It's so hot and I don't feel like exercising!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Help! Do you think I'm just being lazy? I really need to start exercising again! I stopped because of joint pain and flu but I need to start being active again. The problem is, it's so hot these days and I can't even turn on the air-conditioner this time because of the increasing cost of electricity!

Help!

  Too bad you aren't living in Ohio right now. We have cooler temps and the wonderful fall leaves to enhance our outdoor walking.

    When it is too hot, I go to the mall or store where it is air-conditioned to do my walk. I know you can do it if you set your mind on it. You can still start over. Hope this helps. Take care & have a fabulous day! emoticon

    What about walking in an mall with a/c? In Kuwait people walk in the mall during the hot summer or high humidity.

    I live in AZ and right now i get up and exercise around 4:00am because it is cool enough to just need a fan or you can walk outside in the nice cooler temp.
Start slow with just walking and build to where you want to be. emoticon

  Start out small, may be doing some easy workouts at home and take it from there. There are some great 10 min ones in SP and on youtube too.

    Can you find places where it's colder? Maybe shaded park for walk/jog? Or a gym? Or if at home, try to open the window to get the hot air out or do exercises in front of a fan, hehe.

Still crocheting my motif-work shawl

Sunday, September 30, 2012

I've done and joined 30 motifs so far and I'm not even a third done. This is because this is a long shawl, you know, those that you wear with a loop around your neck. All I can say is this : needlework is very time-consuming but oh! so fun to do! And the wonderful sense of accomplishment you get when you finish a piece? Priceless!

I promise I will post a pic when I'm done! Same with my cross-stitch piece that I'm currently avoiding..........

    I can't wait to see your pictures! I know what you mean about avoiding cross stitch. I used to love it and have unfinished and untouched projects packed away. I took an unfinished with me on vacation, got it out and did about 7 stitches, tore them out and went back to knitting my sweater! I guess :"to everything there is a season..."

Discovered a new game on Facebook!

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Honestly, you can waste hours playing games on facebook. I don't pay for extra credits though. Seems like a waste of money! The game is called candy something. It's fun!

Hot day!

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

It's soooooo freakin hot today! I wish I was in a place where there is Fall! The cooler temps will be most welcome! Heck! Even Winter would be better than this heat! I have to air-conditioner on but it's still boiling in here! A wee bit better but still boiling!

    It's was warm today, but not so hot (77*). I'm in southern California, so we don't really get seasons here either. And I'm not a fan of cold weather. Today kept seeing people online talking about sweaters and scarves and hats and I was silently laughing at their cold weather plight in my head. lol Where do you live that there are no seasons?

A treat that resulted in a 40 minute walk.

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Today, I walked 20 minutes from my home to the cafe. I had 2 vadais (a kind of savory Indian doughnut) and 4 pieces of fish crackers. I washed it down with and iced milo. I actually wanted iced tea but if I had tea, I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight, so I had to settle for milo.

By the time I finished my snack, it was raining cats and dogs, so I walked next door to the vet's. I spent like 45 minutes stroking the cats there. He's got like 10 cats running around his clinic. I had a good time lavishing attention on some fat cats! lol!

When the rain let up, I walked 20 minutes back to my home. I hope I'm not too heavy for my dialysis treatment tomorrow. I guess I'm in for a scolding (because of the iced milo)...........
