No workout for me today--supposed to do cardio, but I'm going to take it easy on the ankle, which is still inexplicably sore. Next week is my STS rest week, so I'll take 2 weeks off the cardio and finish up with meso 1 this week. I get this horrible panicky feeling over it, but really, how many calories can 3 cardio sessions per week burn? I'm sure I can make up the deficit by eating cleaner and less.
Plus, Gwen, the fatling, still nurses as her primary food source and she's gaining, sooooo hopefully I'm burning lots of calories there.
Okay, trying to calm myself down here.
I'm just so bummed!
Candra--I'm sure Ryder is fine going to and from all the events. We have drug our kids all over the place as babies, including long day hikes into the middle of nowhere in the mountains. I'll post pictures sometime. I wasn't going to take a spring break as I'm just jonesing to get done, but I really need to get our garden in, so next week will be garden week. I could call it "school"
, because they will all be pitching in.
Kate--I'd love to get the dumbells, because that squatting motion to pick up the dumbell is so nice, but I'll need a pair of 35's, a pair of 40's, a 45 and a 50 (I think) and not only are they spendy, but I'm not sure my hands will be strong enough to pick them up. I think I'll just use my squat rack and go heavier. I want the money for the bike. Oooh is meso 2 Ch,sh,tri that long? The break times must add up.
Stephanie--I always use sugar to keep the peace. They all get a home made cookie (not a clean one either) or something while I workout to help keep them occupied for an hour and when dh is out of town, junk food here we come!
What's funny is my son with down syndrome is my best eater. Dds 12 and 10 are becoming interested in my healthier eating. Ds 14 "carb loads" (but his metabolism is fast) and ds 5 only eats meat and cheese, carbs, and a few fruits--no veggies and nothing green. We eat a lot of soup because it's cheap and he hates it. Dd 3 is fairly picky, but eats fruit. And Gwen eats whatever scraps she can find on the floor
. I know that's gross, but with so many kiddos, the floors could be swept several times per day and still have teeny little bits that she would root out......
Becky--good news on the scale--Sometimes the weight thing is just really mysterious...I'll eat really well and plateau or I'll eat like a pig and lose. I cannot explain it, but hey--you are doing great! (and I'm so envious of your workout--I love the HCX workouts--it'll be a while for me though.)
Well, hello to everyone else. Too much coffee for me, I guess, I've written a novel here. Trying not to eat....groan....
