Monday....

What can you say? It is Monday. I am doing laundry, and trying to get lots of other little "chores" done. BUT.... I did workout again today. I am sitting here in my workout clothes, as a reminder to not go have that second cup of double creamered coffee... cause good grief if the sight of myself in this doesn't motivate me, nothing will!!!!!!!!!! LOL. The first time I worked out in ages, a few weeks ago, I was quite shocked. I did a video of all lower body weighted exercises. The woman even states that you are going for "muscle failure". (I was thinking, "lady, my muscles failed just haulin my booty out of bed, but okay, I'm with ya") So, after my workout, and yes, I managed to hang, I decided to go run on the treadmill. Now, I have always prided myself on being able to go run a mile, yes a sloooooooooooooow mile, but a mile no less. No matter how long its been since regular exercise, I can always do that mile. Well, NOT anymore, and espcially not after the "muscle failing lower body workout". I jacked that speed up, hopped on and folks, this is embarrassing, but a mere minutes later, I was done. Yes, I did say 3½ minutes. My little legs were shaking, literally. I am now, officially, old and out of shape. But I was challenged, and the next time out I did a half mile. Today, it is too cold to take Em out there, so I am signing off to go do some dancing with him instead. He is too little yet to realize just how bad a dancer his mother is... I will close with some little pics of my Halloween pirates. They were cute, giddy over people giving them candy, and even Em was saying "Twick or Tweet".
