My Ass Handed Back To Me!

Hey Loves!!!!! Happy Saturday! =) I hope you guys are having a great weekend thus far…and if NOT, go out and do something that makes you happy =)

The past few days have consisted of a lot of Studying…I mean A LOT! and also yummy food!

Thursday Night I met up with Missy for din din at 5 Burros…she was having a bad day and I needed a study break lol. We both had the Grilled Veggie Salad so that we could enjoy our drinks with ZERO guilt lol…(BALANCE PEOPLE! ha)

I also consumed some of these while studying…

DSCN6836 Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffin with Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter

And some Greens…



And like any typical person who is studying for hours and hours, sometimes you don’t want to cook and like to enjoy some frozen meals…

Amy’s Cheese Enchilada with Trader Joe’s Meatless Corndog…can I just say how much this Corndog satisfied my meat urge…Thanks Joe!


First Spinning Experience…the day I got my ass handed back to me

About a few weeks ago, I mentioned that Jess was hosting a Spin Class at Flywheel…well today was the lucky day!

I have never been to a spin class before and my only point of reference are the bikes at the gym which I loathe! So I was not sure if I was going to like this class BUT I wanted to go and support my home girl =) and I never miss an opportunity to meet fellow bloggies like Alison (SUCH a sweetheart!) and Gym Belle (it was great meeting you honey!!!!)

Mo and I were the first to arrive and the girl at the front desk said that we could have the first two bikes, we graciously declined and took two bikes in the back of the room…like I said before this was my first time in a Spin Class and I didn't want to be at the head of the class lol (do you remember that show? I loved it)

I loved the set up of the class…stadium seating with the Instructor in front. The lights were dim which was fabulous, this way no one could see the pain in my eyes hahaha.

They also had sneakers waiting for us which locked into the bike…they reminded me of Bowling/ Tap Shoes lol


I think the Number 1 factor that makes a class GREAT is the Instructor and we were blessed! Erica was amazing! She had a fabulous energy and her music choice was great! C’mon she finished the class with “Eye of the Tiger” you can’t go wrong with that! I am going to have nightmares of her yelling “Go to Torque 35!”

I think my favorite part of the class was when she added some upper body toning to the mix…she made us petal while we did reps with a weighted bar…my arms were shaking towards the end but I loved every single minute of it….

This is what I looked like AFTER the class was done…

Can you say “Sweat Session”

Final Thoughts…

I loved loved loved the class and am planning to go back again VERY soon…was it the smartest thing to try a new spin class the day before my race? Time will Tell…

After the class, I went to have brunch with Mo, Jess, Gym Belle, and a couple of Jess’s friends.

I refueled with an Egg White Omelet with Mushrooms and Cheddar Cheese, with a side of Potatoes, and Whole Wheat Toast…


Thanks Jess and Erica for a incredible opportunity!
