Crazy Week.

It's been a crazy busy week. We had FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) Regional competition this week & I had to go to script practice Monday night (6-9pm) & then was at conference all day Tuesday (7am-5pm), by the time I got home, I didn't feel like doing anything. I did make Zumba on Wednesday & my other SIL came with me this time. I think she felt out of place, but we all do when we first start coming - I really hope she will try it a few times before she makes up her mind if it's for her or not. I didn't get any other activity in until Saturday, but I did go to the 2-hour mixed instructor class Saturday morning. It was a special class that they were offering to kinda give us a taste of all the different instructors & the type of classes that they offer. I made it through the entire two hours, but I did have to modify some. The kickboxing part really kicked my butt. I was considering trying this class, but I'm not sure I could hang with them for a full hour. I may try anyway & just see what happens. I met my SIL at the rec center this afternoon & we did a ten minute warm up on the elipticals & then headed over to the weight machines. We did several different machines & then walked the track for a bit. We were there for just over an hour. It was all I could do to even walk today - my legs were so sore from the class yesterday. I forgot to mention that in addition to doing some of the basics of the step class (without a step), kickboxing, & zumba that were led by the squat & abs queen at the end & so my legs & stomach is so sore today!!! I guess it's time to work on those areas more. Well, I'm outta here - I've got a bunch to get done tonight. Our students get the holiday tomorrow, but not the teachers - I've got inservice.

Well, I'm adjusting to working FT again & trying to manage getting in some time to work out. I forgot how easy it is to let that stuff slide by when you are working. I did manage to make Zumba on Tues morning (my last day at home) & again on Wednesday night. The rec center was closed from noon Thursday until Saturday morning & then Friday night the girls came down with what appears to be a stomach virus - so I haven't been to work out since Wednesday night. The girls appear to be on the mend today, still not quite back to normal, but better. I've got to get some laundry done & the house cleaned back up from all the sickness, so today is probably out as well. My goal is to go Monday night & at least walk the track, do Zumba on Wednesday, & try to walk again on Thursday & play Friday by ear. This Saturday morning is normally the week we have Zumba again, but this week they are doing a 2-hr class with all the instructors to let us see what all they offer. I think I'm going to try it, I might not make it all the way through the full 2-hours, but I'll try. Then hopefully, I'll get to walk with my SIL again next Sunday. Hope you all have a great week!!

Blah Week.

Well, last week was kinda blah for me. I didn't get out there & get much done at all. I've been feeling a little under the weather lately & trying to get a lot of things done before I go back to work. Thanks go out to my SIL who met me at the rec to walk the track yesterday. We didn't keep up with how many laps we walked, but we jogged 9 (that's 3/4 mile). Granted, we didn't do it all at once, but the fact that I did any jogging in a public place is a big accomplishment for me. I'm kinda stalling out on my weight loss lately. For the last two weeks, I've only lost 1/2 lb per week. I'll take anything, but it would be nice if I could get past this plateau. I know I'm going to have to get my eating under control. I'm hoping that might actually be easier for me once I'm in school with a set routine again. Well, I'm outta here - I only have a couple of days left to be home with my girls. Have a great week!!!
