Spinning DVD

The last few posts on this blog have been about my love affair with spinning. I’ve finally worked up to being able to take a spinning class every other day. My rear end is no longer sore and I can really pour it on in class. Full Throttle It’s my belief that if you do… Read more

Gel Seat

Anyone who has ever taken a spinning class understands the pain of having a sore rump. While you may have the stamina and muscle endurance to take the most advanced spinning class, the rear end always separates the seasoned spinners from the beginners. Even after spending hours on wooden bleachers during basketball, football and cheerleading… Read more

Can You Lose Weight Spinning?

Spinning

I can only write from personal experience and mathematics.  Personally, I’ve only been spinning for a short period of time so whether or not I’m losing weight it’s too soon to tell.  The scale did go down a pound or two but it could be a combination of spinning and dietary habits. The Mathematics of… Read more

Spinning Bike

Okay, if you’ve read any of my recent posts, you’ll know that I’m back on the bike.  It’s been about 2 weeks and my rear end is no longer sore.  I can sit through the 45 minute class with no problem. Kicking it Up a Notch Now that I can sit through 45 minutes, I’ve… Read more

Late Night TV and Spinning

Spinning DVD

The other night I was up late and was flipping through cable channels when I happened upon a Spinning infomercial.  Of course, since I just got back into spinning, I decided to watch the infomercial. The program advertised the virtues of spinning. As part of their sales pitch, they showed several before and after pictures… Read more

I re-joined the gym last week and am on my quest to get in better shape.  I knew things were going downhill when a 4 minute… Read more

I Need a New Bike!

Low Seat

Ugh! My bike crapped out on me! Heavy Sigh! I heard a cracking sound as I approached an incline during a morning ride. Immediately after the sound, my seat started swiveling. Naturally, I had to stop to see what was going on. I hopped off the bike to find my seat, freely performing 360 °… Read more

I Joined a Gym

Gym Time

It’s been about a decade since I joined/went to a gym. It’s not because I’m anti-gym; it’s because there are so many things and projects that keep me busy and give me a proper workout. So, instead of a gym, I opted to get fit by doing practical things (building a fire pit, setting paving… Read more

Biking

It’s been quite some time since I’ve put anything new on this blog. I’m a firm believer in the adage if you have nothing to say…be quiet. Hence, I’ve been quiet. What’s New? Well, I started bike riding again. Biking is less taxing on my mature lower back and hips. Riding a bike at this… Read more

A Long Road to Health

Health Journey

The journey to health is a long and winding road (thanks Beatles), but it’s well worth the trip. It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything here. The reason I haven’t written is that I had nothing to say. Also, I’ve been busy with a host of other projects. One of my other projects… Read more
