Weekend of no exercise . . .

unless you count cleaning, driving and shopping!

I had plans to run on Friday with DD#2 after dropping DD#1 off at work. She wasn't in the "mood" and I had to get DD#3 fed and ready for her cookie booth that night. DH came home in time to take her and I took DD#2 to Kohl's to look for a bathing suit and a dress for her upcoming basketball banquet. We ended up going to Kohl's & Target. She found a bathing suit, but no dress. She's tall, so it's hard to find a dress that's long enough. She got her first bikini bathing suit (since she was a little girl). I wasn't too thrilled, but she looked good and it was fairly modest considering most of them!

I slept in a little on Saturday (8:30) and started cleaning my bathroom and bedroom. It's been a while since I've had the time to deep clean these rooms (especially the bathroom!), so it took me over 2 hours, in between doing laundry and helping DD#3 with her room. She's been watching too much HGTV and constantly wants to rearrange her room!

DD#2 had basketball on Saturday from 1-3. My goal was to drop her off and then run at the park nearby. It was really cold and windy on Saturday, so I ended up staying in the gym and watching basketball. It was the last day of "evaluations" and then they'll be placed on "teams". There are 3 different locations for this league, so they will continue to practice at their location during the week, but they may play on a "team" with girls from different locations on Saturdays. It seems pretty neat and I'm curious to see how it works out. She's done Fall training with this organization before, but this is the first time she's played in the Spring league. The owner boasts that this is a "no nonsense" basketball program and he's not kidding. They started out with drills and then went straight into "games" with very minimal breaks and then some more drills/running at the end. It is definitely for players that want to improve, so it is very competitive - these girls don't mess around! She was exhausted when it was over. She ended up taking a 2 hour nap when we got home and I continued with cleaning.

I had to take DD#3 to another cookie booth on Saturday night. It was so cold & windy. It was actually snowing (which is pretty rare for March in Georgia). It didn't stick, but it was pretty to see. We ended up closing the booth early.

Sunday morning I took DD#2 to confirmation class and when we got home, all 3 wanted to go to the mall. Shopping with 3 girls is not fun, especially for bathing suits! It starts early for girls feeling bad about their bodies and being critical when shopping for a bathing suit. No matter what I said, they found fault. Too bad they can't wear baggy shorts and t-shirts like boys can! There is definitely a lot of skin showing! DD#1 is very large chested, so she is very self-conscious. We found a nice bathing suit for her at Macy's, but it was $128! We're going to wait to see if it goes on sale and get my sister's Macy coupons. I want her to feel good, but $128!

DD#1 & 2 ended up going on their own for a while, which made it a little easier. DD#2 & 3 got a bathing suit and DD#2 found her banquet dress. By the time we got home, I was pretty tired.

I also went way over my daily WW P+ yesterday. I used up my activity points (since there weren't many!) and a few of my weekly points. I was so tired and I found myself really wanting to snack. The good thing is a still tracked!

DH starts overnights tonight. He goes in at 9:30 pm. It's going to be a little warmer this afternoon, so I'm hoping to run right after work. The only thing else we have tonight is DD#2 has basketball @ 7:30.
