oh the frustrations!

just a little rant, to let off some steam... you know the old saying "today is the first day of the rest of your life." anyway, new schedule, new plan of action, new me. first on the list: exercise. i had this brilliant idea... wake up early and go to the 5:30 am spin class. after hitting the snooze 3 times, i finally drag myself out of bed & get to the gym. big smiles for the guy at the front because i'm pretty thrilled with myself... it's 5:30 am and i've actually made it to the gym. he scans my card and i pleasantly ask if i need a number for the class. "nope" he replies, "it's all full up." what? people other than me actually get up at 5:30 to go to a spin class. i slowly walk back to the locker room in a daze. what i should do now? no problem... i'll just run on the tread mill, or ride a bike. it's not until i get to the locker room that i realize neither of those things would be happening. i had worn my flip flops to the gym with every intention on changing into my cycling shoes. i can't run in flip flops & the normal exercise bikes don't have clips. now feeling totally dumb, and a bit embarrassed, i realize i still have to leave. hopefully the guy at the desk didn't notice me slipping out the door. now the question is, how early do i have to get up to get a place in the class.

Woah--way too early! I respect people who wake up early to get stuff done. Wish I could do it!

You deserve a WhOO HOO for just getting to the gym at 5:30 am!!!

I am sooo sorry- that is a lot to deal with that early in the morning! Hang in there girl...

Lame. That is some dedication, if you ask me. I get all hyped up to get up that early and go the next day. It NEVER happens. So, the fact that you went at all--you get points in my book.

Wow Kell - impressive! I hate those spin classes! Last time I did that my little bum hurt SO bad afterward!

Bummer! Bummer! Good for you for getting up that early though. Way to go! I'm still hitting the snooze button.

Ummm...anything that I have GET OUT OF BED for at 5:30 a.m. (unless it's eating hot cake and/or donuts. prefererably both) it ain't gonna happen. You get credit for showing up in my book.

TIP: Find somebody to go with. It's a whole lot easier for me to get out of bed to go run 6 miles if I know my neighbor from down the street is waiting for me and expecting to meet me at 5:30.

Good luck getting into spin class! Never done one of those, but I hear they can kick some butt!

Yikes! Sorry to hear about the jammed up class--do you think they show up before the gym opens and wait in line, like for concert tickets?
A Kudo bar to you for trying!!

You totally get points for going making it there! I worked in a gym and I 'heard', since I was never there at 5:30 to see for myself, that you have to get there at least 15-20 min before the class. The people that go to early morning class are fanatics!

Bummer!! I'm amazed you got up so early to work out. You get serious props for that from me.

A couple of times I've gone to the gym like at 5 in the afternoon and leave 10 minutes after. I'm proud of you.
