PW - I hope your cat is okay. . .
SG - Way go! It's hard for me to get out in hot humid weather.

August challenge: still on track; 485/1500.

I'm feeling impatient to see results, but I *am* feeling them. I'm still throwing off heat from my workout. I think I might need to extend my cool-down time. . .

I did 50 minutes of Wii today. Yoga, Strenth, and some Cardio/Balance. I haven't done this in a while but decided to pull it out today and WOW!. I already have muscles tightening up. I may have to do some walking on my treadmill in a bit to just loosen up or maybe just take a bubble bath in my jaccuzi....LOL. The walking would probably be better!

Well, I'm doing fine on minutes but am not happy with my consistency. I got a whole bunch of minutes again today hiking but only walked one other day this week. Going to get my walks in day to day this week and look at a nice long bike ride next weekend. I don't have time to go for a long hike so I'll shoot for an hour or more on the bike.
