After a lot of struggle to get to spinning last night (taking both kids, getting them together, stopping for gas, pump didn't work, then car wouldn't start (damn battery - really need a new one), hubby comes to jump car, but his battery is covered with a big, bolted plastic thing, kids are ornery, Thing 2 proceeds to release a mega-poop and stink up the car, and at this point it's snowing like a bitch.) Luckily, a nice man stopped and helped us jump the car. I gave Thing 2 back to hubby to bring home for changing and FINALLY proceeded with Thing 1 to the gym.

And STILL got there in time for class.

But I didn't WANT to. No way. At that point, sitting in the gas station, I wanted to go home and get cozy and plop on the couch. But, frankly, that's not helping anyone. Especially not me.

So, I went to class. It was incredible, and I actually did really, really well for it being my first spin class back in, like, a year. The instructor was great, music was awesome, and I zoned into what I was there for. It worked like a charm. Kicked my ass, and I loved it. Legs aren't sore today, and neither is my ass. Hmmm... maybe I didn't work hard enough? I did feel like I wanted to give up a few times. Of course, I kept plugging, but that's usually my clue that I am working hard enough.

I didn't get my spicy shrimp last night (boo!) but hubby promised to make it tonight (yeah!) cause he wanted to get some stir-fry veggies for it. Win.
TVP® (Textured Vegetable Protein)
Last night I ended up with mixed veggies, home made tomato sauce, some TVP and low fat mozzarella on 1/2 sweet potato. It was good, and I had the otehr half for lunch today. In general I am staying away from TVP, but when the budget is so tight, and you have it on hand, you use it.

Eats for today:
B: Oats, banana, PB
S: Large tea
L: TVP/veggie/sauce/sweet potato
S: 1 cheese stick, more tea
D: spicy shrimp, veggies

Still pounding the water.

I think I am going to try a new core class at the gym tonight. I need to continue work on my core - I've been saying that forever. I get really nervous going into a new class, and I feel really out of place, but I need to GTFOI (Get the fuck over it) and GET IT DONE. Yup.

I'm not going to bore you to tears with anything else. One step at a time, saying no to one cookie/candy/drink/cake/whatever at a time. This time of year BLOWS for this shit....

Peace, friends...


  1. Great job on going to spin even with all those detours, and would be great excuses to skip. Proud of you!!

    We also have a core class at my gym and it really is great. I guarantee you probably won't be the only newbie. Good luck!

  2. Hey Kelliann congratulations on making it to the class!! I play soccer a couple of times a week but else I have to say I've been skipping the gym as much as possible which is sad.

    Have a good one :D


  3. I don't even need excuses to not go exercise...and you overcame a couple...good for you!

  4. Determined lady. I need to borrow some of that. Hope you had a nice Christmas!
