Good Day

Had a great day….got a good work out in the pool…..I asked David over at Chape, he’s a trainer,  (if you haven’t checked out his blog I think you should!! He has great work out ideas… )   https://chapeblog.wordpress.com/

Anyway he said for every step in the pool it counts about 10 outside steps…way cool…I was wondering as people are very focused on getting there 10,000 steps in each day, and with an arthritic knee I am no where near that number, lucky if I get to a thousand….so I asked and he was very kind to get right back to me…so with the resistance in the water I can get in about 3 to 4 thousand steps, so that’s a great workout for me…….pretty good considering  !!  So thanks David!!!  I have been using the water weight buoys at the pool, with the water acting as resistance I think I am getting a good arm work out as well… and have found that I am also continuing working out at home…probably not as much as I should be, but still trying to get a few weights in….however working up a good sweat at home just vacuuming and cleaning is worth something…LOL

At 1500 calories…I made a pot of black beans and added fresh cut corn off the cob at the end, along with celery, carrots, and onions…..made great taco’s….thanks to Cheryl over at “Cheffie Cooks”  https://clwiser.wordpress.com/  she gave me a great idea and I ran with it this morning…LOL  if your looking for great recipes, made with fresh products, go check her out…she’s also a sweetheart!!!

Life’s good in the desert…getting warmer this week…I leave you with a few quotes….
