Monday Workout

The Bingham Diaries

Well, I seem to have a problem. Let's call it the

MyKidsAreInBedAndOhMyLifeLetMeStuffMyFaceWithCrap Disease.

And it totally should count as a disease because I cannot stop myself. All day long, I do most excellent, I eat what I should, when I should, and then? My children go to bed and chips and salsa sound really good.

So, I'm thinking I need to be in bed by 9 because then I won't eat. To help me with that, I've gotten some nice little pills of the sleep aid variety and will be using those to help me establish a healthy bedtime routine.

As far as goals this week, I can feel my body getting stronger. I'm going up and down the stairs better. I tried to workout this week, but it's still pretty painful. I'm six weeks out from my hysterectomy now, and while most of my external stitches have dissolved, the internal ones will be there for another 6-8 months. And things like jumping jacks make those internal stitches MAD.

AND, my ward has a group that meets 3 times a week for aerobics, so I'm going to start showing up there. The instructor told me that she can show me how to modify all the steps, so I'M GOING. I might come home and cry later, but I figure it'll be worth it in the end.

Not a lot of loss this week. 3/4 inch off my bicep and a half inch off my calf. Everything else is exactly the same. At least we're moving in the right direction, right?
