Back in the Saddle

Very happy to report that as promised I hopped back on the yesterday, logged 12,533 steps, equivalent of almost 6 miles. 30 solid minutes on the treadmill at an average of 4.0 mph, burned 200 calories. Yippee! It felt fantastic to get my slacker buns moving again!

Today will be more of the same, also plan to spend some time outdoors as the weather here is gorgeous! But first, Beren and I have to run to Wal-Mart. It seems that the tv I've been using in my "Mom Cave" doesn't have mounting brackets and My Man would rather buy me a new tv than attempt to build a shelf for it. He already spent $$$ on the brackets and thinks it would look much more stylish than anything he could throw together. Believe me, I'm not complaining; we've been working on that room for so long, I really want to get it done and start enjoying it already! I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as it's finished, hopefully this week. *crossing fingers*

Here's my eating plan for today, will be making Arroz con Pollo for Beren.

Hope you're all having a Beauty-Full Day!


  1. Ride baby ride!

    I mean, excellent job on the treadmill efforts. Keep up the good work.

  2. Great to hear you are back on track!!! We all fall off that wagon and horse - but as you know focusing on the bruises from the fall distracts you from getting back on!!! ONWARD!

  3. Thank you, Misunderstood! You're so right, just gotta climb right back on. :)

  4. I too have let my outer pin-up go...So I now i look within for her strength to do what you are doing, here in San Diego.
    I started with a 1 mile walk today and joined a local gym where a friend SWEARS she will take me (she's a member) so no slacking...
    And bought tons of bottled water! it's the sticking to the diet w kids that will be a bigger challenge

  5. Martini Mama, WTG on that walk! One step at a time, right? Hope you're doing well, thank you so much for dropping by! xooxx
