Today has been hardcore!
I woke up and played Pokemon Heart Gold for a little while, which I'm borrowing from my older son since he's beaten it a few times and has another Pokemon game now anyway. So far, it's fun!
Then I got on my running clothes and did my HILL RUN. I ran a mile to warm up, and then I ran up and walked down this hill in my subdivision five times. It actually wasn't too bad, probably because I've been running up that hill almost every time I run, without slowing down or stopping anyway. This time I just ran as fast as I could. Then I jogged home very slowly and stretched.
Then Airin and I stained and sealed the deck! The color doesn't look like it was supposed to because the wood was old and hadn't been taken care of, and there was still old stain on it. But it still looks A LOT better.
When it rained, I straightened up Avery's bedroom.
So... my butt is sore. Last night before bed I did some strength training with pilates on the floor to work out my legs. Then today I did hills, and then I was squatting, bending over, etc... staining the deck for 3 hours or so. Spark said that painting for 3 hours is 1020 calories, but I estimated it as more like 500 so I entered it as 1.5 hours of painting instead. It's not like I was getting winded or anything, geez.
Last night I came in under by ONE calorie. Today I'm going to stay within my range again, damn it!
