This has been one of those crazy busy weeks for me. Probably, compared to many women's lives, it wouldn't seem that frantic, but for me...with the shopping and lunching and appointments and stuff...jam-packed!
This week, in addition to Wedding Outfits, I was looking for one of those cupcake stands for a tea I'm having in July. Could I find one? No. But I did look in several stores. I also returned one of the four wedding outfits I got after Daughter gave me "a look" when I tried it on. 'Nuff (not) said, especially as it was the most expensive. And the pants were too long. (Situation of thinking, in the store, that once I had heels on, they would work. This is really never the case, and yet I bought it anyway. D'oh.)
So this week, on at least two occasions, my step tallies were not on a walk-for-exercise, but from wandering a mall, although I also added a brisk short walk on one day to bring the tally up. In the rain.
This morning's weigh in was 134.4 despite pigging out on mini-Tootsie rolls while watching So You Think You Can Dance. Yeah! I'm hoping to keep up a minimum of 10,000 steps a day or at least 40 minutes on the treadmill. I do note that two days, I didn't do that. OTOH, I wasn't eating huge meals this week either, what with the busy-ness.
This weeks's treadmill/step/exercise ball tally:
May 22 - 40 min. on TM, 20 eball lifts (this was the only day I did the lifts, because the rest of the week, I was walking.)
May 23 - nuthin' (brunch with friends)
May 24 - 17,710 (whooo hooo!)
May 25 - 12,863
May 26 - 13,303 (shopping)
May 27 - 12,456 (shopping)
May 28 - nuthin' (lunch with niece, although I did park far away from the fabric store later, so I would have a longer walk, and then I knocked down half a display in the store - domino effect, you see. Oh, the shame!)
Where is the writing in all this? Funny you should ask.
Nowhere. Didn't do any. Fortunately, I planned it that way. I shudder to think how stressed I'd be if I had a pressing deadline right now!
