Sara – my last week of semi-vacation…

Well, this week I will have to do some serious work, boo hoo.  Can’t complain too much, at least my job has a slow season!  It was moderately hot this week, but having lived in Miami, Florida, it never seems REALLY hot in Pennsylvania to me…

July 23 – 1032 steps;  July 24 – 7400;  July 25 – 6539; July 26th – 5699, and I am particularly happy to have walked on this day, since I also spent a lot of time pulling weeds and moving plants around in my back yard.  There is more to do but I am procrastinating…

July 27 – 8945 steps.  Yes, it definitely helps to have a goal — such as walking to the store, even if you only need 3 things!  (easy to carry)

Mid-week I managed some abs exercises but didn’t do any the last couple of days.  Oh well…

Stay cool, everyone!  (but I think I’m keeping my underwear on…)  🙂

    Yes, having a goal does help.
    Walking to the store if you don’t have a lot you need is definitely great exercise. I also noticed that running several errands in the neighbourhood during the day often piles up as many steps if not more than a long walk.
    Some exercise sites say that abs sessions shouldn’t be done every day, but several times a week. Now I don’t think this would apply to my two minutes 😉
    As for gardening, I find it is really hard work.
    So it seems that you’ve had quite a productive week!

    It does look like a good week. Hope your work week goes well too.

  3. Incidentally, forgot to tell you! I bought the pedometer you recommended on eBay. It’s just wonderful and does its job even in your pocket, which is what I like. The only drawback for me is that its display is only in pounds, feet and miles! I was surprised that they didn’t give you a chance to change this to French measurements. But once it’s done (had to figure out my height in ft and inches! pounds are easier) it works wonderfully.
    I didn’t bother about stride, looked up the average for women on the Internet, and I was done.
    Even though I’m pretty clumsy, I managed to put it together without help!
    So thanks for the tip!

    I’m particularly impressed about your gardening. My weeds are growing apace and I can’t sort them out yet.

    sara, very good–particularly in this hot weather which we’re sharing here in nyc.

    yes, goals needed to continue with regular exercise…now that’s a hard one for me. like the way you’ve figured how to make little trips.

    seems pedometer that claude now has adopted would suit those times–very few–when i dress up. i always have a pocket, so that would work! please tell the brand.

    we all have permission to do less some days than others. gardening would knock me out totally.

    Oh thanks, everyone, for your encouragement. I will post in a few minutes with info on the pedometer (thanks Claude for trying it — believe it or not, I have not, for reasons to be explained later) and with some other encouraging stuff I found in Prevention– which is actually a pretty cool little magazine — they have a website, prevention.com.
    Actually I have slowed down the gardening a bit and have been spending more time on the computer which is a challenge…
