My BIL *did* come by today (all the way from Austin - everyone say "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!") and, within about 10 minutes had my VCR and DVD players hooked up to the little box. They work!!!!!!
The TV by itself, not so much so, but I told him that I don't watch a lot of TV. He thinks it just needs a new antenna.....I'll add it to the list. At the bottom. On the back of the page. *g*
I didn't do my workout tonight - instead, after feeding him and my crew, I helped him load up the generator (he did most of the work, but still) so I declared that my workout. The fact that I'm cramping had nothing to do with my decision, nope, not at all. I wouldn't let a little thing like major cramps stop me from working out! *smirk*
Actually, I'm glad I'm cramping - it shows that I have lost some weight. My doc had told me, way back when I had Herself, that my metablolism had changed and not to be surprized if I couldn't drop the weight. I got within 20 pounds of my start weight (which was way too little), and was happy. Cramps were a thing of the past! After Himself was born, I was toting 60 extra pounds....I lost 30, looked good, and no cramps.
Then, my bad year hit. I dropped 60 (looked horrible!) then gained back 55. *sigh* I'm not happy with the weight - it's all below the waist. So, enter the workout plan.
I know I haven't lost a whole lot - but my pants keep falling down around my hips. I have a waist again!!!!! And a little more energy. I'm trying to keep it up, so the fact that my body has changed enough to start cramping again is a good thing, I think.
Or so I will tell myself as I soak in a hot bathtub tonight. And eat massive quantities of chocolate.......*g*
