i found this collage on a blog i once penned in a previous life. it is a photo montage of my previous looks. i change my looks so often, that people i know have been known to pass me straight not knowing it was me…EVEN MY OWN FATHER!
this week: 156
I can’t believe I’ve been successful netting a pound loss a week. Yay me!
So I am 11 lbs from my pre-preganancy weight, 21 lbs from my tight and toned best body weight and 31 lbs from my ” Dude, you can’t tell me nothing, drop dead super svelt” weight! haha!
A few thoughts about my first Stroller Striders Class:
- It’s a good size of 8 or so women with children of varying ages between 6 weeks and 2 years and besides the fit and cute ultra petite instructor, I was the shortest one there with the MOST KIDS! yikes
- The attendees are of varying fit levels which is great b/c I fit right in between the uber fit moms sprinting with their jogging strollers and the just-getting-out-of-bed-after- delivering moms who are slowly getting active again.
- I was pleasantly surprised at how intense it was as I was sort of expecting pretty light fair. Because it was nice outside today, we had class outdoors. We ran for blocks, did killer abdominal exercises, climbed stairs, did squats,lunges, arm work outs with a resistance bands…all in ONE HOUR. In between and during, we sang children’s songs to the kids while working out. I was stoked to realize I knew ALL THE SONGS!
- GG started to fuss half way into class and during those stationary exercises that didn’t involve us pushing our strollers but the instructor who is 4 months pregnant with her third child helped by strolling and rolling her around. It worked well right up until the last 5 minutes of cool down and stretch, then she was a Wailing Wendy.
I met two other moms from my neighborhood one county over and found out about a mom’s club in our town! cool huh?
After the class, GG and I took a trip to Starbucks and to my office to pick up mail. We then headed over to the Apple store in the mall to take my Ipod to the Apple doctors. The prognosis wasn’t good. She has an Ipod cancer and would need to be put down. Now I have to fork over $150 for a new one!!! Figures! I’m not too upset at this result because I had won her in the first place for FREE in a contest drawing held at a reception me and friends snuck into that was held at The Wynn in Las Vegas ! So this would be my first time paying for her. Now that I’m running again, I’m going to need a working Ipod to get me through those long treks.
OH MY!! As I prepare two international trips with 3 children under 6 this year, I am sooooo hoping this experiment becomes nationwide soon.
seen here chatting with Rhianna at Paris Fashion Week, Celebrity Babies is reporting her as being due in late May.
Today, After finishing prepping my taxes for the accountants, FINALLY, I plan to LEAP in the air for joy!
Isn’t this a neat idea? You want to start whittling down on the baby weight, but do not have child care arrangements or are a stay at home mom? So this woman invented this class and franchised it where moms meet up with their strollers and work out with a certified instructor. There’s even a division called Luna Moms that sponsors film fests and movie nights, a playgroup, mom’s night out and you can bring the Dads or other siblings along. It’s a win win situation. I’m excited to have learned about this program which apparently has been in all the parent magazines and the morning shows.
So you can tote the baby to the workout. I have a Bally’s membership and I’d be darned if I will hand over my baby to the teeny bopper working the childcare room at Bally’s
Wow! Moms come up with the best ideas!
I’m going to my Free First class next week (There are 15 locations in my area alone) and classes are about $50.00 a month for unlimited classes!
after GG’s 2 month Pediatrician visit, I ventured down to the department of vital records to get an official birth certificate. We are planning a couple of international trips this year and I want to be sure I get the kids’ passports given the backlog at the State Department for passports.
After paying the $23 fee and waiting merely 25 minutes , I get called to pick up the document! Yay! Score one for government office efficiency. Um Not so Fast…
After skimming it, I noticed that my birth place is listed as SRI LANKA!! doh! not!
So, I guess, somebody at the hospital was a little too fast and frisk with the drop down menu. NOW….I have to call the hospital, make them aware of the mistake and have them resubmit the information, and then venture 30 minutes from my home AGAIN or bring my own birth certificate to prove the mistake so that the office can amend the birth certificate.
I quickly surmised that all of this was the doing of that evil evil man named “Murphy” (of Murphy’s Law) reminding me that 25 minutes was entirely TOO QUICK to get something done at a government office. *sigh*
IN OTHER GG NEWS…
so the report from today’s visit is that she is 10 lbs 12 ounces and 21 1/2 inches tall. Her weight is in the 50th percentile and height 25%. So she’s short. I’m short. No worries. It’s so different to hear that about her b/c the boys were always in the 90+% for height and weight always. But then, it’s best that they take after their dad and she take after me in the height department. there goes my plan for her to be a super model! Ha ha!
** UPDATE! I HATE VACCINES FOR MAKING MY BABY INCONSOLABLE WHILE DEALING WITH THE PAIN AND WAITING FOR THE TYENOL TO KICK IN! argh!!!
