I went to see Magic Mike over the weekend and Alex Pettyfer, lovely face, not a great stripper body. Channing Tatum is perfect and can move his body like water ripples. Beautiful men, sigh… 🙂 Anyway, so today I tried to walk on the treadmill, but again it quit on me, so I had to go back out and walk in the field.
I walked 1.39 miles and burned 189 calories. I would have walked more, but it was almost 90 degrees and I was starting to feel faint and see vivid color again, so stopping was needed. I want to push myself harder tomorrow if i can get the damn treadmill to work.
I went swimming recreationally today instead of walking. I spent two hours in the water. According to Weight Watchers I earned 14 activity points, my quota for the week. I had no sunscreen on so my face freckles got some exposure. My eating today was pretty good. I managed to sty within points.
I popped a blister on my left heel yesterday. I walked for only 25 minutes today because my heel hurt so bad. Tomorrow I’m going in flip flops. Nana always walked in crocks, I think I can handle flippy-floppys. I walked 1.26 miles and burned 172 calories. On Saturday I’m going to clean off the porch in the shade and put the treadmill on it. I hope that doesn’t effect the inner thigh muscle strengthening that happens when walking through the field. I got my new phone yesterday. I’m not sure I care for it, but it’s better than my little flip phone.
I woke up at noon after Skyping ’til 3a with my sweet. Which was good because I don’t need to sleep all day. Now I’m lounging on my bed in front of my fan, cooling off. I walked 1.69 miles, which took me 36 minutes and 22 seconds; calories burned 229. I could have pushed myself to walk that last .31 mile, but I was starting to see colors strangely so I figured it was time to quit for the day. I want to be able to walk a mile in 15 minutes. I did it in 22 today, not good. I need to shave six minutes off of that before I can even think about running or walking a marathon. I’m also considering going to Ludington Fitness two to three times a week. We’ll see how that fits with my schedule. This is all dependent on my ability to wake up earlier.
This will be $60 a month. BOOT CAMP & ZUMBA Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 9:00 am to 10:00 am.
I think it would be a good thing because I could hand out AVON books after. I need to find a new place to live too.
Some family tragedies have occurred in the last few months…so this is me getting back on track. I bought a treadmill from a friend, tried to use it today and it died, lol. So I went out back to the circle track my Nana had made a few years ago. I walked five laps around it and used my iPod’s fitness tracker to record my progress. Walking around the track is a better work out because the terrain is uneven. It’s basically a chunk of field that has been mowed.
I only had time for a 15 minute walk today, but that fifteen minutes helped me a lot. I got to see my progress on my iPod and was very motivated to do more. So tomorrow I’m going to go out and walk again. I walked .78 of a mile in 15 minutes and burned 105 calories. Tomorrow I’d like to do half an hour to an hour and at least a mile I know I can do it.
Brittany invited me to do a marathon with her in September. September 9 to be exact. So I have roughly two months to get into shape for this. We’ll see if I can at least walk it.
So here are today’s stats: 256 lbs. Distance .78 miles. Time 15 minutes. Calories lost 105.
