I thought this was interesting
Of special note
At meals, eat only until satisfied but not full (The Japanese expression is "Hara hachibu ni isha irazu" - "A stomach eight-tenths full needs no doctor."
Interesting concept. HuHot buffet for lunch anyone? I want to get stuffed!

I absolutely, positively, do not understand why the instructor in my spinning class insists we keep our RPMs in the 60-65 range. How is it a spinning class if you plod around?
I usually ignore her and just spin at 90-100.
Plus, every time she's like "here comes a hill" and expects us to stand. pshaw, spin up the hill baby, spin spin spin.
In other news, spinning and circuit class (with some swimming when I'm able) and a focus on eating right lost me 7 pounds in October. Not quite as much as I'd like, but totally do-able. I'd like to think that all the weights in circuit may have put a little muscle on too.
Other than that, the bike is upstairs for the winter. Here's hoping for a short winter and an early spring (not like 2008).
