And I'm Back!!!

Friday, February 08, 2013

Hello Everyone!

And I'm back! Back on track, that is!!! WooHoo!!! Down 1.8 lbs this week! emoticon

Honestly, I can't say I'm doing anything different, when it comes to my routine. I am doing a spinning class 3X a week now & this past week, I've started back to walking before or after dinner for a half hour. I just like how I feel after a walk & it sets the tone for my evening right nicely! Our instructors tell me that you can burn 800-1000 calories in one hour of spin class! One of the instructors does something called Tabata (not certain about the spelling here). It's a high intensity interval training program that athletes use to increase endurance & aerobic capacity. It's supposed to burn 1000 calories in an hour & phew! It's a great workout!!! So I'm LOVIN' the Spin!!! Anyway, I'm kinda getting tired of the same ol' classes at the I was lookin' to shake things up! Spin class is doing just that!!! Shaking it up!!!

Saw my doctor for a routine check up & all is well! Labs were perfect, including a Hemaglobin A1C (blood sugar readings over a 3 month period), which was 5.3!!! My doc was very pleased!!! And so was I!!!

Hey, I hope you all are doing well! I'm hearing the weather is pretty nasty for most of the country. I gotta tell ya folks, SW Florida is very crowded right about now! I think we have more visitors than ever! And I understand why! Our weather's been gorgeous! And I wish I could share it all with you!!! So, I'm sending some your way today!!!

EnJOY a healthy & safe weekend all!!! emoticon Rose

    Congrats on the weigh in and really awesome about the A1C!! Do you keep strict count of your carbs? I am trying to get my carb count lower ad my blood sugars back in control after getting an A1C of 7.0 on 12/27/12.

    Anyways! Glad you found something you enjoy to do with the spinning class jealous on the warm weather. We just got 8 inches of snow here in Sheboygan!

    Thanks for sharing the sun with us Rose!
    Luckily we are suppose to have some on Sunday I believe. This major storm moving across right now isn't going to be too bad. Move 4 hours East though and it's a whole other story!

    Way to go on the loss! I love spin class, so glad you are enjoying it too! We had an instructor once who had us doing push-ups with the handle bars, while still standing and biking. It was intense, but an awesome class. Wish I could sign up for a class. Maybe after the tax return. Besides that, I could use some time out of the house away from kids!

    Keep up the great work Rose!
