This And That.....

Thursday, September 20, 2012

I was much more careful when exercising today. I didn't use weights for my first hour. I forced myself to skip most of the first water class. The second class is range of motion, stretching and strengthening. The final class was deep water and I participated fully but didn't try to be a hero.

After class I ran errands, got a flu shot and went home to eat lunch. I had a big tossed salad with a few sliced egg whites thrown in on top. I finished up with a toasted whole wheat pita and an apple. I've had over 65 ounces of water today so I would consider myself a success.

Resting Out Of The Water Today

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

After overdoing it yesterday, I benched myself today. That meant no water aerobics for me today. Instead, I took a walk with hubby and the two dogs. It was very muggy today and we all overheated quickly. The air conditioning felt wonderful when we came back to our house! I will try to be more careful and pace myself tomorrow. I've done a great job with pacing so far and this is just a slip up.

I Overdid My Workout Today

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I overdid my workout today and am dragging. I know better and just got caught up in my water classes. I will be more careful tomorrow and really watch my fatigue level. No doubt I will be stiff and sore tomorrow. Time to go and rest!

    Ooops! And you were doing so good setting reasonable limits. As you have told me, more is not necessarily better. Take care. Rest.Maybe a massage and some stretching??

Just Walking,Chores And Being Thankful Today!

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Today is the day I rest and don't do water exercise. I plan to catch up on my chores and take an easy walk. Reigning myself in is difficult because exercise feels so great when I'm doing it. I have to remind myself that more isn't always better - sometimes it is just more and can even be counterproductive.

So as I ponder what I want to do today, I am aware of how blessed I really am. To set the tone for my week, I'd like to list some things for which I'm thankful.....

Freedom
Freedom of movement
Technology
A home of our own
Healthy Food
My hubby, daughter, sister and Aunt Doris
Water aerobics classes
Air conditioning
My car and the gas to run it
Traci and Tiberius - the world's most spoiled K-9s
Electricity and running water
A safe place to live and a bed to sleep in
Polyester swimsuits
Weather appropriate clothing and foot wear
Good friends
Spark People and Spark Friends!
My workout buddies
My emotional support system
The invention of the telephone and cell phone
Good books and movies
My faith

Saturday...

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Today was a very busy day. I got up, made a healthy breakfast and got ready to go to my deep water aerobics class. I decided to go about an hour early and water jog before class started. Several other ladies in the class were of like mind, so we had a great chance to visit before class started. Our instructor led a great class and I felt like I had a vigorous workout!

After class, I hurried to the mall to watch my sister model in a fashion show. I got there late. Wouldn't you know that she was the first model and I missed her big moment. I was bummed! I did get to see how she looked when all of the models strolled back through the crowd at the end of the show.

While my sister was changing and taking care of several tasks, I decided to take a walk through the mall. I did a 10 minute walk at about 3mph and a 10 minute walk at about 2mph. I figured that was enough exercise walking for today since I had already spent 110 minutes doing water exercise. I spent the next 55 minutes going into stores to shop. I found several small bargains and did some Christmas shopping. It was fun.

I returned to the site of the fashion show and my sister was finished. We walked to our respective cars, made arrangements to meet for breakfast tomorrow morning and I went home. (She still had some errands to run) When I got home I fixed and ate lunch and lay down to read. I was tired!!! Later I did some laundry and fixed dinner. Now it's time to call it a day and get some sleep.
