Healthy, Fit, and Fabulous

Being healthy makes everything better…



Taking the Show on the Road

I’m sitting next to my baby who is munching on a Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and I’m not even tempted.  No, it’s not “hot doughnuts now.”  LOL.   I know I’ll probably splurge a few times while I’m on vacation.  If I’m going to suck up some extra calories, I want to eat things that will make me feel warm and fuzzy with each bite.  I’m totally psyched about working out, which will allow those splurges to not show on my hips and thighs.  I’ve already scouted out spin classes at L.A. Fitness.  I found one tomorrow morning, so I’m officially taking this show on the road.  Wish me luck!  This class is 20 minutes longer and certainly not a beginning class.  I hope my booty is ready:)

Leaving It All On the Bike

I was running late this morning, so I ran into spin class.  I hopped on that bike and did my own warm up.  Once the blood was pumping, I pedaled like my life depended on it.  I found something down deep that I had forgotten was there.  I can definitely say I left it all on that bike.  Sweat was dripping.  My eyes were burning, but at the end I was still standing.  This was just what I needed because I’ll be going to non-beginning spin classes when I start vacation this weekend.  I’m ready, so bring it on!  There’s nothing left but to do it.  Wish me luck.  My booty still needs it.  I hope your journey to health is going well, too.

Late Night Treadmill

I started this day off at 4 am getting ready to come back to work.  After a 2.5 hour drive and 9 hour work day, I arrived back at my hotel exhausted.  My good friend called and said she was on the treadmill.  This got me up out of bed and on the treadmill at the hotel after 9 pm.  I’m proud.  I even jogged for part of it, which is huge for me!  I hooked it up while even watching CSI Miami.  On a side note, it was a good episode:)  I can’t believe I finally got that workout in.  Woo-hoo.  Now, just 3 more to hit 4 workouts this week.  Let me start winding down for spin class in the morning.  I believe my booty is ready!

Spin Day 2

I discovered the cure for post-spinning pain.  What is it you ask?  Spinning some more!  I went in the lion’s den, aka the YMCA.  I looked straight at the bike seat and hopped on.  Ironically, by the time the class was over, I was a lot less sore than when I arrived.  I learned a new “trick” today, also.  We did hammy, hover, sprint, recover.  I let slip my first expletive in class.  LOL.  2 co-workers even showed up to the class after I had talked to them about my experience.  Who knew I had that effect on people?  Honestly, I love having them there.  They continue to make me even more accountable for going.  All of you reading this are also keeping my feet to the fire, in a nice way. Wish me luck in avoiding the evil doughnuts again at the staff meeting tomorrow morning.
3 days down, 25 to go until it’s a habit.
