Footloose And Kid Free

6 Jan

Last night the Hubs and I had a double date night with our BFF’s.  We both have kiddos and to get a date night out with our spouse is difficult enough, to get a date night out together is borderline impossible.  Thanks to my girl, Sarah’s in-laws and her oldest daughter, B, we had sitters lined up for Tink and her two small cuties, Mimi and Baby Mac.

Sarah and I have a running little joke/reality that Tink and Baby Mac are going to get married one day.  They were born 8 days apart, were due on the exact same due date, we live 4 houses a part from one another, and we would be perfect in-laws to each other because well we love the crap out of each other.  They are as much our family as they are our friends, so the running marriage joke, takes a strange twist when I call them Auntie Sarah and Unkie Matt to Tink …their future daughter in law.

So arranged marriage between pseudo relatives aside, us grownups went out for dinner, drinks, and general goofy no kids around debauchery.  It was a much needed night of fun and laughs and reminded us of the people we are behind the calls for mama, dada, changing butts, and chasing kiddos.  We are fun, hilarious, cool as s#!+ 30 year olds who cruise around in a mini-van.  I think we promised, possibly took a blood oath…the night gets a little foggy near midnight, that we would make this at least an every other monthly ritual.  It definitely needs to be.

We may or may not have acted like caged animals who had just been freed from the zoo…

So, all that crazy fun aside, I had my weigh in today.  Since I had left Tink last night after of course working most of the week, she was losing her crap every time I sat her down this morning.  I could not pee without her screaming for me like I was abandoning her for life.  She was so sweet and snuggly with me and I just could not pry myself away from her to go to weigh in.  So, I did like a normal person and weighed in at home.  The great new is that I was down 2.5 lbs.  That is the weight I gained over Christmas, so I am back to where I was.  Today would have been a picture and measurement day, but considering the fact that I have only lost 3 lbs this month, I am skipping it and will do an update at the end of January.

I am currently on the hunt for something cardio specific that I can do in my house to keep my chain going.  (5 days so far!) I am going to try a demo of the Zumba game on XBox to start.  I will let you all know what I think about it.  I have heard mixed reviews, and may end up just getting a Zumba DVD.  I like to Move It Move It, so I think it would be a fun workout on my off days from my kettlebell.

Still managed my wall sit while we hung out!

I also finally started a Facebook page.  Be sure to like that business up and share it to all your Facebook friends and family.

How was your first week of January?  Are you working those buns out with your wall sits? Have you kept your chain going? What do you do for cardio indoors, at home, in the winter?

    I like the Jillian DVDs. I did 30 Day Shred and burn fat boost metabolism (something like that). I loved them. Not too long and not too short.

      I have the 30 day shred and I do enjoy it…well no I don’t enjoy it, but I think it is a great workout. lol

    I love the Bollywood dancing on Zumba. It gives a pretty good workout but until you get a specific dance down I found it hard to keep a good rhythm and sweat going. I’m sure I looked like a drunken mess of awkwardness until I got a routine memorized.

      I liked the Zumba demo I did, but I absolutely loved the Dance Central game. It will break down the moves before the dance and then you do the dance. It was so much fun and had me sweating like a maniac!

    Looks like y’all had a great time! I’m going to start the wall sits today!

    I use my elliptical at home for cardio. My first week of January was ok, but had pizza and wine with friends last night and weighed in this morning to see that I only lost .4 this week. At least it was still a loss. Congrats on your 2.5!

      You are so right! Down is down chick! I like the eliptical, but we are just not looking to invest in any big ticket items until the hubs , who just graduated, gets a permanent job.

    Yay for you being able to get out. I definitely know how that is. The hubby and I hardly ever get to go anywhere without kids. But I always tell myself one day when they are grown and gone I am going to wish they were tagging along everywhere.

      You are so right! We usually don’t care if we go out, we were together for 10 years before we had Tink, so we have been out all we wanted. It is just nice to get a little break every once in a while, but at the end of the night was knocking over my husband to get in the door to see her!

    Go girl. I made it to 16 seconds when trying a wall sit tonight. Can we blame my boobs? Lol
