Exercise+, Day 12: Workin’ It In the Eleventh Hour

Technically, I should probably say I failed today, since I’m finishing up and it’s nearly 1:00 a.m.  However, in my defense I technically DID get 120 minutes of ‘exercise’ in before midnight…  I finally made good on my threat to get up early and do some Wii Fit first thing.  I got in an hour’s worth of workout, but on the whole I wasn’t satisfied with it, so I’m still going to do at least 100 minutes on the treadmill.

I’m such a slave driver!  But I intend to backdate (or at least back-time) this entry, because it’ll bug me to see a day on the calendar that isn’t filled. 😉  Cheater, me.

Exercise+, Day 11: Sickness and Superbowl

Wow! I made it down here to walk before 10:00!  Go me!

And, I am pleased to report, though this weird illness has claimed four of my six family members to date, both Noah and I are going strong.   As of this writing, I don’t have any symptoms at all, and I’m hoping it stays that way.  Noah is also surprisingly healthy considering he shares a room with Luke.  Granted, Luke sleeps below him on the bunk beds they share, but still.  I would have expected Noah to come down with this before either Susanna or Zack, and yet he’s fine.  I seem to recall Noah getting sick more or less by himself awhile back, so maybe he’s just had this already.

Me?  I blame my uber-healthy habits. 😉  Inside me there are complete Quinoa proteins shaking their spears and rarring at any invaders.  Just try to infect me!  I dare you!  My leukocytes are ready for you!  They have been armed with spinach and red bell peppers and celery and broccoli and quinoa and whole-grain wild rice!  So there!

Of course, just watch…tomorrow I’ll wake up and run for the bathroom. 😉  That would be about right.  And don’t think for an instant that Andy will stay home from work to help out if I do.  No sir.   So God, please do not let this happen to me tomorrow.  If it must happen, let it happen Saturday.  That would be just fine.

Exercise+, Day 1: Lame Labels

Wow… I feel completely off my game today.   I mean, it was a busy day, and an unusual one for starting a new cycle, but still.  Wendy and her boys came out and spent lunch and the afternoon with us, so I didn’t really have a ton of time in the end to dedicate to the goals I set down for myself.

Nonetheless, I did enough to count today a success.  I walked my 120 minutes, and I spent part of the evening sitting down with Daylite’s Concept Manual so I could finally get my brain around everything it can do.  It’s a great program, but it’s one of those things where it’s designed to be applicable across a rather broad spectrum.   Big companies with a huge workforce and a diverse array of clients can use it to delegate duties and track project progress, etc.  Given that, I have a lot of fat trimming to do to get it to work for me.

So, I spent part of today setting up categories and keywords that seemed applicable. It doesn’t sound like much, I guess, but I didn’t have a lot of time.  Anyway, it needed doing.

Zack is caught up on his schoolwork.  Noah didn’t have any.  Success there too.

I think I will amend my exercise regimen somewhat this time around, actually.  I know I said I would walk for at least 120 minutes, but I think I’m going to amend that to ‘do at least 120 minutes of exercise’.   I’m wanting to give the Wii Fit another shot, particularly the Yoga, but I want credit for it if I do that. 😉  Especially since it’s something that eats up time as a standalone activity; I can’t do computer work while doing Yoga, after all.  I just want to feel like I’m doing something for upper body once in awhile too.
