52-Week Walking Plan Week 4, Day 2 etc.

Monday, September 06, 2010

Today I did:

52-Week Walking Plan
Week 4, Day 2
20 minute walk

Got held up for around half a minute by a neighbour enquiring after my health, bless her. :-) I'm keeping everything crossed that by this time tomorrow I'll be blogging that I am in the clear boobie-wise! My appointment is tomorrow morning. Wish me luck! :-)

My Pedometer Stats were good in spite of the temporary hold-up:
Pace: 20 minute mile
Calories: 93
Steps: 2332
Time: 0:20:40
Distance: 1.05 miles

28-Day Bootcamp Challenge
Week 4, Day 2,
Video 2

Did the workout video twice, as per this week's instructions. I will also do Day 4 and Day 6 twice to meet the requirements this week. It works out then that my lower, upper and core all get equal extra attention. :-)

A visit to the local Co-Op, and a five minute bounce completed my basic step count, which is all I want to do today so that I can save my body for the walk all the way to the hospital tomorrow.

I've been on my feet quite a bit today, and my legs are aching from the double exercise whammy! :-) The reason I've been on my feet so much is that I'm in the process of cutting 98 skeins of embroidery floss into metre lengths and attaching them to cards by colour. It is a bore of a job, but well worth it once it is done, because I can then see at a glance the various shades of colour I have to hand. The highlight is when I can unravel a skein without it tying up in knots.

To attempt this, I slip off the two paper tubes, then try and find a way to open up the skein and slip my hand through, so I am wearing it like a bracelet. Then I pull on one end of the cotton, while the skein, hopefully, twirls around on my wrist and unravels. I drape it over my floor-standing sewing frame so that it doesn't tangle, and then proceed to fold it in half, then quarters, and finally eighths, then it is a simple case of snipping through the loops and threading the floss onto the cards I have hole-punched to accommodate them.

You really wanted to know all that, didn't you! *grin*

A funny thing happened to me outside the Co-op today....

I was standing at the cash dispenser, sorting out what I would need for tomorrow, when a couple pulled up and the woman driver got out of the car, while having an argument with her fella. She had parked on the zigzag lines, right in front of the zebra crossing, which is illegal. The row about it had obviously been ongoing as they approached the store becaue I heard the fella from the passenger seat saying, "But it's a £60 fine for parking on the zigzags!" Her response? "Doesn't matter, you're staying in the car!" Then she flounced past me into the shop, and before I could stop myself, the words "Doesn't make it any more legal though!" escaped from my mouth! Ooops! Have you ever thought you said something to yourself, only it wasn't? She didn't hear me, but her fella did, because at the time he was getting out of the passenger side and walking round to sit in the driver's seat. I turned from the machine, putting my purse away, and met the eyes of this kid, as he sat there, obviously worried, waiting for his girlfriend to come back out.

I'm afraid that at this point I was really wicked. I went to cross back over, making sure that he saw me pointedly look at the registration number of the car before I crossed. Then I made a big show of having to strain to see past the car to check for traffic before crossing, and once I had crossed and walked a few metres from the crossing I stopped, took a pen out of my bag and wrote the reg number on my hand in full view of him! I'm a wicked mean woman! The shop security cameras deal with anyone who parks on the zigzags, but I'm guessing the couple don't know that. I just wanted to make a point, and I think I did! *evil grin*

Well, I'm sorry, but they are endangering people by parking like that. I've lost count of the number of idiots who park on those zigzags, forcing people using the crossing to step several feet into the road to see if anything is coming, and a lot of these are little kids! Several of us have had near misses, and it is hard on drivers to suddenly see someone in the act of crossing the road when they are so close to the crossing that to brake suddenly could cause an accident!

Well, I have to keep it brief. We have a storm headed our way, and I don't like having the computer plugged in because of the risk of frying if the power becomes erratic as sometimes happens during storms. Instead, I shall eat my dinner - ratatouille on a bed of tagliatelle sprinkled with a little cheddar, and then do some more floss unravelling. I have such an exciting evening ahead of me. LOL

Hope you are all having a good day!

    Man, I can't stand for people to park in no parking zones. People here are notorious for it and the police are slack at enforcing it. Really, would it kill you to park a few feet away in the designated parking area and walk those extra feet? Grrr! Anyway, I'm glad you said/did what you did!

