[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Tonight I went to boxing class at the gym. We started doing warm ups on the bikes. Both times I've been to spin class, I've tried standing up on the bike and haven't been able to do it and it is as frustrating as hell. That has kind of put me off spin class - it isn't as good a workout if you can't do the standing stuff, but then how am I going to get strong enough to stand if I don't go to class?
So anyway, in boxing tonight, the instructor made us stand on the bikes for 10 second sprints. I tried it and I did it. I was so excited... I felt like wooping (but I didn't).
We learnt technique. There were a few new people in the class. The instructor asked if any of the guys had boxed before. I resented the implication in that statement and was going to say, "Excuse me, but I've boxed before." But then I remembered I hadn't. Oops.
Then we did a circuit. Mostly speed ball, with some punching bag. My arms are killing me.
After class, I went to my son's place and we got pizza. I wanted souvlaki but the souvlaki shop was shut. So we got the pizza and went back to his place. I had two slices which still kept me under my calories for the day - woohoo! And that was without allowing for the exercise.
Good on ya!
