I Had A Great Day!!

Early this afternoon I got to spend several hours with a friend of mine just "being us". No kids, no agenda, no real plans, except to go EAT!! We didn't even have a EATING place in mind! It was great! We ate at a mexican place that we had heard of but never eaten at, then decided to go look at some educational toys. She's getting ready to go see her mom with her little boy and they will be in the plane for at least 3 hours each way, not to mention the wait times at the airport. So she needed quiet activities for a NON-QUIET little boy. We finally found a game cartridge for his LeapPad Handheld game.

Mission accomplished!! We ate, we talked non-stop, and we found something to entertain a 6 year old boy on a plane!!

Once I got home we ate dinner, got That Other Kid in bed and did my exercise routine!
I did Level 2, Day 3 of the 30 Day Shred. I tell ya I thought Level 1 was a killer, but this Level 2 is absolutely kickin' my b*tt!!! I'm at least finally getting to the point where I know what the moves are, and I can do at least most of the moves in completion (although they are the easier versions).

So here is my rundown of tonight's workout! I did ALL THE JUMPING JACKS in the warmup!! I've always had problems with jumping jacks, even as a kid, so I was HAPPY!! Those plank jacks are killing me!! and I was sweating so bad tonight I had dh turn ac on, cuz I was afraid I wouldn't be able to breathe with all my sweat and the heat and humidity that was in my house! But I did it!! Then I did the WiiFit Hula immediately afterwards with a new 6 minute record -- 1451 spins!! So I am improving....3 1/2 weeks ago I could only do 4 spins in 70 seconds!!

And get this -- my jeans are getting REALLY BAGGY!! Finally results I can see!! I told dh I would like to go down at least 1, but preferrably 2 sizes of pants when we go to Kansas Mother's Day Weekend! So that's my goal right now!! Keep cheering for me, huh?

I just stopped by to say thank you for entering the Great Cakes Soapworks giveaway at Fiddledeedee and wish you all the best!

I've heard a lot about this "shredding" lately. It's very intriguing, but sounds painful!! I hope you meet your goal! BTW, I'm in Kansas. :)
