...eventually it will be my, excuse me, OUR exercise area.
However, I do have a little bitty bit of work to do before that happens. This is what it looks like right now, Saturday, Feb. 7, 2009:
Isn't that a lovely piece of machinery? I can tell already that I'm really going to get a lot of use out of it.
...but not if I don't get my act together and get it set up. Well, next week will be less hectic. And I will be here alone, since Thomas is leaving for Florida tomorrow. He will be gone a month. As I've said elsewhere, it totally totally sucks. Makes me want to say dirty words and work horrific, torturous, violence on my ex. But I digress...
Today I walked for 15 minutes and did the variation in speed that Bunny talked about in her post. I've not done much walking this past week, but the last two times I did walk I did the variation thing. Today I didn't get up much speed because I was already tired. But after my walk I did 45 minutes of exercises, concentrating on abs and arms with some nice long stretches too. Felt good.
Sugar was not too bad this morning, 183. Not good, but not terrible. Then my after meal number was 228, I think. That is NOT good. I would like to get to a place where I don't ever get over 200. I need to work on that harder, don't I?
Anyway, we went out for a drive today and looked at some houses that I had been looking at online. I think we have found our place, but still need to go inside it and get a good feeling for it. On the way home we picked up Chinese takeout. I had mu shu chicken, which is essentially chicken with cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts, mushrooms, other veggies, which you wrap in thin rice pancakes and serve with plum sauce. I went light on the sauce and only ate two pancakes.
I felt good today. It felt good to just spend time with my fellas and have a pleasant, relaxing day. It was enjoyable to the max. It was a nice day, temperature in the 70's, light breeze, lots of sunshine. Lovely day for an outing.
