Week two of the Great Cardio Challenge is under way. The Perfect Child recorded 30.04 min. on the "dreadmill" yesterday, so it was up to me to get in gear this morning, since she won't let me translate my pedometer reading for golf miles into minutes of walking. However, just for the record, according to my trusty pedometer, I walk approximately 2.79 miles while playing golf in a cart, and that would equate to about 29.15 min. on the "mill". But, since that won't count, I did my time on the bike this morning.
Just in case you can't read the time clearly, it is 31.33 min. By the way, our first week was a close one. The Perfect Child won the first week with +.185 points. We're working on a point scale for every minute 10 min. over 60 per week, a point is awarded. (Fractions are allowed.) I'm certainly within striking distance. AND, today, just in case I might lose my readout when taking my "break", I took an intermediate time picture just to make sure I'd be legit this week, and not have to beg for mercy like last week. :) Yes, daughter dear, you should expect "breaks" when competing with an old goat like me. :)
Also, I'd like to include a picture of our Farmers' Market. We went again on Saturday morning at 7:30. T'was a cool, crisp morning. Coffee was definitely a must. So much more produce here this week, I was in heaven.
This is about in the middle of the market, and is the main street. It's about 4 1/2 blocks long and has 3 cross streets of about 2 blocks each. My real "find" this weekend was the tomatoes. Believe it or not, they actually taste like tomatoes are supposed to in mid summer. Very tasty.
Aside from the breakfast sandwich that I had at the Farmers' Market, I was pretty good with my food choices this weekend. My beverages, however, were of the adult variety, and perhaps entered into my food diary a bit too often. BUT, that said, I'm hopeful that all the mileage and calories I amassed by playing golf and walking the Market will translate into at least a holding pattern with my weigh in on Wed. We'll see if I can justify a little toddy or two by playing golf. I think I should get something for not having a pile of French fries and nacho cheese sauce like I did last weekend......baby steps, I guess.
