Lately I've Been Wondering.......

Lol.  So, so tired! :)

I just started walking again last week, and started working out properly this week.  Last night I was sobbing and wobbling through my training last night while James barked things like "Come on you're not even trying!" and "Breathe!!!", (to which I wanted to yell "I AM TRYING!", and "I AM BREATHING!!!!!" but lacked the  I was reflecting on the fitness challenge I did and wrote about on here back in July-Sep 2011, and how impossible I thought all the tasks James was giving me then were, and how by the end of it I could do them all!  And lost all my 'Ana' weight! :)

It's hard to focus this time though, because James has developed - through obviously coaching and training people way too much lately - a crazy 'coach' persona, and it makes me want to giggle SO BAD!! He's like some crazy sergeant off a bad army barracks comedy movie, and it sets me off every time he tells me what to do.  Maybe because he's so authoritarian about it and I'm like "James I'm your wife, not some random army cadet you have to bark orders at!" but it was really disrupting my workout, because when you're a body of jelly instead of muscles, and you're desperately trying with all of your might to perform some grossly out-of-your-ability-level-right-now squat or lunge or lift with weights, and somebody makes you giggle, you almost collapse, and nearly die by hitting yourself over the head with your own weights.  And I was tired and James did not think it was funny, so I was a jelly laughing crying determined little mess.  I'm sure I'd laugh about it now if my stomach wouldn't explode with the pain!  I'm meant to be out the door with the girls to the park in 10 minutes, but oh my it's so hard to move, and my fingers are some of the only muscles in my body which can comfortably move right now lol.  Okay, okay - I'll go!  I'd better start losing weight and growing muscles soon, and get FIT - which is the whole point, isn't it?  So I can have some ENERGY to make this lovely family dinner every single night, and fit into some clothes that don't have belly bands in them! :)  Ah, good times!!  Getting up now, eeeeek!! :) xox

PS:  It's really, really hard, but LOVING having 3 babies!!! :)

Hahahaha, I love the picture!! How true, lol. If ever Robbie would be out for dinner, I was stoked to be able to just serve myself some 2 minute noodles rather than something real :P

Go Abby! How very impressive :) Man, you're going to look amazing. I need to get a move on because you'll have a 5 month old and look stunning and I'll have an 18 month old and still be wearing my maternity jeans *sigh*

Glad your fingers are at least feeling good :) xo
