Like pretty much everyone else, I’ve decided to get in shape.
Unfortunately, I can’t go to the gym. Shingles. And the most annoying part is I have to self quarantine because I’ve reached the point of contagious.
Oh well. I got out and walked 2 miles around my subdivision yesterday. It took me 45 minutes and I got almost-lost about a hundred times. I wasn’t terribly worried because I had the app TrackMyRun er… running. It actually maps your progress via GPS on your phone. Because of that it knows where you went and how fast and can even monitor your elevation changes. Totally awesome. I haven’t used it in a while, but I still love it.
Better yet, it auto-dumps all my workouts into MyFitnessPal once you’ve linked the two. MFP is the brains of my weight loss adventure. All my workouts are logged there, and all my foods. It even helps you keep track of how much water you drink and has a barcode scanner for your food. I’ve been known to scan the ingredients for a recipe and then tell it how many it will feed. It’s a great way to get someone(thing) else to do the math for you.
Today I did 20 minutes of gentle yoga, and I may well end up going for another walk later. Just maybe not for so long.
It’s been raining for two weeks.
Yes. I went walking in the rain with a viral infection, a fever, and a handful of “don’t operate heavy machinery” pills slowly dissolving in my stomach.
Rain, snow, sleet, or hail you cannot stop…. my monorail? I can’t make that one rhyme.
