Today's big plans were to hit the gym for some gentle yoga and the stores for some clothing shopping.
Yesterdays trip to TJ Maxx for clothes for ME resulted in a shirt, belt, jeans for Pat, PJ's for LuLu and Wind pants for B. LuLu was very helpful in picking out things. We defined a few boundaries. Anything that looks like Hanna Montanna would wear it.. is out.
Anything with more cut outs then fabric... is out.
Anything that sparkles more then a disco ball... is out.
She came into the dressing room with me, discussed my "big belly", stretch marks and a host of other things. Yes, there were other people in the dresing area and I did hear some giggling.
Today, I woke up, got the kids ready, and prepared for the gym. The evil scale in the corner called to me, and I "checked" my progress. Well there wasn't any. My weigh in days are Wednesdays. I am not a patient person, I wanted to see a little progress...
So Gentle Yoga went out the door for a hot 45 minute date wth the elliptical machine. I found the personal trainer mode and that kicked my butt. I did a small lower leg circuit after for good measure. Maybe I will wake up tomorrow and be skinny now :)
We did hit the mall...all five of us. Several stores more then a zillion things tried on resulted in:
2 pairs of jeans for B, since his all have holes in the knees
2 pairs of shorts for B, needed for Disney, as I tried on last years and they are WAY short
2 pairs of PJ pants for B
a random shirt with a toy for B
lands end hoodie for B
lands end hoodie for A
and 2 pairs of pants for ME.. :) Whoohhoho ( Lands End has 50% mark downs BTW).
As it stands, I am glad there are laundry machines in Disney 'cause I won't have enough clothes for the week.
Tomorrow's another day!
