About a month or so ago I discovered jersey swing dresses at Old Navy. After buying the first one at the store for $26.94, I found them on their website for $15 and bought three more! I love how they fit in the bodice and then skim over the lower body "issues." I admit, I love how they swish when I walk. I also bought a couple lightweight sweaters to wear over them so I could wear them to work. I didn't really want to cut off my head in the pics, but I wanted to show my shoes and that was my only way to do it.
Remember I said I have been taking my lunch to work and have been really good about not eating out unless invited by someone else. Well, I got invited out again yesterday :) Both the Shrimp PoBoy and fish stew were very good and I didn't feel badly about eating them.
Wednesday - Strength training mostly with dumbells...at least it was a break from "body weight" exercises.
Quick avert you eyes...this is a pretty unpleasant picture of my crunching. I seriously need to work on my workout face. So many unusable pictures (all of the boxing pics). I am not super excited that this is my trainer's view while I am working out, but again awesome "before" picture, right? My trainer also nicely reminded me that crunches will get easier when there is less belly. In the meantime, my abs of steel are well camouflaged.
After tonight's workout I met a new friend for a walk around the neighborhood. She and her husband were in our foster parent training class. Her son was in our foster daughter's pre-school class. She got her her first placement shortly before ours went home. We've kept in touch over Facebook and saw each other at pre-school events. Tonight was the first time we've gotten together. It was fun to walk and talk with someone who has been riding the foster care roller coaster too. And...almost three miles!
Good news I got my Friday workout done already so it is a Double Light rest weekend for me - woohoo!! However, don't let me come back here Monday and tell you how I didn't do any walking.
What do you have planned for this weekend? Want to try "punches and crunches"??
