FTF "Snow Day Edition"

What have you been doing on this bitter cold day? We have been playing!!! I have been taking full advantage of this extra day home with my son. We have sung songs, practiced crawling (this is work in progress), and have eaten some fruit puffs (me too!! He will eat one if I do!).

SEE: Me and my handsome son!

As for my workouts this week, again I feel like they weren't all that great. I am having a really hard time with this no running thing. My doctor said that I could try to run, I guess technically he cleared me, but I have to look to the future. Do I want to have a total knee replacement like my mom at the age of 53? Um, no thanks. So, I have been doing the Pilates/elliptical/strap the son to me walking thing. The good thing about doing these types of activities are: I have not gained any weight! The bad thing is, I haven't lost any! I am okay with not losing any weight but at the same time I am not okay with feeling like I did not get a good workout. I am one of those people that like to break a really good sweat and I haven't done that in some time now. Anyway, here is what I did this week.

Saturday: 30 minute Pilates workout.

Sunday: 25 minute walk with son in tow, 30 minute Pilates workout.


Tuesday: 9.5 miles on the bike. All the ellipticals were taken (me frowning).

Wednesday: 45 minute Pilates workout.

Thursday: 27 minute walk with son in tow.

Friday: 30 minute walk with son in tow.

Do you see something wrong here? I do. I am never going to reach my goal if I don't get my butt back on that elliptical!!!!!

Happy Fat Ticker Friday and (for all you teachers out there) Snow Day too!!!!
