Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. After work I walked to the bus stop and climbed the steps at the transit center. On the way home my husband and I had dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. It was our first time eating there. We didn't walk on the treadmills tonight. My husband was tired. I jogged in place because I was a little shy of my 5 mile daily goal.

    Thanks Ladies! Lucycan7, Lizzie, it was a little pricey and not the wings I'm used to. I like the hot wings that's fried with batter or breaded. These were the kind you dip in sauce. My husband enjoyed them. But we won't be going back there for a long time. emoticon

You are doing fantastic!

Thursday After Work

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Well, my husband asked me to meet him at another stop, so I didn't get to climb the steps. I did walk half a mile to the bus stop. Bible study was cancelled so I also walked/jogged on the treadmill. My husband and I did 1.5 miles. We were supposed to take a break tonight but my husband had a luncheon at work and he said he ate too much. So, no rest. My fitbit says I walked 8 miles and 15,900 steps. emoticon

Today's Walks

Thursday, November 20, 2014

I went out to meet my co-workers at 11:30. This time the lady with the walk sign was not there. I took my headphones just in case no one showed up, I would walk by myself. The last time I said I was coming back out later, I didn't make it. So I stood there looking around and this other lady who I had never seen before came and asked me if I was walking. She said this was her first time coming out since the walks started back in September and she wasn't able to make it due to meetings. We waited a few minutes and then Lena came out. Lena is one of the regular walkers. So the three of us set out for our 1.4 mile walk. The new lady said she had to make it a quick walk because she had a meeting to attend. Lena said "that's okay. We walk fast. She said I've walked with her(talking about me) and she is awesome." So I walked slightly ahead of them because there wasn't a lot of room on the sidewalk. When we got half a mile, the new lady turned back. So Lena and I continued our walk. We walked pretty fast. When we came to lights that were about to change we jogged across. Lena seemed to like the way I walk. The walking program is set to end this Tuesday. Lena said she would continue to walk with me if I wanted because this was the only exercise she gets. The walk usually takes 28 to 30 minutes. We did it in 24 minutes. After 1 pm I went out for my regular 2.3 mile walk. I was able to cut my time by two minutes. I guess I was still in fast mode. I already have my 5 miles for the day. I might still have to walk half a mile to the bus stop, depending on how that first bus I take is running. Then at the transit center I will be climbing the steps. And when I get home I have to do my strength training. I have bible study and choir rehearsal and I may have to drive my car. We have church members that may need a ride tonight. I usually ride with my mom but her car is too small for 5 people. So I won't be trying to do the treadmill tonight. I've done enough already! emoticon

I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I felt much better today. After work I walked .6 miles to the bus stop. When I got to the transit center I climbed the steps. I don't know if I am climbing any faster but I don't have to rest between the sets. There are three sets of nineteen steps. When we got home my husband wanted to walk/jog on the treadmills. We only did one mile but it was rough. My husband decided to jog and even though I wasn't feeling like it, I had to keep up. After all, I am the one who wanted to get on the treadmills. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks Ladies! Lizzie, there is a lot of competition going on. That may be why we have managed to keep the weight off. We are always trying to out do each other or at least keep up. emoticon

    Do I hear a little competition going on? Good job!

Good job on the stairs too. They are always a challenge for me.

Today I went out to meet my co-workers for our 11:30 walk. No one showed. Only the lady who holds the walk sign and she wasn't walking. So I decided to go back to my desk and walk a little later when it warms up. So I ate my lunch and did some work on my computer. After a couple of hours I got a little dizzy. When 1:30 came I decided not to walk. I sat at my desk until it was time to go home. I was still dizzy until I got outside. I seemed to feel better. I walked to the bus stop and when I got to the transit center I climbed the steps. My husband and I stopped at JC Penney on the way home. He bought me two burgundy blouses and four pair of earrings. You had to buy two earrings to get the discounted price. He wants me to wear a burgundy blouse, black jeans and my burgundy boots to his end of the year luncheon at work. When we got home it was late. We watched the 6:30 news and then we walked/jogged on the treadmills. We only did 1.5 miles but it was rough. Neither one of us was feeling well. I also did my strength training while watching TV. I didn't get my 5 miles in but considering how I was feeling today, I'm satisfied with 4.

    I hope you are feeling better today. I dont know about you, but those Santa Ana winds really mess with me. Take care; you still did a good job on your activity.

    Your doing so good!
Are you diabetic? I get dizzy like that myself and I fear going anywhere alone most of the time. I know you work so that's not an option for you but I would panic at getting on a public bus feeling that way.....
