My exercises are complete I just did cardio. I did do 70 minutes walking 4 miles with Leslie Sansonne -Power walk 4 miles video.
My steps are lower then I anticipated but I was walking on a yoga mat to keep the noise down. Not a smart move since the pedometer on the rug and Yoga mat do not always record the steps on the pedometer since rhe soft surface cushions the heel strike.
I am thinking I should buy a fit bit, knowing me I will not be able to use it. It sounds so complicated. I have looked at it often and the fact it will record sleep intrigues me. I will ponder on it some more. Maybe I should give myself a major incentive to finish my challenge and if I am happy with the results I will buy one for myself.
My pedometer says 9575 today. I have been very busy but getting up at 10 am was a big surprise. DH was up ahead of me and he struggled with his socks and ankle brace rather than awaken me. He is such a good guy for me.
This week a new member came up on a Spark message board and I knew she was in Maine looking for someone near by. I am not near by but I visit the community she lives in often since I go to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens as often as we can.
She mentioned she was going to participate in an art show at a local Greenhouse near my home. I had to pick up a prescription so I asked DH if it was OK to head out there. He said no problem we do have our cell phones.
I picked up the prescription and drove less than 10 miles to get to the Greenhouse. Someone left as I drove in so I had very few steps to walk to get inside. I walked through the exhibition and some artists had names on others did not. I searched and found her. She was not expecting me I looked across to be sure I recognized her face somewhat but I also saw her signature on one of her paintings.
I walked up to her and said hello.
She said I looked familiar have we met I said yes on our Spark Page. She let out a woo hoo and I did too and we had eyes on us but we did not care. We had a short chat and I looked at a small picture in a frame that had a butterfly painted so I bought it and then I had to leave. It was nice to meet her and surprise her and we will be communicating since she has just become a member at the gardens,.
When I got home I forgot to check the car mileage I was about to go out when DH said he would go.
He did not take his cane and we have 3 steps with no handrail so I watched as he walked down the steps. My heart was pounding and I wanted to go give him a hand but he was determined so I just had to wait and see.
He was in the driveway with a big smile and a THUMBS UP.
So another good day was accomplished for us.
Now its another late night but a happy one.
