What a week!

From my littlest one getting sick over New Years, allergic reaction to Penicillin, to now both my boys having the stomach flu...ugh...I am exhausted!  What a week!

I was able to squeeze in a hot yoga session and a spinning class at least!  Oh, and because of my amazing husband supporting me, I also went to a Canucks game and had a Partylite show.  It was busy, that is for sure - but like I've said previously, I am expecting my lifestyle to change dramatically.

Ever since I started working out and exercising, I have stopped taking my anti-anxiety medication...something to look into medically.  I feel better than I have in 10 years, all because I am taking time to watch what I eat and exercise. 

The spinning class I went to on Wednesday was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  I swear, 10 years ago when I used to spin a lot at the gym, at least 3 days a week, the classes were harder.  Not to say I didn't work up a big sweat, as well I was very "bottom" sore for the next couple of days, LOL.  The instructor I talked to before the class began kept reassuring me that this class was extremely hard, and all the people in it were regulars and if I had a hard time just to 'cool down' and take it easy.  I totally felt like she was judging me, how happy was I when I finished her class!  I kinda felt like sticking my tongue out at her, yeah real mature! :)

In just a few minutes I am off to my first Bootycamp with a bunch of girls from this group 90Days2Life.  Tomorrow is hot yoga again, ahhhh, what a life!  As my husband held me last night, he said he has already noticed a difference, just in how tight my skin is getting.  Yes!  From a size 14 now, down to a 6 for summer.  Wish me luck!


  1. Wow Joanne, I am impressed. I would like to shed a few pounds myself, but have to wait at least 3 more weeks before I can startworking out again. ( not allowed to do any sports for 6 weeks due to the surgery).Nice Andrew is so supportive too. With Rich on the road all the time I can only work out in school time.

    Now that I had my ear fixed the world is a bigger place for me but I am still not to sure how I want to fill that in. So many ideas and plans, but what I need is a plan to schedule all those plans. I need a personal organizer:), (and a personal trainer, a housekeeper and a babysitter).

    Hope the boys are feeling better soon! Allergic reaction to penicillin? That is scary.

    Keep it up Joanne.You are inspiring me!


  2. I am so proud of you. You keep me motivated as well. I love it. I am getting addicted to enjoying the feeling I get after working out. I look forward to seeing all our goals be met over the next few months. So glad we were able to connect thru the 90days2life group! Soooo Excited foe what is to come!!
