Mid-Week Update and Such

I just did my weigh in for OSB (my newest life line). I have lost two little pounds. Gotta start somewhere I guess. I am sticking to working out and to the Couch to 5k plan. I found a frozen yogurt that I love, it is good for getting me through a must-have-something-sweet craving. I have also been chugging a big ole glass of the H2O every time I want to put something in my mouth. I am also a big fan of Honey Wheat Pretzel braids. I found a no name brand that are just as good as Rold Gold. (or however it's spelled).
I have battle wounds and everything to prove I have been exercising. Because I am in need of some new running shoes, my right heel barely has any skin left on it. It hurts! Also, my calves are tingly and achy and so it makes me feel like I am accomplishing something. They do say no pain no gain, right?
Tonight I will indulge a bit. I am going to an actual ladies night. No, not at a seedy bar with drink specials (although that would be fun too). My cousin, who I haven't seen in years has invited me over to play. I am really excited to cut the cord for the night and be someone other than Mommy. Don't get me wrong, I love being Mommy. But a girl's got to get out every once in a while. It's so much easier for the husband to do it, since he knows I will always be here. I always have to put in some sort of effort and plead my case in order to get out on my own. I probably put a lot of that on myself (mommy guilt and all).
In closing- a dilemma. I foolishly told my dearest friend that I would attend her Body Pump Class with her tomorrow night. I am terrified. I know that she comes home from this class exhausted and in pain. And she goes every single week. She loves it! She wants me to love it too. I am afraid I am biting off more than I can chew. And I am scared to be the unfit girl in the class of Body Pump fanatics, looking all adorable and in shape in there work out gear. So, do I risk the chance of humiliation and pain and go to the class? Or do I fake illness or injury?

Hey Mama to a Diva....I suggest you go that class. You go with the attitude that you are gonna have fun. You are probably gonna be harder on yourself than everyone else in the room is. Besides, they should be supporting everyone there as well, not judging. Everyone has to start somewhere...and what if you do love it? Then you would have missed it!!!

I hear ya... You gotta get OUT every now and then... I'm having girls' night Friday! WOOHOOOO! And, congrats on the weight loss! That's great. One of my good friends teaches Body Pump, too, btw... I have NEVER gone. I'm not a gym person... (That's my excuse anyway.) LOL! And, can I just say I want to eat that child up!!!!! That's the cutest pic!!!!!
