Exercise log 9/10/08

September 10th, 2008 at 04:19 pm

I'm starting a new category in my blog. No, it isn't money related directly but I do feel exercise is vitally important to your well being all around. You can have a vault full of money but if you aren't healthy enough to enjoy it, what's the point.

What really prompted this was my thread about us getting the Wii Fit unit this past Sunday. Someone suggested that in a month, it might be collecting dust like many others. I'm hoping that won't happen and figure that by posting here, I'm helping to make myself accountable to someone.

My wife and I started walking for 30 minutes almost every night about 2 weeks ago. Her reason, of course, had nothing to do with health. She just wanted to make sure she looked good for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at the end of this month. I was happy to walk with her and we've only missed 3 or 4 days in the 2 weeks when we simply weren't home all day.

We got the Wii on Sunday 9/7 and I used it then, 9/8 and 9/9. I have not yet used it today. Not sure if I will or not. DW and DD are out tonight so I took the opportunity to take a solo bike ride, something I haven't done in ages. I did about a 45 minute ride, which was much farther, faster and harder than the rides I normally take with DD. She is an ok rider but doesn't yet have the confidence or endurance to do the kind of ride I did today. So if I don't get on the Wii tonight, I won't feel bad. Heck, I'll consider myself lucky if I can walk when I get up tomorrow.

So that's it for today. I'll keep you posted.

    Good for you. I've been really enjoying my walks - time to listen to some tunes, get some air and vitamin D, even figure out some new routes and sample the different neighborhoods of Seattle. Why drive 50 miles to get a 7 mi hike? Hike the 7 mi from your home to where-ever.

    baselle - I always joke about the folks who drive 15 minutes to the gym to walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes and then drive 15 minutes back home. Why not just step out of your house and take a 30 minute walk and leave the car in the driveway?
