and this time I mean the bug/virus, not the temperature. I'm blaming DH for me fighting off this dang cold. The extreme temperature changes between outside and inside (sun vs. air conditioning) have compromised my immune system!! He's not buying it either.
Didn't feel up to going to the gym tonight, but I did take the dog for a 30-minute walk outside. (Duh! Where else would we walk??) So, overall I got in 60 minutes of walking today.
Now, it's time to go read my book and see if the hero smartens up and admits that he loves the heroine!

DH likes to play online poker. I'm fine with that. It doesn't cost anything and he enjoys it. The only thing is that when he is playing poker, I cannot be on the Spark People web site. I have quite the streak going in that I have logged on and spun the wheel every single day since I joined...332 days today. To keep that streak going, I need the computer. When he is on until after 9:00 at night, I don't get my turn until "late".
Okay, okay, 9:00 is not technically late. BUT, when you spend about an hour on the site at a time (and I do), it's getting closer to being late by the time I finish. And, I'm OLD!! At least, I feel old by this time of the night!
I'd better cut this gripe session short as it's already past 10:00 and I have to get up in just over seven hours, and I need 10 hours of sleep every night! At least I think I do.
Done complaining. Off to dream land. Later taters!

and more of the same tomorrow! I do so like the warm weather. Of course, DH has turned on the air conditioner, so I need to put on my jacket when I'm inside. Already making plans to sit on the patio at work for lunch tomorrow and soak up some warmth!
On a related note, in the summer, the one body part that you let most people see naked is your arms. Because of that, I've decided to restart the Hundred Push-up Challenge. I got about half way through earlier this year and then hurt my back. Really bummed about that. So, starting over. In my initial test I did 23 push-ups. Not bad for not doing any for a couple of months!
This time, I am NOT going to shoot my big yapper off and challenge folks at work to a push-up stand-off in 6 weeks. Luckily, everyone else had issues too, so we all just let it drop. This time, it's for me!

Started the day with 35 minutes on the elliptical. Came home, ate and started laundry. Then it was off to the softball fields to watch my daughter play and work concessions. Quick trip to the library, and then home again to get some more laundry done.
About 4:00, headed to a friend's house for his graduation party. Sat outside, talking, drinking (water in my case), eating and basically enjoying the beautiful weather. Back home, sparking people and then off to read (and do laundry). So, other than laundry, it was a GREAT day!
Hope everyone else had beautiful weather and the chance to enjoy it!

I blogged yesterday that I was going to be paying today for my run yesterday. I was sure that my quads would be SCREAMING at me for the minute I stood up. But...they don't hurt! At all! I can hardly believe it! I did a workout on the elliptical this morning (no pain), walked to and from my son's school twice (no pain) AND rode bikes with my son to go get some army men (very important, you know). All of that and NO PAIN!! I must be getting in better shape than I thought! Hee hee! I'm no JM fitness model, but I can walk! Bonus!!!
By the way, today was bread making day. The kids all loved it. They got to do the mixing in a plastic bag so there was minimal mess there. Then, they kneaded the dough and shaped into a loaf. Then, the loaves were put in a proofing oven to raise and then bake. Then, each kid got to bring their own loaf home. Them kids can bake! It was tasty bread. My son was a little bummed that he couldn't eat his own bread, but was pretty excited that both Mom and Dad liked it.
Time to go chill, read a book and sort of watch the movie my men have on.
Have a sparky good evening!
