I exercised again today, more purposefully this time - playing Walk It Out on the Wii again but it's always a better work out on the single-player mode, at least with my kid. Island is coming along nicely and I even put together 3 constellations today so the sky is brighter at night. Finally figured out how to do that.
Hungry now, had too light of a lunch, I guess. Maybe I'll go for a banana and some walnuts. Definitely gotta do something about all this fruit around here! Plus, I think kiddo has pulled ahead of me with her fruit sticker collection. It's a wonder that kid isn't in the bathroom all the time. At least she's motivated!
I've had a bit of knee pain lately (weather related?) and hadn't really exercised well for 3 or 4 days. Or is it 5? I began to lose track. We played tennis, baseball, and bowling on Wii Sports during that time, but nothing really to get my heart rate where it needs to be to burn fat. My mood has been TERRIBLE though and I was so tired of my annoying family (and not the one that birthed me) that I just wanted to spend the day in bed. But, I didn't - I erxercised instead and guess what? I feel great now! Sure, the knee is hollerin' at me a bit more, but my soul is so much lighter. I can not figure out any evolutionary or even religious reason why we humans do this to ourselves: avoid exercise, get depressed, avoid more, be sad more . . .downward spiral. Any clues on how that behavior could possibly benefit mankind?
Even with the lack of purposeful movement, my weight has remained steady, though. It's just another reinforcement that you don't have to starve yourself to lose weight. Move a little more, eat a little less . . . be at peace. It's almost been a week since the first day of autumn that started the Hot 100 and I'm Not Gonna Blow It challenges in my sidebar. I intend to be down at least a pound or two so I got to move-it-move-it!
