Yesterday the temperature prediction was to be in the 80's - higher than usual for this time of year. With stucco exteriors, it's like being in a slow-bake oven as the sun beats down all day. As things got hotter in the house, I kept thinking that it's only March. Too early to turn on the a/c. Well, the temps hit 80 and my poor little cats turn into rag dolls at that temp. Then, 83 and rising made me head to the thermostat and turn on cooler air. Honestly, it hit about 84 and rather than have dead cats, and a tough time of it myself, I bit the bullet and decided it's never too early when it gets that hot.
I'd been doing the Sansone 30 day dvd where she alternates days walking and firming. By day 12, I really hated it. I don't do well with rigid schedules, got bored, and another unexpected factor occurred. I changed my dumb bell weights too soon. And for walking days, I used another of her dvd's with the toning band. I've always had a hard time with bands. There's something about the way they make my body move that produces very sore lower back muscles. Not in a good way, as though they are getting stronger. All that said, I've given myself a break with Sansone and done other things instead. When I continue with her again, I'll do various walks and not sure if I'll return to the firming sessions. If I do, I'll be prudent about dumb bell usage.
This morning we had an earthquake. It's nothing new here in SoCal, but I really have a feeling we are in for a big one soon. Just my gut feeling. So, I've begun wearing my daytime clothes to bed - just in case.
Okay, spark friends. Have a wonderful day.
