Today’s spinning class was particularly good.  Beth was back and I was totally in the groove.

Before class, I did 3 sets of abs (125#, 30 reps each) along with the back extension (2 sets of 10, holding a 10# disk).

I’ve been spending a lot of my “extra” time thinking the past couple of weeks.  Balance seems to be the theme.  People in the exercise world talk about strength, cardio and flexibility as the three components of exercising.  If you leave one out you are asking for problems in the long term.  I think there could be many more parts, but definitely I need to consider mental health/balance.  When I get too stressed out and my mental health is off kilter, everything is out of balance.  Like many, I have a never ending task list.  Lately, the list and my normal routines (self inflicted for the most part) have been stressing me out.  So, I’m starting to develop a plan or set of action items to help me find more balance.  Today was a great day with a mix of spinning, shopping, playing with the kids and now some quiet time for myself.
