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.
