Hello everyone. Sorry to be out of touch. I began a two week vacation on Monday 8/17. I worked on Saturday, finishing up enough tasks that I could relax during my vacation, then spent Sunday and Monday getting ready for company and travel. House guests arrived Monday evening and on Tuesday we piled into the car and drove up to Maine for 3 days. Great to see them and good trip but not much exercise. Guests left at noon today and I’ve been lounging on the couch ever since–very hot and humid here. I leave again on Sunday for a week on Block Island (off the coast of Rhode Island) w/ some other friends. That should be a good week for beach walks, etc.
So, the week of 8/9 – 8/16 I walked for 30 minutes several times and did my strength training exercises one day.
This past week I did lots of house work and errand running early in the week. Yesterday we went for a short hilly walk in the woods–not sure of the distance but it took about 35 minutes–and today we went for a two mile walk on a somewhat hilly route.
