Burned Several Calories Today

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Today I walked with the group at work. This time there were more people and they walked faster. We walked about 1.4 miles. I didn't feel like going out again so I walked half a mile to the bus stop after work. Of course that meant I missed my bus but another one came 6 minutes later. When I got home, my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. I also ran in place for another mile while watching TV. My fitbit says I walked 7.2 miles and 15,801 steps. I burned a lot of extra calories, unfortunately, I also ate a little too much today. I will do much better tomorrow. emoticon

Today was our off day from work. We took our car in for a routine oil change and maintenance check up at 7 am. When we got home, my husband decided he wanted to mow the lawn. I actually mowed it, as usual. He did the edging. Then we went to the pharmacy to pick up some medicine. Afterwards, we finally went to his mom's house to fix her computer. We were there for less than an hour. Then we went to a friends house to fix her computer and we were there for about 3 hours. She had a really bad virus. My husband's shoulder is still hurting so I had to do all the driving until night fall. He decided he should drive when it got dark. We didn't make it home until after 8 pm. It was a long day. I didn't go down much on the scale this week. But any amount is good. As long as I keep moving in the right direction. emoticon

This morning we got up at 7:30 and went to breakfast at IHOP. My husband's idea of course. Then we came home and started cleaning. My husband vacuumed all the floors and cleaned the wooden floor. I started the laundry and cleaned the kitchen. Then my husband called his sister to see when they were coming. They were already on their way. When they got here, my husband had to find his bolt cutter because my brother-in-law lost the key to the lock on his storage unit. We went on over there and one of my husband's nephews had to cut the lock off. Then we unloaded the truck. After we finished there we had to go to my husband's brother and unload the refrigerator, a bed, and several plants. My sister-in-law has so many plants that she had to leave some of them here, thanks to my husband. She also left her furs over here. She says she didn't trust leaving them at her other brother's house because there are too many people coming in and out. We don't have much space in our closets, even though there are 5 of them. I will have to clear some space tomorrow. After we finished unloading and cleaning out the truck, my sister-in-law and I went to buy some chicken for lunch. We sat in the back yard and ate. After they left my husband and I went to Costco. My husband loves that place. When we got home, my mom and grandson stop by on their way home. They didn't stay long. My grandson just wanted to get some cupcakes. I bought some individually wrapped cupcakes, and fruit roll ups for my grand kids. My husband hurt his shoulder pretty bad. I put one of those healing patches on it. He has already gone to bed and I'm getting ready to go to bed also because we have to be up before 6:30 tomorrow. Busy, busy, busy!

Today we helped my sister in law and her husband move. We were supposed to get up at 6:30, walk two miles, go have breakfast, and then drive out to Palmdale. It didn't work out like we planned. I woke my husband up at 6:30, but he said he needed more sleep. So I went back to sleep. We didn't get up until 7:30 which meant there was no time to walk. Then we had to go pick up someone who was helping with the move. So we picked him up and grabbed a bite at Mac Donald's. We didn't get down there until 10:00. When we got there the truck from the storage place was there. We had to load it up in a hurry because the guy was only supposed to stay for an hour. It's a good thing he came late, because we were late. After we loaded it up we had to go to the storage place and unload it. Then we had to go back to the house and load up the big truck. It didn't look as if we were going to get all that stuff in the storage locker but we made it. Then we had to load the truck again for the stuff that was coming down here. They had to park the truck in front of our house because it got to late to unload it. They still have more stuff at the house. I think they are going to get another unit, but smaller to put some more stuff in. They really need to get rid of some of the stuff they got. They said they had a garage sale but they couldn't sale anything. I said they need a give it away sale. They will be living with the other brother for a few months and then they are going to look for another place down here. We will have to do this all over again. Fun times. emoticon Good news: The scale went down for me this morning.

Current weight: 243.8

Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. I also walked to the bus stop after work. And when I got home, I walked 2.6 miles with my husband. My fitbit says I walked over 6 miles and 14,000 steps. I may do a little walking in place as I watch my TV shows tonight. Tomorrow we will be driving to Palmdale to help my husband's sister move. It's going to be a long day! I hope you all have a great weekend!
