Yeah! It's Friday!
Some people wonder why I would care what day of the week it is. I am a stay-at-home mom after all...that must mean I don't work. HA! Of course I work! I may not get paid with cash, but I do get lots of payment of hugs and kisses and smiles and laughter....I love my job and wouldn't change it for the world!
OK, I will get off my soapbox before I really get going here.
Training. Training. Training.
What can I say?
I'm half dead.
I'm loving it.
I'm *hating it* (not really, but you know what I mean - I hope)
I am in a world of hurt! I thought on Wednesday that my abs were going to hurt. Nope! My hamstrings and gluteus maximus was in maximum hurtville! Seriously. Every time I sit in a low chair, I grunt. My little guy thinks it's hysterical and mimics me any chance he gets!
When I walked into the gym this morning, D asked my how I was. I told him I can't even tie my shoes because it hurts so much. He smiled big and said "let's go!"
I was thinking today would be more upper body stuff to give my poor legs a bit of a break. No. Such. Luck. I told him how mean he was and at one point I said "you want me to come back, right?". He just laughed some more. All the joking aside, I know that working my lower body is going to jumpstart my weight loss. I remember when I was working with the trainer a year ago, as soon as we focused more on the legs, the weight started to move.
Speaking of weight, as of today I am down 10.7 pounds! In just a few short weeks! Only 23 more to go before being were I was a year ago Christmas. I just can't wait to start feeling the weight loss again. Some of my clothes were getting tight. Others I had to put aside because they just didn't fit well. Soon I'll be able to wear anything in my closet again!
What a great feeling!
Anyway, plans for the weekend:
My son has a birthday party to go to tomorrow afternoon then he's off to do some scouting activity. I'd like to join in on that one - they are going for a short hike. We'll see what my legs are doing.
Sunday we have church stuff - my son has his religious ed class this week. And of course it's football Sunday!! GO PATS!!!