Awesome job on the exercise, as well! You're doing great, my dear friend!

Great workouts as usual. As for the skiens, you must have the patience of a saint...don't think I would be of much help to you in that department...I would cut my way out of every mess. I have a hard enough time with yarn...lol

    Oh I love your attitude Lexie! Hahaha, I just know that guy is going to make sure he never parks anywhere NEAR a zebra crossing in future, lol.
Great workout, I feel tired just thinking about it. Love your dedication and determination.
I used to do that same thing with embroidery cottons, right to the looping over the wrist bit! Never ever unwound smoothly though, and at times I had to cut my way out of it.
Sending good luck, healthy vibes your way for your doctor's visit tomorrow. If love and good wishes count for anything, you're going to get the all clear, cos so much of both have been, and still are, being sent to you via Spark.

    Good for you standing up for rights. Its as bad as healthy people parking in handicap stalls to supposedly 'run a quick errand' at the store, or worse the lot is so full they don't want to park too far away. Makes my blood boil, it does.
Way to go with your workouts. I get all knotted up thinking about what you are doing with those skiens -I am two left thumbs when it comes to dexterity lol.
Hope you rest up now, and looking forward to your all clear blog tomorrow!!!

A Week in Review: 29th August - 4th September 2010

Sunday, September 05, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
4, 6, 7, 6, 5, 7, 6 = 41/35 one portion down on last week (record 49)
After a streak of 45 days I dropped the ball this week. :-( It was a very bad day last Sunday emotionally, and yes I'm disappointed, but on the plus side now I have a streak to improve on! :-)

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 8, 8 = 56/56 Same as last week (record is 67)
Again, I dropped the ball a touch on the Sunday, so I have a 45 day streak to beat! :-)

Calories in range 4/7 (record 5/7)
Carbs in range 6/7 (record 7/7)
Fat in range 3/7 (record 5/7) It was a BAD week for fat. Don't ask! *shakes head* What was I thinking? Putting 2 sausages and a portion of mac 'n' cheese on the same day's menu?
Protein in range 5/7 (New record 5/7) This is good! Unfortunately it came at the expense of my fat intake. Them's the swings and roundabouts. :-P

To be fair I had an upset stomach for a couple of days and that affected me quite badly in the whole food choices and what I could actually face eating. That plus Tara's eating issues needing coaxing back to normal, caused me to make poor choices rather than see food wasted, and we were also on a seriously tight budget, and well, this is the result. I wish I could say lesson learned, but tight budgets are going to be the norm for a while. I have seriously got my work cut out to find a solution to this conundrum. :-)

52-Week Walking Plan
Week 3

Sun: 15 mins
Mon: 20 mins
Tue: 15 mins
Wed: 10 mins
Thur: 20 mins
Fri: Rest Day
Sat: 25 mins

All good this week, even to the point of managing to get one 19-minute mile in, which shows that I can increase my speed in time. Yay!

28-Day Bootcamp Challenge
Week 3

Sun. day 1 - Video 1 - Cardio
Mon. day 2 - Video 2 - Lower Body
Tue. day 3 - Video 3 - Upper Body
Wed. day 4 - Video 4 - Core
Thur day 5 - Video 2 - Lower Body
Fri. day 6 - Video 6 - Upper Body with weights
Sat. day 7 - Video 4 - Core

This week we had to up our cardio, which I think I've done ok. We also had to meet our five a day fruit and veggies, which I did averaged over the week, even though I fell slightly short on the Sunday.

3600 steps met and exceeded every day.
Minimum daily steps increased to 3700.

Sun: 6838
Mon: 6946
Tue: 5408
Wed: 8239
Thur: 14775
Fri: 3786
Sat: 9017

Total steps for the week: 55009 (Another New Record! Yay!)
Average daily steps = 7858. Yes!!!


Sun: 3.11 miles
Mon: 3.16 miles
Tue: 2.46 miles
Wed: 3.75 miles
Thur: 6.72 miles
Fri: 1.72 miles
Sat: 4.10 miles

Total mileage for week: 25.02 miles (Another New Record! Double Yay!!!)
Time to be brave and give myself a push to stay close to this level in future weeks. I'll up my minimum weekly target to 21 miles this week. That is a big jump, I know, but as I am consistently getting over a twenty mile week at the moment, I'd really like to try and stick with it, still keeping my step count minimum as my daily buffer, so that I'm not trying for 3 miles every single day just yet.

