This is the start of a new week here, Saturday here is like Monday in the real world. Too bad I can't get my Spark calendar to start on my week, that would work out so much better for me.
Anyway a new week, more walking. At least the temps are going down so it will only be around 92 or so when I walk this afternoon.
I did get a new scale that weighs in kilos and lbs so at least I can read it. It still says 65 kilos and looks like it says 143 lbs. Still no change in inches around though.
DH wanted some of that cabbage soup so I made a HUGE pot. I can have that for lunches and before supper but I won't rely on that totaly for my food.
ONWARD AND UPWARD THIS WEEK! (Actually I'm hoping downward with the weight, LOLOL)
Saturday - 1.57 miles + stretching - 30 minutes
Sunday - 1.53 miles + stretching - 31 minutes - 143 lbs (AM weight) 148 BCG @ 9:15AM
Thank you everyone who stopped by to wish me a Happy Birthday and leave me a goodie! WOW, you all are a VERY supportive bunch and I truly appreciate it! Now I know why I spend more time on Spark People than I do on my Cross Stitch message boards!
I did my 1.58 miles yesterday in just over 33 minutes, did some jump rope but not alot since it hurts the girls to be jostled that much and I did some resistance band work outs.
So far today I've done .67 miles but it was too hot & humid to go further, I am going to do more resistance band workouts today IF I CAN GET ANY SPARK PAGES TO WORK!
I had another good walk today! I made it the 1.53 miles I had planned to and it was cooler than yesterday. So I guess I have to start walking around 4:30-4:45. Not as many stares today. I also did a little jumprope too but I am rather "well endowded" and it hurt. 10 minutes though is 10 minutes and it counts!
I made a GREAT meal for supper, boy was it good! All I did was grab the assortment of vegetables that were in the fridge, stir fry them up with about a tablespoon of mustard oil, added cumin, tumeric, curry powder and red pepper flakes (I LOVE it HOT) and mixed it up. I added about a 1/2 cup of brown rice that was left over and it was sooooooooo good! Better than your average chinese stir fry!
I did a walk today, 1.29 miles in 28 minutes, which was 2 circuits on the outer road of the compound It was 88F but a breeze. AFter I walked my blood glucose level was 123, woo hoo! Since I am just starting out in this country and with the heat & humidity I will take it slow and increase the rounds when I feel comfortable. I did get a few stares from the locals who live here. "What? A woman with her face hanging out? Walking? Why isn't she in the house sitting on the couch? What is this healthy lifestyle?" That is probably what they were thinking, I just kept on walking and ignoring everything but my iPod & my strides.
Yesterday my BP was 98/63 and all I was doing was sitting doing my cross stitch!
