upwards of 1000 calories each time. I generally don't eat as much as my program says I can. So, now I can eat some candy and still stay within my range. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I never knew stuff like twizzlers and skittles,had so many carbs. So, while I stay within my calorie range, I go way over sometimes, in carbs. Again, not good. I've got to get a handle on this, before it gets out of hand. Any suggestions? I don't eat chocolate, but I love things with white sugar. Gummy worms, jelly beans, gummy lifesavers.

I have progressed from a beginner's spin class to the Spinning Fitness class. OMG, WHAT A WORKOUT.
The lady that teaches this class is a tri-athlete, distance runner and active duty soldier.(I workout at a gym on Ft Hood, army base) The class is called spinning fitness because it incorporates hand weights, ab work and other cardio, with the spinning. It is 60 minutes of constant high intensity, up-beat, totally motivating torture. It is also the most fun I've had in a workout class in a long time. We ride the bikes for a while, get off and do 1-2 laps around the indoor track, drop and do sit-ups and push-ups, get back on the bikes, ride some more, do upper body exercises with the weights, while riding, ride, ride, do more laps, sit-ups, push-ups or what ever other exercises she thinks of. By the time we start to cool down, after about 55 minutes, I am totally soaked from head to toe. This class is so invigorating. The instructor says the calorie burn is in the 1000-1200 range. I believe it.

I have recently added "spinning " to my cardio repertoire. I have known about spinning for years, but was never interested. Step aerobics, preferably double step, was my favorite cardio class. But, I can't find a aerobics class. So, I tried spinning, and guess what? I LIKE IT!!! I've only been doing it for a week & a half now, but, so far, so good. It's a great way to work up a sweat and burn a lot of calories.

Today, a friend is taking me to San Antonio, sightseeing. I am soooo excited! I have been in Killeen/Ft Hood, Tx for 16 months, now and I have been only as far as Dallas/ Ft Worth Airport to the north and Austin to the south. The airport is about 3 hours away and Austin is about an hour away.
San Antonio is supposed to be really pretty, with lots of places of interest. My friend said to wear good walking shoes. I should probably wear my nikes, but it's so darn hot, here, I'm leaning toward flip flops. I'm going to try to use the pedometer function on my new iPod, see if I can log some extra cardio for this week.
I'm taking my camera with me, so maybe I will have some pictures to post on my spark page.

On Monday I had to cut my workout time about 1 hour short, because of some other things I needed to do that day. Yesterday, Wednesday, I couldn't workout because I went with my son to, what was, essentially, a company picnic, for his military police unit. We were out in the 95 degree heat all afternoon. Usually, when I miss my regular workout day, I go the next day. But, I can't workout tomorrow, either. At 9am, tomorrow morning, I have to be at Ft Hood(again in the 90-some degree heat) for his battalion's Change of Command ceremony. Hopefully, Friday, I will get back to the gym. I will probably go on Saturday, also, to try to make up one of those missed days.
Of course, I have also gotten off track with my nutrition program this week, too. Picnic food, Wednesday, munchy-type stuff and desserts, tomorrow. By Friday, I'm gonna have some serious "getting back on track" to do.
