In shape or out?!

OUT! I am definitely OUT of shape. Wait, no, I have a shape...it's round. :) I joined our local LA Fitness...great...a good way to get a good workout to help with the baby weight (fondly referred to as my "Noah Love") So, I decided to try out a couple of classes. Last Thursday I went to "Step plus Abs". I've never been to a step class in my life...but there's a first time for everyone, right? On with the story. I get to the class and decided to let the instructor know that it's my first time and see if there is anything I should know ahead of time. Her response to me is, "are you familiar with advance step?" My response back, "huh?" Just kidding I just told her that I had never been to a step class...I'm sure she was laughing inside but she just told me to pay attention to the step "jargon", oh and that they were going to be doing "double step". To make a long, painful (literally) story short...I think they will do step classes in Hell. :) Maybe I just need to learn the terminology. So, tonight I decided to try the "Body works plus Abs" and decided no, no step in hell, just body works taught by my instructor. I hate the feeling that you're not going to be able to walk for the next 5 days...although I do feel like I got a great workout.
When I got home, Hylke had picked up and put away all the dishes from dinner. What a nice and WELCOMED treat!! I really didn't feel like doing much at all...and still don't. :) Thanks to my wonderful hubby.
Noah had his 4 mth. check-up today. The doctor said he looks great! (I already knew that....:)) He weighs 14 lbs. 13 oz and is 26 inches long. I hope he doesn't feel as bad tomorrow as he did the last time he got shots. We'll be home all day, so hopefully he can rest up!!
Vacation time. On Wednesday the three of us are leaving for a much anticipated and for Hylke a much needed and deserved getaway. We are spending 4 nights at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. (check it out...it's awesome... www.kierlandresort.com) We will be staying in the Villas. It will be so nice to have a kitchen and separate bedroom...we are soooo looking forward to some time away, just relaxing. Next week we'll get to spend a couple of days with my parents and sister (and her family) for my birthday. I'm really looking forward to that too!!
Well, I guess I should get a couple things done before I head off to dream land.

Goodnight.

I am out of shape! I started "working" (Quinn comes with me, it's like a play date!) at the daycare in the gym so I can make a little money and get a free membership. I took a cycle class last night and my legs feel like rubber! It was my third time and still felt like my first time alll over again. I don't know that you can get "good" at those classes, which is good. I have a lot of "Quinn love" left and she is a year and two weeks old!! AHHHH!

I'm cracking up! I'm not coordinated for ONE step, let alone TWO. I don't step foot in those classes. I forget that you were a coordinated cheerleader though! Have a great time on your vacation. I'm SOOOOOOOO jealous.
