Phew, good workout today!

Saturday, April 18, 2009

I got up in time to walk before it got hot, walked 2.5 miles in 52 minutes
did a 5 minute low impact step routine
40 minutes low impact & high impact Walk Away The Pounds video.
SparkPeople fitness tracker says I did too much today and this week on the amount of calories burned, that is a crock, I didn't do any exercising on Thursday and Friday. Guess I need to adjust my goal thing to keep them happy.

Today's SparkPeople Day at a Glance calendar page says:
Sunday begins National Volunteer Week. Volunterring has been shown to increase happiness, health and self-esteem. It's a win-win!
There is absoultely NO PLACE to volunteer here. They do NOT want help from Americans or Westerners.

37 more days!!! WOOOOO HOOOOO!

    I know what you mean about saying too many calories burned. They say I've done too much exercise. I still enter it anyhow. At least when you get home you can volunteer. Make up for the year. Sorry you can't exercise in the mall.

38 Days and counting!

Today's SparkPeople Day at a Glance calendar page:
Pace around. When on the phone, for example, get up and get moving around your home or office instead of sitting still. Talk about multitasking!
I do this when I am on the phone, I do pace around the house or I will load or unload the dishwasher, pick up stuff around the house.

I have been so lazy this weekend, outside of walking 1.5 miles in the malls and grocery stores on Thursday, not much else except for up and down in and out doing the laundry. I WILL do some sort of exercise tonight though. I have to.

DH bought me an aerobic step on Thursday when we were out, woo hoo! Now I need to try and find some free downloadable step videos until I get home and can buy them.

    I don't know if you have the same thing there that we do here. Here we go walking in the mall where its air conditioned. A lot of walkers go there early in the morning before it opens the stores. Its freedom to walk fast or slow. They walk from one end to the other. Maybe you could try something like that too.

YAY YAY YAY, I have reservations to go HOME TO THE USA on May 25 and wait list for May 28, WOO HOO~! It will be a direct, non-stop 13 hour flight with no alcohol. I will be home until the middle of October! I can't wait but it will be a long 2 1/2 months without DH.

I did a 3 mile Walk Away The Pounds video today. That was a workout, it was a higher intensity walk than what I have done.

It's the start of our weekend today to!

    I'm so glad you'll be coming here soon. I hope you have a wonderful time with your family. I'm back from surgery and the Dr. found a polyp. He'll let me know next week about it. I wish I could meet you but that's impossible. But with God all things are possible. Hope

Today is a good day!

Today's SparkPeople Day at a Glance Calendar page:
Swap whohle for white--grains that is. White flour, bread, rice and pasta are highly processed and low in nutrients. Whole grain varieties are packed with nutrients, fiber and filling power.

For the good parts
I re-connected with a long lost, sweet, dear friend today, one of the ladies that helped me through a painful crisis in my life in 98-99. It was so good to talk to her again, I thought she had long left this country but she's still here. We talked for 45 mintues and hope to be able to get together again before vacation next month.

And about vacation! WOO HOO, we are going down tonight to talk to the travel agent and get a ticket! YAY YAY YAY! I hope to be able to be HOME, IN NEW HAMPSHIRE by May 29th. If course my very first stop will have to be the DMV to renew my already expired driver's license that I wasn't able to do in October because their computers were down every single day for a week!

Wow, so all this will give me the extra energy to do another 3 mile walk away the pounds video and strength training today! YAY YAY YAY! It was only 89F at 8:30 this morning.

April 13

Monday, April 13, 2009

Hard to believe it's already April 13, almost 1/2 the month is gone.
I only had 1 tooth pulled on Sunday and the other one will be next Monday, after the follow up diabetes dr. It doesn't hurt and I was able to eat regular food for supper.

I did the 2 mile Heart Healthy or Healthy Heart video this afternoon then I started it over and did another mile, that was a good workout but I didn't want to try and push it with the hole in my mouth. It was 85F at 8:15 this morning so I didn't do my outside walk.
