Kimbur that's awesome weight. Good for you.

Kumochi you are a testament to keeping up with fitness in your middle age.

Today I did my first spinning class, I hated it as I couldn't keep up and I don't think the instructor knew it was my first time. He just kept yelling at the lady in the red shirt (that was me). Will try with a nicer instructor.
I did manage to break the cable on the push down machine, but overall a good workout.

Zumba tonight Great workout and I like the new format. More time exercising and less trying to teach us dance steps. I can't keep in step but like exercising to the music.

Kimbur – great workout – sounds amaging. Mary – welcome back – sounds like you make the most of snow – maybe you can help Lucious enjoy it!

Crazigerl, don’t let one instructor ruin spinning for you – it can be awesome. If he’s the best available talk to him about how you are inspired, he’s trying to make it work for you.

Acky81 – sounds like an inpressive workout, I look forward to getting to know you.

I’m back after a decadent long weekend in Chicago. I hope Pam is right that vacation pounds are easy to lose –there are almost four of them! Today was running and boot camp, both went well and I worked hard.

Pure cardio today, interval training.

Thanks Abby, we are trying a new instructor tomorrow as many people said the one tomorrow is excellent and understands that different people are at different fitness levels.

Mule, I also had a long and much needed weekend, made it to the gym only once, but got wonderful walking time (at the museum and the zoo, and then wandering all over Chicago). I am not happy about discussions with the scale, but I’m blaming salt and water in the short term.

Mary, glad you’re not using absence of snow as an excuse.

Crazigerl, glad you’re going to keep spinning – it’s funny when I talk about it I say that one of the great benefits is that it is appropriate for any level of fitness, as you and your bike make it happen. My wonderful instructor (move to Boston!) always tells newbies “make it your ride, I make suggestions” – it’s challenging to try to follow all his suggestions!

I had a dentist appointment this AM so last night I said to DH “I won’t be going to the Y tomorrow, instead I’ll go for a run". He sort of whined “but I never get back to sleep when you get up at five and then are in and out of the house” – so, feeling nice, I decided to go to the Y nearer home (I don’t normally go there as the one I go to is on the way to work). It was a tight cardio area, machines right next to each other, but they were all good and functional, TV’s on each one – I’d rather be in my own thoughts, but I watched news, because it was there. Got half an hour of elliptical time, which wasn’t anything special, but better than nothing.

Abby
