lilacvioletiris, thanks for organizing, especially with your bundles on the way!
thecoffeebean, would you recommend the BodyStep class? There's one near me that I'd like to try. I do a beginner's step DVD right now.
For the weigh-in: So sorry, Team Green, but I am up a pound to 136. To mitigate it, it's 135.6 to 136.0. I'm not calling the week a loss because I learned a lot.
1) If I'm going to work out in the evening, I need to start by 7 at the latest. I tried twice a bit later and had to stop 20 minutes into my DVD because my little guy who is crawling would be holding my legs and crying to be picked up. I got through the whole step DVD today by starting a little earlier, although I was stepping around him at points and did have to pause it twice. It's cutting down the aerobic benefit since my heartrate and sweating ease up while I play with him for a minute, but hey, it's better than not doing any exercise.
2) I'm good at not eating sweets - as long as they're not in the house! DH and DD made cookies that were delicious and I ate like 7, which was why (combined with a beer) I gained the bit of weight.
I asked DH to only buy sweets I don't like, since there's plenty that he likes that I don't, so I'll see if that pans out.
3) The frozen batch meals I made have been great, so I can't let those run out.
