Where'd my playtime go?

| No Comments

This exercising thing has eliminated about 1.5 hours from my playtime each day!

Yes, 30 minutes of walking each day takes about 1.5 hours. Why?

  1. 5 minutes: change into I-can-sweat-in-this clothes, use the bathroom
  2. lionelrichie-cominghome.jpg30 minutes: walk on the treadmill while listening to Lionel Richie's Coming Home CD (which has quite a few good walking tracks!) - 2.25+ miles, 330+ calories, 100+ fat calories, speed 3.5-5.5, incline 5.0
  3. 30 minutes: shower, sweat, blow-dry hair, sweat, get dressed, sweat...
  4. for the next 20-30 minutes or so: sweat, sweat, sweat some more, re-dry hair, change into another dry shirt as dinner is decided on, made, and eaten

By 7:15-7:30pm, I can now begin what I had previously started by about 6:00pm each evening... My crochet time has decreased. My play-on-the-computer time has decreased. My relax-on-the-couch time has decreased.

I must remember, however, that I'm gonna feel better - and be healthier - and be less at risk!

Now, if I can just get rid of the stuffy nose and sore throat that started - again! - this morning. My second cold in less than 30 days. Bah!
