What the hell is 'cyclates'?

Today I had my ass handed to me on a silver platter

Cyclates: Spin Class (50:00) Pilates (20:00)
HR monitor: Total calories burned (580 cal)

I wasn't sure if I should go to the Cyclates class (that is what the Y calls it) this morning after the 11 mile run yesterday, but I decided to go. I promptly regretted that decision, and proceeded to get my ass handed to me for 50 minutes. Thank God she stopped at 50 minutes. I had to sit down and turn down my resistance several times to rest. My quads were screaming! After that was the pilates part of the class. I only stayed for 20 minutes of the class because I had to go meet a friend, but that was plenty.

JC French Toast/coffee (250 cal)
Lindt chocolate ball (78 cal) (Whoa! One little chocolate!)
Oatmeal/2 pieces toast (dry)/coffee (400 cal)
Yogurt & 1/4 c. cereal (150 cal)
Taco Bell: Crunch Wrap Supreme/taco (730 cal)
White cake (310 cal)

total calories in: 1783 cal (Yikes, the slippery 'bad meal' slope. One planned night turns into 2)
total calories burned from exercise: 580 cal
