The other morning before work I trooped into the city in the freezing cold and trained with Ray at PedalNYC. He put quite a beating on me in one hour's time. Now, that is a talent that should be shared with some Special Ops trying to get info from the enemy. The could invest in Ray and a TRX and we'd have all the international secrets. Until they do, if you are in the city, you should definitely try out a class at Pedal. The spin class is awesome and I am looking forward to checking out some of the other classes. It's pretty cool because they do a "30/30" so you can get spin and do yoga in one class.
|Yes, I am in pain.|
|Even harder than it looks!|

For the rest of the week, I have been trying to juggle my time so that I can get a workout in each day. Hubby has been very helpful in taking the kids to school some mornings so I can use the early hours of the day for sweating. Hoping he will not bore of this new, early morning quality time with the kids, so I can keep it up. (Thanks honey!)
I got a call last night to remind me that my amazing three-month gym membership Groupon is ending next week. The girl told me all the other membership options and none were in my budget. So, I am heading over to New York Sports Club this week with my three-month membership certificate to cash that in for 90 more days at a gym. This will change my routine around because the NYSC in my borough (yes, city people, I only have 1) is further away and I will not be able to get in a morning workout there. However, I do have a friend from my kickboxing class who goes there and I'm hoping I can have her as a "gym buddy" for a while. She lost a ton of weight and she is still at it. Definitely an inspiration! (Hi Michelle!)
This morning I hit the Stairmaster aka the BFS. When Toni and the Mamas first called it that, I was confused. Now I understand. Let's just say that the first word is Big and the third word is Stairs. :)

Whether you can or can't come, you should definitely check out the "Mamas'" Bootcamp Blogs. These ladies have made the commitment and their hard work is definitely paying off. :)
How did your first week of 2012 go down?
