I Walked and Walked

I was in sunny Florida for 2 1/2 weeks and just got back 1 week ago! When you are at the beach life is good. I got in the habit of walking every day. Well at least almost every day.....for a total of 52 miles! We didn't have much of a summer here so I was lucky enough to be able to go where summer was. Here is a picture of my little walking buddy!

A Sunny Day

Here it is 10:35 AM today and I shoveled the double driveway and all the sidewalks we are on the corner so there are actually double the sidewalks.....When finished no huffing and puffing or being out of breath. What does that mean I heard a personal trainer say the recovery time from an exercise shows how out of shape you really are. Makes sense....No recovery time I must be in pretty good shape. So It might be time to step it up a bit! Got on the scale again and was down about 2 1/2 lbs. So thought I would try on a pair of jeans that have not been worn in a while....YAY they fit!

Finished my set of 15 each for all the exercises I do on the weight machine...about 10 of them so I am so ready to go at lunchtime and pick up my new elliptical machine. Then off to get my tires taken care of.

It certainly helps to see the sunshine! Puts everyone into a better mood. YAY for sunshine!

Didn't get over to pick up the machine so will do it and meet hubby there when he gets out of work.....They swapped out the had a tiny pinhole in it!

Picked up the machine and I used it for 1 minute and it wiped me out! I can see that this is going to be a lot of work! My plan is to get on it for as long as I can at every opportunity during the day and then increase the time I'm on it. My thinking is that it will get easier as time goes on. That is my plan will it work ? We'll see!

My New Piece Of Equipment

I did It I bought a elliptical machine so I am going to pick it up when the truck bed can be uncovered..... hopefully tomorrow! I am so excited and I really need to get into the exercising mode!!!!! I'll do my weight exercise tomorrow morning, then go get my tire fixed again for the 2nd time.... brand new tires only 2 months old...hopefully they will replace it this time! And maybe pick up my machine later in the day. YAY

apparently you can not post a comment on this one have to go to the 1st blog I don't get this.....

January 2009

Yesterday I started my weightlifting program and I was so glad that I finally did. I need to lose at least 45 lbs and that would make me VERY very happy. Today now I did my weight machine exercises again and am looking forward to getting an elliptical machine sometime soon. I figure if I do my exercises then maybe by springtime I will be in shape and really look good for bathing suit time.! Time will tell and in this blog I am open to comment and suggestions and figure that I would share the experience with you and would like you to share yours with me. thanks!
