wake up call on the water...

I'm typically a total water sports wimp, but we brought my sister and her boyfriend out to the lake this past Saturday and decided I'd better try something. Kelsey and I thought tubing sounded pretty safe. And it turned out to be really fun, even though I was yelling at Joel the entire time to stop the boat! Kelsey and I were sharing the tube and it was so hard to hold on. Like I said, I'm a total wimp when it comes to this stuff.

Now, there is something about having babies that has made me more comfortable with my body. I figure if my body can carry a child, it deserves some grace here and there! The baby weight comes off pretty easy for me, so after two children I was feeling okay about myself. Until Sunday rolled around. I could barely get out of bed the morning after that 10 minute stint on the tube. I'm serious....I felt SO OLD! Pathetic. If I can't hold my own weight on an inner tube for 10 minutes without feeling like I've been run over by a truck...this is a serious problem for me! I exercise, but I do nothing in the area of toning and strength training. This was my own personal wake up call to GET INTO SHAPE! I don't need to be Superwoman, but I need to be stronger...and quick! Now...how should I go about that? ;)

In other news, we were able to spend time with Kelsey's boyfriend on Saturday. I'm not sure how comfortable she feels about me talking about their relationship at this point, but I will say that I like him...and I like to think I'm a good judge of character! He treats her well and it is clear he cares for her a whole bunch. But most of all, I like him because he brings out good things in Kelsey and she is herself around him. This is so important. Maybe someday I will post pictures of the two of them. We shall see:)

Amy this post made me laugh so hard! As I read I was thinking to myself, "I wonder how sore she was the next day..." And sure enough you were sore enough to write about it! I'm sorry!! I don't tube very often anymore due to this; it's so painful! It's amazing how you quickly you can find muscles you didn't know you had! I'm glad (but jealous) you guys had a great weekend at the lake.

Love, Jenni

Oh Amy! While I understand that feeling of just needing to get "in shape", I still think you look amazing, especially after having two little ones. =)

If only you lived closer, we could join each other on some runs!

Yes, tubing has that effect on me too! When I fell off the tube a few weekends ago I thought for sure my suit had been shredded and I was going to have major issues getting out of the water. Thankfully my tumble across the water felt worse than it really was.

Hope your muscles recover soon.

You are very brave...I am such a chicken. I don't think I could do the tubing thing! :)
Sounds like such a fun weekend!

I know I don't know you in person, and I totally understand feeling like you need to be more in shape, but I agree you do look really great!

Good job Amy! I haven't been tubing in awhile, and someone would really have to talk me in to getting on one again!
Good luck with the weight training! ; )
How can you be out of shape? You're lifting kids all day!

I am so jealous that you guys got to spend the weekend together! I can't wait to meet Kel's man! :)

I used to love tubing when I was younger, but I think that I would be so scared of going now! And don't even get me started talking about getting in shape...
