Sonia's July Journal

I can't believe it is already JULY!!!
I want to add weights back in to my fitness schedule, work on making healthier eating choices, and drinking more water. I do good getting in enough water on my days off, but I struggle at work. I keep water on my desk, but I go hours without picking it up - maybe because I'm usually frozen ; )

I've had an OK week.
Monday - Nothing
Tuesday July 1st - nothing
Wednesday - 40 mile bike ride - yep I didn't to and from work
Thursday - very little upper body weights - I think I was still wiped out from the ride on Wed. After making the round trip, I don't think it is something that I will be able to do a couple of times a week - it just takes too much time and my schedule isn't always predictable. I still plan on doing it again, but my first trip gave me a good dose of reality.
Friday - 3.5 mile walk/jog
Sat - 3.5 mile walk/jog

There really isn't a good spot to park that would give me much of a ride. The next "park and ride" is only 5 miles from the resort and anywhere between would be just parking beside the road.

Tuesday - Balance exercises on the wii (that's it)
Wednesday - weights
Thursday - weights

It has rained everyday this week! I would have liked to attempt another bike ride, but there was no chance of it. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice, but DH has a lot to do so I'll have to get home as early as possible. Hopefully I can get a good ride in this weekend.

We were supposed to get rain all week too - but only got it on Wed. Hope it clears up for you this weekend for your bike ride.

I'm guessing you still getting your money's worth fromt he Wii Sonia- that's great!! And how handy to have it when it's wet outside- sorry to hear that though. Hopefully it will ease off for the weekend.

Hey Sonia!! I made a deal with Matt that I'd go halves with him on the wii - so I hope he can save his money! LOL


Bummer about the rain, but great job on getting those weight workouts in!
