Train Insane or Remain the Same

Today, I woke early for Spin Class.  I was up and walking Reilly before sunrise (6:30) so that I could make my 8am class and still get to the Ale House for brunch with my derby wife (Feist E One from the Boulder County Bombers) and Alessia (her daughter.)

Spin Class.  Was.  Terrible.  I mean it was bad.  Kill Bill, naturally.  We did a five minute sprint twice, except that the second time he couldn’t tell time and it was only four minutes long.  Suri wondered why a 5 minute sprint is bad.  Pedaling as fast as you can for five minutes.  Nothing else.  First–it’s not challenging.  Second–it’s boring!  And we did it twice! Or at least Bill thinks we did it twice and that’s just as bad.  He kept messing up his timing, telling us we’d do something for a minute, then 48 seconds later telling us we were done.  The worst, though, is that he drones on and on and on about ridiculous republican bullshit forever.  We missed several intervals and over-rested today because of it.  I was super annoyed.  My usual bike was taken today, so I sat in a different one.  Conveniently there was a poll in my line of vision blocking Bill out.  Also, I couldn’t hear his droning as well.  It was sort of Charlie Brown style.  I zoned out for one of our rests/his stories, and he talked so long I got cold!  This was 45 minutes in to the class.  There was no reason for me to be cold.  Ughhh.  He was up there droning on about another instructor telling him not to waste her time–meanwhile I’m sitting there on my bike thinking I wish he wasn’t wasting mine.  Damn.  The thing that really kills me, though, is the 31 miles my bike said I’d ridden (that’s a lot–we did a lot of sprinting) and the fact that my thighs and calves hurt later in the day.  So I guess it wasn’t a total waste.  Still–I can’t wait til Tuesday.  Leslie Spin.  I miss her.

Bill has these sayings.  “Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care–and I care.”  *Vomit.*  Today was: “Train Insane or Remain the Same.”  *Double Vomit.*  I think I’ll start Contenders practice with this quote on Monday.  Hahahahaha.  Yeah right.  I am starting w/ a quote, though.

Anyway, so that.

Food:

  • Honey nut cheerios w/ 1% milk
  • Energy Bite (like 2.5 servings, I think…)
  • Lamb Burger w/ fries, ranch, and beer.
  • Dips (queso, 3 bean, cottage cheese, guacamole…) pot stickers, celery salad… … potato chips…  tortilla chips…  etc.
  • more beer.
  • wine.

Lops made this delicious Celery Salad tonight–it was so sweet too.  She made healthy food because she knew some of the Contenders are on the TBT (our holiday party was tonight.)  I ❤ Lops.  And all the rest of the Cont-ies.  I had a nice night with them tonight.

  • Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater, only 4041 steps.  😦  Sad Day.

Oi.  So yesterday I got to school thinking I’d have time before basketball to take Reilly for a walk.  I was wrong.  As a result, I sat on my rear most of the day and didn’t get very many steps in at all.  😦

The cake pops called to me again at lunch.  OMFG they are soooo good.  On the bright side, I did figure out what flavor they were on the fourth one yesterday–amaretto.  With coconut in white chocolate rolled in almonds.  Holy heaven on earth.

Since I thought I’d be heading home prior to the basketball games, I also didn’t pack a dinner.  Which worked out.  Probably because of the cake pops.  I spread my lunch and snacks out through the day and made it til I got home, starving.  Managed to remind myself about the cake pops and eat moderately rather than ravish the pantry.  I passed on Tim’s first offer of a glass of wine, but realized I probably wouldn’t sleep w/o it and ended up having a small glass (for me–prolly still a large glass for anyone else.)

On the bright side…  managed to shed those vacation pounds!  Bam.  Weighed in at 149.6 this morning.  Still a few tenths heavier than my lightest, but sweet!  And Sweets practice tonight and Spin Class tomorrow and Speed/Off skates training Friday and Body Pump Saturday mean I’m probably ending this thing on a positive note.  Which makes these last two weeks of hell worth it.  (This all assumes I don’t completely fuck myself over at Dane’s party Friday night.)  I may have to do a final weigh/measure in on Friday instead of Sat/Sun.   We’ll see.

How to gain 5lbs in one day

No really.  See:

I weighed in at 153.8lbs this morning.  After the restroom.  Holy oops.  I don’t think Cheat Days work for me.  😦

Food:

  • Jimmy Dean Delights Canadian Bacon Egg white sammie with Orange Juice
  • Greek Yogurt w/ fruit and granola, apple, 1/2 Pumpkin Costco Muffin
  • 2 pieces pepperoni pizza, 1/2 chicken breast and colby jack sammie on sourdough, 1% cottage cheese, Fuze Slenderize, Chocolate cake (with cream filling)
  • Dirty Martini w/ Bleu Cheese Olives
  • Dirty Martini w/ Olives, Coconut Shrimp, Caesar Salad, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, 8oz Filet Mignon, Lobster tail (with butter,) Red Wine, Ice Cream Sundae (Toasted coconut, chocolate sauce, real whipped cream, vanilla ice cream)  (This meal from The Outback Steakhouse–we love it there.)

Exercise:

  • 2.5 mile Reilly walk

I’m hoping the nearly 5lbs I weighed more this morning is just food still working its way through the plumbing, if you know what I mean.  After dinner, I went into a food coma at like…8pm (if that.)

Also–discovered FitBit bases my calories on my weight.  😉  Good to know.
