Weigh In and other Miscelleanous Ramblings
I have been keeping track of me food log locally. I found myself with a temporary job and have been so busy I haven’t had time for much else. If anything, I haven’t been eating nearly enough: I’ve been trying to keep my calorie intake at least at 1200 calories. Some days it works, some days it doesn’t. Through it all I’ve been sticking to it though- a couple of nites KFC or Pizza Hut sounded *real* good….but I didn’t do it! The only reason I was tempted with the afore-mentioned restaurants is pure laziness- I simply didn’t want to cook.
It’s been so long since I’ve been in the outside work world, I forgot what it’s like. I’ve been working from home since 2001.
At any rate, this morning I got on the scale and discovered I’ve lost 26 lbs. Whee! I am on day 100.
Exercise. The walking thing never did really work out, the cycling has been intermittent. But Saturday, I took baby boy to the park to hit some baseballs for a science project.
I managed to hit some balls and not drop dead. Heck I wasn’t even out of breath! A week before that we went to Parrot Jungle and walked around for several hours and that didn’t kill me.
I’m getting better it seems.
While at the park Saturday, an idea began to form. The park has paddleball courts. I used to love playing paddleball in high school – and tennis – not that I was ever any good, but running around and hitting the ball was fun, go figure.
So yesterday, on my way to get babyboy, I went by Kmart, picked up a couple of cheapie tennis rackets and some balls and took him over to play – can’t really call it paddleball – more like – let’s see if we can hit the ball and keep it going. I daresay I did pretty good considering I haven’t touched a tennis racket since what – 1978? I woke up today and I can still move, too! A bonus. Babyboy played by himself for awhile, he started getting the hang of it.
We’re going to make a point to go 5 days a week. The exercise did babyboy a world of good as well.
