I FINALLY got my new walking shoes. (Shoes.com dropped the ball so I got them through Amazon with my two day shipping Prime service.) I knew I wanted to start breaking them in so when we go on summer vacay, they would be well worn in with my insoles and such. I really sucked rocks on getting in walks last week consistently so I wanted to make up by trying to walk 3 miles around the city. I need to get my leg muscles used to walking and a stroll around the hood ain't gonna cut it. So the Mr put on his new shoes and we got on our way. Of course at some point we had to stop along the
weigh way to enjoy the water just a little since it was warm and a slight breeze that night.
|Our new "shoebies" as my Grandma would say|
...and we saw some downright crappy things. Yes, those are shopping carts.
Saturday I woke up in hellacious pain. The muscles on the top of my feet, especially the right, were very sore to the touch. I knew I had overcompensated and worst still, I didn't stretch or do my ankle massage when we were done so I was paying for it dearly. But I had to get back on the horse and we headed to the local mall and probably got in 3 miles over the course of the day. I felt a little better by the end of the day but by night, we were both hobbling like we needed new hips.
Sunday, we started going through some stuff in the basement and I didn't have it in me to do some big workout down there. I figured let's keep it up and walk again and hit the three miles. This time we didn't have the weather on our side. It was barely above freezing and it was breezy. Luckily we came upon an open house in its last 7 minutes.
I think I'm in love, even with the Amityville eyes...
That room was one of my favorite in that 1800's home. It was on the 2nd floor where the master was and I could totally live there. I loved the sink in the bathroom too.
We did a good job and hit our 3 miles. (I mapped it to make sure in addition to our FitBit)
On the way home, I knew I had about 200 extra calories to spare so we stopped by Dairy Queen and grabbed a chocolate kiddie cone. Here are my favorite parts of eating my 170 calorie kiddie cone.
Delicious! And just enough to give you the taste of it without going batchit on it. (But don't think I wasn't tempted to do a dip cone. Le sigh)
For dinner we had kalua pork nachos.
It was a good weekend and lots of activity. We need to keep it up and we'll be doing some trails too to get some hills under our belts as well.
Oh yeah, did you know it's been 30 years since the brain, princess, athlete, basket case and criminal gathered in detention? To commemorate this iconic movie, the Mr and I will be watching The Breakfast Club tonight.
What did you do this weekend?
