Today, I finally got my butt up and went to spin class! It was really great. I didn't wear my cycle shoes, because I wanted to check it out first (does that make any sense?). I really enjoyed getting back into the groove of things. The teacher was up beat and funny and the music was good. I did, however, forget how my booty hurts from the seat afterwards. That will go away in a couple of weeks.
I also went swimming. I did a quick 800 yds. I don't want to push too hard yet, since I'm just getting used to 2 a days again. AND, I enjoy swimming so much more when I remember to wear my ear plugs. I always get water in my left ear otherwise, since that's the side I breath on. And it doesn't matter that I use the alcohol drops afterwards to get rid of the water in the ear, I always get a horrible headache for the rest of the day. I feel great, now. I also remembered to bring a brush. I forgot it last time, and those that know me and my hair, know that was a disaster! I somehow lost my shampoo, though. I must have forgot it at the gym. It's a kids shampoo to get rid of chlorine. Suave makes it and it was under $2! Quite the bargain!
I ate a banana between workouts, but I was famished afterwards! I came home and heated up some rice I made the other day and a Boca Chk'n patty.
I got the recipe from the cookbook, Vegan Planet.
My brother got it for me for Christmas. This is the risotto recipe, but instead I threw all of the ingredients into the rice cooker. It tastes really good.
Do you always forget to bring something to the gym?
