So, what did I do today? Well, I spent all morning working on a project at the computer. Washed bedding on and off all day. Made lunch for the kids - all four of them. Yep, my love was home today too. :)
Then we all settled in and watched Secretariat (very neat movie) and suddenly I was tired of sitting around...so I put on my tennis shoes, popped in the DVD and started a Leslie Sansone Walk At Home 3-mile workout.
I stepped higher than ever before, and pushed myself as hard as I could. Ms. Leslie even did a little bit of an arm workout with the hand weights. Boy it felt good!
I wore my Garmin with heart rate monitor (yes, I finally used it and will post about it tomorrow maybe) and tracked my heart rate throughout the workout. I was pleased to share with my husband that I kept my heart rate between 145-155 bpm's throughout the workout, and I even hit just over 160 bpm's at the most intense point. Woo Hoo! He's always doubted whether "walking DVDs", as I call them, do that much good for me.
Well, they sure did today. My old faithful 3-Mile Weight Loss Walk DVD gave me a way to get some good exercise in on a cold, cold day.
Have a nice evening! I'm off to make a late dinner for the family. Er, scratch that...while I've been posting my Luv has taken up my offer to free himself of boredom and make dinner. *insert sly smile* He's "getting creative in the kitchen" and I'm all for that this evening! :)
