Bicycles and Baggage

Every January 1st we re-evalute our lives and set resolutions for the year but who says we can’t start anew anytime we want? This past year I think I’ve re-evaluated areas of my life several times. Back in March I started working out and changed my eating habits. In May I left a job and started a new one. In July I started running for real and in December I fell off the healthy eating and workout wagon.

Looking back at how far I’ve come and where I want to go is forcing me to re-evaluate today. So, I’ve let go of some baggage recently and picked up what I love again. Focusing on my health and wellness is priority and I haven’t felt this good in a while.

If I want to change then I have to do something different and last night I certainly did! My friends and I did a spin class for the first time and leading up to the class we all had some fear of the unknown. My fear was, “how can I peddle at full speed for an hour?”

A girl next to me was kind enough to teach me a few tips before class started like the positions on the bike and how to turn the resistance up and down. I also learned how to turn down the resitance after the instructor came around and turned it up! Hehe

The instructor was very high energy, the music was motivating and there are many things I never expected. Who knew you could do push ups and squats on a spin bike? Whatever we were doing worked because I was dripping with sweat. Half way through the class I had this high like I could conquer anything until we had to turn the resistence all the way up like we were biking through mud. If I keep this up I’ll have the best ass in town!

Overall I am very happy that I did it. I felt great during, after and the morning after which is a very good sign. As I was getting ready for work this morning I had the music up and danced around. It was a great start to the day.
