Let’s Go Shopping!

As of this morning, I have lost half the weight that I set out to lose. While I am not quite back to being Little Miss Hardbody, I could be called Ms Saggy Britches. Damn this feels good! Except that my pants look kinda silly now ... time to go shopping!

My workout routine could be a little better. I am doing step aerobics twice a week, trying to get in two sculpting/weight lifting classes a week, and an abs class. I have also gotten back into yoga, which I am trying to do a couple times a week. But it's a bit of a challenge, since the time I have available for this is a bit limited. But it is better than nothing! I hope to really be able to devote more time to working out next month during semester break. Maybe I will even dare to wear shorts this summer!

Ow. Ow. Ow.

Things I learned today: I have sore muscles that didn't even know I had. I am not as young as I was. And it takes very little time to go from being little Miss Hardbody McHotpants to being an out of shape blob. Ugghhh ...

We had our first visit at the fitness club tonight, which included baseline measurements and weight. I haven't weighed myself in a long, long time ... since the weight really started piling on when I was laid off last year. (Stress? Check. Depression? Check. Unlimited time to nosh? Check!) I was truly floored at what the scale said. And the tape measure. Holy crap. Call me Cleopatra cause I am surely the Queen of Denial!

And then we actually had to, you know, exercise. Like make a concerted effort to move parts of the body and, like, work at it. I am seriously disappointed in myself. I think back to the energy and fitness I used to have, and this is just sad. I knew this wasn't going to be easy, and I wouldn't be able to just go in there, jump on the machines and go to town, but two minutes and I was dying on the gazelle stepper thingy ... I think I will start with a nice yoga class, and work up from there.

My daughter, on the other hand, was all over it. Kinda like I was 15 years ago ... gee, go figure. She wants to get in shape to be a wrestler. Yes, a wrestler ... like Hulk Hogan kinda wrestler. Uh huh ... yes, I am thinking pretty much the same thing you are ...


School is T-minus one week and counting ... Yikes! :gulp:
