what is that I see?

I think I have found something that had been lost for a long time.  My abs!  They were nowhere to be found over the past 11 years since I had my first child.  In fact, my to my dismay, I even had a little of that diastasis recti after the kids.  That is where the stomach muscles separate as your belly gets larger.  Which by the way, is super gross the first time you discover it.  I just about had a cow.  Called the doctor and everything.  I thought I was coming apart.  These are the things no one shares with a new mother.  But, I digress.

I am no where near a six-pack but if you look carefully, you might notice some lines along the sides.

Look very carefully to the right.  See?  See them? They are still there!  And that great hole near my belly button has filled in nicely.  Guess all that core work on the stupid ball actually works.  Huh. Who knew?  I might actually be able to wear a two-piece suit without sporting a muffin top this year.  :)

I have the day off tomorrow!!  YAY!  First, I'm swimming at 7:30 a.m. to get that workout done for the day.  The pool that I swim at has closed the lap swim at noon (which is when I usually go) so that the grade school kids can come for swimming lessons.  Who do they think they are, anyway?  Then I'm going to destroy all evidence of the grey hairs mentioned in the previous blog with my hair appointment.  Next on the agenda is to go to look at bikes, figure out what size I need and then rent one for my upcoming tri.  I'm not quite ready to buy one and I'd really like to get a used one, but we'll see.  I have to drop off my taxes  :/ tomorrow and I hope to meet up with my friend and tri-buddy BD.   Busy day! 

Have a great weekend everyone!  Here's to finding lost body parts!  (I'll drink a green beer to that!)  *Note to lats and tris--please feel free to come home now.  Abs misses you.

YAY! Your abs look great and I am so glad they come home. Now let's get those lats and tris back where they belong!

You have a very busy day indeed. I hope you have a great time.
