Friday's session was good, not great, but got in all my reps and weight stayed the same.
Saturday's Training (mostly cardio).....super easy, jumped in the shower and off to my girl's recital. The girls were incredible....and I loved the music they danced to (Champion of the Sea, Irish) over the ballet and lyrical jazz of the other acts....but of course that is subjective. They ended up dancing 14th out of 60 acts so I slipped out and grabbed them from backstage to take them out to dinner. Got photos of them with their flowers, etc but my camera crashed (get to that later).
I had the nicest older couple sit next to me during the performance. They were so happy to be their to watch their Grandbaby and were quite loud and boisterous....totally in appropriate, but they were so happy, I loved it! The lady was partial deaf so when she spoke I bet the surrounding 10 rows could hear her,
But she was a doll.
Dinner went well, used it as my re-load day....so I got some extra cals at dinner. Ordering and staying on target were easy...I've got this down now.
AM Training, super easy then off for a beach day. The neighboring parents of the kid's were floored when they found out the girls were mine. They assumed I was the girlfriend and their Dad had them for the weekend. The fact that they couldn't believe I was old enough or that I looked like I had ever had children was a huge compliment to my training and hard work. I eat, sleep and live this every day....there are no breaks or "days off" so it's so nice to hear something like that.
I happen to stop by the liquor store on the way back from the beach and got the once over and the older gentleman asked for my ID....seemed a bit irritated that I didn't already have it ready. But was taken aback by the birth date, so again a nice way to finish the day.
So I get home and unpack the camera...which someone put in the cooler! It was soaking wet. I pulled the battery out immediately, but right now it is malfunctioning. So we'll see if I even have a camera anymore.
Then, we went to go see the Pirate's movie...I enjoyed it but it was WAY too long. After over 20mins of previews, we were there by 8:30 and left after 11:30. Seats were really bad too. It was a packed house and I had to sit in the second row middle....ummm as any of you know who pound water all day...3 hours is a LONG time to hold it. But I managed to only bother the people on one side of me once.
1/2 day of work today, and off to the beach again. A bit of kayaking and mostly wading in the bay and enjoying the sunshine & salt air.
On my way back from the beach.....one of my little squirrels knocked of over my cooler and spilled the open topped cup I had in there with my 3rd meal in it. So I was almost 5 hours with out food.
But I loaded as soon as I got home and had a totally kick butt workout!!
I hit the weights hard and knocked Shoulders and triceps out easy. Got to bump the weights....AND ....for the first time ever was able to knock out some dips on the dip bars instead of the bench!!
OK, some of you may think "big deal" but for ME that was a 1st.
Now BBQing (still on meal plan) and a shower is in order. The showers were tied up yesterday and today, and I fell in bed last night. So I have 2 days of salt, sand, and tanning oil to clean off and out of my hair! (which I didn't dare try to run a brush through today....as anyone knows most times, no sense in fussin with hair on a beach day, it gets that wind blown look almost immediately...so I just threw it up and left.)
The Good: Best workout in a long time, really strong tonight!
The Bad: Possible broken camera
The Ugly: OK, so the hair etc...could use a good shower (but I smell like the beach, I love that smell).
I was able to get something off the camera, but it's still not working:
OK, must brag, and yes I know others people's kid pics are not that interesting. But....
Girls after dance: (may rec the dress, all my conservative dresses are way too big, and the rest of them were inappropriate for a child's recital)
Dosing on the beach. Day one was a bit windy, so had to pull on a jacket after about an hour out:
I'll figure out my camera situation and get more training pics up soon. I got the cutest new fitness things from Victoria's
Oh yes.... weight is now 121lbs and waist coming in at 26"!!!
