Slacker :P

Only with posting though! I've got in my workouts.

Monday, 45 minutes, circuits with Tabata intervals
Tuesday, 40 minutes, 11.3 miles

Now I will grant you both of those sessions were in the evening rather than in the morning. I woke up somewhere between 2 and 3 AM on Monday and didn't get back to sleep for over an hour, so when the alarm went off at 5:00 I smacked that sucker silly, and promised I'd work out that night. So I did. And last night Choreboy was closing which makes the evening workout arrangement work a little bit better.

I'll also be riding the bike tonight, but Thursday I'm going to have to haul myself out of bed early on because the Gum Zombie has his spelling test on Friday so we've got to be sure to get those words studied which is a bit difficult to do when Mommy's trying to pump iron.

Speaking of which, I am such a pansy. I tried to bench two 20 lb. dumbbells and learned that it just wasn't happening. I couldn't even get those suckers up an inch. Good grief. Two 15-pound weights? I'm fine. But just up the ante by a measly 5 lbs each and I'm toast. Oh well, at least it's something to work on.

Outside of that, the only interesting thing I've done recently is get my driver's license renewed. I had to get a new picture taken this year, and likely it was a good thing as this was the picture I had (taken in 1999):

and this is the new one, taken just this morning:

Pretty dramatic shift in the hair color department. Also, my face is thinner now thanks to having (finally) lost all the pregnancy weight from the Elder, who was born about 8 months prior to the earlier picture.

I think I can live with it.

My current Drivers License photo is HORRIBLE!! I liked the one before this one. I wish they'd have let me carry that picture over but the change was really too drastic anyway. In the current one, I'm sweating and hot and on steroids from an injury so I look pretty awful, LOL

I assume you also have a portrait of yourself hidden in a closet somewhere that ages for you? ;-) Way to go, miss!

The pictures are both nice. Mine look scary. I look high.

Amanda said...

ROFL and thanks, ladies!

Norma, just call me Dorian ;)

Norma said...

That's what my high school friends call me. ;-)

Amanda said...

As well they should -- good grief, woman, you look all of 18 in the pictures you've posted!

Super Earthling said...

I'm with Norma! You look younger now than you did in the first photo! :D

As for weights...until I read your post I thought I was doing SO good lugging around my new 2-pound weights--and grunting all the while. LOL

Amanda said...

LOL -- Thanks, Susan! And don't stress on the weights. I started with two or three pound weights myself. It just takes time to work up :)

You haven't aged at all since that first picture was taken! You look great.