Total fitness minutes this week: 550, which is 79 minutes per day. Pleased!!!
Total calories burned: 2452 Nice! Maybe that will sort out the mac 'n'cheese and sausages I was daft enough to eat! LOL

emoticon emoticon emoticon
DOWN! By over two pounds! Yeehar! Now watch me put it back on next week! LOLOL
From 13 stone 5 lbs (187 lbs) to 13 stone 2 and 3/4 lbs (184.75 lbs)

My September weight goal is to see the scale drop below 13 stone this month, even if it is only for a day! LOL I'm being realistic here. My weight bounces around more than I do on Tigger! :-)

That was the week that was. :-)
Roll on next week!

    Congratulations on a fabulous week!! The thing of it is here, you are being as consistent as you can, and that is really, what the bottom line is all about, and that is why you have that wonderful loss!! A healthy lifestyle is about always giving it your best, and not worrying about those off days as we all have them.

52-Week Walking Plan Week 4, Day 1 etc.

Sunday, September 05, 2010

Today I did:

52-Week Walking Plan
Week 4, Day 1
15 minute walk

Pedometer Stats:
Pace: 21 min mile (I struggled to get the pace up today for some reason, most likely because Tue is very much on my mind atm)
Calories: 69
Steps: 1,727
Time: 0:16:03
Distance: 0.78 miles

This is the last week that I will have a 10 minute walk to do. From next week I will be walking a minimum of 15 minutes each time. I love how Mark Fenton increases your walking by only 5 or 10 minutes a week, so that you hardly feel the increase. I know I walk a fair bit more than just his walks, but as I do these ones first thing as part of my exercise routine, it is important to me that I enjoy it, and so far I have been getting a real kick out of it. :-)

28-Day Bootcamp Challenge
Week 4, Day 1
The last cardio session of the challenge, thank goodness! I have not enjoyed this video! I have loads of other cardio options available to me, that are much better fun, and therefore more motivating than this. Sorry Nicole, but give me Tigger, Roo and one of my dance DVDs any day over this. :-)

And talking of Tigger and Roo, I have trampolined and stepped my way to around 5000 steps while working through a Steps CD - you know the songs... 5678; Tragedy; Better the Devil You Know! etc. LOL Thanks to Tara's obsession with the group, we have four of their CDs now, mostly picked up for 50p at the local charity shop.

So a good dose of exercising, and now I have the rest of the day to Spark and do a few hours of crocheting. I am woefully short on work hours this week. Would that I could grow an extra pair of arms today! :-)

On to my week in review next, then I will have some fun catching up with you all and seeing how you're doing this weekend.
Have a great day everyone!

    Loved the trekkie stuff :)) I am not wanting to say how old I am, but lets just say I saw the Tribbles episode when it premiered on TV for the first time! It was thanks to Big Brother watching Star Trek that I got into it, law of restricted choice as he was four years older and bigger than me, but I fell in love with it right away!
As to exercise, you really have to go with what is fun for you or you won't be motivated to continue! Here is to having FUN working out!

52-Week Walking Plan Week 3, Day 7 etc.

Saturday, September 04, 2010

Today I did:

52-Week Walking Plan
Week 3, Day 7
25 minute walk

I am making the most of the pretty housing estate that I reach when the walk gets to this length. 12.5 minutes gets me into it with about 2.5 minutes to spare, so as there are some lovely cul de sacs and side roads that amble round to rejoin the main road through a little further down, I've decided to follow some of these roads for a change of scenery and to help me stay off the busy road at the other end of the estate for a few weeks longer. Today I made it a good distance into the first road before having to turn round at the halfway stage. Who knows, I may get to meet some nice new people there. :-)

Pedometer Stats:
Pace: 20 min mile
Calories: 117 (new record)
Steps: 2,923 (new record)
Time: 0:26:12
Distance: 1.31 miles (Tied with record set last week) That is called consistent. LOL.

My Land's End to John O'Groats walk is going well. I'm halfway between Exeter and Taunton currently. 159.3 miles in 56 days!

