10 pounds at a time!
Monday, August 4
My workouts went pretty good today. I was supposed to do two 30 minute walks outside today, however it was threatening rain. So instead of doing my outdoors walking I did a Leslie Sansone "Walk at Home" video. She is annoying, but she works my butt off for 45 minute intervals. I did a "3" mile walk today and my heart rate was almost as high as when I am jogging outside. I don't really understand why because jogging takes more out of me, but I can sustain the higher levels of heart rate longer with the "walk" videos. This is still a last minute resort but it is working out to be a good alternative as well.
As for my strength training, today was lower body day. I decided to cut that down to just 15 minutes instead of 30 like I had planned because I really don't want to burn out. I want to be able to keep this up for the long haul. As the MizFit's are saying "Consistency is the key".
Also I have decide to do the bracelet thing to remind me to drink all of my 10 glasses of water (because I sweat like a pig and need the extra hydration). I have a bunch of really cute rubber bracelets in pink and black that don't match anything I own anymore because I have not worn them in ten years. They will work perfectly, and when people ask about them, (which I am sure they will) I can explain the theory and pass it on. Just one more thing on my list. *sigh*
Whit and I are not doing the push ups till after I get home from class tonight. The reason for this is that is often the only time we spend together these days and this is a "we" thing. Therefore I will post how we did tomorrow.
P.S. I was struggling to figure out why my mouse was not working, I was moving it but to no avail. Then I realized that my cell phone and mouse where sitting side by side and it was not the mouse that I was holding.
Sometimes I am so blonde!
