I wore my lucky socks to Step class today.
I also wore a grey tennis skirt, an orange top, and my Skechers shoes with the pink and orange laces.
I surprised myself today. I wanted to save my knees so I grabbed the old "baby bench". Couldn't do it! I had to grab a regular bench after 5 minutes in. My knees sure didn't thank me, but the rest of the workout felt better after that. I ended up taking more rests (marching in place) than I usually do, though.
The other thing I did today was spend some time on the treadmill before Step class. You would not believe how slow I went, though. That was totally on purpose, because I was saving my energy for the class. In fact, I spent the first half of my treadmill walk multitasking by playing a game on my iPhone while I was walking -- that's how slow I was going. Then the good music came on and I put the game away and sped things up a bit. All the way up to 3 mph, haha!*
My FitBit stats are off the charts today. Well, by my usual standards I mean. I haven't seen numbers this good since we walked all over Paris and London on our vacation earlier this summer.
I am yearning to go back, but I also want to go back to Hawaii.
The only time I went to Hawaii was when my hip was bothering me. It was just before I started having to use a cane, but my hip was really bad and I couldn't walk far. I nearly cried when I was in the hotel with my son (DH was at a conference) and I overheard a fit mother and her kids talking about how they were going to walk to the zoo that morning. The zoo was only a mile away, but it may as well have been the moon for all the walking I could do at that time. My other thing I want to do in Hawaii is climb Diamond Head. We could see it not too far in the distance from the beach at the hotel.
So, today's imaginary problem is planning where to go on vacation, Paris or Hawaii.
* That's still slow, just not slow enough for me to multitask.
