The parameters are set, the contestants are rarin' to go, and the stakes have been agreed upon. The Perfect Child and I have agreed to a competition (friendly, perhaps, but I doubt it) regarding our cardio workouts. We'd ask The Primary Child to join us, but he is already a runner and perhaps would skew our plans in his favor. Neither the Perfect Child nor I have really kept a close eye on what we do for cardio. It's kinda been a "catch as catch can" affair for us both. So last night we decided upon a challenge to get us both on track, and to get us motivated. (We are both motivationally challenged.) Our challenge runs from Sunday to Saturday each week until Aug. 1. We have committed to 60 min. of cardio per week until June 1, at which time we will revisit the duration of our cardio workout, and hopefully up the time accordingly. Then we will report in by way of our blogs. We'll take pictures of our chosen machine's timer and post it in our blog. I'm giving her a pass for the 32 min. she said she did yesterday at the gym. I trust her to be honest....just this once. All else will require the proper documentation. :) Now, my challenge will be to learn how to post pictures in this darned blog of mine. The Perfect Child claims I can do it with either my crackberry or a digital camera. I think I know how, so we'll see how that goes. Hope it is as easy as it appears to be. :) So now, darling daughter, GAME ON!!! The loser must buy a gift card at the winner's favorite store.....I think I'll chose Whole Foods!!
Saturday marked the opening of our Farmers Market!! What a joy!! We got down there nice and early, so we could browse and still make our 11:00 tee time. First big win was when I bypassed the giant breakfast burrito stand. 35 min after the opening of the Market there were still at least 50 people in line for a burrito!! We walked to the other end of the market and found a lovely little breakfast sandwich, instead. 430 calories by my count, so I figured golf would wear that off. 20,000 people come to the Farmers Market here each week, so it pays to get there early. There were even tomatoes!!! They were offering samples to prove that the tomatoes were not the usual winter, mealy, watery tasting ones we generally have at this time of year. We stood right by the tomatoes and the samples, bought cilantro and asparagus then walked on our merry way. That, after just mere seconds before telling Hubby Dearest I wanted to try the tomatoes and maybe get a couple. Talk about a Senior Moment!!! How dumb did I feel when we got to the car and I had no tomatoes.....however, I did get two heirloom tomato plants, so I'm pretty excited about that. I'm off to get my herbs today, so I'm really trying to get Spring to get sprung around here.
Got out 3 trees planted Sat. after golf. Had only planned on doing one, but they went in so easily that we did all three Sat. afternoon. They really look nice. Adds a splash of color in the back, so that's nice. Maybe I'll try a picture of those to get the hang of this "techie" stuff.
Not much to report in regard to my food and exercise for the weekend. Kinda the same old stuff. Ate pretty well, enjoyed an adult beverage, or two, played golf, planted trees, and walked the Farmers Market for an hour. Geez, am I ever boring. Just reading about my weekend almost put me to sleep at the keyboard. ZZZzzzzzz!
