I walked the 2 miles this morning, but it took 44 minutes and I wasn't able to continue the activity with an exercise video when I got home. I'll keep my options open and may use a video later in the day.
I did use a video in the mid-afternoon: Leslie Sansone's Brisk 2-Mile Walk. This is the 2nd of her DVDs I've done, having done the 1-mile walk a few days ago. This is very doable. It's easy to follow while still getting my heart rate up. Besides the walk-in-place move she includes side-to-side movement, knee raises, leg kicks, spreading the legs out a bit and back kicks to vary the walk and add interest. She uses the stretchie with this one, too, to add a bit of arm motion and resistance. I just moved my arms without the stretchie, but I bought a set of 3 this afternoon and will incorporate that next time. I think adding more of her videos to my rotation would be a good idea.
We waited about an hour after supper and took a 30-minute stroll -about 1 1/2 miles. My heart rate was 119 half-way through and 120 when we finished.
I bought a few other things today besides the stretchie. I bought a simple analog bathroom scale, a wrist watch-style heart rate monitor, a pair of 1-pound ankle weights and a couple of 3-pound hex weights. I also bought a basic Pilates DVD to give to my sister and niece for Christmas.
I had raisin bran with 1/4 cup extra raisins, hot tea and water for breakfast. Lunch was 1/2 turkey sandwich on regular sandwich bread with lettuce, tomato and sliced mushroom; some fritos and salsa; water; and Sugar Smacks. Supper was 3 bean tacos (soft shell) with lettuce, tomato and mushroom and water. I had Sugar Smacks and coffee for a bedtime snack. I'm having a cup of hot tea now.
