Yesterday, I took Karissa to a program at the library. My sister lives in an area where she was able to do all sorts of classes and playtime things with her son when he was a baby and we don't really have anything here. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE living near the beach, but sometimes it does stink when we don't have all of the amenities that other places have. BUT, I was talking to a friend from church about that and she works at a local library. She told me about a program at one of the other libraries. It is a 40 minute drive....I wish one of the closer libraries would pick up this program...but it was worth it! We had so much fun doing activities and movements and singing and saying nursery rhymes. Karissa was wide-eyed, just soaking it all in. She got a little fussy during part of it, but then after a few minutes let out a huge burp and was better. I checked out a book so we could do our own little movement and rhymes at home and she was laughing and loving it. Of course, as soon as Dave grabbed the video camera she acted like she wasn't enjoying it anymore. We'll have to try again later. Another good note is that Karissa is up to 11 lbs! Hopefully, she'll maintain that or gain even more so she can impress her doctor! We'll have to go all next week without weighing her which is a long time for us. The reason we'll skip a week of weighing her is because we will be busy laying on the beach or poolside in Hilton Head Island! Dave and I discovered this place a couple of years ago when we went on our road trip. It is gorgeous and warm. There are building codes so there are no huge billboards or hotels like in our beach areas, so it feels like a secluded, quiet place when it is really a beach resort. When we get back we have doctors appointments and softball games so it might be a little while before we can get back on here and update you on the trip. So the point for today - It is Wednesday...weigh-in day. Before I say how I did, I must confess....I missed 2 days of shredding....Yup....not one, but TWO. Not good....haven't been tracking my calories either....again, not good. And just in case you are wondering, I still HATE the plank. lol So anyway, I'm down one pound. Considering the above, it's not bad. I got a new scale the other day. I was weighing in every week at my mom's and now I can weigh in at home. But it shows the body fat percentage and everything and that is not good. I'm around 24% and it's supposed to be 19%. Hopefully shredding will take care of that. See you in a couple of weeks!
