Movin', groovin' and what not
How is it the last day of September? Man, time flies!
Yesterday my hips were givin' me the business about our 3+ mile walk Sunday. If you'd ever told me we'd walk a 5K route like as a Sunday stroll, I would've told you no friggin' way. I'm so grateful. I could've used the case of the creaks as an excuse to not get my rump off the couch and do the 1 mile walk I was going to do in the morning but I didn't. I popped in my Leslie and got to walkin'. My weight loss is staller than stalled and me sitting on my ass working from home doesn't help. So I've made the commitment to myself to get in a little extra movement. I don't know if it'll work or not as I have the best of intentions on that front sometimes and then the alert that pops up gets dismissed or snoozed on like all day. So, wish me luck!
It was strength day so we did Fitness Blender's Fat Blasting Total Body Strength workout. It doesn't look too bad when you preview it but when you're going through it, you make up some new naughty words.
It was a protein packed day with some leftover roasted turkey breast and then a nice juicy steak for dinner.
Then it was time to run the Mr's car back to the closest dealership...again. I cannot tell you how ticked I am that between both of our cars, we've basically taken a car in once a month in the year we've had them. His more than mine. I swear lemon laws need to be revised. We will never get that brand of car again. I don't know how you go from being a completely satisfied customer 10 years ago to one who will swear off your company forever. Irritating.
We settled in for our favorite night of TV between The Voice and Sleepy Hollow. While we haven't been overly impressed with the singers this year, I'm loving Gwen and Pharrell on there. This is my dream line up and I hope they never change it. I know they will...just let me have my dream. When Sleepy Hollow comes on, we light the faux candles, flip off the lights and transport ourselves to Tarrytown. So far they seem to be keeping up with expectations and we're happy with what we're seeing. I know it's important to the writers that the Mr and I approve, so you know, we do what we can. ;-)
We've got our eye doctor appointments this morning so we'll look like we're on narcotics when we're done. The Mr took the day off and we're going to get some errands done that we put off over the weekend. They say these will be the last of the hotter days before a cold front comes in over the weekend and spirits away the summer. Good riddance. I can't enjoy my hot cider as much when I'm engaging in flop sweat.
Speaking of flop sweat, it's big cardio day! Not sure if we'll have a date with Chalene and Turbo Fire, Billy and old school Tae Bo or Tony on mute with Power 90 but it'd better burn some buttah!
