Pleased to say I feel about 500 times better after spin class!!
I arrived 30 minutes early and did some abs:
3 sets of crunches on the stability ball—25 reps each set
3 sets of bicycle crunches—-20 reps each set
3 sets of inverse crunches with stability ball—15 reps each set
Oh my gosh, this class was a-m-a-z-i-n-g tonight! I think I pushed myself more than I ever have before and by the end of the hour, I was covered with sweat and feeling so much better about my day, myself and just…everything! I know I say this so often, but the gym really does turn everything around….If I can do it, after being on my feet racing at work for 8 1/2 hours, so can YOU! That’s my nightly pep-talk 🙂
I also made new friends, Juli and Christina, and we are going to go to more classes together next week….they were talking about wanting to try BodyPump (which I have never done) and I told them all the good things I hear about Zumba, which is offered as a new class at my gym twice a week.
After class I had one of those situations where I really just didn’t know what I wanted for dinner.…I kept picturing all my food here and NONE of it sounded good……….
So…I decided to swing by Publix and do a little pick-up-sushi-action instead! Great choice on my part because the girl behind the sushi counter made my roll (or wrap, actually) right to order in front of me. I got my favorite: shrimp summer rolls! They are chock full of raw veggies, avocado and, of course, shrimp. The spicy thai dipping sauce they come with is divine as well. 🙂
When I got home, I quickly steamed up a half cup of frozen edamame to round out the meal with some more bulk and protein!
For dessert, I had two perfect squares of my organic 70% dark chocolate bar:
While at Publix, I strolled down the bar section (obvi), still on the prowl for seasonal flavored cliff bars. Well, no pear strudel or gingerbread but I did find this:
There was only one and it totally didn’t belong…it was with the peanut butter ones! I snatched it and think I’ll bring it to my 11 hour shift tomorrow to keep me fueled. Has anyone tried this flavor?
Now that I have some food in me I realize that I am POOPED. Off to take a bubble bath and climb in bed. I work tomorrow at noon so I will post twice in the a.m.! Have a good one 🙂
Edited to add:
I’m still hungry! I think I’m going to snack on a brown rice krispie bar in my bed………hehe
