I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared my how-this-all-started story. Maybe I am saving it. Maybe it’s too personal (as if…).
Anyway, we have a fabulous new spinning room at the gym. This is my spin buddy Mark.
Mark and I always “parked” our bikes next to each other in the old spin studio. If he was a no-show at class, I never knew where to park my bike…because I based my parkage off of his bike. Today, Mark was very disturbed by the room and the placement of the bikes. I told him, “Mark, I have learned more about you in the past five minutes, watching you freak out about the new room.” He says, “I don’t like new things.” I said, “I don’t like all these mirrors.” He nodded.
Coach M is now on a platform at the front of class. The proverbial pedestal.
That dude takes spinning to a whole new circle of hell. Tough. As. Nails.
Felt good to be moving after a few day hiatus. I am eating better, but still not super. I assume that Santa cookies will derail me tomorrow night, along with the ten bottles of wine I will have to consume in order to wrap all the tiny little presents my spoiled baby monkeys are getting.
With resolutions and dieting just around the corner for most (all) of us, I pulled some wisdom from Coach Carrie’s personal email to me earlier this week for our Fix Your Life Friday gig, with her permission of course. Since my food issues have been on my mind lately (and from your emails and comments, clearly, I am not alone in this). Thanks for your wisdom, Carrie. Self kindess is a big one…
