Ramping Up

I'm trying to keep this forward momentum going. I have slowly been ramping up my activity level. Today I took an easy spin class, 45 minutes without putting on too much resistance. I was sweating! I then did all my knee exercises, and both an upper and lower body workout. It took some time because I had to adjust my weights some and modify certain exercises to minimize knee risk. In between, I did lots of stretching. By the time I showered and headed for home, I had been at the gym for over 3 hours. It just felt so good that I kept going, saying hello to all my people, watching the trainers for interesting exercises and then trying them, and then letting the hot water cascade over my weary muscles! It felt awesome.

Last night we went to see An Evening with Colin Mockrie and Brad Sherwood. These are 2 of the guys from Whose Line Is It and they do improv comedy. It was hilarious. It's been a long time since I laughed that hard. It is getting more difficult to find events that all 4 of us want to attend. (the kids have different tastes in music and theatre). I so enjoyed being together and hearing all 4 of us laughing out loud.

Sounds like a great workout. You make me feel like an absolute slacker. Okay, well I was today but so what!!!

I love those 2 guys, they are so funny. Whose line is it anyway? was one of my very favorite shows. I watch it whenever I find it in reruns.

I'm jumping on the I love those guys bandwagon as well. And I have actually seen a whole lot more improv and comedy this year than perhaps my entire life! Good idea for a family outing definitely.

3 hours at the gym!?! Wow woman! Very well done.

I also wanted to say thanks for your supportive comments on my blog. I really means a lot to me to have people out there who read and get something out of what I write. You are right about getting a more objective perspective from people other than your family and friends.
