A little of this and a little of that!

Sunday, October 30, 2011

I had the tape measure still sitting out from doing my measurements the other day, with all of my measurements written down. All of a sudden, I picked up the tape measure and measured out my current waist measurement and held it in a loop. Then I held up the tape measurement for 20+ inches smaller – what I was when I got out of the Army nearly 20 years ago! I couldn’t believe the difference!! To see it from that perspective was certainly eye-opening! And kinda sad!

Took my daughter to a couple of local haunted happenings last night - and to Dairy Queen for dinner. Went a tad overboard on calories!! But, only had a few bites of her mini-blizzard, instead of getting one of my own. I should have chosen healthier options for dinner, but oh well. I also said "No" to my own candy bag at one of the Halloween haunted houses. So, all in all, not a total loss. And I'm back on track this morning - packed my own healthy lunch for work! emoticon


I'm not seeing much activity on a few of my favorite teams, which is a little discouraging, now that I'm back on my "kick". Maybe they're not as active (posting) on the weekends? Maybe they have the winter blues setting in like me? My knee was really bothering me last week, but it's good now - had no problem going up and down stairs/ladders on the Coast Guard Haunted Ship last night. So I'm ready to go and get a punch card for the Parks and Rec so I can go to Zumba and try out a Boot Camp class!! I even talked to a girl about a local Roller Derby team that is forming.... If my knee can handle it, it sounds like fun!!

    I've gone to a couple of Zumba classes... one was particularly GREAT, and the other, not so much! Unfortunately the great one is in a city 450 miles away!!! I have several Zumba dvd's and the Wii game. (In person is much more fun though!) I don't know about the roller derby though.... sounds dangerous! I really need to find an activity to get me moving this winter... sitting in a chair doing crafts will NOT burn any calories!
