I took many strides to be able to get there: train go in at 6:38, I ran home (literally) from the train with ten pounds of books on my back (free swag from work), ran upstairs and changed in a matter of three minutes, shoved six dates with almond butter into my mouth, and off I went.
I went expecting a pretty intense workout, since I know spinning is very strenuous, however I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I was already sore from Group Power yesterday, so spinning today made me want to cry!!
I wanted to quit before the class was even half way through, but I kept telling myself that pain is only temporary and you will not regret your hard work in the end..and I definitely did not regret it! It was an awesome class and I can't wait to go back next week.
***Dinner tonight was a delicious creation made by yours truly. When I got home from spin class, there was grilled chicken laying on the counter. After thinking through my options, I decided to create a grilled chicken chop salad.
My salad included:
chopped romaine lettuce
4-5 oz.? grilled chicken
handful of craisins
handful of slivered almonds
a large dollop of plain hummus
cracked pepper and a little sea salt
Can you tell I didn't like it?

Oh hummus, why must you be so delicious. Also, ignore the face in the above photo as well. I took it while scarfing down carrots, nbd.
Wellllllll, I'm off to read my book and hit the hay! I have a fun-filled day tomorrow that includes an early wake up call. Hint: it its starts with the word made and ends with the word well. Any guesses?
