Beach-Ready Plan May 2009 Shape Magazine D4, W2

Today is just cardio, per the Shape plan.  I went to the Club right away after dropping daughter at school.  There was hardly anyone up there.  It was really nice.  I hate getting really sweaty with lots of other people around.  Makes it seem stuffier somehow.  

Anyhow, I did my 30 minutes on the rower & 30 on the spin cycle.  I found both marginally less hideous, with my ass hurting on BOTH machines, but somehow it still felt like a great workout.  I kept my RPM's up around 90 for most of the bike ride, I felt like I was on fire!  (and not just my butt!).  The cycle has really made my legs feel a lot better, like it stretches them out somehow.  Just another reason I love this triathlon challenge - I never bike on my own - and I miss out on all the benefits!!

On the agenda for today just a walk with Indiana and belly dance tonight.  We will have a substitute teacher tonight, so we will just be working on technique.  Should be fun.  I like the sub that is coming.  Husband & daughter are going to do a spin class while I'm at Belly Dance.  

Yesterday I ended up just walking Indiana around the neighbourhood - husband called to see if I wanted to meet him & daughter up at the Club for the Prime Rib buffet.  Who in their right mind says no to that, right?  Meanwhile, the lamb chops are on hold till tomorrow!!

Mmmmmm, not much else to report.  Oh, except that I received a belated birthday gift from one of my sisters - the most gorgeous pair of earrings I've ever seen.  I put them on immediately!  They look AWESOME!!!!!

Have a healthy day bloggers!!

    Your comment about being on fire reminded me of these lyrics from the Swedish pop singer Robyn:

    "I'm so very hot
    That when I rob your mansion
    You ain't call the cops
    You call the fire station."

    Way to go!
