11/30/10 - Spin Class vs Chili

I love my hubby dearly. He spoils me rotten.

Because I do not, in any way shape or form, enjoy cooking.....and he loves it.....he's the cook in the house.

I got home last night, and he'd made chili.

Considering the weather outside, it was the perfect meal.

I had one small problem though....spin class at 7:00.

I can think of better meals to eat before spinning. :-)

I exercised some control and only had a small bowl before leaving....and it didn't seem to affect me at all. I was afraid I'd feel weighed down and sluggish.....but lucked out.

My sister had a spin bike saved for me when I arrived. A bike right in the front row.

I'm usually a back of the room spinner. Something about a room full of strangers staring at my butt and love handles makes me a little uneasy. :-)

So, this cross training plan seems to be working. I ran yesterday morning and spun, spinned (?) last night. (giggle) Now, if I can just get some strength training in today, I will officially be "on plan."

I stepped on the scale this morning to give myself a new starting point. I think I'll weigh in once a week, instead of daily. I guess that makes Wednesday "Weigh In Day."

Wish me luck! :-)

Ugly is right! :-)

Good luck!

I love chili but never eat it before a workout, glad to hear it didn't bother you.

Of course I'm going to wish you luck and I'll be here for your support too.

I took a risk with the chili....but, I tried to make sure I ate very little of it. It's so darned good though! :-) :-)

Stay up front. You gotta give the people in the back something to look at. Heeheee. Though, if you're gonna eat chili before a class, maybe the back is a better place for you. :)

@ Heidi - (giggle) It could have been a bad situation...that's for sure! Chili normally doesn't affect me...but there's a first time for everything. :-) :-)
