Well, SOMEONE played a mighty dirty trick, as the head cold that my sweet Cub brought home from his mini vacation with Granny was no treat for any of us. Fortunately, I missed the actual getting sick part. (At least *so far* I have missed it. Phew.) Wrecking Crew and I had a grand time while Cub was gone and he kept me active. We jumped, walked, played and in general just kept going.
I need to start marking down the days that I jump, ride, and work with Sonny. By the end of the week, I can't remember a darn thing from more than 12 hours previous. (CRS. Yeah, it sucks. It's also hereditary- you get it from your kids.) I'm pretty sure we did a good bit though, as I can feel a difference in my abs and legs.
The weather has been cooler, so I've been in sweat pants and not shorts. It dawned on me the other day, as Wrecker helped me clean out the closet, that my former clothes horse self has completely changed face. Oh sure, there are still some nice tops and a couple of skirts in the deep recesses of the closet, but I honestly can't remember the last time I wore any of them.
Of course, with the two little dynamos in my care all day, I am generally too tired to dress up for anything!
All in all, the week was a productive one. I feel good, and a bit stronger. Jumping is getting easier, and I aim to jump four times a week for about 15 minutes at a time. (OK- wait. That sounded wrong. I jump until my legs quit, then I sit down to catch my breath. Then I jump some more, then I flop down. But I am able to jump more, for longer, each day.) Are things fitting better? I can't really say- the sweats have always been big and baggy. Do I see a physical difference in the mirror? Honestly, I've tried to NOT look lately, instead I've been trying to go off "feel".
One thing I CAN say though--- PMS? MUCH MUCH BETTER. Not as many cravings, cramping was greatly reduced, and Dear Husband said I was much easier to live with. (I still got weepy though. Yeah yeah.. so I cry at dog food commercials. Sue me.)
OK- your turn. How'd the week go for you guys??? Laura, still feeling better? CDN- how is the sugar issue? Oregon, still walking and moving around?? AOHCM- how are you doing out there? Feeling better and moving about some now? Regina- hows the ankle? SG-- how can we help you out, getting started?
Stay strong y'all!!
