Day 2 – 1st Spinning Class

Saturday 29th April 2017
Pain wise I’m feeling OK, yes different parts of my body aren’t working and I find doing things a little harder than I could do them yesterday but I’m not in PAIN!
Sitting outside Sprint Spinning Studio and I’m feeling a little nervous. Well I survived and there was nothing to be nervous about (which I knew!!) I thoroughly enjoyed it!! Lorraine, the Spinning instructor was brilliant. I pushed myself, I tried my hardest to keep up, at my own level, and some, it’s amazing how amazing I feel. I sooo need to bottle this feeling and drink it on bad days!!!

The aches are starting!! As much as I want to sit down for the afternoon, I’m trying to keep active, going shopping now for my 1st ‘healthy’ shop. So before I went I did up a ‘loose’ meal plan, I picked 6 dinners from the Sprint Spinning Studio meal plan, a few lunches and what the others need (hubby & Sean). I went on my own so I was in complete control and not distracted. It went ok, it wasn’t the easiest shopping experience I’ve had, but I stuck to my list and funnily I could hear Shane’s voice in my head when I was considering buying coleslaw and garlic bread!! I went late afternoon which was probably the wrong time, straight after breakfast or lunch would be better. I found myself getting tired and hungry. I contemplated a coffee in Costa but decided against it, not that I fancied a cake, I just think I would have been taunting myself. I did treat myself again to Pink Lady apples, some fresh raspberries, face cream, a new gym top and a nice low fat yogurt. It sounds so silly but I was thinking if we are sitting down tonight watching a movie I really might like more than just a piece of fruit for my snack, so I decided I would have a yogurt and raspberries, my little treat.

I know it’s completely a mind over matter thing, I’m actually not even hungry for or craving chocolate or anything sweet but I suppose it has just become ‘normal’ for me to buy the chocolate and the crisps and have them watching a movie!! I’m working on breaking the habit and I suppose I’m learning a whole new way of life, it will take time. I really don’t feel alone though, I am getting great encouragement from family and some friends, Susan and Shane from the studio are really great, always at the end of the phone. I got so confused about kcals, carbs, fats and sugars and in a text they sorted it for me. I enjoyed my yogurt and raspberries this evening. The aches are getting more achy 🤕🤕 but it’s grand though 😊
