Exercise, home and weather.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Ok been really trying to get into the gym at least 3 times a week. Went last Wed., Sat. and today. Started doing a weight routine again last Wed. and did the same workout again today. I plan to up the poundage a little bit at a time. Currently just doing #15, will go up to 20# after 6 or 8 sessions. I don't want to burn out too fast and just really taking it easy. Cardio is going well, I mix it up bwt the treadmill, elliptical and bikes. They have another type of elliptical, 750A like a stair stepper/gazelle, that I no longer try to use. I would have terrible pain in my hips after using and suffer leg cramps, so I don't use it anymore. I just wish they had a regular stair stepper like they had at both 24Hrs and Ballys.
Jeff goes back to work on Monday, so we are trying to finish up the bedrooms (sanding, prep, painting and putting up new ceiling fixtures) before the guys come to put in the new flooring next week. I picked a very pretty color called Peony from the Martha Stewart color collection, although we are using Bear paint from Home Depot. They can color match anything.
I had a Mammogram on Monday the 12th, still waiting to get a letter. Normally get one in just a few days, so mail must be slow. I am sure all is fine.
Weather had been hot everyday for a few weeks over 90+. Running A/C 24/7 but bill should be lower than last year when half of the house was expose to the elements due to home remodeling.

    I love changing rooms up but it does get expensive, doesn't it? We just painted my parents' room and my mom picked and Amethyst color... it looks like the "calm room" in our jail!

And I am sure the mammogram is fine... otherwise they would have called you. At least I hope they would have.

And congratulations on getting your workouts in. I was sick for a month and an just now getting back up to speed after 3 weeks of working on it! I swear I don't want to get sick any time soon, even thought I lost 6 pounds in a week. But when I had to stop working out, I gained 14 pounds in 3 weeks! I have 10 of those 14 gone and I am elated because they DO NOT belong on my body.

    Hi Teri, that's awesome you are getting some workouts in considering you are still into the renos!
Seems like everyone has that heat! Not me, its going into the 50's every night and high in the low 70's, no A/C needed here :P
Wishing good results from your mammogram, that is slow mail, or maybe they are backlogged analyzing results.
Hope the temperatures ease up soon for you!

    Hi, Teri! Workouts sound great! Glad you got to go to the gym. How exciting that now, you are doing the bedrooms! The color sounds really pretty. I know, we get our paint at Home Depot too! Just have them match a sample and they do a great job.

Take care of you, glad to hear that you got your mammogram. How is Phred doing? emoticon emoticon

    It sounds like you are getting plenty of cardio at home with the sanding and painting:)D Our temps are up in the 90's with high humidity right now. They are saying a break is coming in the form of storms on Thurs. night. Hoping to at least drop the humidity. We have an International soccer tournament in the northern suburb and it is always a very hot & humid week. This yr. is the 29th yr. Over 100 countries represented. Some like it hot and some like it cooler!
Take care in your heat and stay hydrated!!
