I've Achieved My Exercise Goals This Week!

Friday, September 11, 2009

I'm feeling proud of myself today. I set a private goal of going to water exercise four times this week and I met that goal! I also did quite a bit of walking - the team walk yesterday and walking for the purpose of exercise inside an air conditioned place. I'm not sure how sore my muscles will be tomorrow, but mentally I feel great!

A Fifteen Minute Mile

Thursday, September 10, 2009

This morning our Polk County Group team met for our fifth team walk. Once again we all walked a mile in fifteen minutes. We were so busy talking and having a good time that before we knew it, we were all the way around the lake. I would have liked to do a second lap but I needed to get to water aerobics class. Who would have thought last year that I'd be able to walk a fifteen minute mile and not be the least bit out of breath! This is just one more example of measuring progress without the scale!

This Week's Workouts

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

So far this week, I've done 2 workouts in the water. Tomorrow, I intend to do another one. Tomorrow we have a substitute teacher and I understand he's a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to it! I've been alternating between water gloves and water weights this week and it seems to be helping my muscle soreness. I also cut down on the number of exercises I did with my arms above my head. This has helped with the pain in my shoulder and neck. (I still have pain but it isn't as bad when I'm more careful.) I will continue to do this until I see the neurosurgeon. I'm still waiting to hear about an appointment. I'd like to get it treated and move on with things! Patience is a virtue and all that!

I'm feeling pretty good about what I've been doing. My arms are looking more toned - I expect I'll be able to see more tone as the time goes on. I've only been consistently doing the water aerobics class for 5 weeks now. I'm enjoying it!

Labor Day Weekend

Monday, September 07, 2009

Today is Labor Day and we're going to a picnic at a neighbor's home. We had company until yesterday morning and were busy most of the time. For some reason I was especially tired after everyone left. Perhaps it was because we were non stop all day on Saturday. I decided to take it easy and listen to my body. Today I feel much more energetic! I guess resting for a day worked. I will try to eat healthy at the picnic and get my walking in early before it gets too hot.

Have a great Labor Day everyone!

Fun Exercise Opportunities!

Saturday, September 05, 2009

Today, we have family gathered for some holiday weekend quality time. We'll go out to breakfast (got to love the egg whites, veggies, fruit and whole wheat toast!) and then go to yard sales. I love going to yard sales! For one thing, I get the chance to get out and walk around for a few hours while doing something that is fun. Secondly, I have managed to upgrade several light fixtures in our house; getting a custom look for pennies on the dollar. It really makes me feel good to get a great "bargain" and it's fun too! My hubby was proudly showing off our Tiffany lamp and our crystal chandelier yesterday to his family, when I walked in the door from going to the post office. They were suitably impressed that I had spent a grand total of $35 for the two beautiful fixtures! The best part was that I walked and walked and walked the day I bought them! I never realized ,before I started tracking my activities, what the added benefits are of looking for exercise opportunities. They are everywhere if you look. I now take the stairs instead of the elevator whenever I can. When I go to Wal Mart I allow enough time so that I try to go up and down every isle in the store (even if I'm not buying anything from that isle). It's a good workout (when it isn't crowded) plus you get to walk indoors in the air conditioning. That's a plus when you live in a place like Florida! Sometimes I go to the mall and just walk a few laps indoors. I even manage to do it without buying anything! For me, it adds a little variety to the usual walking around our neighborhood. So, I'm going to continue to look for exercise opportunities that are maybe not so obvious. They're fun and painless!

    Great eye spotting the treasures at garage sales. I enjoy looking to see if other people's junk is better or worse than my own. Sounds like you have been looking at some pretty good treasures.
