I can't believe today was my last Saturday. Wooo Hooo!
I am so excited, but nervous. Today The husband, my sister, and I went into Manhattan to visit the American Museum of Natural History. We took the train from Secaucus, the subway uptown, and we walked around there for the day. Then we took a cab down to Little Italy and they had a great dinner and I drank an entire large bottle of mineral water myself. Then we decided it was nice out and we walked from Little Italy to Penn Station. I just took my pedometer off and we walked 21610 steps today, about 8 miles....if my pedometer was registering all the steps.
This brings me to the next item of before and after -- stamina. I walked today and didn't give into the cab or subway on the way back. I would have not been able or willing to do that walk 2 months ago. At least not in the hard pounding of the museum then walk throughout the city. Call me lazy, but the pounding on my knees and back would not have been worth it. As it is, right now my feet are sore.
Even outside today, I joined a gym Wednesday and went 2x on Thursday and again yesterday, an hour or more each time. I even did a little jog (for a minute) on the treadmill yesterday. I haven't used my rescue inhaler at the gym yet. It is amazing. I could have worn that inhaler around my neck 2 months back. Now, it was in the bottom of my bag for days. I am thankful.
