Day 408 - M

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

@ TATTER3 - Typically I do 120+ min. of cardio walking/hiking/day and then 3K - 5K more 'extra steps' and wind up with around 20K+ steps/day. It's broken up into at least 2 sessions, sometimes 3. I fit in the 120+ min. with any spare time I have. Always try to do the big hill too for the extra challenge...and it's really BIG and steep!! About 1/2 mi. nearly straight up.

Had a great day today...a little big draggy, but worked thru it. The snow/ice still isn't off the big hill yet, so the bus is parked down at the bottom. There's supposed to be a little more sun tomorrow, so that should help to melt it off. It's too icy to walk on it now too. They say we're getting rain on Thurs. so the temps are on the way up again!! Good news.

Got the cardio walking done, did some circuits in the woods and some of it in the house. Did a ST session tonight - core; lower body.

We're getting ready to cut the TV cable a bit later this month. Right now we have land line phone, TV & internet thru the cable company. We'll eliminate the land line & TV from it and will only be getting internet. Got a Roku to get some programming on the TV and Amazon Prime for movies. I think we can do this. It would be better to shut the darned thing off more too. I feel good about it, but know it will require some adjustment time. We'll use a VOIP service for the land line phone. Works out to about $7/mo. for the phone, which is a big improvement and reduction in cost. Just trying to cut some basic living expenses without giving it up entirely. There are also tons of free movies to rent from the Library. It would take years to see them all!!!

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope you had a great Tuesday and were able to get some workout time in. emoticon

    You are just amazing!! I have kids at home still only manage to get 1/3 of the steps you get done! LOL emoticon

    If you are like us, it warms up just enough to melt the snow on the hill, then re-freezes it so it's slicker than before. I almost couldn't get up our driveway yesterday afternoon because of the re-freezing.

    Have a great Wednesday!

    Oh we're in the process of making a decision to cut the cable too. And our library is very small, but there are still plenty of DVD's to choose from, and audio CD;s and so on. As long as I get my basic channels, I'm a happy camper (ABC, NBC and CBS).

    HUGS and good luck to you.

    Thanks for the info! I break my time up and often feel I'm slacking! I have the steep hill we'll see about the path as the warm weather returns. Have a great day!

    Keep a radio handy for news and weather and you
    should be set. Ask DH to give up cable? Not on your life!
