The last week has been quite unusual. I vacuumed under my desk and lost my internet and couldn’t get it back. So I switched providers! I’ve lost the annoying buzz on my phone and I’ve also got a year’s worth of basic cable.
Last night I caught a CBC show called “Village on a Diet” – at least that’s what I think it’s called. You can check it out on the CBC website. http://www.cbc.ca/liverightnow/village/ I didn’t get to watch the whole series, but last night was inspirational at least to me. It just goes to show what a difference a few changes can make. And when one person starts to change, there’s a ripple affect that starts to move others in new directions too.
After last weeks “Numbers” post, I had intended to do some others, but then I lost the internet connection. I took some time off from the computer, Farmville and the Internet in general. It was okay. The result is that I’m not beating a path to my computer first thing in the morning, and other things are getting done!
Things haven’t changed much at the gym. I seem to be getting there a little earlier than I used to, but not early enough to do one of Patrick’s 6 o’clock boot camps. Monday, Wednesday and Friday are weight days. I haven’t increased the weight at all, just that “burning hold” in the middle of each set. The other days are moving days. I spend about 20 minutes on the elliptical machine, trying (and mostly succeeding) to achieve my 12 minute mile. After that hard work is done, I move to the bike and pedal there for about 15 minutes. Then I go onto the treadmill for 15 minutes and the cool-down. Nothing complicated and easily done in an hour! Join me sometime!
Anyways here are the numbers!
|After 9 weeks…
(to Mar. 7)
|Weight Loss||Number of Visits||Cost per visit||Miles
|Year to Date
|15 pounds||52||This week
As you can see, I’ve lost last weeks blip and a little more, which is pretty exciting! I can feel the difference in my work clothes, which is kind of annoying.
And I got to open one of my envelopes! It was a package that I got from the Arthritis Association. I haven’t had a chance to read it all, but it has some good information!
That’s where I’m at today!
