I’m Trying to Stay Very Still

Every single muscle in my body is sore. I don’t say that lightly. Definitely not an exaggeration. I’d taken a break from my favorite weights class at the gym and have recently started going again. Pretty soon I’ll get to that constant low level soreness, instead of this OH MY GOSH IT’S TIME TO MOVE A BODY PART, OH NOOoooOOO! soreness.

I don’t often mention my affinity for weights because I don’t have any idea how to explain it. I have no desire for huge muscles. But there’s just something about knowing that you’re pushing yourself and getting stronger and will be able to load up that barbell even more the next time… it doesn’t sound like a thrill, does it? Oh, but it is! (well, except for that tender spot right at the top of my back where the barbell sits and digs in and yow!

My favorite instructor is a very muscle-y blond woman who likes to sing along with the songs. How she has enough oxygen to do that is beyond me because I am a shaky mess who couldn’t talk if I tried, much less sing. Not that I’d sing anyway. She’s moving (to the land of biscochitos, actually) and I miss her already. All the other teachers are a little too easy and not nearly as much fun.

Ethan-7yr just came out of his room, where he had gone 30 minutes ago after sighing and declaring “I’m needing a little ‘ME TIME’!” (No, he did NOT get that phrase from me, although I do love it when he says it.) He just lost a front tooth this week, and now Caden-3yr and Seth-2yr are constantly trying to wiggle their own teeth out so that they can be just like him. Pretty soon all three of them will be claiming a need for a little ‘Me Time.’

And now it’s time to go make dinner, and OH MY GOSH IT’S TIME TO MOVE A BODY PART, OH NOOoooOOO!

Nope, don’t get the weights thing. I also don’t get it when my best friend runs 8 miles FOR FUN. But, whatever. To each their own, right? LOL!

My 5 year old has his first loose tooth. We are so excited about it around here.

I am so literally feeling your pain. I took a class with way too many ab exercises in it yesterday. Ouch, it even hurts to laugh

:)

The only way most women would ever get huge muscles is to take steriods—really! (Steroids and a VERY low body fat percentage might make a woman look like an Amazon) But there is something to be said for a beautifully defined muscle. ;)
