Feb 4th-Day 36 of 10min of exercise per day

As I'm sitting here watch it snow, I thought I'd post about my last two days which have been very active.

Superbowl Sunday: I had to work on Sunday, but it was a little slow. I didn't have a tech, so I worked alone and had a chance to do two Spark Videos at work. I did the low impact cardio one and one of the kick boxing ones. When I got home, Hubby wanted to go for a walk. I jumped all over that opportunity, although the roads were still a little icey in patches from a recent snow. Because of that, we only went one mile. It was nice to be out in the sun even though it was a little chilly. After that was the Super Bowl. I played the Super Bowl exercise game posted on Spark People. Two of my kids kind of did it along with me. I new I was in trouble when the game started off with a safety and 20 push-ups. I did the modified kind, and had to sub some regular crunches for burpees. My body still hurts from all the bicycle crunches and modified push ups.

Monday: My oldest daughter, Mary, got her braces off. This required two orthodontist appointments throughout the day, so we stayed in Omaha the whole day shopping! It's been a while since I went shopping only with Mary. We had a blast! I brought my lunch, but we ate out for dinner at Johnny's Steakhouse at Village Pointe. I haven't eaten there since my 40th birthday (I'm 45). It was fantastic and I stuck to my plan. I had a 6 oz fillet, salad with vinegar, and asparagus. The fillet had demi-glaze and the asparagus had some olive oil or butter on it, but other than that I was perfect. During Mary's first appointment (2hours), I went to a mall and walked for 33 minutes before starting to shop. We hit that mall two more times and then out to Village Pointe to finish. I had to go to Scheele's to get some new Asics. They have some wides out there. When I logged into SparkPeople later, my activity tracker tracked over 14,000 steps and 6 miles. Wow! That's a lot of shopping!

I haven't gotten to my exercise yet today. I think I'll Zumba to try to loosen up my sore muscles. I bet Sean will want to Zumba with me, and I just got the calls that school is letting out early due to snow. Good! I'll have all my helpers here to help with the laundry!
