I wanted to attend spin class today. I never get to spin anymore, and that makes me sad. I was a weekly spinner at my old gym for 3 reasons:
- They had a Friday class that started super early. I pre-burned my beers.
- The instructor totally kicked my butt. I walked out of that class with jello legs and wet clothes every time.
- The instructor also refrained from “jumps.” I can stay up a while for climbs and some intervals, but my knees don’t like jumps one bit.
I quit going because no classes at my current gym meet my schedule. The one today starts at 9:15 a.m. There are a few reasons I probably won’t spin this morning. I prefer to get a better head start on the day, and Kevin and I have a lot to do. We are doing a few renovations to our guest bathroom, and we want to finish everything this weekend while still allowing a little time for some boating.
Also, I wanted cereal this morning. I ate cereal. I ate 2 to 3 servings of cereal. I’m also drinking coffee. Class starts in an hour. I think this is a recipe for disaster.
I’ll get around to spin… one day…
I’d like to fill you in on my Friday, and I have just the pictures to do it!
I went to the gym, and I had a great workout. After lifting (big sets yesterday of about 12-15 reps), I used the art trainer for 25 minutes. At the 5-, 10-, and 15-minute marks I dropped to the floor to do 10 pushups. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but pushups get my heart rate up; they’re like sprints for my arms. Also, since it was chest/back day, this machine and my additional pushups really helped burn out the muscles.
I did not leave the gym in curlers. I did, however, leave in running shoes. I brought other shoes, but I walk three blocks to work, plus lots of stairs.
I tried my overnight oats in a jar when I got to work. I should have had something with more protein. Actually, I should have had something else period. These were edible, but I’m not a fan. Oats should be hot… or in muffins, or granola, or meatloaf, or smoothies… Okay, oats can be in a lot of things, but cold milk in a jar is not one of those things.
Later, Kevin and I spent some time at Lowe’s. I get serious A.D.D. in home improvement stores. We were going to have champagne once we finished working on the house, buttttt Kev wanted to open it early. Needless to say, I did not object.
For dinner, I made pasta with meat sauce, and it was sooooooo delicious! I love that simple meal! I added extra oregano, garlic, onion, and tomato, but it is still pretty darn basic. I also have to recommend Organic Whole Wheat Penne with Milled Flax by Hodgson Mill. It’s my all-time favorite and can be purchased in bulk at Amazon.
Okay, now it’s time to finish my coffee and get back to work!
