So Far This Week....

I broke down and bought more minutes for the tanning salon on Monday. I let like 400 minutes go to waste at the end of last year because I didn't use them. Mike told me that I am not allowed to buy anymore minutes because of that. Oh well....haha. Now that I am super pale, I figured that I would buy some minutes just to get a tan started. Once it warms up outside, I will start tanning in the backyard. I am so looking forward to summer (especially because I am off and able to enjoy it). :)
 
Today has been the 14th day since we got our membership at the YMCA. I am happy to report that I have gone to the gym 12 of those 14 days. Mike has gone 11 out of 14 days. I do 60 minutes of cardio every time that we go. I am down 5 pounds since last week on Tuesday. I am feeling good and still really enjoying getting out of the house every day with my hubby. Even if we aren't spending time together at the gym...unless we are next to each other on the treadmill...which even then we are listening to our iPods, I love being able to glance his way and catch him wink at me or flash me a smile. :) I know...corny. ;)

On Monday I went to the gym by myself for the first. This is a huge step for me because I NEVER go anywhere by myself. I always want company even if I am shopping. Anyways, thank God for my upbeat music because all 7 TV's were playing the news about the Boston bombings. It was SO depressing.

Yesterday I wore workout clothes for my sister (see on the right)....straight down to my socks with pink ribbons on them. :) My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer at 30 years old. At 33 years old, she is cancer free and very much pregnant! Yay for her! :)

Speaking of my sister.....

I had coconut syrup from Hawaii on my waffles this morning. My sister and brother-in-law brought it back for me from Hawaii in February. It is very good, but also 170 calories for a quarter of a cup. Totally worth the calories though. It is my "every once in a while" treat. I usually eat my waffles plain to save on calories. :)

Anyways....have a wonderful rest of your week and a splendid weekend!

Love this post! The syrup sounds yummy! Good for you for hitting the gym. I never liked going alone. People told me I would learn to love it, but I never gave it a chance! Keep it up!

So glad to hear your sister is cancer-free, that is huge! (I lost one of my older sisters to cancer in 2006) It feels so great to do things for yourself that also make you feel better about yourself, enjoy it girl!! Have a great weekend, especially with all this crazyness going on in the world right now.

I am so sorry to hear about your sister. That must be really tough. My sister is my best friend. I can't imagine not having her anymore. :(

You try to have a good weekend as well! :)

Thanks! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I actually feel really comfortable at that gym...especially when not a lot of people are there. Luckily I can go pretty early if I am not going with my husband because I get out of work at 2. :)

Coconut syrup! That's blowing my mind.
