I've been working a lot, so didn't feel much like walking.

Walked 2 miles on the trail today.

Monday and Thursday...

Monday-day off from work, so Bob and I spent the day fixing up the electric fence around our pastures.

Thursday-day off. We finished fixing pastures and put horses out to graze on the new grass. Also spent a few hours moving old cars, etc.

Today I'll be chicken fryer at work, so that's enough exercise!

Walked 2 miles on the Heartland Trail.
It took about 45 minutes and used up about 200 calories!

May 16...

Bob visiting the Gulf of Mexico on our trip to Texas.

Ten-day roadtrips play havoc with good intentions. :}
Nevertheless, we'll jump right back into the fray!

Walked 2 miles on the Heartland Trail. Fran Gack was rollerskating and we visited for a bit about fiddles, tinwhistles and Celtic music.

Bought lots of healthy food at the grocery store to restock shelves at home and hopefully Bob and I will gain some self-control and thereby lose some excess weightage.

Since I will be working at the deli full-time for the summer, I'll probably walk on my days off.

May 2...

Walked 2 miles on the Heartland Trail.
Helped fix the pasture fence. Got some vitamin D!
Looks like I'm averaging once a week for my walking.
Gotta do better than that!

2 miles on the Heartland Trail.

April 14...

*walked 2 MILES on trail-46 minutes (one mile was too easy...)
*5# weights-biceps, triceps and overhead press-25 each

Jody from Home-Made Living suggested Vitamin D3 because of my doctor saying I had a 1-in-3 chance of developing breast cancer. SO, I'm taking 5000IU per day from now until July 14, at which time I'll get my levels checked and probably cut back a bit. Also, I'm going to get some magnesium via sunflower seeds and probably start on a Senior multivitamin in addition to eating more veggies, salmon and oatmeal for my cholesterol levels. I just started cholesterol lowering meds, and I don't plan to take them forever!:P

Finally back at it...

I've been using chronic fatigue as an excuse not to exercise since last summer and I was slowing down considerably before that. Now I'm trying to get back at it to get my lymph and circulatory systems working better. (So A&P class shouldn't be a TOTAL loss.)


*walked ONE MILE on the bike trail. Home to Nevis and back. 24 minutes.
*25 reverse crunches.
*arm exercises with 5 pound weights. (bicep curls, triceps and overhead presses: 25 reps)

My goal is to work up to 2 miles without overdoing it. When that gets too easy I'll begin jogging very gently. Not trying to set records, just stay with it for the long haul.
