Weight Loss Wednesday


The thing I dreaded happened this week: I was up. Only by point 6 pounds, but still. It's no fun to step on a scale and be up. Perhaps it was Curly's blueberry pie that did me in. If so, it was a delicious .6 pounds.

It's been hot and humid around here. I don't much care for the "hot" part, but add "and humid" and it pretty much does me in. We've been heavy users of the pool so far this summer. Some days we go twice. Today I decided we would go after lunch. We got up, ate breakfast, Ginger took her nap, I exercised, and Mini-me and Patch stayed in their pjs. They are finishing a leisurely lunch, and then we'll suit up and head out. Curly is going to meet us after work with some Giant Eagle fried chicken. We do the best we can with the weather. Hopefully any thunderstorms will hold off until after we're done.

So my goal for this week is to exercise more. I'm pretty good and parking far from the store and walking a little more, going up and down stairs when I can, and carrying my baby instead of pushing her in a stroller or cart. Accidental exercise is great for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but I also need the purposeful workout. This morning I did one of my Firm workout DVDs. It was great. It was a 30 minute quick workout that combined cardio and weights. I am going to be sore, but if I keep out it I'll be hot, too.
