Ahh, ya gotta love my titles! So creative don't ya think? JK Ok, so the Biggest Looser contest starts today!! Yeah! I have been getting back into the swing of things these past 5 days. I have been going for a walk every morning. Plus I have juiced 4 out of the past 5 days. And eaten a salad for lunch each day as well. So I am doing well. So here is my starting stats:
waist: 37 in.
hips: 42 1/2
thighs: L-24 1/2 and R-24 1/4
Another goal I have is to lower my blood pressure. For some reason ( I am sure the 48 pound weight gain had something to do with it) my blood pressure kept creeping up during this pregnancy and it hasn't gone down. My top number has come down, but not the bottom. My last reading was 120/90. I start my resistance exercises on monday. Check out the Jorge Cruise books from you library. I like the different type of exercises and the best part is that it's only 8 minutes a day to do. Now I am adding a few of his different books' routines in all together, so it will take me longer than the 8 minutes. But I am hoping that it will make a big difference in my ummm, saggy body!
Ok, now about the killer Parmesan cheese. I was in the bathroom, when I hear this *sound*. Not quite sure how to describe it, but it made my Mommy warning sirens go off. I could tell it was coming from Saoirse, so I called her to me. She came in covered with this white stuff all over her face, shoulders and chest. Not to mention she had gobs of it in her mouth. Hence the sounds. She was gagging and very scared. I didn't know what it was at first. I had a cup in the bathroom that I wanted to use to give her some water. But I first had to make sure it wasn't something poisonous that she had all over her. I scooped out her mouth first, then smelled some of the powder. I knew it was something familiar, it took a second for it to register that it was Parmesan cheese!! So there you have it, a warning, beware of Parmesan cheese! I went to the kitchen to find the fridge foor open and the cheese bottle on the floor. We happened to buy the extra large bottle this time around. The opening is very large and she must have tipped it back to eat some and it came POURING out. Poor thing. But she is fine now. Back to her ol' self.
Ok, little man work up so I need to get going. He is doing great by the way. He's up to about 7 pounds now! Yeah!
