What was I thinking?

Do you ever have those what was I thinking moments? For example:
-Drinking caffeine too close to bedtime.
-Forgetting to bring a hoodie/sweater with you during summer when everywhere is FREEZING inside.
-Taking a nap at 7 pm, and then waking up and not being able to fall back asleep!
-Even though you are tvoing a show, you stay up to watch it anyways when you have to be up at 5 am.
-Eating your last piece of gum before buying more first.
-Eating right before a work out.
-Thinking you can pull all nighters like you were in high school.
-Mixing beer and liquor.
-Not checking the toilet paper roll before sitting down and being stuck in a predicament.
-Going to the grocery store hungry.
-Running outside and forgetting you have to run back, therefore having to call to be picked up.
-Thinking being tan=low or no spf.

Well you get the point! Now have you ever had a what was I thinking moment and it worked out for the better? Most of the time, this is not the case. But in rare circumstances, it happens. Like so:
-peanut butter and green grapes, which is divine!
-frozen grapes, it's almost like candy!
-watching seinfield while running, turns out it's pretty funny sometimes and quite distracting.
-starting a blog & seeing how much work it is, but finding it's worth it!
-taking a ginger bath which looks like diarrhea for a cold, turns out it works!
-eating more then 1 cupcake, well cupcakes can never be bad!
-purchasing a swim suit online from VS, and it actually fits and you like it!
-watching what I like about you & glee, and LOVING them.
-refusing to see any Twilight movies/read the books, then giving in and realizing you secretly like them!

Why are most of these about food? Hmm..

But, I had one of these moments last week. I crazily decided to do a bodyflow class at the gym, and then stayed for spin class after. Half way through spin I was yelling at myself and wondering where my senses were and why I thought this was a good idea!

Then last night, I decided ok, let's try this plan 1 more time. If it's is as torturous as last week, no more spinning. I did my bodyflow and was all stretched out ready to take spinning head on. About half way through spin class I was thinking, what was I thinking?! Why did I disregard spinning so much before? I actually LIKE it! And not only that, I think I am starting to love it. I know, it may be a little too soon to use the L-O-V-E word.. but I actually enjoyed some of the class. At one point I closed my eyes and imagined I was riding through beautiful snow capped mountains with the wind in my face and flying down the roads. At the moment, I knew I was in trouble. I could get used to this! Although I may look a little something like this guy in green:
I feel your pain buddy! (google)

But at the end of spin class I feel SOO good and so proud of myself for going! I love that you can make class as hard or as easy as you want, and you can still make it the entire hour! It is hard, so I like that I can challenge myself every class and not become complacent. Although my butt wishes it could become complacent to those seats! Hoping I build up calluses towards those seats! Not fun being sore for the next few days! But it is worth it! Maybe one day I will purchase something like this to plaster somewhere:
Like I said.. maybe. (google)

So alas, my what was I thinking moment has produced something new, fun, challenging, and hopefully result bearing! If you are a spinner and want a good laugh, read this ladies blog-spin class. I laughed quite hard reading this one! It is SO true! If you don't spin, check it out and see our anguish, pain,  funnnn during spin class!

Ok your turn! 
-Do you or have you taken spin class?
-Do you love it? Hate it? Sorta like it?
-What are some of your what was I thinking moments? Have any turned out good? 

Happy Wednesday! Yoga night! Woo!

This is a post I can relate to so much! I have to confess that I still have yet to go to a spin class. Glad you've fallen in love with it!

Good for you! An hour of spin is my limit, it's pretty hard to keep up the intensity for that long :)
