I've been having a rough couple of weeks since I joined the gym. I could not for the life of me get the scale to move, in fact most mornings the scale was going in the wrong direction. I finally had a loss this week, so that makes me very happy. I think I've finally figured out the right calorie increase on gym days. Here's hoping that continues to work! I lost 2.1 pounds this week, bringing my total lost to 86.4 pounds.
I lost 1.9 pounds this week, bringing my total lost to 84.3 pounds. I joined the gym this past week and went Tuesday morning for the first time, it surprisingly felt really good to be working out. My knee and foot still bother me from when I fell down the stairs with Emma back in November. I'm seeing my doctor on Friday, so I'll mention it to him, to see what he says about it.
Last Friday Cole and I surprised Grace with Disney on Ice. Grace knew that we were going on a special date, but she had no idea what is was. We decided to take her to see Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Rhode Island. Cole's Mom stayed at home and babysat the twins, so that Cole and I could spend some special alone time with Miss Grace.
Walking to the show, still no idea what we were doing.
Walking into the crowded event, still no idea.
We went in and sat in our seats, and then began to explain what we were doing.
She was very excited!
After we filled her in on what was going to happen Cole went and got her some $10 cotton candy, that came with a hat, and a $10 lemonade. I just could not justify spending $28 on a light up toy that was going to break on the way home. Grace loved the hat and thankfully didn't whine about not having a light up wand.
Enjoying her cotton candy.
We were all very excited for the show to start!
And then it started!
Grace was in awe, and was captivated by the whole thing.
What's a Disney show without some fireworks!
We all had a great time! The show was great! Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy were there. Plus they did scenes from the Lion King, the Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, and Peter Pan. Grace did great and sat through the whole thing. Grace's eyes were glued to the ice. They did a great job interacting with the audience, there was lots of clapping involved!
We had a great experience and will definitely be taking Grace again!
