Monday Workout

The Bingham Diaries

So. Last week.

Went to aerobics on Monday. Could do *most* of the exercises, just less range of motion than some of the other gals. There was a little bit of pilates thrown in towards the end, and, umm, YEAH. My core? LAUGHABLE. Seriously. Oh well, since I'm not going to be 100% healed from my hysterectomy for another 6-8 months, I'll worry about it then.

Unfortunately, I didn't make the Wednesday or the Friday class because I'm not used to going yet. So brilliant me scheduled other things DURING the class time. le' sigh. Not to worry, I've written it down on both my calendars (in pen!) so that won't be happenning again.

Today's class is cancelled because it snowed, so I plan on doing one of the video's I have, at 9:00 am, just to get myself into a habit.

Speaking of habits, I've been MUCH better about eating after my kids go to bed. I've also been going to bed earlier, which has helped immensely, as has simplifying things in general. Less stress = me eating better. WHO EVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?

Oh, AND, I was asked TWICE, by two different people, if I'd lost some weight. I don't know, but I sure hope so. I really need to invest in a good sturdy scale that cannot be thrown down the stairs.

In other news, I've lost an whole inch and a half off my waist this week, and my hips are down half an inch..... I'll take it!

So, how'd you do this week? (you can even tell me. comments are BACK ON.)


  1. Woo Hoo! Congrats. I am in the thinking I might want to loose weight, but don't know if I have the energy to do it stage....

  2. I'm having such fun with right now. Very eye opening. Down 5.6 pounds in February - hoping to double that this month. Woot!

    Off to work out - I'm feeling INSPIRED.

  3. I haven't been on my elliptical in 3 days! Today's the day to get back on.

  4. Congrats on the inches lost! I have put on four pounds in the last two weeks. But my body seems to rotate its weight a bunch. Such is life being a woman. ;)

  5. That's awesome. The hurling your scale down the stairs part is my favorite. BUT good for you for sleeping more and eating better and SIMPLIFYING and even more PROPS for actually GOING to an aerobics class. I'm always full of the best intentions that always fall through.

  6. YEA!!! Comments are back!!! We get to tell you how awesome you are!!!

    Seriously, great job!! The night snacking gets me, too. News flash to Laurie - go to bed earlier and there's less opportunities for night snacking! Duh.

    Okay, you've given me things to work on! :)

  7. I am commenting on your "Say My Name" post...

    I love you.

    That is all.

  8. Yay! I am glad people are noticing and asking you if you have lost weight.

    I am jealous of your Virginia snow!

  9. You go, girl! Ahem, I mean..., Caroline.

  10. WOMAN! I AM FINALLY happy! You put the comments back on! haha! And i would just like to say CONGRATULATOINS! That is so wonderful.... ☺♥♪

  11. NICE! Wow! That is quite an accomplishment. And, based on the FACT that I still can't fit into any of my "normal" clothes, I need to get my butt in gear! Thanks for the motivation!

  12. Wow! I'm really impressed, MomBabe!

    I've done nada, zilch, zip. Which really sucks because I'm running a marathon in April!

    But you're quite the inspiration, missy. Thanks!
