Day 259 - 152.0

I made it to the weights class last night, and it was great. The hour went by really quickly--I didn't look at the clock once, that's how much I enjoyed it. The best part was working out in a group. I've been solitary for months now, running by myself. So having 4 other women in the class was a nice change of pace. The instructor is one of my favorites, and her music was energetic and fun, not annoying.

Another bonus was how pleased I was with what I saw in the mirrors. I have developed some nice muscles just by running. I've commented on it before, but it was really obvious last night how my shoulders and triceps have developed. And my lower body is starting to shape up nicely, too.

Planning on a run today, but not sure how many miles I'll put in. Depends on how the day shapes up at work and when I can get out of here. It will be outside, though, because it's supposed to be back up to 60* this afternoon. Lovely running weather.

The big bummer today is AquaDots. You've probably heard about them on the news by now, how they have been recalled because when they're ingested they act like the date rape drug. My daughter LOVES AquaDots. I just bought her 3 refill sets this past weekend. She makes something almost every day. And now I have to tell her she can't play with them anymore. She is going to freak out. I'm tempted not to get rid of them, but with a 2 year old in the house (even though he doesn't put stuff in his mouth that's not food, there's always a first time) it's just not worth the risk. DAMN THOSE CHINESE TOY MAKERS!!!!!!

Y'all have a lovely day. =)

I so enjoy reading your metamorphose into the healthy athletic woman.

My daughter wants those aqua dots, but I was never really impressed by them, so glad I haven't bought them.

Aquadots - never heard of them, but that is weird. I'm sure some college kid will go and buy every box off the shelf now...

enjoy your run later today.

OMG I didn't know abotu the Aquadots. I remember Keira said she wanted them for Christmas but I was like "Ummmmm aren't you a little too young for those?" Plus Cam would probably try and eat them LOL Guess it's a good thing I didn't get em.

Girl you are nuts!! I can't believe you like mirrors. OMG forget that! LOL

Nice work. Muscles are awesome! ANd they burn more calories just sitting there.

Ok - Aquadots? Now do they effect adults the same way? Maybe you can sell them on the street and make a little sweet moola...

Great job on the workout! I love lifting weights.. it makes me feel like I can really work on my trouble spots. (who am I kidding, my whole body is a problem spot!LOL)

I almost got those for my Amber.. but then thought they looked way too much like candy. What is up with CHINA??? Jerks.. I think they are trying to kill everyone.. slowly.

Hope you have a great run outside tonight! Its almost Friday!! Yippeeeee

In my opinion - the sign of a REALLY good class is the clock watching. If you didn't look once - great class.

There used to be a product that I think is similar to aquadots (when my middle child was quite small) except they weren't set by water - they were set by heat - the parent put a piece of parchment paper over them and then used iron to set. There was an iron proof form on which the kid "built" their design and then the form held the shape until the iron set it. I don't know WHAT it was called. Hobby Lobby might know. Except now days - it might be made in China too. I looked a bowls earlier this week and put them back - made in China - no way I was buying anything that food touches from there.
