Hello! Well yesterday wasn't as productive as I would like it to be. I started off the morning with the usual finishing up lunches and getting kiddos off to school. I decided to start working out (serious work out). I am so out of shape, it is not funny! Of any of you who know me I had pancreatitis right after Gabby was born so I had to have emergency surgery to save my life. Then 2 years ago I had hernia surgery. I would stand up and the doctor said my guts would fall out of the space that was there, it was really nasty . I have a 16 inch vertical scar right down the middle of me and absolutely NO stomach muscles to be found. I searched for them yesterday.I am doing these crunches that use to be a piece of cake (that is part of the reason I have to exercise anyway, stupid cake). Then reverse curls HA HA HA I was laughing so hard trying to get my toosh in the air with my legs stretched up to the cieling. To no avail this did not happen. I am trying Jillian Michaels work out (Lady trainer from the Biggest Loser). I am so wimpy when I was doing my jumping jacks in warm up I thought my boobs were going to knock me in the face and throw me backwards. EEEK! It was a terrible fear as I was doing these. I have come to the conclusion that even though this lady has had 400 pound people doing this same exact workout it was under close supervision so they would not strangle themselves with their rools on their bodies. I am not giving up though. I will exercise but I am going to try the different exercise DVD's that I have to find what will work for me for cardio now and stick with the weight lifting. I eventually want to run long distance again.
I normally would not share so much information, who am I kidding I am an open book. I have gained almost 25lbs. since I moved back to the valley. I am not sure why it could be the food, stress and I don't spend the amount of time being active outdoors like I did up in the white mountains . There was a lady at church Sunday(that just had a baby 4 months ago) that had the most beautiful arms I wanted them not the wings that have sprouted recently. So wish me luck !
Today is up in the air of what I will be able to get done. I am making some bags for holding childrens blocks for a Humanitarian Project in our ward. I need to cut those out and sew them up there is only 17 so I don't think they will take that long. I really want to work on Christmas things so maybe there will be time for that along with todays home tasks and working with Alan on some projects.
So there is my day till 2:30 in a nutshell then the kiddos need picked up, dinner made and evening activities. Have a great day. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
