Yesterday was a good day!
My new pedometer should be here today. Lost mine last weekend. It just slid off and is a good find for someone! This time there’ll be a second clip to hopefully keep it with me when it slides off my pocket. It always seems to slide off my pocket. Are you listening designers? Anyways, I’m a competitive enough person that just having the count will send me outside to walk a mile if I haven’t reached 10,000 steps. Great motivation!
Trying to vary my runs. Am almost to the point where joining a running group will be useful. Yesterday did some all-out running on the treadmill. Don’t usually use the incline, set that to 4 and the speed up from 4.5 to 5.5. Definitely need some work on my breathing, want more endurance. Will keep plugging.
Found a jump rope on sale at Dick’s the other day so adding jumping rope yesterday. The force of jumping created some mid-life mom trauma (maybe another post…) and will try it for a couple days to see if the muscles kick in. Love the jump rope. Feel like a kid again. Trying to change it up.
On Thursdays we’ve started heading down to the waterfront to walk a couple miles and enjoy the music at the Thursday in the Harbor concert series. Snuck a couple enjoyable miles in while enjoying the band. This week, we loved the headliner, Fitz & the Tantrum. To our ears, much better than the heavy metal lineup last week.
Well… We did OK. Ate out last night on the way to Thursday in the Harbor, a local summer concert series. Tried Moe’s Southwest Grill for the first time. As much as Porter really loved it, I was not so enamored. Chipotle Mexican Grill has ruined me for anything else in that genre. I love the restaurants. They’re usually spotless – especially the bathrooms. I love the organic, healthy ingredients. I love that my body feels good after eating there. Sorry I digress. Porter says Chipotle uses too much cilantro, which I love. Oh well. So we ate OK. A taco and some chips each. Bad choice of a sweet tea. Two steps forward, one back…
We had enough self control to skip the beer at the Harbour… so a good food day!
Am down half a pound to 157.5. That wouldn’t seem like such a coup EXCEPT that I’ve been steady at 158 for the past three days. Whoo Hoo!! Feeling pretty darn good!
