Ahhh spin was amazing tonight! The music MADE IT and I definitely reached my max multiple times. The instructor was this tiny girl with a huge mouth that just kept cheering and motivating us on throughout the whole thing. When she yelled “ouch!!!” herself, I knew I was working! I’m so happy I have found a cardio exercise that I love so much other than running, which I love VERY much but apparently it does not love me. I feel like I burn the same amount of calories spinning and get just as good of a cardiovascular workout so its all good! I think I am going to look for some spinning shoes though since everyone in class swears by them and one girl had cute pink ones ;). Any thoughts??
When I got home I was STARVING so please excuse my horrible food photography. My meal just was not photogenic and I was too tired and hungry to rearrange!! All throughout class I was racing towards that morningstar farms veggie burger….I could taste that burger! Seriously, food is what motivates me through gym classes—I envision my dinner in front of me!
I had this picture in my head of a hot pita stuffed with a burger, hummus, laughing cow and spinach but when I got home and attempted it, it just didn’t work. The burger didn’t fit in the pita and the pita tore. SO, I did an open faced kinda deal with some olive sundried tomato hummus and spinach on my pita half with a morningstar farms burger topped with light laughing cow on the side. As well as a random carrot.
You can’t see the hummus on the pita but its there, I promise!
I also had a vitamuffin with almond butter to satisfy my sweet tooth =)
As well as a non-pictured mug of sugar cookie tea with agave, of course.
I’m off to shower and read….my legs are veryyyy tired after body pump yesterday and spin today. I actually am not generally as sore as I thought I might be though! The sorest part of my body from body pump is my back and shoulder area from when we did squats with the dumbbell resting on our upper back….. it KILLS me. Seriously–painful. I am sort of boney and I think that is why it hurts so much, but I wish I could solve this problem because it makes squats very uncomfortable (or more uncomfortable than they SHOULD be!).
YAY FOR TOMORROW BEING FRIDAY AND RYAN COMING TO VISIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you tell I’m excited?! Love you babe! 🙂
edited to add: feelin’ snacky again……had a big scoop of almond butter right out of the jar! oops!
