A short walk along the SA River

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Today I took a walk with my walking buddy Irene along the river. Because we were both short on time we did a shorter walk but it stilled turned out to be 8.21 miles round trip. I even jogged a bit. Irene is a jogger/runner but had hurt her knee so was stuck walking until the doctor told her she could start jogging again. We did a few short bursts jogging but like I said I am not a runner or jogger so I did little bits and then would walk real fast.
Came home and went to the market to get grocery money from the ATM for the week. Picked up some shrimp and scallops along with frozen Italian veggies and a premade salad for dinner. The guys enjoyed it and so did I.
Took Phred out for only 1 walk today and didn't feel up to my JM "Shred" dvd after doing all those miles but will do it tomorrow without fail!

Trying to work out more again

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

I am feeling pretty good after being sick most of Feb and March so I am gonna ramp up my exercising again. I didn't lose any weight in the last 2 weeks but I didn't gain any either. I have lost 30 pounds since 11/08/09. I gave myself 13 months to hopefully lose 60-65 pounds. This is first time I have not lost any weight on my slow goes the turtle idea. Everyone hits plateaus I guess. I will just keeping working out and know in time I will start to lose again.
I took Phred out for 2 walks today, did the "Fast 4 mile Leslie Sansone" dvd and the "Shred" also. I am planning on hitting the gym tomorrow.
I need to go through the "Shred" dvd so I count the strength exercises and get the correct names. I mean I do "Squats with arm curls" and stuff so those should be counted as other exercises. emoticon emoticon

    Keep it up. I know it can be frustrating when the scale doesn't reflect our hard work.

Rainy & cold morning

Monday, April 12, 2010

I got up this morning and waited about an hr. to take Phred for his morning walk. Of course it was raining again by then but I couldn't be sure that it wouldn't rain all day. It only rained until around noon.
I was a bit tired out from the party yesterday and decided I would watch some soaps (ABC) and go through my coupons, separate the ones for my daughter (I send them to her) and get rid of the ones I really am not going to use. I also cut out the ones that came in yesterdays paper.
After lunch I just sat back and continued to watch all 3 ABC soaps. I did do my "Shred" dvd at 3pm, took a shower, dried my hair and took the dog out for his afternoon walk. Came home and Jeff was taking his nap after work. Our friend Tim was maybe suppose to show for dinner but got called to Las Vegas. At 6pm I woke Jeff saying that Frank and I were hungry. We went to the local IHOP where I had their new 'For Me" healthy menu item "Whole Wheat French Toast" with banana on top, egg sub scrambled, 2 turkey bacon and fruit that had cantaloupe and red grapes. I drank water. It was very tasty! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Corvette Party Day

Sunday, April 11, 2010

We hosted a party for some of our Corvette friends from the various clubs that we belong to. Mostly it was for the guys to check out each others cars and work along side my husband who does a lot of work on these cars including my 81'.
I got up around 8am and made a fruit salad and left for the gym sometime after 9am. Did a 50 min elliptical workout, figuring it was better than not getting any exercise today. Only 2 of the guys brought their wives, Marlene who I have known for a number of years and Sally who I just met today. We all go along rather well, us ladies had some fun too. The only bad thing was the weather really sucked. It looked like rain all day and we only saw sunshine for about 30 mins., it never got above 65 degrees.
WE BBQed bwt 1-2pm and everything turned out good. We provided the hamburgers, buns, fruit salad and cookies. Marlene brought her famous Spinach dip, which is outstanding. And there were chips and some other types of goodies.
I took Phred for a walk around 4pm and it was rather chilly. Phred was psycho dog most of the day if we left him inside the house so we let him out front on and off so he could visit. But if anyone came in the house to use the restroom he was a real terror, barking and growling. The people finally just ignored him.
We are all pretty tired after all that today but it is fun to have get-to-gathers
with people you like and have things in common with. Ta ta for now.

    Oh man, KC had better weather? How did that happen?

My stepdad used to be involved in a car club and I would go to some of their get-togethers. I don't know doodley-squat about cars, but was still kinda fun.

Glad you had a good day! :)

Nothing too exciting today

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Pretty normal day today/ Getting ready for the Corvette club party here tomorrow. So went to the market, walked the dog 2 times and cleaned the house. Tim is here visiting from MO. and he was around all day and I cooked dinner. He travels allot so I know he appreciated a home cooked meal. Pork Loin, corn on the cob, steam carrots and bake potatoes. He had to drive back to his motel in some little town out in the desert but will be back tomorrow for the party. Going to get early and go to the gym.
