A slow day

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

I woke up with good intentions, got all prepared to go the distance today. Got my water, my iPod, my phone with a timer and walked out the door. I walked up to the corner, about a 30 second walk, turned the corner to do my laps when it hit me in the face. The humidity was bad again. It was 81F when Istarted my walk but it was very humid again. Some parts of the walk had a breeze and were ok but it was yucky so I only got 2 1/4 laps, 35 minutes or 1.27 miles. So I'll have to get going earlier or start my supper around 3 so I can walk around 4:15/4:30PM when the breeze is back or just suck it up and walk.
I didn't do the boot camp video again today but I DID figure out the stupid MP3 player thing. Now I just have to figure out why some songs skip or don't play.

    don't worry you'll get there. The humidity won't be there forever.

HAPPY 89TH BIRTHDAY DADDY!

Sunday, February 08, 2009

I may be 51 and my Dad may be 89 but I still call him Daddy, and today is his 88/89/90th birthday! He is not in the best of health so I know my Daddy won't be around a whole lot longer but he is still active but doesn't drive a whole lot anymore. My grandsons call him Dear, I am not really sure how that started but when my parents came to visit for a week when my grandson was about 3, he overheard my mother call him Dear a couple times and that just stuck with Tyler. So even now that Tyler is 9 years old he still calls his Great-Grandpa Dear and Dear gets the biggest kick out of that.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    cherish your Dad while you can. I lost mine to Cancer 20 years ago and even though he was only 73 when he died, I missed him so much. We had so much fun together before he left this world. Have fun and take as much time as you can to be with him because you won't regret the time you spend with him.

I had a good week

Saturday, February 07, 2009

A brand new week here so here is my weekly exercises:
I walked Sunday, Monday, tuesday, wednesday, Friday and today and I am pretty proud of that. I need to keep it up. I also did boot camp videos 5 & 6 to make up for not doing them on Thursday or Friday.

It rained last night, actually we had a 15 minute mini hurricane then more rain for 30 minutes. So that makes the 2nd day this year that it's rained which is about all we will get now until November. It stunk sooooooo bad when I walked and it was so humid. That 75F on the thermometer this morning lied, LOL it felt hotter than that. But then 1/4 of the walk is in full sun. I had to squeegee water off the patio, kind of like you would rake leaves or shovel snow. If you don't get rid of the standing water, a million bugs will come to life out there.

That's my day.

    emoticonon your walking. I think thats horrible that you only get rain twice a year. No wonder it stinks. If you go without rain for too long it doesn't make it feel fresh because of all the dirt and yucky stuff that builds up. So good on your boot camp others I know are deciding to join it too so you're farther ahead than them.

I did a 35 minute walk this morning, it was 81F and VERY humid but I did it. Have done 3 loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen and almost ready to start dinner since it will take longer.

    Laundry takes a lot of energy I should know. Carrying a load of laundry is strength building.

I can feel it!

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

Woo Hoo, I did the Boot camp Day 4 Abs workout and I feel it! I really like day 4.
I did my morning walk, 42 minutes, 2 miles. IT was 82F at 10AM, overcast and cloudy but I DID wear sunscreen. I also jogged again for a very short distance, and did some jump ropeing, a little bit more each time. I can feel myself building up my cardio endurance. YIPEE!
Still trying to keep up with the 8 cups of water a day, it's not easy.

    Try adding a little lemon juice to the water no sugar. It may help you.
