Spin Class Hurts

So my wife and I decided to be brave and try out the spin class offered at our gym last night. Neither of us has ever participated in a spin class so we thought it would be a nice experience for the both of us. Well let me tell you it was not what I expected. I thought I was going to drop dead right there on the bike numerous times, and every time I managed to look up all I could see is this peppy instructor pedaling like she was in a race. I managed to last the whole class, but I am paying for it today. Lets just say the seat on the bike was not made for comfort and I now know that for a fact.

Today is going to be about making a list for odds and ends I still need to get for next week. I know I need simple things like new underwear, and prescriptions filled, but I also need things like a bike lock. So I really have to take an inventory of everything I have and make a list of what I need to get.

I'm also going to hit the gym this afternoon and get a good workout in. I think I will stick to the treadmill, the thought of sitting on a bike just isn't doing it for me right now.

I have come up with a goal for the next 6 days. I currently weigh in at 306 lbs on my home scale. My goal will be to weigh in at LIFE on Tuesday at under 300 lbs. I'm really going to concentrate on what I'm eating, and make sure I get some exercise in each day, as well as drink nothing but water. I want to be heading in the right direction going to the program.

I started yesterday by having a plain bagel for breakfast, peanut butter on whole wheat for lunch, plain chicken with asparagus for dinner, and sugar free jello for dessert. Overall I think it was probably 800-1000 calories. I felt good, not to low on energy from not eating as much as I am used to.

Well I am going to get going for the day. I really enjoyed everyones comments on yesterdays post. Please continue to comment if you can, it really is a big morale booster. Also, if you have any advice on spin class I'm all ears. Thanks for following my blog.
