Your Mama

Well, my fitness challenge is going much better.  Yesterday I did some Zumba to ring in my 45 minutes of cardio.  My 2-year-old son had fun trying some Salsa moves too.  I love Zumba and for any of you who might be thinking of a new exercise routine.  This mix of latin moves, strengthening, and dance just might be for you.

Today was a pamper mommy day.  For the first time in a long time, I had the entire morning and afternoon to do what I wanted.  The day started with a coffee and a not-so-fitness challenge-of me- chocolate croissant.  It was from Whole Foods.  Does that count as wholesome goodness?
From there a massage to treat my neck and shoulders which are out of whack from coughing.  It really helped me feel better and ready to tackle another day of staying healthy and on track for the fitness challenge.

Then a wonderful lunch with my hubby sans any little person asking to go to the bathroom over and over.

While cleaning out our Explorer at the car wash before carpool, I realized I couldn't find my cell phone.  My mind went to such places as to picture me throwing it away in that big communal garbage can.  Yuck.

Just then I noticed a young guy debating over which air freshener to buy and walked over and asked him if he might call my cell phone so I could locate it.  He looked at me sort of puzzled, laughed, and said, "Sure."

He called and it rang at the very bottom of what is the abyss of my purse.  I thanked him and he said, "No problem, that is just like something my Mom would do."

Whoa now, your Mama? ...and then it hit me.  He thinks I look old enough to be his mama or near about.  Oh wow.  In my minds eye, I am still looking pretty hip and happening, but who am I kidding stretch pants rarely lie.

Back to the fitness challenge and to my closet to throw away any mom jeans I might own.  Here's to good health and the occasional chocolate croissant.
