Today I was going to do my arm & shoulder weights.
Today I got 5 36-can cases of pop at the warehouse store.

... my biceps decided that counts. ;)

Today was one of those "feel achy and sore and don't wanna" days, so I watched Ina Garten make a picnic (the shrimp salad looks good, but dunno about mayo on a picnic) and did 20 minutes on the treadmill anyway. I did a few stretches after, which felt fabulous...I've been focusing on strength training and walking, not stretching.

Today's walk involved going to a nearby restaurant for wine and conversation with a friend. Because sometimes I need a bigger reward than just having the walk done ;)

I've been slacking a bit on walking, but have been doing leg lifts and extra stairs and such, so I was glad (but not too surprised) that I handled walking a couple miles on Saturday okay.

Monday I ran errands that involved walking.

Today I hit the gym - 3/4 of a mile on the treadmill, during which Rachel Ray made chicken-and-egg sandwiches and Ina Garten prepped Bloody Marys. The sandwiches have me wondering if she really expects people to make them the way she does or to just make the parts that sound appealing...

more workout notes

20 minutes on the treadmill, a bit over .6 miles. Slow, but not as slow as I was (used to do .4 miles in 20 minutes). Meanwhile Ina Garten made chocolate pudding and couscous.

Also did 50lb leg extensions and 10lb curls/presses. It's kind of weird to write it that way because the 50lb exercise used both legs and the 10lb dumbbells meant each arm had 10lbs, but...oh well.

Yesterday: Just under 1/2 a mile. I felt an odd sort of hyper - mentally tired from the day's work, but not physically. The walk felt good, and I followed it with leg lifts and wall-ups.

Today: About a third of a mile, but despite wearing dressier shoes I felt fine, so I'm happy ;)

Walked to a nearby restaurant for lunch. Ended up doing my normal walk and had a glass of wine ;)

Yesterday I went for a walk after dinner to help let go of some of the feelings stirred up by this piece on "childhood obesity" theoryofgravity posted at Fatshionista.com. Eloquent, good, and without the raging profanity or suicidal ramblings that my attempts at the topic inevitably get lost in, hence my not writing on the topic myself.

(I'd cried before dinner. Funny I didn't cry while reading it, but after it all cut loose.)
