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!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
