So... about Winn Dixie. WD is in the plaza with my gym so I took the kids over there after picking them up so we could pick up some groceries. As I walked past the meat department, I started thinking that I've lost 12 pounds and I wondered what that looked like in "meat". So I separated out about 12 pounds worth of beef... WOW! If you've lost weight and ever feel like you can't tell a difference, I recommend that you try that!
Thanks Winn Dixie
This afternoon I managed to sneak in a quick workout at the gym. Corgan was really crabby this morning because he had a sore throat, but after a nap he seemed to be feeling better (and he didn't have a fever) and Annabelle had been begging to go to "Mommy's exercise" (she LOVES the daycare there... it seriously is like going to KidZone to her) so we went. I got in 30 HARD minutes on the elliptical (384 calories burned, plus more because I did it with wrist weights on and worked my arms at the same time), then I decided to see how I could hold up with a jump rope. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with my coordination. :) When I was a kid, I loved jumping rope (never could double-dutch though). I felt like I was 12 again... except it was much harder. :) I was shooting for 10 minutes, but after about 8 minutes, the daycare lady came to tell me that Corgan was not happy. I was surprised that I even got that much time in at the gym. Hopefully he'll be totally better tomorrow so I can stay longer. :)
