Spinning My Wheels: @#$^@!…196.7…!*@&#%???

Stick a pint of Graeter’s in there and you got me pretty much every night…

So I went spinning today for the first time in over 3 weeks. I have been very busy working and haven’t had time to go. And I have admittedly been bad about getting my butt to the hotel gym also. When I’ve been working 2 games a day and traveling and getting up at odd hours and working until odd hours, it tends to sap my energy to go workout. And that is the excuse I’m sticking with.

Then today I went and stood on the scale. So can I tell you that at one point last summer, I was feelin’ all good about myself and got my weight down from 201 to 189! I was very proud of myself…eating salads, spinning, lifting weights, doing all the good stuff. And then football season hit and I went back up to 192. Not terrible. Then the holidays hit and I went up to 194.5. Then we roll into basketball tournament time and now I’m up to 196.7?!? Holy motherf$#%^ crap!!!

Needless to say, I am NOT happy with myself. This is gonna stop right here. I have GOT to start watching what I eat. In the past 2 weeks alone, I have had endless pizza, a couple of buffets, Graeters Ice Cream before bed, Skyline chili, mexican, indian, you name it. AND I sit on my butt all day and eat snacks and candy! It’s TERRIBLE!

So today was my wake up call. Gonna start hittin’ the weights again and going to the gym on as much of a regular basis as I can. Wish me luck everyone! But I do have ONE word of advice for my spin instructor who picked out the music for today…

“It’s Raining Men” is NOT gonna make me move any faster!!! Dammit…

    Ha – so I’m not the only one sporting an extra 7 lbs! I’m sure you’ll see results quickly. I, OTOH, am in trouble — my eating habits are fine. I just don’t *move*, and I have no desire to do so. I think I’m screwed.

    I’d love me a pint of Graeter’s, tho…..

    p.s. Thanks for sticking that song in my head!

    You do not have to give up the food you like and substitute salads. All you have to do is eat more slowly, and use a small plate so the portions look bigger. If you give up pizza or ice cream, you will only gorge on it the next time you eat it. Be sensible how you eat. Put a portion on your plate, cut it in half and put half back in the oven for some one else. Easy!!!!! Love……….mom

    According to my other brother, I’m too big to fit through a door, so don’t feel bad. I anm not by the way, I have a very large belly, a puffy face, and swollen feet, all typical of a pregnancy. Can’t wait to hit the gym though, it’s just hard carrying around all of this extra weight. GL and I love you!

    Hi – Thanks so much for this blog – I have read through all your post about your spinning classes and I love them!! I have been an spinning instructor & a trainer and presenter for the last 8 years and your pet hates about instructor are also mine!! so made me lol – i go around the country assessing and training instructors and see this all the time!! I wish more instructor would learn to COACH the class throughout the workout and guide people through the intensity of the workout not just yell at people!! ahhhhhhhh
