In April, Florida is hot! I think my poor Canuck’s body was starting to have a melt down. I shouldn’t complain, I know most of you guys are just starting to see spring, but I’m not a summer type person, as a matter of fact, summer is my least favorite season.
Last Saturday, the car was pointing North where we could escape to cooler weather. – end of the weather rant :)
It usually takes 3 days to drive from our home in Florida to our home in Canada. Last weekend we drove it in 2 days. Sunday we drove 16 hours, that's 1500 KM (930 Miles) straight. That was a long day which started at 4:30 AM.
For the weekend, including Monday as a rest day, my exercising consisted mostly of going for pee-breaks, less than 1000 steps per day.
Tuesday I started to walk again and I even went for a run in late afternoon. Mentally, it was hard. I felt like I could rest for a while and not exercise but I know it's a downfall that I can't afford. In my book, exercise is not something I want to do when I feel like it, it has to be part of my daily routine.
We ate our meals during the trip in restaurants but we did really great. Monday when we drove to our place from our daughter’s house (a 1 hour drive), we also stopped at a restaurant for lunch so that we would not be starving when we got home. We had a breakfast meal for lunch. I even ate 2 slices of bacon. There were 4 slices in my plate but I believe in “eat less” so 2 slices didn't make the trip to the bottom of my stomach. There was also some home style potatoes, some went down, some didn't.
Next Sunday is my official weight in; however, I weight myself daily and I can tell that my weight is still following it's downfall!
Today hopefully I'll catch up with all the posts you folks wrote. I was keeping you in my mind (and quickly reading your posts).My new computer has some problems, it keeps adding links to words in blogger. Even when I write a comment, it keeps opening pages about surveys, it is so annoying, any suggestions?
