Spinning--To Shake Things Up!

Thursday, December 12, 2013

As I blogged a few weeks ago, I promised myself I'd start spinning classes once I dropped below 220 pounds. Well, I'm finally there! So this morning, off I went to a spinning class. And out I came, sweaty and weak-legged. Wasn't sure I could walk to the car . . . my legs felt like jello afterwards. This particular instructor did a lot of "standing climbs." If you're at all familiar with spinning, you'll understand my pain. I wasn't just sitting & pedaling all class . . . I was challenged. But that's a good thing! I accomplished my goal and I'll go back!!!

I'm fortunate to have a job that allows me to make my own hours--so that I can go in to work early & work through lunch--then take 2 hours mid-morning to do these classes at the gym, thus getting in the workouts I enjoy so much. Right now, I'm doing the following:

Monday - Strength Training Class (Les Mills Pump It Up)
Tuesday - Spinning Class
Wednesday - Kickboxing Class
Thursday - Spinning Class
Friday - Strength Training Class (Les Mills Pump It Up)

And usually I get home early enough that I have time to walk around the block a couple of times before my DH gets home, so I can get a little extra exercise in that way, too. So I've really been able to up my exercise routine lately & I'm finally seeing some results. Slowly, but surely.

Have a Happy Holiday everyone! If we keep at it, maybe we'll continue to lose--even if we splurge a little during the holiday festivities.

    Good for you.... it's so challenging to get that exercise in when we have so many other things we'd rather do...

    I feel your energy and I love it! You are doing such a great job. I've never tried spinning nor have seen anyone do it. I should probably google it for fun. lol. Congrats on the weight loss too! What an inspiration you are.
