For 75 minutes of moving my butt in the pool doing laps, weights, jogging, treading and just swimming I used up 679 calories. Not the best compared to what I usually do when at the gym but also not terrible. With my floor exercises for another 40 minutes I’ll be able to add on about 200 more calories (really take off them) so today will work out to 880. So I’ll take it and work on it. No routine yet, just trying different things to see what’s possible.
After doing all that cooking and what not yesterday my calf was swollen, hot and sore last night so I put it up and iced it. I hate taking medicine so I didn’t but I know that I need to so today after my work out I did the same thing, I rested for 10 minutes, iced it and took some IBP. It’s throbbing a bit and my foot is frozen but it’s not as bad as it was so that must mean some improvement. It’s just so slow and driving me nuts but I shouldn’t really fuss about it. I am able to move, I am able to exercise I am able to do most anything, just slower with some discomfort. I’ll live.
So how are you doing on your exercises? Are you logging your food and exercises? Remember even a good walk is great exercise and good for the heart, body and soul. Logging is so important too and I have been lax at that. Even with the menu's we have I know that I need to put all that I eat and taste. BLT’s…nope not bacon, lettuce and tomato…bites, licks and tastes are what gets me with all the baking and canning and cooking I do. It’s hard to send food out the door when I’m not positive it’s palatable so that means a taste here and there. Baking and the drop on my finger, wipe it off..don’t lick it off. That coffee cake crumb, I don’t need to bite that, just brush it off into the garbage. It takes effort and thought and I’m working on that. It’s best if I’m chewing gum while I do this stuff, since who wants lumpy gum with crumbs in it, not me.
So it’s almost time to head to the library. I can’t remember what we are doing but I remember we were told to dress warm because we’ll be outside for part of the morning and then a craft inside. I’m going to pick up Kim, pick up Miley and then go and play. Then afterwards we are going back to Kim’s for lunch and chatter. Home about 12:30 for nap and my exercise.
Take care my friends. Blessing!!!
