....that because of Zumba, I can now do a full Zumba workout, have a drink of water, catch my breath and cool down and then go out and play frisbee and Ring-a-ring-a-rosie with my daughter. It is amazing how quickly I am able to recover, where once I would have exerted myself and then took to the couch to recover...with a bikkie .
oppotrotpppppp ppp <= That was my DD's contribution
I got a new pair of joggers yesterday and whilst comfy, they will take some getting used to. They are quite a lot bulkier that my other shoes and I have tripped myself up a bit today.
We all went to Southbank for a swim yesterday. It was nice to spend some family time outdoors, and to get DH away from his xbox for a while. DD and I also went to the playground in the afternoon (but we didn't walk there, we went to one further away- it has way better play equipment) and I finally got my Zumba in late last night. It was a big day.
Today we went to a party in a park this morning and then home for chores and then I managed to Zumba before dark -shocking - and as mentioned above, frisbee time.
I saw your challenge Goblin Queen. I checked my tape measure and compared to the results of the other girls, I am disappointed. I am loving the internal changes, the improved aerobic fitness, my stamina and recovery are all fantastic but other than that, nothing seems to be happening on the outside. My waist is about 6 or 7 centimeters smaller than when I started but I just feel that when I put my picture up at the end it will be no different to the one at the beginning.
....and then there is comments from my mother in law, like the other day I was at her place and we were having lunch and I must have got up 8 times before I managed to eat because DD wanted this or that, then she spilled her milk so I had to clean that up, blah blah blah, and mil said "It's a wonder you're not 7 stone, you're always running around everywhere". Grrrr, yes well I'm not 7 stone and thanks for pointing that out. Grrrrrr.
If only I knew my own personal recipe for weight loss. But that's like the holy grail isn't it.
*sigh* Oh well, on that positive note I will go drown my sorrows in a cup of caffeine free tea with no sugar and low fat milk.
