Hi everyone! I have no excuse for not posting – except the very weak one that I wanted to add some photos from my visit to Massachusetts – but I have not gotten organized to even get them onto my computer. So this will have to do. Maybe I will add them later. I did have a lovely visit and a great change of scenery which left me feeling quite refreshed!
Steps – Thurs. July 16 – 10095 (2550 aerobic), 301 calories.
Fri. July 17 – 7165 steps (2097 aerobic), 190 calories, plus a MARVELOUS yoga class! I had not done a yoga class in over 10 years but managed quite well since I do keep up practice on the bridge position and the basic standing postures from time to time. Made me think I should try to do this at least at home…since I cannot manage a regular class…
Sat. July 18 – 7879 steps, 234 calories. Lots of food. Lazy man’s lobster, yum yum yum.
Sun. July 19 – 9612 steps (2747 aerobic), 273 calories. More food. Portuguese fish stew. Yum.
Mon. July 20 – 7574 steps (2709 aerobic), 216 calories. My birthday – now I’m 64! Rack of lamb and crème brulée. Yum. Claude, I have mastered ASCII codes so am now doing accents, ta da!
Tues. July 21 – 11,119 steps (3314 aerobic), 324 calories. My last day in Gloucester but I walked the entire length of the waterfront and back in the gentle rain…sometimes that is fun…ok, I’m weird…:-)
Wed. July 22 – driving. 2288 steps. Oof. I will spare you the nasty details of traffic…
Thurs. July 23 – 6439 steps (1672 aerobic), 181 calories.
Fri. July 24 – 11504 steps ( 5701 aerobic), 340 calories. Back to the step level that I would like to become accustomed to…
Sat. July 25 – 10660 steps (7459 aerobic), 297 calories. Yes!
Sun. July 26 – 11137 steps (5618 aerobic), 320 calories. Yes yes!
Mon. July 27 – 9328 steps (5063 aerobic), 267 calories. yes!
Tues. July 28 – 11968 steps (7479 aerobic), 356 calories – golly, how long can I keep this up?
Wed. July 29 – 6046 steps (2250 aerobic), 144 calories – but gee, not bad – a year ago this would have been a victory. And it was a rainy day but I have discovered that I really don’t mind walking in the rain as long as it’s not pouring!
So that’s enough for now. Without elderexercise I could NEVER have believed I could do so many steps in one week. And Claude’s example has been tremendously inspiring. “Commencer petit” and who knows where you will end up???
Best to everyone and I will post photos of Gloucester next time, I promise, or insert them into this post somehow. I was staying at a house on a hill which offered both lovely views and lovely walks…
