How has your week been? Mine has been great, and I owe most of it to My Fitness Pal and my Project 10 friends. Sidney turned 9 months last Saturday which means she can go to my gym’s daycare *cue angel’s singing music* Since I re-joined my old fitness stomping ground, I’ve lifted weights 3 times and the kids have enjoyed their time in the “play room.”
The first time I went to drop them off and go work out, the college student babysitter pulled out a little chair for Sidney to sit on when I told her it was her first time in daycare and she just turned 9 months. I had a brief “oh shit” moment when I realized this sweet girl wanted my 9 month old infant to sit on a chair. I quickly explained that she was little, couldn’t walk, and was unable to sit on chairs. Since it was slow I asked if she could just play on the floor with her and then I ran downstairs and had the quickest work out ever. Sidney survived and Jackson threw a typical 2 year old tantrum when we had to leave because he was having so much fun. That’s the thing with second kids, you know they will be fine. I probably would have run out of there screaming with Jackson because I would have been too worried to leave him.
I started following the #FitFluential hashtag on twitter and have found some great fitness women to follow (thanks to my neighbor, Kelly). Today I’m going to start doing #plankaday to build more core strength. I hope to start doing some classes at my gym also, particularly a Group Power class where you lift weights together- time to realize how weak my muscles have become!
I have purposely avoided the scales this week because my clothes are fitting better and I don’t want to obsess over numbers. I can fit into cute skirts that I haven’t worn in 3 years and that FEELS GREAT. It’s amazing how leading a healthier lifestyle can improve so much in life- quickly too!
I weighed myself this morning and was a little disappointed that I was only down .4 lbs, but I am reminding myself that the number isn’t what matters.
So the numbers for week 5 of Project 10 are:
beginning weight: 150.0
end of week 4: 145.2*
-.4 lbs for the week
-4.8 lbs total
