On Tuesday night I met my friend Robyn at the gym for a spin class. It was so great to see her and I really like when we can go to classes together. This particular class wasn’t my favorite, however. I struggled to keep my heart rate up and didn’t sweat as much as I normally do in class. I was pretty disappointed. I think the problem was that the bulk of the class consisted of sprints. Sprints do not get my heart rate up, unfortunately. I prefer the classes that are intervals, hill climbs and standing climbs. But that’s my personal preference.
Trust me, it was a struggle to get to 400 calories burned! After the spin class I hit yoga for half an hour. My lower back had been bothering me for a few days and I hoped yoga would fix that. Once again, the yoga instructor seemed to have psychic insight into my body because the poses were all focused on the lower back. It felt fantastic.
500 calories or so for the gym isn’t bad. I was happy and feeling better when I went home.
And now I’d like to share a game that Fat Kitty and I like to play. It’s called “Mommy tries to Read a Book.”
You too can play this game. All you need is a book and a cat. Enjoy! 🙂
