A good shopping day

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Wow, for a change I found what I needed for a project I want to start! I can't say much about it yet since I am not sure how I want to go about it but I will definately post at a later date.

Today is my day off from exercise but I did do some brisk walking in the mall and the grocery store today and we took the stairs instead of the esclator.

Tried to call my son again today and he didn't answer his phone again, I'm starting to get very concerned now. I have no other way to get in touch with him.

    I'm sure everything is OK with your son. He probably has a good excuse. Perhaps you could call his wife if he has one or a neighbor or his job to see if he's been in. Perhaps tomorrow after church. Good Luck with getting in touch with him.

End of the week burnout update

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

I did finally make it upstairs for a short workout, 30 minutes of Walk Away The Pounds Fat burning walk, a 20 minute resistance band workout and 10 minutes more of crunches and bridges on the stability ball. I had to finish in time to watch House on tv, LOL.

On to the weekend now.

    That's a good workout, Robin. There's many days I don't get that much in.

End of the week burnout

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

For me, it's the end of the week. Our Wednesday here is like Friday in the real world. I am on my end of the week exercise burnout. I usually take a day off from exercise to let my legs and muscles rest on either a Thursday or Friday but today I just can't find the motivation to do it. I did go for a brief 30 minute walk this morning outside but it was only 1.68 miles in 30 minutes and I know that is not enough exercise for today. I did find out though why I needed new sneekers, the ones I was using to walk in hurt my feet and legs. I made the mistake of wearing them again this morning and not 1/2 lap into my walk, my legs hurt.

Plus I'm trying to get a Christmas present organized for my DH. I took assorted pictures of his Harley before I left home and I want to make him a 2010 calendar and use those pictures. I took like a picture of the license plate, the motor, the back wheel, the side of the gas take with the Harley emblem, pictures like that and now I'm trying to decide how to make the calendar or if I want to go to the store, buy a calendar and glue the printed pictures over the picture already there.

Oh well, guess it's time to drag myself upstairs and move a bit.

    What a great idea for a Christmas present! My Father in law is a big Harley fan and would love something like that! You know that you can go online and load those pics in and have a calendar printed (snapfish, shutterfly, walmart I think). Great idea! Best of luck to you!

It happened

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I started out with a 2.6 mile walk outside in 53 minutes this morning. It would have been a nice cool walk the whole while except they chopped down all the shady trees on the roads so my walk is almost in full sun.

Then Christmas puked in the house. Not all over mind you but there's bits around. There are only 1 or 2 people who are reading this that know why I don't like Christmas, it's personal and painful, end of story. The god-awful tree thing isn't up yet, another week. DH has a "winter themed" screen saver thing on his computer and he turned on internet Christmas music that blasted me out of bed at 6:10 this morning so I figured if he was spirited enough, I'd put a little Christmas crap.

    I have very painful memories of Christmas when I was 19 and I felt so bad about not telling anyone. It consumed me and then I found forgiveness and it turned out that by giving I was far happier and could enjoy life more and forget what had happened to me. God gave us the ability to forgive and forget. To give is better than to receive. Give to your husband and know you make him happy. I too will pray for you and pray the most will be over soon.

    I'm sorry that Christmas is painful for you. You don't have to tell me a thing about that if you don't want to, I'll keep on praying for you anyway. Take good care of yourself and just hang on because it will be over pretty soon. emoticon

    We do not like christmas either.(very painful) But we force ourselves to do a bit of decorating for the grown kids when they visit. Try to make the best of it. Good luck on your journey.

Another walk

Monday, December 14, 2009

I pushed myself to do another walk with a short jog this morning and yes it felt good again.
To the person who said I should not push myself, YES I SHOULD. YOU DON'T KNOW ME, if I don't push myself, it won't get done and I only have a 3 1/2 month period of time I can do this walk outside before the temperature gets too high to think about it. It will get easier for me.
I then did only 30 minutes of Leslie WATP and 30 minutes strength training.
