My current weight chart...

I can't find my weight book yet.  (Give me a break, we've been here 2 weeks and I'm slightly depressed about my lack of friends situation.)  So I snapped a picture of my weigh in chart.  6 weeks of losses, 2 gains, but I'm still down for the year.

Chin up Melzie!!

I've highlighted the Y's class schedules.  And I plan on keeping to my schedule as much as possible.  My morning will still be my main time, unless my husband has to go into work early. 

We visited the pool yesterday and I will be going there a lot as well.  I'm not much for new places on my own.  I'm a chicken, but now I've seen it.  I know what to expect, so BRING IT ON!

5:15am Spin Class...

"Life is like riding a bicycle -
in order to keep your balance,
you must keep moving."
 ~Albert Einstein

This quote got me this morning.  I'm still trying to feel my legs, they ache.  But I feel good.  I wasn't really going to go to a class so early in the morning.  But, with the dog escaping last night, and my not sleeping so well, I went ahead and hit the class.  I figured there wouldn't be too many people there. 

Boy was I wrong!!

The class was full.  I saw only a couple bikes empty, and I snagged a normal bike in a back corner.  I still kept up with them, I still did it all, but not on a spin bike.  *hanging head in shame*  There were at least 30 people in that class.  Did I mention the time?  5:15AM, pre-dawn, no sun, ice on the windshields... EARLY.

Nice thing though, no traffic, got in, got out and got showered before my son's alarm went off.  My husband was even still in bed when I let myself back into the house.  Hot breakfast made, lunches packed, and we had time to joke around before everyone left me home alone.

I think I'm going to stick to the 5am drill...  even after the kennel gets made like a prison.  Something about being ready to go so early-- makes me happy.

Yyyyy MCA!

So we finally got there.  Kid had the orientation.  I took a Zumba class.  Husband lifted along with kid after the orientation.  The music was loud, I still can't wiggle, but I popped my hip, and that was good.  It has been tweaked for a couple days now.

Came home to an escaped convict.  Black, furry, answers to "hey dog!"
He got out.  Again.  ARGH!

I may not be back there till next week. Dog can't be trusted, and I refuse to let him run around crazy.  He's almost 100 pounds of lovable slobber.  But only our neighbor knows that.

I'm back!

We are moved, but not fully unpacked.
The kid is registered in school.
I've found the library, his school, my MIL's house and a great trail to walk the dog.
I've even found a TOPS group to join, and weighed in last night (where I lost almost as much as I gained last week in the middle of stress eating & packing.
