Spinning my Wheels



     Yesterday I faced one of my greatest workout fears: Spinning Class.  I tried it in the past but couldn't get through an entire hour, I found it uncomfortable.  Two years ago I bought a bike seat to ease the pain and I meant to go back.  I never did.  The Spinning room is kind of intimidating, all steamed up with super sweaty people walking out.  Yesterday I felt like a freshman in high school, unsure of where to go and how to proceed.  But I quickly met some nice folks who helped me put on my seat and set me up for success.  I was thrilled to see there were NO mirrors in the room which has deterred me from participating in classes in the past.  Seeing myself in the mirror, I compare myself to other people, which tends to be detrimental to meeting my goals.  When I get a glimpse of a skinny girl in the front row, my own goals seems so far away and I start to give up mentally.  Spinning class was devoid of the mirror --it was FUN and exhilarating with the intense music - from The Boss to Kanye and everything in between.  I made it through and burned between 800 and 900 calories!  And I felt results IMMEDIATELY in my butt, my thighs and hips.

     After my week of counting every single calorie, I was really bummed when I weighed in at Weight Watchers today and found I gained 1 pound.  Not what I was expecting.  I'm just going to keep up the good eats, continue the workouts and try to rule out the "cheat" meals.  I need to learn to eat before I enter that dreaded "Danger Zone"!

Here's the last two days of meals.  I didn't have time to figure out and write all the calories down but here's what I've got:

Saturday:
1 Trader Joe's Wheat Free Waffle (115)
2 eggs with spinach (150)
1/8 cup of Whole Grain Organic Brown Rice (20)
Trader Joe's Chicken-Less Strips (150)
5 Cheezits
Szechwan Eggplant
Shrimp & Broccoli
1/2 cup Brown Rice
Wine - 1 glass
Vodka - 1 glass

Sunday:
Balance Bar
Cheese Stick
Mixed Greens, Olives, 1/4 cucumber, 1/8 cup Feta cheese
Cindy's Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Dressing
1/2 cup Szechwan Eggplant
Organic Fusilli, onions, spinach, tomatoes, olive oil, broccoli
2 glasses wine

Keep at it Kelly! When I started spinning, I didn't lose any weight for the first two weeks and I was going three times a week. I was so mad because I was busting my butt at every class...but finally the weight started coming off. Don't give up on it, I am now addicted to spinning. It WILL tone your body more than any other workout I've experienced. Good luck!!- Ally

Oh that's so good to hear! Spinning is INTENSE and definitely a lot of bang for your buck! THANKS!

Kelly, you get frustrated w/ spinning class & I did not know u bring your own seat to those classes. "Spinning Class" without mirrors? Buy a Bike Kelly! take it for a ride in your neighborhood and you may find yourself wanting to Explore other areas on your Bike. There is no way a Spin Class can give you the workout or the Feeling of "Free Wheeling" Buy a Good Bike and Bike Rack for your vehicle and disappear on certain days and ride.

I think "weight" is overrated... Maybe because they say I have been "obese" since I was 10. At my height, they say I should be 180. Umm, hello??? I was 180 in 6th grade and I was playing sports everyday. I don't think that is "obese"...

Anyway, my point, weight is just a number. If you are honestly putting in the exercise work, eating right, and feel good after a workout, that's all that matters!

Kelly how do you keep motivated. I am so glad you write you blog. Seeing how you cope with weight loss makes me realize their are many who are in the same boat as I am in.

KMac said...

Pea, thanks for the advice on the bike, but the truth is, I need the DAYCARE at the gym, I can't bring 3 kids bike riding with me. Not at their ages anyway!

Abel :) Thanks SO much. I appreciate your words so much! Glad you are continuing to read. Let me know if you find stuff that works for you!
