Workouts on the go
Those are 14 flights of stairs. I go up them once because it does this to my heart rate...
Commence lung burn.
I know this is what people strive for but my puny little lungs just got over pneumonia and did not appreciate the joke. We walked a few paths both paved and then went to a bird sanctuary in the woods.
It was kind of depressing how dead everything still looks. With the mild winter (BOO by the way, we didn't get to use our ski's or snowshoes ONCE! We were robbed!), where was I? Oh yeah, with the mild winter and now the nicer weather you just expect to go out and see a sea of green. Not yet. But it's coming...
I couldn't resist taking a picture of us by the water when I found a sign that was about the right height to sit the camera on.
As I looked at it, I couldn't help but be reminded of a similar picture that we took 2 years ago on Kauai...
I remember that trip well. It was the first time I started to feel "normal." Like maybe I wasn't quite so big anymore or at least not circus show freak big, ya know? I was 375 lbs when we took that pic. Now 80 lbs lighter, I am amazed at the changes when you see them side by side. It encourages me to move forward and take more pics like this in the future.
We walked around the beach for a little while since we had it to ourselves.
We stayed for awhile then noticing the time, knew we had to get back to make it to the appointment in time. I did some step ups on the way back so I could get my heart rate back up and kick it over 900 calories for the whole workout.
Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Yeah baby!
Then it was off to my appointment. You know, that appointment. Don't make me show the picture of the awaiting speculum because I so will. I wore my "I Love Elvis" socks so she'd have something to read down there.
For the most part, it was a good day and we really enjoyed taking our workout on the go for a change of pace since we're indoor exercisers.
Are you an indoor exerciser? Outdoor? Both?
