(don't know what hasay is? click on the links above ... she explains it quite nicely.)
my wii fit informed me ... rather late last night ... following a late dinner ... which is so not the norm around my house ...
shall i explain before indicating what my wii fit told me?
well. my blog. (i may have asked the question ... but i don't always require a response ... it's more of a glimpse into the dialogue of my brain-conversation ... )
so yeah. yesterday my mom was attempting to get me to make an effort to take my god
"no ... i probably wouldn't have."
case closed until mother in law calls to request an outing with stella to go ice skating! which was nixed when we realized that, although stella's hand-me-down skates from a co-worker fit fabulously last year ... this year? not so much. so instead they decided to go sledding. i fed the girls a quick lunch, thinking that i would eat when cora napped.
great. now i'm left alone ... again ... with the crabbiest toddler this side of the mississippi. (who i love dearly ... oh god, i love her so much it hurts ... but ... honestly. this general feeling of moooommmmmyyyyyy ... said in the whiniest tone ... has got to go one of these days - and nights - round the clock folks.)
so off stella goes. and when she returns ... (after cora finally went down and woke up from a short nap) ... they come with mcdonalds in hand (and a skinned up chin). which stella proceeded to share with her sister. oops. she shared the mcdonalds ... not the chin injury. screw editing. during that nap ... i did not eat. i worked on my secret photo blog. (which took FOREVER, because holy hell my computer is s.l.o.w.)
so ... now ... i've basically missed two meals that the kids have received ... which would be great for the hasaying ... except that i was STARVING!
so after a quick jaunt to the store (thank you g-ma and auntie!) for some crafting materials and milk ... and coffee creamer (because i have been going through it like no tomorrow.) i threw in a pizza. which equaled ... quick snack for the girls ... food for the mama.
and then the girls fell asleep so quickly!
and i decided to wii fit so that i could be ready for this post. and ...
(yippee! we are finally back to the original story! role call!! ... who stuck around for the ending of this never-ending-post??)
my wii fit said ...
that i had gained 1.5 pounds. sucky late night pizza poundage. but on a happy note! my wii fit age is 32! (totally cool ... because that's my actual age!)
explanation? i'm noticing much more core strength. like, when i'm in the car with another driver ... i notice that i feel much more stable during turns ... and, yes ... i know how silly that sounds. but i feel that i'm much more in control of the core of my body and how i move around. i feel much more centered and even. i don't feel like it's helping me lose pounds, yet. but i haven't been overly using the aerobic portion of it.
new goals ...
~ no soda pop ... y'all might have to hold my hand on that one (maybe i'll let myself have ONE on the weekend)
~ husband and i are thinking of doing a body cleanse over the next 10 days. i'll let you know what i think of it next week. (gross i know ... but anyone out there ever done it?? suggestions? i'm scared.)
~ pledging to do at least 15 minutes aerobics (elliptical or wii fit), 15 minutes yoga (before work) and 15 minutes balance work on the wii fit over the next week ... EVERY DAY.
and husband comes home tomorrow! for 10 full days! isn't that the most exciting thing ever?
