- I got a late start this week. Last weekend was crazy busy so there wasn’t a whole lot of fitness going on. Tuesday was my first yoga session of the week, which was a 30 min session brought on by Comcast On Demand.
- Earlier in the week, Courtney told her readers about MyBarre3 and later offered a 15 day trial. I jumped at this chance after reading her post about the sire and their workouts. Last night, I was pretty tired but decided to get a quick 10 min yoga session in using one of the videos from the site. If their all as awesome as the video I chose, I am on board. I loved it! They are fabulous! I will definitely being do more of those workouts
How is everyone’s Memorial Day weekend going? We’re hanging in here and bracing for Tropical Storm Beryl. Personally, I’m not worried. I think we’ll end up with lots of rain and wind but nothing that will cause too much damage, although a few trees have fallen in the city. We’ve been under a Tropical Storm Warning since yesterday morning and it’s supposed to last through Tuesday. This morning they added a Flood Watch too. We’re slightly inland so I’m not worried about flooding at all.
As we speak, the front of the storm is beginning to hit Jacksonville, FL and expected to make landfall in a few hours.
I am SO happy it’s Friday! This week is almost over and this week has been crazy enough.
We arrive to the ER just before midnight and thankfully don’t have to wait long to be seen. The doctor immediately wants some X-Rays. That was difficult. My poor baby was in so much pain and I had to hold her down. After X-Rays, the orthopedist trauma surgeon comes in and tells us my sweet little 15 month old daughter has broken her arm above the elbow, and the bone has shifted. She would have to have surgery in the morning so they could move it back and possibly put pins in her arm to keep in place. He, of course, has to go through the risks of the surgery and how unfortunately this procedure is not as simple as many people think. Because she will have to have surgery, they will be admitting her, and a tired mom, 6 year old and 15 month old are finally settled into a room around 3:30 in the morning. It wasn’t until 4am before Dylan fell asleep, who was such a trooper through the whole thing. Not one complaint from that kid. Gotta love him. After giving Jordyn some pain medication she has fallen asleep, but they still had a million questions for me and I needed to call TJ.
Just a mere few hours later, Jordyn goes in for surgery and comes out great. The doctors all praised how well she did. Look at this poor baby.
We finally head home around 6:30 and all I wanted was dinner and to relax. It was take out from Outback and an about an hour at home with TJ and the kids before TJ had to head back to work and the kids went to bed. Not my favorite Mother’s Day. On the bright side, they did get me some pretty great gifts.
My card is so cute along with my very own newspaper. And my fitbit is AWESOME! Next week, I’ll share some of the details of the fitbit.
After an exhausting first night home, I have to work Monday and come and am exhausted. The lack of sleep from the two previous days has me so worn out that a workout is not happening. I obviously didn’t get a workout in Sunday either due the events, so I have every intent on kicking butt, the rest of the week.
Then in the middle of the night I wake up sick. UGH! I felt horrible and it was definitely carrying over to Tuesday. I never call out of work but there was no way I was going in. I did start feeling better as the day went on but I wasn’t 100%, so again no workout. As for Wednesday and yesterday, I don’t really have an excuse for not working out. I was going to go to the gym after work Wednesday but TJ had a meeting to go at school and I took some pictures of a friend in her wedding dress so her mom could see it, but I could have done an at-home workout and didn’t. Bad Sabrina. LOL! And yesterday was worse. I wanted to go running, but it was running so I didn’t go and that was it. TJ had no where to be so I could have gone to the gym, or could have easily done an at-home workout. Double bad Sabrina. And today, I get home from work and Dylan is sick. I’m ready for a new week. LOL!
I DID get up this morning and head to the gym. It’s about time!
I also did a weigh-in since I missed my Sunday weigh-in. I am down .2 pounds. Can’t complain since I didn’t really workout.
And I ate pretty well today too.
Thomas 100 Calorie English Muffin topped with one wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese and some Chia Seeds, and washed down with Silk Pure Almond Dark Chocolate Milk (my excuse for this was I keep hearing how low-fat chocolate milk is a good after-workout snack. hehe). Sorry about no picture but I completely forgot to take a picture of this
Grande Iced Coffee with Sugar Free Hazelnut
Spinach Salad topped with a hard boiled egg, tortilla strips, almond slices, feta and sweet onion vinegarette dressing
Caramel Brownie Luna Bar
Kroger Frozen Shrimp Stir-Fry
After a not so good workout week, I plan on combining Weeks 2 and 3 in the C25K program to catch myself up along with some more gym time and I need to get more strength training in. I’ve done some but not enough.
On a completely random topic, look at my new shoes!
As for this weekend, other than workouts, I have more pictures to take. This time it’s a combo of engagement pictures/family pictures for a friend (if the rain holds up like it’s supposed to) and a baby shower in Beaufort on Sunday.
What are your weekend plans? Are they social, or are they productive things like housework and yard work?
So, I’m not keeping up with this as much as I would like. 🙁 Right now, we don’t have the internet at my house. It keeps cutting out on us so we left AT&T and are switching to Comcast, but they can’t come out til Monday or Tuesday so reading my blogs in Google Reader from my phone isn’t the easiest and either is blogging for that matter.
I started the program with a friend. She wasn’t so sure it was something she could do but she gave it a shot and I think she did great for not being a runner
The next two days were in my neighborhood and on my own. I felt pretty good for both of these days and am excited to move on to the next week.
The last two weeks have flown by and this weekend is just as packed. Well tomorrow at least.
A quick update on my weight loss progress. I have been working out at least 3 days a week and eating a lot better, So far, I have lost 9 pounds! 36 more to go! I am no down to 141. I weigh in again on Sunday, so I’ll let you know how it goes. I don’t expect it to move much though. Curiosity got the better of me mid-week, so I stepped on the scale at the gym, so that loss is already included in the 9 pounds.
*For those you unaware, I know that 141 isn’t terribly high but I stand tall at measly 4’10” so thats WAY too high for a person of that size. I am working hard to attain the proper weight for my height.
Tommorow, TJ is participating in SCAD’s Sidewalk Arts Festival. With 852 squares of chalk art, it’s quite fascinating to see. The participants make up current students, alumni, and prospective students. You walk the sidewalks of the park and on either side of you there are fantastic drawings on the ground all done with chalk. The participants have a chance to win a number of prizes with the top prize being a $1,000. It’s an all day free event with tons of stuff to do for the kids. Check out some of the artwork last year!
