So its day 3 and its my first day back at the gym. I love my gym, whenever i go it seems as if Im the only one there. Its all shiny and new and every treadmill/bike/crosstrainer has their own tv attached to it. It hardly seems like exercise when you plug in your headphones and watch one of those completely mindnumbing and ridiculous shows on MTV, (normally if its on at home it compels me to get up and do well anything else really) , but at the gym , I dont know, that half hour show just seems to hold my attention long enough to build up a decent sweat and heart rate well enough that I am beginning to enjoy treadmill time :0) Then its off to the circuit floor, I am loving all the arm exercises like lat pulldowns, shoulder raises and chest press and find myself imagining that if I work hard enough, my tuck shop lady arms (sorry tuck shop ladies - there is just no better way to describe it)will one day be as smokin as say Alyssa Milano's arms. This is really helpful when my arms are feel like they are on fire and I still have that last set to do!
So this morning I spent a little longer at the gym and worked a little harder because this afternoon it was Miss L's birthday party. Miss L is the eldest daughter of my lovely friend and trusted babysitter Emma from A Little Crafty and let me tell you, Emma is not only a little crafty but a fantastic cook as well! Em makes a simply to die for caramel slice and made it for the party this afternoon, so I couldnt be rude could i?
Im thinking maybe I started in the wrong week, what with mothers day yesterday and the party today, plus miss b has another 2 birthday parties this week....oh well never mind, Ill just have to work harder at the gym tomorrow.
Well thats it from me tonight, it has been a busy day and i am oh so slightly sleepy...
Much love to you all
PS I promise I will give you the 'how i got here and where i hope to get' blog that I promised to give you yesterday, tomorrow.
