Getting there...

Yesterday at work, I walked into our staff bathroom to find someone had barfed all over the toilet and the floor. And just left it there. While I was surely a little grossed out, the first thing I thought of was, "Geez, couldn't they have got it in the toilet? All the times I've yakked up my lunch here, I've never left a mess behind!" Uhhh...What am I? Some kind of professional barfer? Ew. Just goes to show how living with a band can change your perspective on some things, not necessarily for the better.

The other night I was getting my pajamas on and, without thinking, I pulled off my jeans without unbuttoning or unzipping. You know what that means -- time to go down a size! So, I pulled out the size 16 Old Navy jeans I had bought on super sale in December. The good news? They fit! The bad news? My poor old saggy stomach is no match for these low riders. Muffin top galore! Ugh. So now what? I need to find some, dare I say, mom jeans that I can tuck the muffin top into.

The exercise must be working. Duh, right? I'm in my second week of the Angry Birds workout from Nerd Fitness. It's going really well. I'm doing my squats in the locker room before work, push-ups off the counter in my kitchen, back exercises and planks while the kids are playing. So far, I'm up to 50 squats and two minutes of planks. I'm still on level one for the pushups (40 incline) and back exercises (30 1 arm rows). I do need to move up in the back exercise, but I haven't figure out anything heavy enough to lift for a bent over row with both arms. I do have some resistance bands, so maybe I'll try those tomorrow. I love the feeling of sore muscles!

Yeah sore muscles are great because it helps remind you that they are there and that you are using them. Good for you!

First, eeewwww. I can't stand puke in any form, no matter where it is and the fact the the person just left it there without calling someone is gross.

I'm so proud of you for the exercise you're getting in.
