And in the other news...

I find it funny that I think about the cat's health as the news, and mine as the "other" news.

Tuesday's kick class was cancelled because the instructor is sick.  So instead of saying "hurray - a day off" I went down to the gym and got on a treadmill.  I only made it about thirty minutes, and slightly less than a mile and a half, but I got off my butt and did something.  (One of the girls tells me that these particular treadmills are actually more work than most.  They're manual, or "human powered" treadmills - so you're not merely walking, you're providing the motive force that makes the treadmill go.  You walk because they're moving, but they're moving because you walk.  Neat.)

I did it again today.  And Wednesdays are a day without classes.  This time I got there about thirty minutes before the cardio mix class started (THAT class scares the crap out of me,) and the instructor already had the music on.  That helped a lot.  Again - about a half an hour, slightly less than a mile and a half.  I'd messed up and was so hungry I was hollow when I started, so I'm kind of surprised that I made it as far as I did.

Then in the afternoon, when I desperately wanted, nay NEEDED a candy bar - I went and got myself a cup of lemon tea.  It wasn't what I wanted (not even close,) but it allowed me to bypass the candy bar.

I AM going to take tomorrow off.  For one thing, they've decided to alter my spin class.  Now it's going to involve interval training and push ups and things.  I think they're trying to kill me. 

I also have to go pick up Valentines for Charlotte to give out.

Good for you! Ya for not taking a day off because your class was cancelled. The Qi Gong class before my ZUmba class was cancelled yesterday, so they moved my Zumba class up so I got there at the end, not the beginning. I wanted to do something else, but I didn't want to walk on a treadmill. I wanted to do something dancey to music. So I turned on Satellite radio and drove the Jeep some. ;)

I hate when they add things to a class that I don't want to do. Why can't they start another class with the pushups and weights and keep that spnning class just spinning? *sigh*

I think I'm not going to hoop this morning. I feel kinda crappy.

I was going to tell you about something that gives you the taste of chocolate without being full of sugar and crap like a candy bar, but I can't think of what it is now. Chocolate isn't bad for you. It's the shit candy companies put into it that's bad. If you a really craving chocolate, you can get Breen & Black's organic chocolate at the grocery store and at least that's better than a Snickers. Snickers just make my throat burn.
