The Climb

How was your Monday?? Mine was pretty good! I have a confession though, I was up until 12:30am watching Lost on Sunday night, and I broke one of my most important rules - get your sleep! I was really tired all day yesterday, and almost decided against spinning. But as I was getting off the highway exit, I just naturally went to the Y. They say that it takes 30 days to make something a habit, and this is week 4 of me taking classes at the Y... so maybe subconsciously I just knew I had to go, and it's what I do now on Monday.

I am cool with change. However, once things change, I make a concrete routine. I like routines, I like dependable. I pack the same lunch every day, I do the same route on my weekend runs, I do a lot of the same things until it just doesn't work for me anymore. The Y is now part of my life and my routine, and that's a great thing! Now there are some days I miss because of Bite Club or other unforeseeable random events, but for the most part, I'm happy with this routine.

So spinning - My instructor last night was very much into the climbs and the jumps, so at the end of class, with the resistance being around 7-8 the entire time, I was spent! I definitely gave 110%

For dinner, I once again made the tomatillo enchiladas. This time I remembered to photograph them, but the corn tortillas were not cooperating, kept breaking, and I ended up making a layered dish. This meal is against me! 
After dinner, I mentioned to JJ that there's a TCBY not far from here, and I had a coupon for a free cone. He was excited, and said we should go right away... so we did. We definitely took the LONG way there, and it was a fiasco. What should have been a 15 minute drive was about 1 hour. Ugh. But it gave us some time to spend together, so it was worth it in the end :) 
I got a chocolate/vanilla swirl cup with raspberries, my favorite combo! 

Well that's all for Monday, have a wonderful Tuesday! 

And to answer from the previous post - the running chart is from Nike+, you can read about the nike+ running system at www.nikerunning.com


  1. Mmm TCBY! I haven't had that in forever. There was one in town when I was growing up and I used to love it!

  2. LOVE TCBY! But sadly haven't had it in quite a while. Thanks, now I have a craving! :)I swear, there is nothing like spin class. It's really one of the few exercises where I feel like i might faint when I'm done. Such a great workout! I'm glad you had a great Monday! Wishing you good things for Tuesday!

  3. 1. excited for you ;)
    2. Have you seen on exercise tv that Jillian has a yoga work out now? I tried it last night, it was really awesome. I am not big on the yoga, but attempt it now and then, I really liked hers...

  4. Only in Jacksonville can a 15-minute drive turn into an hourlong ordeal! :) Where do you do Spinning? I've been itching to try it for awhile.

    P.S. I'm finally responding to your e-mail; my weekend was kinda crazy!!

  5. Wow, I don't know how you do it... go to spinning when you're already spent... I need to find that motivation...

    Good for you - and the ice cream sounds so so so good...

  6. I love TCBY! All the ones around me are closed though:(

    Good job on making it to spinning!
