So, today was a normal Spin class with Beth.  I love my Monday workout.  Last week, my knees were a bit sore and I thought I might need to readjust my settings on the new bike, but Beth checked me out and my settings are right on.  Now, I contribute my knee pain to working hard (aka standing and pushing too much).   The problem is actually a good one.  In June when I started taking the class on a regular basis, I was happy to stand a bit and make it through the class.  Now, the class goes fast and I want to do everything assigned, but my body doesn’t always cooperate.  So, my plan is to tone it back a bit on the standing and pushing and keep riding. :-)  Today was extra fun because my friend Shayna came to the class.  She loved it and is doing another class tomorrow!

I mentioned the Biggest Loser contest yesterday.  There are 67 people participating.  There are 5 prizes.  Most of the prizes are services that the JCC offers including personal training.  You can check out the details here.  Anyway, we have the option of weighing in on Mondays.  I consider my Thursday Weight Watcher weigh in “official”, but it’s nice to have a mid week check.  The first week, I was down 10.5, last week I gained 1.5 and this week I lost 7.  So, I’m down 16 pounds so far during the contest.  The winners are being based on % weight loss, inches lost and % body fat lost.  So, we’ll see what happens.  The contest runs through February 28th.
