Tough Beginnings

So, maybe this isn't going to be as easy as I thought. I just got back from the Club Industry tradeshow in Chicago (what a fabulous city). I had a fantastic time, but staying between a three and six on the hunger scale proved to be a challenge. I ate a bagel for breakfast every day around 9AM. When the show ended around 5:30, I rushed back to the hotel to clean up and then didn't eat dinner until 8PM every night. By then I was starving!

It's also surprisingly hard to find to time to work out while working at fitness tradeshow. I hopped on a bike for 10 minutes here and there, but I haven't gotten a full workout since Monday's ride. Yikes! Now I'm back in LA, and ready to get on track.

On a brighter note, I've replaced all soda consumption with water....which hasn't been easy. Hi, I'm Niccole and I'm a dietcokeaholic.

The wheels are in motion.

We've officially begun. With the exception of those who are out of town, we had a 100% turnout for our first meeting and ride on Monday evening. What a great feeling. We'll have seven more group meetings/rides throughout the course of this program. That's it.  One per week. That means that the real power of this program lies in each of us individually to stick to our exercise schedules and follow the Healthy Habits every day.

We'll blog, we'll high five each other in the hallways, and some of us may even work out together; but while that support is important, it can only take us so far. Each one of us has the ability to create change in our lives. So keep your wheels in motion, add resistance gradually and don't stop pedaling before you reach the finish line.


When people learn that I work for a fitness company they usually envision an environment where all the employees are active and super fit. But the reality is that we here at Spin Fitness face the same challenges and struggles as everyone else.  We sit at desks all day, sometimes work long hours and find that it's not always easy to fit an exercise schedule into our busy lives with kids, school and even second jobs! So kudos to all of you who have signed up for the Spinning 8-Week Weight Loss Program!  

This is our chance to walk the walk, and to reap the healthy benefits of the program and industry that we all work so hard to support. Let's keep that in mind over these next 60 days--while it will take dedication, commitment and discipline, let's focus on the rewards we are affording ourselves: healthier lifestyles, stronger bodies, the exhilaration of being active and yes, even weight loss. On Sunday, December 14, 2008, our last day of this 8-Week program, let's all be able to say that fitness is not just our livelihoods. It's our lives.
