Wow I did a lot today, and I felt great while doing it! I had an excellent workout this morning with my trainer E. after were were done doing our circuit, we headed to the floor to do abs and stretching. I asked if I could do more crunches/curl ups, so after doing a couple hundred of those I hit the elliptical for a half hour. I sweated up a storm and my feet didn't go numb like they typically do after long periods of time. Before I hit the cardio machine E and I had a conversation about our motivations in getting fit. I told him that I didn't want to work out thinking that I could be skinny and have a perfect body, but rather because I really do desire to be healthy. I really do just want to have a healthy body, and a healthy baby. I know that I will NEVER look like a catalog model and I'm ok with that. My body was, frankly made for having kids. I'm German--come on! Us good German girls are NOT waifs. A healthy weight for me is around 180, and I'm 273 as of this morning. I finally started dropping weight again so I'm excited.
Thanksgiving is looking more exciting as a scored an invite from my aunt for A and myself. We are in charge of the turkey, stuffing and an apple pie. I can't wait! I'm going to make the crust from scratch, for the second time. I am going to use butter this time instead of crisco. I only used crisco because I wanted to use it up last time. I generally have a rule against that crap; at least butter comes from a natural source.
This evening my friend M and I went shopping. Lots of shopping! I had to return some towels because I got them for half the price at a different store. I think we went to EVERY store in Star City. I got this awesome bubbler cat water dish, and a catnip ball for the kitties. Anyways...lots of fun, and since I saved so much on other stuff, in the end I used mostly that money and birthday money.
Overall...excellent day :)
What did you do today? What are you doing to prepare for Thanksgiving? Do you Black Friday shop? I totally avoid the crowds if possible--it totally isn't worth it.
