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.

Spinning Bike

Yesterday I took my first spinning class.  Well, it wasn’t really my first spinning class.  It’s just the first spinning class that I’ve taken one in a couple of years. 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’m “Doing” Old

Doing Old
