So, our "cook supper" plan keeps getting screwed up. Tuesday night I had a Computer User Group Meeting and if I hadn't had that meeting, I would have had to clean dog kennels. Wednesday night (last night) I cooked a fabulous Penne Pasta with Ricotta and vegetables. It was very tasty, husband was pleased, dogs were excited, and Evan got full WITHOUT MEAT! Amazing eh?
Then I put on my M&M suit and walked on the treadmill for 8 minutes. Oh and I made Chocolate Cupcakes for my boss's birthday today, and then frosted them with pretty pink frosting. Then I had to eat 3 of them because they were lopsided.
Oh yeah, M&M suit, I should explain. I told Cari this story and she laughed, so that must mean that it is funny. When I do yoga, I like to feel zen. It's hard to feel zen when your underwear are bugging you and your bra is pinching you. So I bought a bootcut unitard. It is like a tank top that goes right into pants, and it is comfortable and stretchy and it works great for yoga and excercise in general. Problem is, I am not skinny enough to be wearing a unitard so I look like an M&M with arms and Legs. Round body. That's me. So when I excercise, I put on my M&M suit, close the blinds, and walk on the treadmill or do yoga or whatever. So I call it my M&M suit. Better than an S&M suit, eh?
So anyway, it was like 10:30pm and I wore my M&M suit and Ryka Aerobics shoes for the like 20 minutes while I walked on the treadmill and then frosted cupcakes. So tonight I anticipate donning the M&M suit again and walking on the treadmill. I need to start with short intervals and increase as I get into shape. Right now my legs get tired walking at that fast of a pace, and that late at night, and I can't go too long without getting rubber legs. So 8 minutes. I hope to increase that so that I can eventually walk for like an hour. my goal is 30 continuous minutes by the end of January and 1 hour by the end of February.
I walked last night while watching Nanny 911 and the beginning of that 70's show. Tonight is The O.C. followed by Reunion, so I plan on trying intervals this evening. Like walk for 10, break for 10 or 15, then wallk for 10 again. If I do this, I may eventually get to a continuous walk routine. I mean, before winter hit, I used to take my iPod and walk around Princeton for 30 minutes during my lunch. I would walk at a brisk pace, but it is different on a treadmill. Don't know why. I am probably going a bit faster and at a constant uphill. But after 8 minutes I was warmed up and getting that excercise high and the tingling legs and feet! Yeah! My heart DOTH still beat! So please do not visit while I am wearing my M&M suit. I won't answer the door. and if you see the shadow of a walking M&M behind the blinds, that's just me. And just if you are curious, I am a green M&M at heart. And I melt for no one.
