So far so good! Had another good day, all the way around. Got new tennies, sports bras and some wicking biker shorts for the gym. No, I haven't gone yet, but I've told Ash we are going this next week! My goal is three times, but that depends on her happiness. They have a child center and she met a friend last week, but if there are no other kids there she won't like to go. I'm not too worried about it because we are lucky enough to have a pool and everyday I'm in it, if for no other reason than to clean it. It's not an intense workout, but I skim it and swim back and forth a little and sometimes we get in again when Daddy gets home.

Whenever I go out to eat I always try to check out the menu and nutrition info first to see what's healthy to eat.
