Cardio Challenge-Day 1

Whew!! Got day one in the books. And, may I add, it was after 18 holes of golf. I have now officially earned the adult beverage I am going to have with my Mexican dinner. As you can see, the picture isn't very clear, but the figures are almost legible. 26.08 min @ 2.3 mph. I grant you the mph ain't grand, but after golf, I thought it was acceptable.

Yesterday, The Perfect Child posted her first salvo in the war of the Cardio Queens. I am not going to stoop so low as to go on the offensive.....yet. But she is absolutely right, this could get ugly!! :) And before she says it, I did NOT do as many minutes as she did, BUT I, at least, have visual proof of my accomplishments. HA!! Geez, we don't sound like 6 year olds or anything do we?? Plus I want extra credit for finding my picture file in less than 1 hour today.

Today was our opening day for women's golf at the club. Breakfast was Eggs Benedict and fruit, with a pile of has browns. Plus....the club has THE most wonderful sticky cinnamon pecan rolls ever!! I really behaved myself, too. Before I could get in any real trouble, I gave away my sticky roll, pushed my hash browns off to the side, slid the egg, canadian bacon, tomato and a little hollendaise off the english muffin before I dug in. They were also kind enough to bring me a little extra fruit. No time for lunch afterward, so I came home and "made" a quick Lean Cuisine. So far, so good.

Since it took me so darned long to find my treadmill files, I didn't have time to finish my herb plantings. Hopefully, the rain that's on its way will hold off until I finish this post and get my clothes changed. But, then again, I might just collapse in a chair instead. :)


  1. Let me be the first to say congrats on the 26 minutes of cardio. You know that pace doesn't matter so don't sweat it, so to speak. :) Bigger kudos to you for resisting the breakfast goodies at the club - I don't know that I could have been that strong.

  2. A challenge with your daughter sounds like a lot of fun! Glad you visited my blog and hope you come by again. I've put yours in my fav folder so I can keep track of your challenge. :-D

  3. Oh, and by the way, I was born and raised in Iowa! Spirit Lake was our last residence there. :-) I'm a Colorado gal now, though.

  4. Congrats on an excellent first work out of the challenge. I love that you and Perfect Child have such a fun relationship!

    You didn't eat the hash browns??? Whoa...color me impressed!

  5. Sounds like a good day - you stayed strong in all the right places. Golf AND dreadmill?!!! You are hardcore!

  6. Congrats on successful first day! Great job!!!!
