kauricat: (weights)
Tonight's workout was harder! My legs are a LOT weaker than I had thought. We did squats, lunges, leg extensions, and standing calf raises. The lunges nearly killed me and I was not holding any weight. Very sad panda here.

But I did it, mostly (I did not go down as far as I should have, but I did all the reps), and it's only going to improve from here.

Tomorrow and Friday are going to suuuuuuuuuuuck.

But right now I feel pretty good. I'm about ready for my epsom salt soak and then bed.

Pie spent a lot of time walking around trying to figure what we were doing and why. I don't think he was satisfied with anything he discovered; humans are just silly. As long as we keep filling the food bowl he'll probably accept nightly weights just fine.

I think it's a really good thing I'm coming up on three rest days. We'll go walk at the zoo one of those days at least, but aside from that and maybe a walk to get something to eat, we're going to lay off the exercise.

The edger does not count as exercise; that's yard work. Totally different. LOL
kauricat: (house)
Today I got a text from Pres Man. It said "The good news is that I put the cover back on the basement window. The bad news is it was a day late."

Yes, we had water come in through a basement window in last night's downpour. We had taken the cover off the window well when the plumber came because he had to replace the spigot, which is normally under the window cover.

Annnnnd then we did not put it back. We keep thinking we'll find a different type of window cover, because Pres Man thinks the ones we have look ghetto. But our house apparently has a bigger than normal escape window or something, because all the ones we can find in the home stores are not big enough.

Anyway, it's back on now and Pres Man had already pulled out the stuff and sucked up the water by the time I got home. He also set up the dehumidifier, and everything looks like it's okay now.

Man, I think I'm going to sleep really well tonight. I am already feeling a little sore. But happy. I worked out! Again! And I was under my calories by a significant number.
