Thank you everyone for your concerns re: yesterday's mishap. Just gotta love our SparkFamily! A little Bacitracin and all this SparkLove goes a long way to making fellow keeping on tickin' when he takes a lickin'!
Went back at it today for 4 hours, kicking off with an hour of Spinning, 1/2 hr. elliptical, 1/2 hr. stationary bike, alternating with sets of upper body strength training and wrapping up with a 1/2 hour in the pool and hot tub. One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday morning!
Had a different leader for Spinning today, neat to check out another person's "style"...dimmed the lights which I liked, could tune into the music and the rhythm of the ride better. She warned that the fitness center would have limited hours tomorrow due to the holiday. And followed that by saying the hotel (which runs the fitness center) is having an awesome Easter buffet and have absolutely jam-packed their ballroom with 500 seats which are sold out for the day with a 200 people waiting list. So parking might be a pain. Not if one is cycling...heh heh! Not that I plan to go tomorrow. I chimed in after she said this: Yeah you guys are in cahoots! Fatten 'em up at the buffet so they gotta come here to burn it off! :-)
Had a chance to chat up SparkPeople with one of the staff who also works on the side as a personal trainer...encouraged her to recommend SP to her clients!
Knee is still stiff, but it could be worse...! Swimming and hot tub was heavenly!
The only disappointment? No pellets! The demand has been so great that they won't have 'em until mid-May. At least I could lock in on the lower April pricing ($199 a ton). My knee is probably smiling over the delay.
Gotta heal up for the 5 Borough ride throughout NYC next week www.bikenewyork.org/ride
Only 42 miles, but I figure it'll be an awesome way to get more familiar with the Big Apple as I've only been to mid-town Manhattan a few times (such as last Feb. when I was on Dr. Oz with a few other members of SparkPeople!). They shut down the roads that we bike on...good thing as there are 32 THOUSAND cyclists converging for the event! I'm hoping to catch up with fellow Sparker RSILVERSEA who is also going to be cycling this event!
2BMYOWN sent me an Easter SparkGoodie and warned me to not eat too many peeps...I sent the 2 Eggs SparkGoodie and said: this is as close as I get to a peep allowed in this house...lol!
Have a wonderful Easter holiday everybody!
