Woo Hoo!!! Yankess win the American League Championship so now it's on toe the World Series! I got up at 5:30 and watched from the 6th inning on. Of course the satellite feed died in the bottom of the 8th inning so I had to go to the MLB TV feed.

The clothes dryer is fixed now so I need to catch up on the laundry.

Thank you to all my spark friends for leaving me the birthday messages and birthday goodies! They are appreciated more than you know. Nothing much happened for my birthday, DH took me out for dinner to our favorite Turkish restaurant and that was about it, but then I wasn't expecting anything since I got a new car in June. There isn't much I really want, well ok, a new electric treadmill would be really super great but my new car is better even though I can't drive it now until June.

Thanks again my dear SparkFriends!

On another note, I did my exercises yesterday. I did the Starter Kit workout, both the ball routine and the resistence band workout and I am sore today! I must have pulled too far on something because my back hurts. I'll just do the cardio workout today then.

    I would take it a bit easy! I started doing Turbo Jam, and my back was sore the first few days, but it was because I never worked those muscles much before. Some soreness is good, but you if you think you pushed too far deff take it easy!

You are doing great!

    Yes take it easy and its too bad you can't drive your car til June. Is that when you come back to the states again? Did you get the spark book? I heard the goodies in the sparkpeople store were charging a lot to ship the prizes out of the country. More than it was worth. I'm going to order the basic equipment for $25.00.

I got a very nice message from SparkPeople today for my birthday.

DH is taking me out to our favorite Turkish restaurant tonight for dinner and I will eat carefully.
I did manage to get in some exercise yesterday too and I felt so much better. More today as well!

My treadmill

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

My treadmill is the old fashioned kind, it's manual. You don't push a button to make it go, your foot power makes it go. It's on an incline too so I have to get something to make it level, I do NOT like walking on an incline. It's simple and basic, it doesn't have any fancy display panel, just digital numbers for calories burned, milage, walking speed, time you've been making it move and pulse except the pulse rate thing doesn't work, and a lopsided cup holder that doesn't hold much. I thought I would love it and would walk all the time, I am now not fond of it after using the fancy electric ones at the gym, but you get what you can afford. It takes a lot to move it and you have to hang on to the handle bars to keep it moving. After I've been walking on it for only 2 minutes my calves hurt and my ankles hurt, I suppose that means it's working but I get leg cramps. I'll just do the best I can, at least it's something when it gets too hot or humid to be outside.

    "At least it's something" .. I feel that way about my stationary bike. I am not fond of the gym - I prefer to workout outdoors. But the gym equipment is way better than anything I could afford at home.

    My treadmill is a bit newer than yours, but not by much! I like it, although, my times on it aren't great. About 10 minutes at a time is all I can manage right now!

    I thought about getting a manual treadmill. The last "electronic" one I had died rather quickly, so I didn't come close to getting my moneys worth out of it...so hubby says no!
But everything I've read on them say that they can be tough on your knees and hips because of the effort it takes to get it started.
I feel the same way about my old nordic track ski machine that you do about your treadmill. It's there if I have absolutely nothing better to do, lol. But hey, I picked it up for nothing on Craigslist, so I guess I'm getting my money's worth there emoticon

Day 3 back in the magic Kingdom

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Got the suitcases emptied and put away for next year. Got my new cross stitch stash organized and entered into my main database and put away and now I want to stitch! I'm excited because I haven't wanted to stitch since May.

I got my exercise room organized and arranged today but I still can't manage more than 10 minutes on my treadmill. This treadmill is an "old fashioned" manual one, not electric and it's on an incline which I do not like so I need to find some way to make the walking tread level.

It's warm outside but not blazing hot.

WOO HOOOOO the Yankees won in a great game last night! They now lead the playoff games 2-0 and they're off to LA for 3 games.

How many more days until June 5?

    I was going to suggest some boards or bricks to make the back end level. Enjoy doing your cross stitch.

    229 try some boards under the low end. Make sure the cover enough so the tread mill doesn't slip. emoticon
