Saturday

Day three: I worked out. Today I added weights. I do chest, back, quads, hamstrings, calves, biceps, triceps and abdominals. I also did a cardio workout because I enjoy them, even though I've been told that I should not be doing a cardio workout each day (fitness gurus out there: tell me why?)  I don't think that I will enjoy weights, but they are a necessary evil.

It's still cold and snowing here. It's been a rough week here, weatherwise, but not so rough as Australia's Tropical Storm Oswald. Jeanie's town was hit by tornadoes and they are without power. BB's neck of the woods is once again dealing with flooding. Be safe, Oz peoples.

Tomorrow afternoon, we will head to Erie to visit my cousin who has miraculously begun to come around after being in a medically induced coma and ICU since like December 16th. After the first of the year, he began to show signs of improvement, and now he is in a rehab. Calls for one wang-doodle of a family celebration, don't you think?

Saturday is housework day at chez Debby and Tim, so let me get back to it.

I've heard that you CAN do cardio every day. It's weight training that should be done every other day to allow the muscles time to recover. I loved doing the weight training, and the best part is, if you're consistent (every other day) you will see results in six weeks. Significant results. Now those are the kind of guns I can get behind.

I think the most important thing is to just keep doing something, isn't it?

I consider housework my workout. I did a very good workout yesterday - celebrating the return of electricity and feeling helpless as the next town over "celebrates" its highest river level on record.

Your situation there is really quite awful. And guess what...yesterday Bundaberg finally made OUR local newspaper.

Hey there stranger - thanks for the thoughts are we are recovering over here. Many will only recovery after many months of rebuilding and some, never.

Glad those workouts are making a difference. I SO need to do that.

My workout is chasing mozzies away at the moment. Does that count?
