I was able to do 15 of the "No. 1 Fat Burning Exercise" (see a couple posts back if you don't know what this is). I don't know if I should do them faster for more of an aerobic effect or more slowly for the muscle effect. I think I would rather build more muscle because that affects the resting metabolic rate. Who doesn't want to burn more calories just sitting still? The front of my thighs are where I feel it the most. Now if it doesn't make my back hurt, I'm good to go. I didn't think to take some Ibuprofen before I did this to help prevent the back pain. I'll remember next time.
I have to run the route tomorrow and pick up son #1 at the airport. He is back from Washington state where he has been training ROTC recruits. He has been gone 6 weeks. The grocery bill is about to double. He is in the Army and is a weight lifter. When home, he does all the laundry and hangs it out. He does all the dishes and a lot of the cooking. We have enough wood for winter heat for at least 3 winters because he loves to cut wood.
Still no rain here. Still carrying watering cans all over the creation. Surely it will rain soon.
I went in for a nurse check of my blood pressure and it was 138/76 - so so so much better. It was 193 on the top amount a month ago. Perhaps I can pass the DOT physical now for driving the company car and armored trucks. They only gave me a 3 month extension because it was in the 160's over the 90's when I went for the physical - bummer. The limit to pass is 140 on the top.
