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.
