To Spin or Not to Spin
As I mentioned recently, I’ve hit a plateau. I’m still losing inches, or fractions of inches anyway, but I’m not losing pounds. Several people have told me that spinning class is a great way to break through a plateau in weight loss. I have to admit, I’m a little intimidated by the notion of a spinning. For some reason, I’m just not sure I’ll be able to keep up. Spinning sounds really hard.
On the other hand, cyclists usually have really great legs, and while I have excellent leg strength, my legs are the area of my body that still need the most slimming. That breakdown goes something like this: legs, belly, arms, butt. Notice that I don’t have breasts on that list anywhere, but sadly, lately they are getting smaller too. Sigh. I guess that’s the price I have to pay to get in shape. Anyway back to spinning – I’m not sure why it seems so scary, but I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge. I guess now that I’ve learned that running isn’t impossible for me, trying spinning is the next step. I think I’m going to do it. Hopefully my worst fears (essentially, where I can’t keep up and pass out and fall off the bike, which actually happened to my boss once) won’t come to pass, and I’ll have a fun new activity to add to my exercise routines.
