Spin Class Kicked My Butt

Ok, so I did it. I signed up for a 2-week trial at Butterfly Life with the intention that I'll join their 6-week Move It or Lose It Challenge next week. That way I get a no-hassle, no-commitment way to see if I'm really going to stick with this whole working out thing. With this program I get full use of the club, access to a weight loss portal online, 2 meetings with a personal trainer to set my goals and follow up on my progress, and a few other things that I can't remember off hand. I'm hoping that this will kick my butt into gear.

Speaking of kicking butts, mine was kicked at spin class. The ladies showed me around to all the equipment, took my measurements and let me participate in a spin class today. Man am I out of shape - and I must have looked like I was going to have a heart attack because the spin instructor went out to the lobby and fetched me a bottle of water. It doesn't help that my rosacea goes haywire when I get my heart rate up. It's been 45 minutes since I stopped cycling and my face still isn't completely back to normal. Oh well. Maybe once I'm in better shape, I won't get so flushed. One can hope, at least.


  1. Hey thanks for stopping by all the little details! that was a great idea bout painting the base. but i have a moral delimna about painting lamps that were so expensive to begin with. I'm trying to give it a couple days to really know if i can live with/without them.

    i tried spin class once. let's just leave it at - "i TRIED spin class. once." LOL hope it works for you! i just got into a gym and i'm liking the cybex trainers.
