21 pounds!

After my sick-filled weekend, I didn't think it would be a good weigh-in Monday.  But I was wrong!  As of today, I have lost 21 pounds!

Woo Hoo!!!  Twenty one pounds!!

What does 21 pounds look like you ask?  I'll tell you...

21 pounds is like:
  1. My oldest daughter's dance bag.  She just walked in the door from working a camp.
  2. A baby boy in the 50th percentile at the age of 9 months
  3. A baby girl in the 50th percentile at the age of 13 months
  4. A tire
  5. A very large cat
  6. 2 large sacks of potatoes
  7. My beagle, Daisy
  8. 80 sticks of butter
  9. A 24 pack of sodas
  10. A large turkey
I'm excited; can you tell?

Yesterday, I took my little one swimming at my friend Tiffany's house.  We were there for a couple of hours, and I spent my time treading water and talking to my friend while our girls dived after diving sticks.  An hour of treading water isn't so bad when your mind is occupied.  We had a great time, and I considered it a great exercise since I'm still not a hundred percent and easily winded.

I still wanted to do some exercise, so I called one of my neighbors to see if she wanted to go walking; but it got to be too late.  So I pulled out the Wii and did the Active workout.  This workout included boxing (yea!), arm exercises, lunges, and-the latest addition-jumping lunges-AHHHHHH!  As if lunges aren't bad enough, they want me to jump in the middle of them!  Then it went back to the normal stuff.  And then, they added jumping squats!  Jumping...from a squat!  It was definitely more intense and got my heart rate pumping.  On a good note, I think I got the running on the Wii down.  I readjusted the nunchuk on the leg strap and that seemed to do the trick.  After that, I put on the Wii Fit and played around on there a little. 

There will probably be no workout this evening.  My oldest is home for the night, so I think we're just going to hang out and catch up.  No snacking though; at least not for me. I'm working on my next tweny pounds!  =)
