Default Yay! I exercised today!

I did a ton of walking during my holiday last week!

After dinner last night DH and I walked about 8 blocks and back to drop off our cable payment. Must confess that we popped in to Tim Horton's for a French Vanilla cappuccino and a white chocolate chunk macadamian nut cookie - delicious!

This morning I walked to work and then walked around the downtown area at lunch while picking up some groceries.

I will also walk home tonight.

The usual walk to work and back home again in the evening- sheesh it's hot

I also walked down the stairs at work twice today (14 flights x 2) It is too hot to do much more exercise than this

I walked a lot on the weekend and walked up and down lots of stairs. And am up and down stairs a lot during the day...though my walking is minimal right now - back to it in September though, and when we go away for a week starting next Friday...

I have been taking 1/2 walks at lunch time and have been taking the stairs down at work whenever possible.

Yesterday I was doing some calve stretching exercises at work while waiting for the copier to print my documents. I am hoping that no one will walk into the copier room while I am doing this and end up thinking I am a freak!

Mauvais that is a great thing to do. I do stuff like that when I am waiting for the water to boil for one of my gourmet mac-and-cheese a la box creations...I am going to walk today I think. Only a few weeks until I can set my own schedule (for some of the day anyhow)!! Can't sit and think about what I want to write when people are saying "Mom....she looked at me like THIS [horrible pop-eyed face]" or "Mom...something really BAD happened/I'm really sorry but [insert disaster of choice here]/I'm bored/I'm hungry/I'm thirsty/when are we going to the pool (library, park etc)" ---

Mind you I will miss them when they go back to school - eldest is in her last year of grade school (5th grade) and youngest is sad that after this yr they will be at different schools. They are growing up so fast. I just wish they had something absorbing to do 3 hrs a day somewhere else in the house! Like clean it!

Did a ton of walking this weekend but it has been too hot and muggy to do much more...

I walked about 2-3 miles, don't know for sure as my pedometer is on the blink (sigh).

I walked today! I got dressed, threw Soundgarden in the cd player and headed out. I have no idea how long I was out except that I only had 2 songs left when I got home!!! Now if I could only do this 5 days a week like the old days!
