I took a spinning class way back in 2010, but I haven't taken one since. I wasn't opposed to it; I just never had time to get to Urban Active 30 minutes before the class started.
I got through the class just fine - although the instructor was a bit of a kook. She had spiky hair and was wearing skorts. (Not a good look for a cycling class.) She had about 0% body fat and rambled her way through class. But, she seemed harmless enough.
The class was 25 minutes of spinning and 15 minutes of AbsSpin. As usual, I was the only one sweating. But, that's OK! I felt terrific afterward. I suspect I will regret this class tomorrow - my poor booty is already hurting. Now I know how Ana Steele from 50 Shades of Grey felt.
Today's food diary:
- Churro from Costco
- 1 1/3 C Spanakopasta (Emily Bites Blog) (veggie) (dairy)
- 1 Cup Baby Spinach with 2 T Herbed Lemon-Buttermilk dressing (veggie)
- 1 glass white wine
- 3/4 C blueberries (fruit)
- 1 graham cracker
- 2 T cool whip
The Verdict: I think this was a pretty good day. Yes, I could have eaten more fruits and veggies, but 4 servings isn't terrible. The spanakopasta was DELICIOUS and I made my own salad dressing. I always forget how much better homemade salad dressing tastes. I should make it more often.
