Well me boobs might be 'just fine'... but right now the left one is bloody sore!
Freaking mammogram machines are brutal.  Well... 2 weeks ago it wasn't so bad, but after yesterdays multiple exams and 'squishes'... I'm sore.

So, being a bit careful what I do today.  Sneezing hurts, moving my arm too much hurts.  But, I'm thankful I'm just sore and not facing anything else.

I must admit to eating a 'few' jellybeans yesterday.  I won't say it was 'stress eating', more YAAAA eating!  lol

Today... I'm going to get on the treadmill and exercycle and undo the damage.  And get me steps up to 7,000 today.   Yesterday I went to bed on about 6,000 steps.
I'm finding it hard to past 6,000 at the moment.

I'm starting to see a pattern.  I'm active from 8 am to about 12 midday.   Then NOT MUCH from then till about 4 pm when I get the washing in, prepare dinner etc.

Then I'm inactive again after dinner till bedtime.
I need to think of ways to get some exercise in those inactive times.  

Right.   I'm off to start the day, bring it on.


10.08 am:   And I've just done 20 minutes on the treadmill and 15 minutes on the exercycle.  Not a bad start to the day.  I'm hoping to do the same tonight.

Right now I'm going to go out and find something for Father's Day for me man.

11.49 am:  Before I left for the mall I'd done 3,800 steps.
After shopping the length and breadth of Sylvia Park my total is now 6,436 steps.  


Shopping is good for you!  Yes it is.  *smiles*

Talking of shopping... I did get something for Father's Day... and another couple of things:

 ABOVE:  Finally!   Pinocchio!   He's a special edition to Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Disney.  We've been waiting for him since May.
He's utterly gorgeous.  

ABOVE:  A bit more boring, but I really needed some pot mitts.  I've been using tea towels to get stuff out of the oven for years.  I hope these last, but then... they were half price.  SCORE.

I had a lovely time shopping and walking today.

End of Day:  we had a lovely dinner out at Carl's Junior tonight, then spent the evening watching some good TV programmes.

  1. Don't stress. It's actually better to do your exercise early in the day before breakfast. Boots metabolism and you lose weight more efficiently. :) Well done you!
