Finally NOT sick! Yes!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Feels like that virus lasted forever but it was only a few days...'twas a bummer though since it was my last few days of vacation. But I've managed to persuade my assistant to cover for me for a couple more days, so things are not so bad!

I spent the day finishing filing my piles...well, very close to finishing...and working on final photo uploads to Flickr of my 2008 trip to the UK and France. Yes, it's two years now since I went...queen of procrastination here...

And it's hot here, so I put off walking...just did 1.44 miles outdoors and 1 Leslie mile indoors. I'd planned to do 2 Leslie miles but after the outdoors walk, my legs were really tired. So I stopped. At least I have begun to get back on track! It feels good.

emoticon emoticon for good wishes and thoughts!

    I often find that a little exercise does help when I'm feeling poorly although of course, the only thing I want to do is hit the couch. But once I'm started, I'm glad I did.
Good for you! emoticon emoticon

Sick...but I walked anyway...

Friday, August 06, 2010

By bedtime last night I was getting a mammoth cold. Slept only with aid of Tylenol Anti-Sinus (nighttime of course). 'Twas fullblown today. So no Leslie miles for me, I just don't have the energy. emoticon emoticon

I am pleased with myself for not overeating - I resisted the inner voice of my mother saying "stuff a cold, starve a fever" - and for getting a few things done in the house.

AND I just walked 1.44 miles - not very quickly, it's true, but I did them!
Hopefully tomorrow will be better! emoticon

    I didn't know the expression "stuff a cold, starve a fever"!
Good for you that you managed to walk on that day, and even better that the cold is gone!

Day 2, morning Leslie - well, almost morning!

Thursday, August 05, 2010

Ok, does this count? I did START my first Leslie mile in the AM!
Maybe my slow start had something to do with the 2 LS miles I did last night, around 8:30 PM...
At any rate, my blood was flowing so instead of doing just one mile, I did all three!
I always enjoy the abs mile & after doing that one, the fast mile is not so hard.
Sweat sweat sweat - & it's hot outside & warm in - but now I can cool off.
And feel virtuous...

OK, back to the regular AM Leslie mile...

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Leslie, why did I ever leave you? Well, I know why. Life got in the way one day, & then there are always excuses...
But there's no way to deny that one LS mile burns more calories than a regular mile walked in 15 minutes. emoticon

And I was doing so well until I lost it last night...with French roast ice cream...better than emoticon but still, not the best thing to eat at bedtime... emoticon

However, here is emoticon for the second time, ahem...
I really did enjoy doing this for a week, remember?

I want to make this part of my LIFESTYLE...ahooah!

Later in the PM:
Did the classic mile in AM, the arms & legs miles in PM. Love these miles that target areas. I'm getting good at lunges & squats! emoticon

    Thanks for this blog. I think I really need to get back to LS too, even though it is summer. She gets me moving a little faster. emoticon emoticon

Day 7 - whew! I think the digging is done for now...

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

I'm sooooo tired.
Began the day with Leslie mile focusing on legs - that included squats and lunges - NOT my favorite things but they were OK today which must mean I am getting stronger or more limber or something!
Then the big dig.
After several sessions - dirt is moved into my neighbor's yard. I weazeled the remainder to make a nice sloping surface so when the guys come tomorrow, they have an easier time planting the grass. Actually, I wasn't sure they'd prepare the ground very well...
So enough of that project.
Next week I will begin in my own yard, now that the new fences are up.
And tonight I'm going out to Red Lobster with friends but am already planning how to keep my calorie count reasonable. Thanks to sparkpeople for that handy guide to eating out!
Hope you all have had a happy day!

    Lobster! Yummy! I came back today and had a lovely steak with boiled potatoes and lettuce. That was yummy too! I see you've been keeping busy! Good for you emoticon
