Bike Your Butt Off! Why cycling and spinning are great workouts
Back when you were a kid, hopping on a two-wheeler wasn’t a way to burn off last night’s ice cream cone—it was fun. Today, many women are rekindling that childhood love by pedaling to work, competing in races, or just tooling around town. They’re finding that biking isn’t just a welcome break from mind-numbing elliptical sessions: It’s a surefire way to slim down and tone your tush.
Even a casual ride delivers a one-two punch of cardio and muscle strengthening. A 135-pound woman can blast nearly 500 calories in an hour of cycling at a comfortable clip. And each pedal stroke works your entire lower body and your core, sculpting a tight body. Hit the saddle!

When you feel motivation slipping, its difficult to re-gain focus. This also can lead to irrational negative thoughts. “I will never reach that goal” “I’ll stay like this forever!!” 
Take a deep breath, and regain focus. Make a list of your goals and make a list of the reasons why they’re important and what small steps you can make towards your goals.
