Much harder to use Spark when my internet
Monday, July 16, 2012
connection keeps going down! And then a couple of hours ago I tried to open my SparkPage and was told it wasn't available, to try again later! Arrrgh! I'm hoping the cable company is updating their equipment and it's not some kind of problem on my line. I do need to call, this has been going on for almost a week now. They have one of those phone system menus that's so annoying that by the time you speak to an actual person you're either really agitated or you've forgotten why you called! Maybe they do that on purpose?
I'm not sure it would be as annoying if I had slept more than 4 hours last night. I was doing so well. My sleeping 7 hours or more a night streak was at 7 days in a row! I can't believe that I used to sleep 4 or 5 hours a night at least five nights a week. Now I know why I couldn't function well. It took me over an hour to fix breakfast this morning. Well, really it was more like lunch by the time I was done. It would have been even later if my husband hadn't helped me. Yikes! It's really good that this is a rest day.
Other than the above, I'm doing really well. Especially now that the temperature has dropped 10 degrees. Now I can exercise more. In fact, I need to start using heavier weights for my ST. Yeah!
Since I started SparkPeople I've been walking on the treadmill five to seven times a week. I have never included the 5 minute warm up and the 5 minute cool down in my walking time. I think I should but I don't know how. Do I say that I walked 3 mph for 30 minutes and then estimate the average mph for those 10 minutes or do I say I walked 40 minutes at 3mph? I put in the time, so shouldn't it count?
