I'm really NOT feeling it, but I know it's just a mental thing, but today we're going back to the YMCA. It's such an odd thing...when I'm in the habit of going daily, then it's no struggle to go, and in fact, is my preferred routine. But once that routine has been broken, I have to force myself to go again. And really, all I do is walk the track with my 19 lb 3 oz baby, so it's not like I'm working hard or exerting myself in any way. What I'm saying is, I have no reason to dread the YMCA, besides the fact that I just happen to be l-a-z-y.
did you notice how I snuck in the results of Isabelle's weigh-in yesterday? Redbox codes go to Kara for being the closest without going over, Tracy for being the closest (only one ounce over!) and Gail for being my newest follower! :) I will email you ladies your code today!
In addition to that, I was tagged yesterday by the fabulous Megan to do a list of all my favorite things. I know some people think lists like this are kind of silly, but I enjoy them because I think it allows me to "know" everyone a little bit better. Yes, I love the well thought out, well-written posts, but the little lists often touch on things you'd never write about.
If you'd like to copy and post this list, I'll read about your favorites too!
