A good start...
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
Got a good start on 2013. Cooper and I walked 11.1 miles today. Well... I walked that far, but Cooper rode inside my coat for over 2 miles of that. I can tell I am getting stronger because it is easy for me to carry him these days. lol! I also did 290 jumping jacks (not all at once), 3 varieties of crunches on the ball, and a SP video for the Jumpstart Challenge. Not a bad way to spend the first day of the year. I also finished reading the book I started last night, and made a big pot of soup. Nothing earth shattering. Just a really nice day.
I have an appointment tomorrow, and I need to do some grocery shopping, so my afternoon is taken up with that, so I am not certain how many miles we will be able to fit in tomorrow. I might hop on the bike in the basement and crank out some miles. I wanted to go to the gym, but that won't be happening the way things look right now. I may have to wait until Friday. I guess I just need to keep my plans flexible. I have priorities, and no. 1 is getting the dog walked... everything else pretty much stays fluid.
I got my blood work done on Wednesday of last week, and it is still not right, so I have to go back on Monday or Tuesday and get it done again. Ugh! At least with the holidays I got a few extra days between trips to the lab due to offices being closed. I know it needs to get sorted out and monitored, but jeez louise, enough is enough!
I don't mind all the snow we have gotten. I just wish people would clear their sidewalks. There are patches that are rather icy and treacherous out there now. Cooper and I end up walking in the street fairly often, which doesn't feel safe to me, but I don't want to slip and fall on the ice and strain something, or worse yet break something. Ah well, only a few more months of this!
