Well. We knew it was coming. The end of Spring Break. Yes, we have the weekend left still. But you know how weekends are... :O)
We are linking up for the Friday fun!!! Thanks Amanda and Kacey!!
Stacia: So, my husband and I had a wonderful time at the beach for Spring Break! The weather was gorgeous on St. Simons Island...I didn't want to leave. :) We enjoyed food and drinks overlooking the ocean, walked on the beach, rode bikes, and just relaxed. Hard to be back to reality!!!
Come and join us on Sunday or any day next week by linking up a Math Mentor Text!!
Jessica for a mentor sentence series. If you missed it, click the picture below and it will take you to the start of it all!
Amanda: I went back to the gym this week. If you missed the saga of my first day back, click HERE and go to the bottom. Why in the world I started with a spin class thinking it would be easier, I don't know. This is probably why I haven't been to the gym in a year. So, I didn't go back on Tuesday because we had plans to do something FUN (which did not include spinning) and my son had soccer practice and I just couldn't fit it all in. But, I did go back on Wednesday and did what's called a pump class (because you pump iron!). I did wimpy weights...as in 2.5 lbs on each side of my bar. When they said, add more weight, I said, not on you life! I have done this class before and I know what happens afterward. When I told my husband I only did wimpy weights, I could tell he was thinking what's the point. He understood yesterday when I couldn't walk. Or bend. Or lift my arms. I told him he could come with me next time. He said, no thanks.
On Thursday I decided to go to kick-boxing, hoping to work some of the kinks out. Ha. Yeah. Just trying to make my body jump around and punch was comical because I wasn't moving as quick as I should have been due to the soreness I was already feeling. And, there was a lot of jiggle going on that I did NOT care for. That's probably the only thing that kept me going since no one wants any kind of jiggle happening with bathing suit season coming up.
I have to say that I am way worse today. Once I sit down, it takes an act of Congress just to get me back up. We are planning on taking the kids to Stone Mountain. It was my brilliant idea to climb the mountain. My husband asked if I was sure about this, due to the state I am in (with a smirk). Of course, I smiled and said that I would be fine and that I had no idea what he was talking about. Inside, though, I'm a little worried...wish me luck...especially if I have to carry a 2 year old part of the way...oh...my...
(I'll try to get pictures...not of my pain...of my family on top of the mountain...) :O)
