Thank you all so much for your kind words about my cracked rib. Hubby feels very bad for giving me such a big bear hug but we have hugged that way for years and it really wasn't his fault. You can read his story here if you want to. I am healing nicely and it's not like I've never broken anything before. I have osteoporosis and yes I am taking something for it but I break. So far I have broken all my toes, all my fingers, my upper jaw and my ribs 3 times (one of the ribs twice now) See most people hear about this illness and think "Oh my they will break a hip some day". Well, maybe, but the little bones will break first. So I'm getting use to this and I have determined that it will not slow me down.
Any how this weekend we were suppose to get 2-4 inches of snow so we hunkered down and worked on house hold stuff and by that I mean the baby quilt! It is the most important thing on my mind right now! Baby coming in about 5 weeks! However the snow really never amounted to anything over 1/2 inch but hay I was ready for it.
|And it can work my arms as well!|
I got to tell you all so far I'm enjoying this 400 mile challenge. The weather has not cooperated much so walking outside has has been subbed by riding the stationary biking. After all even though we didn't get much snow it was wicked cold and I don't do cold! Our bike has a monitor that tells us how many miles we have gone so it's mile for mile here! Wearing a pedometer allowed me to clock miles while I went about doing what I normally did, after all the idea here to get moving so all miles count so walking around work/ home should count as well right? So I'm counting my miles Saturday-Saturday and so my total for this week is 37. Now all those miles are broken up by walking (inside/ outside) - biking - free weights & using the Wii system step aerobics. I borrowed the "Just Dance 1" from a friend and I must say that 15 minutes of that MUST count as a mile because I am dancing my butt off! I think I'll go get the volume 2 and we can share. Or Maybe the Zumba DVD? Has anyone tried that one? What did you think? I also have added a side bar to the right to keep track of how I'm doing.
See I get board easily so I really do have to mix up my routine or I'll go nuts! And Hubby would not like that at all. So how was your week and how is your 400 mile challenge going?
