Had the most pathetic weekend with my pedometer. Rained all day Saturday, and I pretty much hung about in bed. I walked a whole 1650 steps.
Yesterday wasn't great either. About 3700 steps. Got to get back up to close to 8000 again today.

Congratulations on the housework, Mauvais!! Maybe I should do some of that today... it's going to rain ALL WEEK!!

Well I actually got off my heiny and got up at 6 am this morning to do pilates

I got this great tape for beginners called Quickfix that breaks the routine down into 10 minute increments and you can choose how many you want to do that day. I thought it was going to be lame but I felt the burn in my abs and legs not bad for a $10 tape from Walmart!

Tomorrow is my yoga day with Rodney Yee's A.M./P.M yoga for beginners ($10 for the two-pack set at Costo). I figure that Tuesdays and Thursdays are my high stress days at work so maybe yoga will help me prepare for the day

I am just walking around, the usual stuff. Might walk to the library after I drop youngest DD back at school (this is her lunch-at-home opportunity now).

About 5000 steps today. Maybe I'll work up to 8000-10000 gradually...

I did my pm yoga tape last night and this morning I did the Pilates workout for 30 minutes

Feeling good I just hope I can keep this up and not lose momentum!

Walking interspersed with a sort of jog, which I like since I don't get exhausted & it is easy on the knees, but I get a little run in sort of, which feels good.

I did a fast walk down to the Village Market with Hershey. She was off lead and huffing and puffing when we got home. I will try it again later today if it doesn't RAIN! I just can't handle walking in the rain!
