Thirty minutes after running I went to Zumba. I really love Zumba. It's fun and energizing. I wish I could go more than once a week. They offer it 3 times a week, but the second time is Thursday at 3 (I work) and then the third one is Saturday at 9am. I'd be able to do Saturday, but Damian has had make-up baseball games at 10 on Saturdays. (Good news, my knee didn't twinge at all during my run or Zumba!)
I discovered another NSV (non-scale victory), which is probably TMI, but oh well. Chris and I haven't had much "alone time" since Maddox was born. For a long time Maddox was sleeping in our bed with us, plus, Chris and I are on completely different schedules. His days off are Tues-Thurs and mine are Sat and Sun, so he goes to bed late on his days off and I go to bed late on mine . . . not to mention having a 13 yr old in the house as well . . . we just haven't had much "special alone time." Well, a few days ago it all worked out for us to have some "quality time," really the first since I started running. (That is so sad because I started running the end of Feb.) So. . . my NSV is that I wasn't tired, I wasn't sweating, I didn't even feel like I had exerted any effort at all. I could have gone much longer and not had any problems. What a great feeling. It definitely makes me want it more. Now I just need to get Chris into better shape, we could go at it like rabbits. ;-) LOL!!
Anyway . . . hahaha . . . sorry, now I'm embarrassed.
I went to work today and just had a super hard time getting there. So I asked my supervisor if she cared if I took tomorrow off as well as Thursday and Friday, so now I have 6 full days off! I am super excited. Tomorrow evening we are having some friends over for a bbq and fire and I am planning on drinking quite a bit. I haven't had much to drink since I had Maddox and since he's FINALLY sleeping through the night, that means I can drink and not worry about having to feed him in the middle of the night. Drinking a lot means that I'm going to have a terrible weigh in on Friday, but I am okay with that.
I am going to run in the morning tomorrow and then I am going with a friend to do a different Zumba class. She joined a gym and got 3 free passes for a friend, so she's going to give them to me so I can go to Zumba with her there. Then another run on Thursday and maybe Zumba at 3 at my normal place because I'm not working. So I'm hoping to work off the extra calories I will consume tomorrow evening.
