I did not spin today – can you believe it?!?! Me either. It was a much-needed break. I think I might not spin tomorrow or Sunday too. ( We’ll see). Amara had her TV debut this morning at 6:45 am ish. Miles and I sat at home and watched. She had her 4 seconds of fame! It was cute. She had a great time with Matt.
He even took her out to breakfast afterwards. Lucky! She held up pretty well today considering the lack of sleep.
Since I could not teach my early spin today, Miles and I headed to the gym around 8:45 this morning. I hopped on my beloved and neglected elliptical ( I love that thing) for 30 minutes of fun intervals. I kept my heart rate on the high side too. Might as well, right?!?! I then went on the treadmill. I am indifferent with this contraption. Sometimes I don’t mind it, but mostly I hate it. I did a program on it today – I forgot which one, but it had hill climbs etc. I was climbing at a 9% incline at times. I turned it into a run/walk. The walks were minimal, but incorporated. I did 1.8 miles in 20 minutes.
I did teach one class today at noon. Totally Toned. The 2 ladies that showed up, showed up with a purpose! They kicked butt! We did lots and lots of core today. Lots of twists and engaging going on in the basement this afternoon. After class I went home and did my own workout in my living room while watching The Biggest Loser. I am still using the book This is Why You’re Fat for my circuits. I think I have 5 more to do before it’s time to move on to a different book of exercises. Today was more chest and triceps and ab work. I could really feel those muscles today while I shook my asana in hot yoga again. Those salutations with down and up dogs and whatever the other names are – really hurt; especially after a weights workout! It’s all good though. It was a lot of fun – as usual. I attempted to do the crow and then shoot out to a high plank. I kind of did it! I also attempted the wheel pose….kinda sorta. We did lots of hip stuff too – OUCH! I know what I need to work on for sure. Half pigeon and frog poses are kind of like the devil – I assume ( I never met him well… not that I know of). I am so glad I was able to make it to hot yoga 3 times this week!
I am not sure what to do tomorrow. The weather might be bad and it might not. Freezing rain would not be good for running outdoors. So tomorrow I will get up around 6:45 ish and see what the weather is doing before I make a decision. I will either run outside by myself or go to the gym and NOT spin! I hope I get to run. It’s been a while since I said that. Besides my workout I have no plans for tomorrow. Amara does. She and my brother ( her Uncle D.) are going on a santa train ride. I had to run it by her first to gauge her freak out ( not in a good way) mode. She seems ok with it. There might even be a princess on board for those that want nothing to do with Mr. Claus.
