Today was my second Yoga class (actually, today it was ‘Yogilates’, which doesn’t that sound dirty? heee!) It wasn’t dirty though. Just very, very hard, especially since I was still sore from Monday. But I’m totally digging it. A high school friend has a yoga/pilates studio that she has now combined with a local gym, and they’re having a special of FREE! UNLIMITED! classes until February 7. Plus FREE! childcare. So I’m trying some of them out and I’m 99.9% sure I’m going to sign up at the end of the free period. I need some kind of structure and schedule for my workouts- otherwise, I will ALWAYS find something else to do (like blog, or work, or catch up on what’s on my DVR, or whatever) when I get some free time during Maggie’s naps. The gym is about 20 minutes from my house, but so far that hasn’t bothered me at all. I consider it ‘Me Time’, which is always good. And Maggie is so good with other people, she didn’t even blink an eye when I left her in the kid’s room for an hour.
PLUS! The good news of the week! On Sunday, I weighed myself for the first time in a couple of weeks, and I am officially LESS than I was when I got pregnant. Which, I was still about 5-10 pounds more than I would have liked, but hey. Progress! Also, I went through my closet and tried on a ton of clothes, a lot of clothes that I thought would never fit me again. Some still don’t (and probably never will- into the Good Will bag they go!) but I was able to get back into a few pairs of jeans!! I literally bounced down the hall in them to model for Dan and Maggie, who stared at me like I was insane. heh.
Countdown to when I have to wear a bathing suit in front of other people: less than 5 months. EEK! Talk about motivation…
