Day 173 - 160.8

I think I sweat out two pounds last night with my fever. I woke up around 4 a.m. shivering, put on a sweater and took 3 advil , and woke up at 6:30 soaking wet with sweat. Perhaps that's why I weighed two pounds less this morning than yesterday.

I did make it to the gym yesterday afternoon, and it felt great. Did 5K in 36:35, alternated between running and walking. I was just so glad to finally get back in there and sweat (the good kind, not the fever kind) and feel my body working.

Sophie ended up having a good 1st day of kindergarten, of course. She said, "Mommy, I made two boyfriends!" I am in SO much trouble-ha. This morning she was going to ride the bus, but we just missed it. The schedule said 7:34 but the bus actually arrived at 7:30, so it wasn't my fault, really! ;) I called the driver today and notified her she'd have another rider on Wednesday. Sophie was so cute this morning as I drove her to school-- until she missed it, she didn't really know how much she wanted to ride the bus. So tomorrow, I have a feeling it will be no problem getting her ready for school.

Tonight the husband and I are back to our dance classes at our church. They were such a hit, the church and the dance instructors decided to do another 5 weeks. We really liked the Rumba last time, and we are learning two more dances during this 5 week series. I joked with my husband that if we start now, by the time we're old and retired we'll finally be good at it and will have something we can do together.

Thanks for the comment on my blog!! Good luck to you too!! You have already done awsome... I hope to be where you are in 6 months!!

My girls are 2 and 4.... I think I will be crying my eyes out the day they have to go to school. I am seriously thinking of home schooling, just so I can keep them at home with me! How selfish is that??

Hope you start feeling better soon. It is so hard to eat right and excorsize when your sick...blah!

You made me laugh about Sophie's comment about the BFs. I'm so happy she is enjoying school.

I'm glad you are feeling better and I'm so happy you and your husband are doing the dance lessons. It's a nice time away from the kids and it's good exercise on top of it. Everything sounds so good for you right now. I'm so happy about that.
