View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day

Will is 5 today. I join the endless ranks of mothers before me who simply can’t believe it is possible. I rejoice in Will – his spirit, his sensitivity, his intelligence, the love in his smile, his generosity. He is a gift to the world, but beyond that, he pricelessly precious to me.

I put a “5” in frosting on his waffle this morning with a candle, and wore a birthday hat to wake him up. “Nice birthday hat, Mommy!” he said when he was coherent. I put up happy birthday signs last night and ‘messages’ from Curious George, Super Why!, and Cat in the Hat. He is the easiest child to do things for because he is so immensely appreciative. He makes you just want to give and give and give.

On another subject. Of course (!), I can’t find last week’s exact body measurements, but this week’s show my waist under 30” for the first time in a long time. I believe my hips are down too (under 37”), which is always hard to accomplish for me. Chest and thighs are the same (again, I think). So, it appears that the T-Tapp exercises/stretches are doing something, which is better than nothing. I am hesitant to declare success or victory or total endorsement but I have to admit its nice - because I have actually GAINED weight over the last two months of watching my calories in/out again. It freaks me out, because I’ve always given more credence to the scale than measurements, which on the surface makes no logical sense but I’m always sure I’m not measuring consistently, so the scale seems a safe/more reliable barometer. I got the T-Tapp Basic Workout Plus on Ebay last night for $24 including shipping, so I’m looking forward to seeing how my ideas of the movements correspond to the visuals.

My tentative plan is to do 4 weeks of this, and then figure out what is next. It is nice to take a break from my traditional/usual workouts, but it does make me nervous. I think I’ll start trying to figure out how to at least get more walking in. I like the stretching of it - and I'm working on the breathing - breathing deliberately w/out hyperventilating has always been a challenge for me. :laugh5:

It could all be in my head - but, no pills = more :eyebrows:

Steve is starting to feel used. :wink3:

Wow, is he 5 already? That is amazing! I'm not a parent, and even I can't believe it.

Glad the T-Tapp is doing some good things for you. It will be interesting to see how it pans out over your 4 weeks.

I was on one pill that definitely affected my libido--I kept changing until I found one that didn't b/c I do NOT consider that an acceptable side effect! :laugh5:

Happy day to Will! And to you. :) I love the birthday waffle and hat. What a good mommy you are.

Sounds like T-Tapp might be worth a try, for sure. Glad it seems to be working for you!
