well I wrote a really long blog about what happened yesterday and then I went to post it and it said that I included profanity somewhere in my post. I went back to change it and the entire thing that I spent like 45 minutes writing got errased. I was so mad I had to just shut my computer down and get off. So Im gonna try this again... lol.
Yesterday went pretty good as far as eating goes and I had a really good day activity wise too. I woke up with my husband at 6:30am because I had to make him lunch to take to work... then I desided to just stay up and make him breakfast and maybe get a little housework done before the kids woke up.
I split my breakfast into two meals because when I eat around 7am I get super hungry a few hours before lunch. I think it worked out pretty well.
I went through my day as usual and then around 4pm when my husband got home me and my sister (javagrl) left to go skating. We wanted to go on wednesday because we figured that it would be not too busy. We got there at around 5pm and relized that they dident even open untill 6:30pm. ::sigh::
So we left and went to subway. We split a bag of sunchips and a foot long orchard chicken salad sub.... I know I have been doing the vegetarian thing but what can I say.. Im weak. I love meat too much to be completely vegetarian. Anyway, it really ended up sucking... It was the first time I have tried a new sub at subway in like 10 years (I normaly get the oven roasted chicken breast) and it sucked.... oh well.
So we leave there and we still have like an hour untill the skating rink opens so we go to lane bryant and look around because my sister really needs some new clothes. When she moved in with me a year ago she weighed around 260 pounds and now she is down to 218! She is still wearing all the shirts she wore at 260 though and She is wearing my hand me down jeans. I told her she dident have to go to layne bryant anymore, that she could prob find something at a regular store but I think mentaly she still thinks she is 250 pounds.
Anyway we were shopping around and It turns out that I am way to small to fit anything there... shopping isent much fun when nothing fits.... but really even the smallest sizes were too big for her, even though she refused to see that. I kept making comments to her about the clothes and how they would looked much bigger than the size on the tag and we are always joking around about being fat in general so we make comments. On my way out of the store I thought that maybe I should not make so many comments about being fat because maybe someone that dident know I use to be real big would be offended and think Im trying to be a jerk. I thought about the comments I was making about the clothes and how a fat girl would look horrible in them and figured that it would sound really bad comming from a thin person... and Im getting to the point where I would be considered more a thin person rather than a fat person.... or at least an average size person. Somthing for me to watch I geuss.
anyway then we went to the rink.... I was so scared of falling down that I did really really bad.... I think alot of it had to do with that it was really really busy there.... turns out that the last wednesday of every month is 1 dollar admission night. It was freakin packed in there... there were wild little kids skating the wrong way on the track, skating accross the track, laying in the middle of the track. I was so nervous that I was going to slam in to a 8 year old and take him out. lol. after about an hour though I desided that I wasnet giving myself a chance and I needed to be less afraid and just do it... I got alot better after that. I did fall twice, once on my hand and my elbow (got a pretty nice buise from that) and another time I fell forward and in an attempt to not hit my knees or my face I did sort of a belly flop on the ground and then slid about 5 or 10 feet. Im sure it was quite amussing to watch lol. Me slip and slidding down the roller rink.
We left there after an hour and a half because the rental skates they gave my sister were really bad and were hurting her feet.
So it was only around 8:00 and we dident want to go home yet so we went to the park to walk around... park closes at 8 though so we drove up to the middle of our town because they have a really nice main street to walk down... lots of lighting and cute shops and really old victorian homes. We walked for about 10 minutes and came to this one building... I asked my sister if she had ever been in it before and she said no... its a little indoor mall with shops all on the inside. Everything in there was closed but as we got to the back of the building we noticed a stairway leading down and a big banner over the door that said "tanning" .... my sister asked what was down there and I told her that I thought it was a gym.... she was like OOoo lets go see how much they charge because I want to join a gym..
So we go down and there is this 60 year old man at the counter who looks like he has never worked out a day in his life.... and he ends up being one of those old guys that likes to bullsh*t with younger women and joke around. So he is going through pricing with her and aking her her age and all this other stuff. I asked if we could look around and we do and its a pretty crappy little gym... a few treadmills and ellipticals, some weight equipment and a very small little aerobics room.
The guy from the front desk spots us and says, hey I have something to show you and then motions to the little aerobics room where two other women are walking in. So here we are in this tiny little room with 4 exercise balls... if there was more than the 5 of us then it would have been really uncomfortable.... he tells the the two other girls have been comming here for 5 weeks and he gives them stuff to do every day... one of the girls said she had gone down 3 sizes or something. Then he tells us to grab a ball. Im thinking "Ooo k we are going to workout now?" but I pick up a ball because WTH I needed a workout anyway, I would play along.
The old guy starts leading us through all these exercises, like ball push ups and sit ups and planks ect.... and we did that for about 20 minutes and I have to say I never realized that you could get such a great workout from an exercise ball.... I was litterily pouring sweat by the time we stopped. It was kinda strange, the whole situation but kinda fun too.
Then by that time it was like 9pm and we needed to get home.
Was a very interesting day... and I think my sisters interested in going to the gym now so I geuss that guys little demonstration worked in some way. lol. I myself cant afford a gym but if I could I would go to the YMCA... I love to swim.
