Happy Weekend! On the exercise and fitness front today, I took a three mile walk to get ready to walk a 5K. It was another perfect day for a long walk. Then I came home and did ChaLean Extreme. I’m on the lean circuit now and that one is the most intense. You get a weight and core workout at the same time. It really has increased my metabolism. My weight is consistently 3 lbs. lighter since I increased my weights during this round. Woo hoo!
I had a whirlwind Thursday and Friday. Our family hosted a choir member from Hofstra University Thursday night. My daughter, Katie is in the Choir at her high school and the Hofstra choir came and workshopped with them, did a concert that evening and left the next morning. I got up extra early to take Leah (who sang beautifully by the way) to catch her bus. I worked all day, then changed clothes and drove an hour and a half to see “Menopause the Musical” with some gal pals. The show was an absolute hoot! If you are female and over forty, you owe it to yourself to see this one.
I didn’t get home until 12:30 p.m. and had to wake my daughter at 3:30 a.m. (I know get the toothpicks for the eyelids) to go on a bus trip to NYC to see “Sister Act”. Needless to say, I am feeling a little bit sleep deprived today. Thought this would be a good time to share an infographic from frugaldad.com on the dangers of sleep deprivation. Studies show if you average only 5 1/2 hours of sleep per night in a year, you will also average a 12 pound weight gain? YIKES Another good reason to get your Zzzz’s
