Grandkids After Workout

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Today is Natalie's 6th birthday. I took a couple pictures of her yesterday. Here she is pretending to be the teacher and I was the student. She taught me a session she called, "what is a map?" Here she is drawing her "map" on the chalk board:

Here she is with her creation:

(If either one of these are sideways, I will fix it. Give me a minute!)

Today Natalie's dad is off work, so he has gone to eat lunch with her at school on her special day. Gwen is staying with me and I got her to smile for me:

Here you can read her shirt, "Fun to Be Me!":

(Well, I got the 2 pictures verticle now, but I had one wrong picture of Gwen. I'm still looking for the one you can read the shirt. Still learning.)

I am enjoying my Christmas camera!!

This morning I made it to the YMCA for a good short run and then my third personal training session. I wasn't sure I'd make it home in time to greet Gwen, but hubby promised he'd keep her until I got there, but I made it!! I told my trainer how sore I was last week and suggested maybe I shouldn't go so hard today. He told me it was good for me and to go for it! So I did. We worked on pecs, triceps, and biceps today. Hope I can move my arms and breath without too much pain tomorrow. We'll see.

This eve we'll be at Natalie's birthday supper. Should be fun!! I plan to enjoy myself, but stay within my calorie range. I've got a 10 day "in calorie range" streak going and don't want to break it!! I love those stars on my calendar.

Wishing you a healthy, happy day!!!

    Great use for that camera, for sure. Gwen has inherited Grandma's winning smile, and I have to admit to loving her ringlets! As for Natalie... she's growing up so fast... don't know how you can stand it!

Enjoy the party!

    Cute grands!!!
My gd loves to play school, too.
When she wants me to be the teacher she calls me 'Miss Grammy'.

How do you fix sideways pics, anyway?

My trainer says you should be 'good sore' but have no pain at all.

    Stars on a calendar work! I've used all kinds of stickers to keep streaks going! Your girls are precious; I really miss those years. Mine are almost grown, youngest will be 10 soon. The one that sent me back to the gym when I realized it was hard for me to lift him out or put him in the crib will be 18 this week! Good years! They go fast.

I don't agree with your trainer. Trust your judgement and listen to your body. I've seen so many at the gym come in for a few grueling sessions never to be seen again. Learn what you can and adapt it to your needs. You've proved yourself Marsha!

    Your grandbabies are beautiful. Its great you get to spend time with them like you do. So cool your trainer didn't let you go easy. It's his job. Its what you pay him for. And keep reminding yourself that "no pain - no gain!"

Have a great day celebrating Natalie's birthday. They sure do grow to fast.

    What a pair of sweeties!! Enjoy your dinner!
I sure hope you don't feel too badly after your session with the trainer. I hope your trainer isn't one of those no pain no gain dinosaurs, that so went out a long time ago...
Way to go with staying in your calorie range!!!
