What I've been doing...

Quick little play by play of the last week...

Went to the gym every. morning. I have been doing 1 1/2 hours of cardio every morning. And before you say it, I KNOW that lifting weights burns more fat than cardio. BUT at this point, I am happy with the results I am getting from Cardio alone, because I also know that muscle WEIGHS more than fat and I am not willing to gain any poundage just yet. Thanks for the concern, though. My motivation for going? I am reading a book, and I read the first two by the same author in the few weeks prior to this one. It is 'Such a Pretty Fat' by Jen Lancaster. I am so into this book that I tell myself that I can only read it on the elliptical. So, every morning I hop up and practically sprint to the gym. Except that I am in the car. Not sprinting. You get my drift. If you love snarky and just plain HILARIOUS, you too will pick up her books. Read them in order. Too funny!
Also, CRazyMama hosted a Giveaway a week or so ago, and I won! I love winning! I got the lotion a few days ago, and can I tell you I just LOVE it??!! So, Piper from Moonvine Organics...if you are reading this, THANK You! I do adore this lotion, and I love it for my children as well. Great on the eczema. Thanks again, Julie, for hosting this!
Funny thing about the giveaway. I have won a couple of giveaways lately from soe favorite bloggy friends. Each one emailed me and said, "I swear I didn't cheat..you won fair and square" or something along those lines. So either, I am super rad and they love me to bits, or I think I am super rad and all-deserving of winning contests, and they caught onto that! Either way, Whoo hoo...I love winning. The other contest I forgot to blog about. Thank YOU Cecily for the amazon gift card.
And one more thing on the home front. My MIL bought ME (ok, the kids, but I play it most) a WII. Dude, I love it! Just L-O-V-E it! Golf and bowling are my faves. Haven't bought any games besides the sports one it came with, but I am very content with those! I can beat anyone in this house at bowling, and I am getting better at golf, but Zac is a wee bit better. Don't tell him I said that.
SO, that is what has been happenin' over in these parts. I will really really try to post more and Comment more. This year end of school is crazy for me!

Sounds like reading while working out is the key to success! I keep hearing about people reading while on the elliptical or treadmill...I don't think I'm that coordinated! Either that, or I just jiggle too much to hold a book still lol!

My husband and I LOVE out Wii! I really want to look in to getting Wii Fit as soon as I can...I think it'd be a great tool to help with weight loss and toning!

If you loves Such A Pretty Fat, I think you'd like Stephanie Klein's books. I have only read excerpts from MOOSE: A MEMOIR OF FAT CAMP but I loved STRAIGHT UP AND DIRTY.

I LOVE our wii, too! You know what's even funnier, we went to get an extra remote and (to my surprise) didn't know it was called a "wii-mote" LMAO. I do love the game that came w/ it,but I also have to recommend wii play, and playground games :) GOOD FUN!
