Since we did Relay yesterday, Molly and I did not walk to church this am. We went to Bible Study, then worship, then we had a potluck afterward. Molly took a Spaghetti Salad and I took a sugar-free cherry cheesecake 'salad' (I think it is more dessert than salad).
Cherry Cheesecake 'Salad"
4# pitted, fresh cherries
32oz Vanilla Yogurt (I use low fat)
1 tub Sugar free Cool Whip
1 sm package Sugar-free Fat-free Jello Cheesecake pudding mix, dry
I mix the pudding mix into the yogurt, add the pitted cherries and mix it all the fold in the Cool Whip.
This evening, I walked 5-1/2 miles to get my 15,000 steps in.
The mission for tomorrow, should we accept it, is to walk over the STEEP mountain and back for our 5 miles tomorrow. We have to go up and down both directions for that one and it is a butt burner!

Today was relay for life and Molly and I went when it started to do our laps. She got in 17 laps and I did my 20 for a total of 5 miles.
After dinner, Rich and I went back and I did another 10 laps for a total of 30 laps/7.5 miles today. Add that to my daily walking and I ended the day with a personal best of 28,000+ steps!
Now it is 10:30 and I am ready for bed, but first some pictures....
We walked in honor of my 103 year old grandmother, an 8 year breast cancer survivor. Here is Molly's note on the wall of Hope-

For the 2nd time in 2 years, I over ate today. Ugh!
But that was the end of the day. To start the day off, Molly & I did 3 sets of stairs at the fish ladder. There are 97 steps, so we felt it! I took some truly awesome pics, which I managed to delete before backing them up to my computer.
Our original goal of 10-15 sets didn't even begin to materialize! So after the stairs, we went to the park and walked for another half an hour. I had 1/3 of my daily step goal done before 7:30 this am, then I walked for 30 minutes of every hour in my office. I have discovered that I get more steps in walking in place to Disco than any other type of music. I had my 15k steps in by 2pm.
When I got home, Rich and I went garage sale-ing, then to the casino for dinner, where I willfully overate this evening. Now, I am ready for bed.
Tomorrow is Relay for Life, so I should get my steps in with little difficulty!
Oh- and when I saw that I was at 18000 steps today, the rebounder got used so I could get to my 20,000 today!

When I first started at the Y, which seems a lifetime ago, I weighed almost 300#. Still, I took a circuit training class which busted my butt every T/Th. I loved it, but was wasted afterward. When I started working, I stopped going to the class and focused on cardio mostly, though Molly and I use the weight room fairly regularly.
Fast forward to today. Molly and I decided that we wanted to start back to the Body blast class. Today we did. I had a few observations.
#1- The exercises aren't as hard as they used to be.
#2- I don't get hot and sweaty during the routine.
#3- I'm not dying when it is over.
#4- I'm not the largest in the class any more, but the smallest!
I will take it again. I expect to have to increase my weights a bit in a month or so (I would sooner, but my rotator cuff is giving me fits). I need to continue my cardio, though, and Molly and I plan to restart spinning at least once weekly.
