I am REALLY tired of the Wind!! I know that I am lucky that I don't have the low temperatures that some of you do, or the Snow and Ice. I do feel bad for those of you who are having to deal with that.
It was almost 70 degrees here today, but because it was so windy, after work I decided to go to the Gym and ride the Recumbent Bike rather than fight the wind again. I got in 7.29 miles in 40 minutes.
Gary had to work late, and when I got home, it was still daylight. So, I could not resist a quick 20 minute walk. Well, like my SparkFriend 2Kitties reminded me, at least the wind adds Strength Training to my Walks, LOL!!
When Gary got home, he had time to eat Dinner and then it was time to walk to 7-11. I think we were both kind of glad to make it a short walk tonight. And, to add insult to injury, they were out of Pears at the store!!! GRRR!!!!

It is Funny how much I look forward to my Sunday Morning walks. It is hard to believe that I really do walk just because I enjoy it. Maybe something has changed in my DNA? I walked to 7-11 this morning to get Coffee before Church. I really think that I would walk even if the Coffee wasn't involved.
Gary had gone Golfing, and I really planned on a Long Walk at the Park because the temperature was to be in the 60s today. Only problem was that the wind was blowing at almost 30 mph, making it seem A LOT colder than it really was. Plus it isn't any fun walking in it. We should get extra Spark Points or an Extra Calorie burn when the wind is that bad. I only walked 25 minutes in the Park, then decided that it would be Much More FUN to get my Nails done. So....Off to Wal-Mart I went!!
I got home in time to see most of an episode of "Tanked" on Animal Planet. If you aren't familiar with it, the program is about a Family in Las Vegas that builds custom Aquariums. They are beyond anything I could imagine, and I don't even want to think about what one would cost just to maintain. I haven't watched it a lot, but I have enjoyed the episodes I have seen. On the episode today they were in New York to build an aquarium for a Child. While they were there they got to go on a Shark Dive. They were in a Steel Cage surrounded by Full Grown Sharks!! I SO want to do that!! It is the Number One thing on my Bucket List!! I have No Idea why, but I think it would be FABULOUS!!
After Dinner, in spite of the wind, we walked to 7-11--a little over 2 miles. That gave me a total of 10, 997 steps with my Walks. I didn't quite make my Goal of 500 Calories Burned today, but it is a "Rest Day" so I am OK with that.
Thank You to all of you who are reading my Blogs and taking the time to Comment. I appreciate all of you more than you can know.

Started the day with Breakfast at my FAVORITE Breakfast place,Jimmy's Egg. Ran into some friends there and had a nice visit with them.
By the time we got home it had started to warm up pretty good (54 degrees) so I walked over to Curves. Burned 384 calories on the machines plus 137 on the 2 mile walk getting there and back. On the way home I found a cell phone laying in the ditch. Ironically it was very near the same area where I lost a cell phone last year! It says AT&T on the case, but the battery is DEAD, and there is no SIM Card in it. I had planned on taking it to the AT&T Store here in town but I don't know if they could identify the Owner without a SIM Card.
After lunch I went to the Nursing Home to visit Claudine. She was feeling tired today, and with it being so windy we decided not to go out for a drive. Claudine taught knitting for many years and one of her students was my friend Genie. Last week Genie gave me a roll of yarn and some needles to take to Claudine to see if she could still knit. I think she sort of remembered, but with her poor vision and depth perception she couldn't quite 'Get It'. I did discover that I remembered more about knitting than I thought I would. It has been 30 years or more since I knitted.
Gary and I had Dinner at my Favorite Italian place. Not sure how "Healthy" it was, but it WAS Delicious.
This evening, we walked to 7-11 for Coffee and Snacks. I was relieved that they had a new shipment of Pears. They have been out of them for the past few days,and they have the BEST Pears in town. I also got a banana for Breakfast in the morning.

I keep telling myself that Fridays are Fabulous, and they are Payday which is Good. And they are the beginning of the weekend which is good, and Gary got home today after working in Sand Springs Oklahoma for a week, so that is GOOD!!
But on the Other Hand, Fridays are a LONG Day at work with No Computer access. And my Evening Job has almost ZERO opportunity for Exercise. My best chance is to get off work on my Day Job early enough to Zip by the Park or the Gym for 20 or 30 minutes before I have to be at the Evening Job.
I worked out at Curves this morning, then walked to 7-11 for Coffee. While I was at my Day Job, I managed to get 1.37 miles in by pacing the Living Room and Marching in place.
My Steps Count will be Low today but that is because I don't wear my pedometer on the Elliptical because they don't talk nice to each other. Besides the 2.32 miles on the Elliptical, I walked a little over 5 miles today.
