Virtual Me

Got this link from WW Challengers. My Virtual Model. Here's what I came out with - it's pretty good! Although scarry when I think about how big I used to be!

Then

Now

Soon


But I've been ever such a good girl today and actually got off my ass and gone to the gym - even though Yorkie is home, which I have always used as an excuse to not go in the past.
I got there about 9.30ish this morning all set up for a long gym session followed by a chill out in the sauna. I thought I better check out when the pool was going to re-open, and guess what! It's already open! Hooray!


And better still it's open to the public from 10am til 2 pm on a Monday! So I had the chance of a gym session AND a swim. And it gets even better! When I got up stairs to the gym the lady who does the Aqua Fit was on the desk and told me the class would be running today from 11am till 12 noon, and that's it IS one of the classes covered by my membership!


So I'm thrilled to bits with this. Did about half an hour in the gym, just doing my warm up, streches and weights, including 100 crunches on the weighted "Total Abdominal" machine, then I went for an hours swim (earning myself 3 WW Bonus points) and joined the Aquafit class (Another 3 Bonus Points).


Aquafit is SUCH a laugh! And not as easy as it sounds either! I thought it would be an easy option compared to normal areobics, but it's not! You're supported by the water so its easy on the joints, but the water resistance makes every movement harder so you can feel yourself working the muscels too!


Afterwards I went for a half hour long sauna, enjoying my free coffee and the chance to get my breath back before hunger got the better of me and I had to come home.


I feel SO full of energy now too, like I could take on the world and win! I've had a nice big ham and mustard roll, and a cheecky bag of cheese and onion french fries, and now I guess I'll have to settle into the whole work thing again. I've texted Andrea to let her know the pool is open and that Aqua Fit is great, hopefully she'sll come with me next week, but even if she can't make it the other ladies in the class are very friendly so I don't think I'll have a problem keeping going.

There's another class on a wednesday afternoon that I am THINKING about going to as well, instead of the Wednesday Gym session (or maybe as well). Andrea wont be able to make that one because it clashes with her picking the kids up from school, but there's no reason why I can't do both!


OK, I've droned on enough for one day. Going to get on with some work now.


Laters all!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
