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.Over 9 million people have enjoyed Bellyitch's Award-winning Celeb "bumpwatch" pregnancy and parenting blog.
