I've started working on my pushups every other day again. I'm not quite following the 100 pushups plan, though I'm leader of the "Hundreds" team :-) I'm just trying to get consistent again, like showing up.

Incense! It hides smells very well!

Hung some of the laundry instead of putting it in the dryer. Bend, stretch, bend, stretch - forgot what a workout it could be!

Yes, I'm thinking of doing a thorough house cleaning with DH gone for 4 days; I did just do half a bath (half a bath is better than none? LOL) as I didn't like some of the smells in there.

I have chores I can/want to do but I'm procrastinating so they're not getting done when I think about them but a few days later when I nag myself. I am doing better with daily stuff and paying attention to how well I'm sleeping versus what I'm eating and doing, appear to have lost a pound in the last couple weeks. I decided today to get a bit more serious about that and I think that will mean more activity.

Buy a used one off Craig's list or at a yard sale for a test drive!

Part of my motivation has been my husband. I didn't ride much during the winter (hate the cold!) and he kept griping about all the money spent on a nice bike. So, I ride it every chance (1) to shut him up and (2) so he won't give it away to one of his friends that admire it!

I wanted a bike a year or so ago :-) But I have nowhere to keep it at all and I'm not sure it wouldn't go the way of the wii and other things I've bought so I'm leery of spending that kind of money until I can show myself I really want it/would stick with it.

Still using the bike for trips to the grocery for one or two items. Love it! I can actually get to the store and back faster than with my car during high traffic times.

I'm working on getting outside for 40 minutes a day and doing at least 40 minutes of housework. I figure between the two I'll get a bit of activity in my day?

Yesterday we had emergency work replacing our hot water heater and I went to the grocery store and then the library. I've been working on my genealogy the last couple months and have a situation that I think would make a good romance novel :-) So, I went to the library and got a couple romance novels "like" my situation and will read for a few months and immerse myself in such stories and let "my" story gell some. I like having inspiration happening all around me like that when I'm working on something.

I'm going to design a couple of teeshirts too for my recent ideas on my health/weight loss/fitness. In addition, I've decided to start using my wii Fit to weigh myself instead of my bathroom scale. I can easily get in the habit of weighing myself daily with the bathroom scale and am hoping I can switch over the wii that easily and have the added more natural/like the doctor's office weigh-in as well as an opportunity to do a few exercises on the wii, since it will be on and "there".

Not extra activity, but something healthy -

I met a friend for lunch. Her schedule limits where she can go, so we ended up at a local barbecue place. Instead of a big plate of junk, I had collards, baked beans, and spiced apples.

Just got back from vacation at Panama City Beach. Hubbie complained that all I wanted to do was GO. No sitting on the beach for me!

Walked a lot, a bit of snorkeling, played in the water. Hopefully I was active enough not to do too much damage to myself from the food!

Decided to go shopping rather than watch TV (When I shop, I mostly walk because I am cheap and don't like to try on clothes).

Bathed the dogs outside instead of in the bathroom. The hound does not like baths, so I had to wrestle him during the process.

I'm starting to take breaks from online and walking around the circle/island out front of the house. It's 1/10th of a mile and a couple times around only takes 10 minutes at slow speed :-)

Took my son to lunch for his birthday. He picked me up from the office to go, but I walked the mile back.

I won't mention that I stopped at a bakery and picked up a fresh banana cupcake.

I went to the grocery store alone, could park where I want, walk whatever aisles I wanted :-) and had to carry all the stuff into the house and put away, etc.

Thursday I needed to drop something off to a friend. She only works a mile or so from my office so I walked it over instead of dropping it off by car.

Yesterday after successfully going to the amusement park,without rain, hahaha. My friend called and told me about a clearance sale ON a clearance sale. So my kids and I went and did many, many circles around and thru the store, so as not to miss anything.

My feet actually hurt today!

We all know that there are options for adding a few more steps or increasing calorie use during the day. How did you do it?

Today I washed the dishes by hand (but only because the dishwasher was broken) and I rode my bike to the store to pick up milk for breakfast.