28-Day Bootcamp Challenge
Week 3, Day 7
Video 4
Core workout.

I will be keeping a good chunk of this video in the routine I plan to build up after I complete the bootcamp challenge because I am very weak on my core and this does the job while I'm standing up, which is great for me.

I have Bounced on Tigger and Stepped on Roo umpteen times today. I have 19 CDs to fit into my various exercise playlists, and I have worked through 4 and a half of them today! It has got me to well over 8000 steps! Yeehar! I just wish we had the appropriate emoticons. I have requested Trampoline and aerobic step emoticons and my request has been passed on, so you never know. I may be able to decorate my blog with them soon. *pretty please*
In the meantime...

Who remembers Toyah Wilcox? She of the Hair and the great songs like It's a Mystery, Thunder in the Mountains, I want to be Free, Good Morning Universe and Brave New World?

She is one of the artists whose album I've been working through today. Her song It's a Mystery always shoots me back to one particular memory...

I remember my Dad having to assist with supervising a disco at Truro School (he was a languages master and housemaster there). My poor Dad loathed pop music with a passion, and after he had called in every favour he had going to get out of it, and could avoid the horror no longer, he went under protest and armed. I was at the disco that night, a privilege we kids of teachers who lived at the school enjoyed, along with using the swimming pool and tennis courts. I was dancing with friends to Toyah's song when I personally witnessed Dad walk into the disco wearing ear muffs!

Some newer pupils at the school have heard the legend of my somewhat eccentric Dad, and heard this story but don't believe it happened. I swear on everything I hold dear, including my dearest departed Dad, that this really and truly happened! LOLOL

In honour of this memory, here is Toyah singing It's a Mystery:


See her hair? I had mine cut like that once. My Dad said it looked like I had a dustbin lid stuck on my head! LOLOL

I think one of the reasons I love music so much is that it often transports me back to memories from my past. Not always good ones I grant you, but it is still a great trip when you suddenly find yourself back in your teens, or mis-spent youth as my Dad would have called it. :-)

I hope you are all thinking of favourite songs from your teen years now. :-)

    I love it when a song brings me back - whether it's a year ago or 30. Jazz always makes me think of my dad. A couple years before we had to place him in a nursing home (he has Alzheimer's disease) I took him to a jazz concert, and I had more fun watching him get into the music - one of my favorite memories with him.

Highwoods Country Park - A great place for a walk! (Warning: Blog very picture heavy)

Saturday, September 04, 2010

In the spirit of the team challenges on Finding and Loving your Inner Tigger this is a blog with photos of my local favourite place to walk.

Living in Colchester, just off the Ipswich Road, we are very lucky to have Highwoods Country Park literally a 10 minute walk from our house.

To access it we walk through a nearby housing estate and under a railway tunnel:

The paths have recently been revamped to make access easier for bikers and the disabled. They have gone from this:

to this:

While we really enjoyed splashing, and sometimes wading our way through the tunnel and down the paths towards the lake, it is nice that my cycling friends are no longer risking life and limb on the mud and gravel. :-)

After a while the path gives way to fields:

We walk through to the next field:

and make our way to the lake:

before heading past this convenient log, suitable for sitting and watching the lake:

and entering the woods:

This path leads up to the car park and the little cafe and shop that is open during the summer season and at weekends the rest of the year:

After a stroll around the woodland area, we usually come back out to the field above the lake and walk round it, passing the little 'green lake' as we christened it:

and playing hide and seek:

and enjoying the company of my girls (taken the last time I had short hair):

Once we finish circling the lake, we sometimes walk down to Colchester Falls as we have nicknamed the dribble that leaves the lake:

Where the Three Wise Monkeys like to take a little breather before we complete the walk (Third wise monkey is adopted son and computer guru Adrian):

Finally, we head back the way we came, through the fields to the path:

Past some beautiful trees, like this one:

and back to the tunnel, um, Tara, wrong path dear!

"Mum! You know I like walking down these steps!"

And back through the tunnel again:

So that is Highwoods, and now that the summer is over and it will be a bit quieter, I can't wait to start walking up there again. I love autumn, watching the colour changes on the trees and, if it stays dry enough, plenty of leaves to kick and crunch our way through. :-)

Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour! :-)
