For work I attended two events at the United Center - a Bulls game and a Blackhawks game.
While I started the evenings eating the raw veggies and avoiding all carbs and alcohol. You know that didn't last too long. Great time out and fun - without too much overage in the calorie department. It was somewhat shocking at the end of the day to log all those calories and find out in 5 weeks I would gain 10 pounds :( if all my days were like that.
It was a great reminder that just a year ago - all my days were like that! I was on an upward trajectory.
No more - Change = Choice!
Here is a shot of us having fun at the Blackhawks game.
In other news, I haven't been out on my bike in a while. It's been pulled up to the ceiling for storage which makes it a bit cumbersome to get down to ride. Yup - that's my excuse. It's not too cold to ride. No snow or ice yet that would make it too scary for me. Working out has suffered - I much prefer to be outside doing something versus inside.
This past weekend when my baby was in town for a visit. He helped me explore new options.
He came to work out with my trainer one day - then the next day he went with me to my first spin class.

Went back the next day for another try :)
My son declared the spin classes"not what he was used to" LOL. Mostly he thought the music was not loud enough nor up beat enough.
Spin will be a good add to my routine. Meet some new folks and get in shape for riding next spring. I can see how regular spin could make me faster and better on the hills IRL.
OK - here were the numbers for the past week.
While I did not lost any weight - I dropped 2% in body fat this past month! That's awesome. Building muscle works too! It's not all about the scale.
