I went to my spin class. Cute instructor boy chatted with me after class, asking me about my LHS T-shirt. It's a t-shirt I designed when I coached cheer at my school. He asked if I went there. I said, "no, I have been teaching there for 5 years". He said he graduated from LHS. Crazy. He graduated in 96. Really thought he was younger than me. Guess not!
Anyway... while I was spinning I was thinking .... "I am rocking this class"!!! I do exactly what he says to do. I don't slow down or back down the tension. The class is freakin hard. Have any of you taken spin before? It's not easy. I work my butt off every class. And I feel amazing every time I walk out of there. Zumba is sadly too easy for me (it gets my heart pumping, but it doesn't challenge me), so I am thankful to love this spin class. Yesterday I burned 400 calories doing 45 min on the elliptical, so I can't imagine what I am burning doing 50 min of spin. Regardless....the weight is coming off! I think I might hit 156 this week!
I feel like I am coming so far! I went 2 years without working out! I was miserable, no energy. Now I am flying through spin classes with all my might. The thought of driving across the country for 3 days makes me nervous and I have seriously debated stopping in towns where I can hit up a gym somewhere.
