So, I'm taking an exercise bootcamp two days a week, and Tuesday marked the first day of the next 12 week session. After last Thursday's fit testing (that's a whole different story), I didn't think it could get any harder... little did I know, I was wrong! Tuesday we started training non-stop between each exercise and also started doing "fun" things like jump squats and mountain climbers. If plyometrics don't whip my booty into shape, I don't know what will! As sick as it may sound, I actually look forward to each session where I get my booty handed to me repeatedly. The first series was hard and I was able to live through it, so I have a feeling that after completing this one, I will be much stronger and also will have accomplished something I thought impossible after having Aryanne almost a year ago. :)
I also realized today that I definitely need to go shopping for some new sports bras. Do any of you other mamas have one that you could recommend? Today was not pretty... I am in desperate need of something that will help me get through lots of jumping exercises.
In other news, my hubby and I have everything figured out for Aryanne's upcoming birthday! All we have left to do is order food this weekend and then we are finished until the day before the party. Woohoo, for planning ahead! We were able to find everything we need between Michaels Crafts and Party City. Michaels had a great selection of butterflies, bees, birds and lady bugs, and over at Party City, we found all the hanging lanterns that we wanted. I cannot wait to decorate! I am SO excited!! Clearly, the decorations are more for me than the baby. What can I say, I love a good party.
Me and the soon-to-be birthday girl!
I am also very excited because my beautiful mama will be here for Aryanne's birthday. She flies in next Friday evening and will be here the entire week before the party. Even though, I just saw her in June, I cannot wait to see her again. And, I know she cannot wait to see Aryanne!
My mama and Aryanne in June...
Check back soon because I will have recipes for the goodies I plan to bake very soon. Oh, and I'll also give you an update on how things are going at bootcamp with photos!
