I did another 2 miles today. I really like the new shoes. My feet didn't hurt or burn at all. I had to go back to walking one time again this time. I can't remember what she was doing, but I didn't have it in me, so I just went back to walking. My legs are sore, but I am determined to keep this up. I always tell myself I can do 1 mile, but I don't feel that is enough exercise for me. I need to really do 2 miles. So... I am going to continue as long as I can. I ate my 6 fruits and vegetables today.

    Congratulations on 6 fruits and veg, that is great. Leslie says that we can go back to walking anytime that things get a bit much and as long as we keep moving we are doing great. If you find that 2 miles at a time are difficult then try doing 1 mile twice a day. You will still get all the wonderful benefits but you won't be pushing yourself to hard. emoticon

    Way to go! You'll get stronger every day. Thanks for the encouraging comments on my blog. I ended up walking after all (yesterday). That was progress for me, also. Usually if I don't do my exercise in the morning, I just write it off for the whole day. I'm kind of in the same boat today. Hope I make it out there for my walk this evening. I guess we have to just keep plugging away. One step at a time. Have a great evening.

Another 2 miles with Leslie

Monday, July 05, 2010

I did my 2 mile walk this morning with Leslie. Notice I am on a first name basis with that woman. LOL It was hard today. I had a little bit of a hard time keeping up with her today. One time when she was kicking, I had to go back to walking, just couldn't do it. I almost quit at the one mile, but felt like I could go on to do two miles.

I bought new shoes. Payless' version of shape ups. They feel great even walking around the mall.

I ate a ton of fruit and vegetables today, so I got that in. Had a nice salad with dinner tonight. I will have to buy more salad. I notice that if I eat a salad with my dinner I am not as hungry.

The temperatures were very hot today in Pittsburgh, we hit over 90. I was in my pool. Felt nice. My two sons are going to go to Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD with friends of ours, so it's just our daughter. It is very quiet without them.

Regretfully, I did not get any walking in today. We went to church and after that I had to make pasta salad to take over my sister's for my brother-law's birthday party. We went to the party and came home and I cleaned my son's room. It was disgusting...

By the time I got done with that, I wasn't feeling too good. Stomach problems again.

So... tomorrow I will be walking the 2 miles with Leslie.

I helped my husband clean a fitness place today. Actually he cleaned and I rode the stationary bike. Talk about great equipment. I have a stationary bike at home, but this one was like a Cadillac vs. a Chevy Cobalt. Big difference. Nice padded seat, everything was computerized. I did 2 miles in 20 minutes. Then I did a one minute cool down. That was what was programed in the machine. It was great!

Right now I am baking for my niece's wedding next week. I want to fit into that "little black dress" and look nice.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July. Enjoy the long weekend. They don't come around long enough.

I wasn't sure I could do it, but I did! I just started and thought well, try to do the 2 mile and I did it!

I did not do well on my eating today at all. I had another piece of my birthday cake and went to a friends and had pizza and two glasses of wine. I really enjoyed myself and hadn't seen my friend for a year, so it was just wonderful to get together with her.

Tomorrow I am going to help my husband clean, so if I don't do my walk, I will get some exercise in.

    I remember when walking two miles to school was NOT a big deal. Congrats! Well, we splurge on birthday cake. Putting calories in is a lot easier and more fun than burning them off. I understand that some people really have fun with their exercise.
I haven't achieved that moving nirvana, yet. Just keep on keeping on! TEE
