My Mom-in-law arrived today about 3 pm. We were expecting her and I'm blessed to have a great relationship with her. She will be here until Saturday.
We went to church this morning and that was lovely as usual. I love being a UU, it just fits me so very well. I find a great comfort just being in such a loving and accepting place.
I got on the treadmill for 35 minutes, that includes about 8.5 minutes jogged of my time, which is about half a mile. My goal is to increase the jogging to half of my usual 2 miles (15ish minutes). I also did about 10 minutes of freeweight work while on the treadmill.
I also did 20 minutes of strength/core work with free weights after my treadmill time. I'm really needing to work on my core a lot. There are some things I can do easily and some that make me cry... like plank exercises and crunches.
I am actually getting some definition in my arms, which is very strange to me.
I am still wondering what happened to the couch potato I used to be. Today was the 17th day in a row that I have done cardio exercises. My first goal is 30 days and then I will keep adding to see how high I can get.
I love goal setting!
Need to get a shower before bed. My salad for tomorrow's lunch is already made, so I just need to gather and go in the morning.
Blue Man Group was amazing last night... fun, interactive, and some really GREAT music too. I loved it. So many thanks go out to my friends for gifting me with that ticket!
Also got to see my niece Bethany play violin for state competition yesterday morning for the best possible rating... she is truly amazing. My son (who plays cello) was there too and he wants to see himself there in a few years' time.
It was a GREAT weekend, but now I need a day of rest...
Weigh in tomorrow! I am half looking forward to it and half dreading it!
