Two Retirees in the house

As I wrote on my other blog, now that Harold is home during the day, our routines need to be adjusted. Him being here is going to be good because while I may be able to rationalize to myself about skipping a workout, he won't buy it. LOL! He does his stint as soon as he gets up. Then when he's done, I do mine. Soooooo, I got my half hour in this morning. My HRM is giving me tons of grief. Today when I went to save my workout, it totally deleted it. Grrrr. But I think I remember what the readings were.

Daily stats:
Type: Treadmill

Route: Manual controls
Time: 30 minutes: 117
Max heart rate: 139
Calories burned: 222

Yesterday ended the 3 day celebration of Harold's retirement. My food choices were not the best yesterday. Today I am back on track and inspired by the results posted on the BL blog edition. Congratulations to Shari, Angie, and TJ from Team Angie!!! I am looking forward to seeing a loss posted after my name next week!!!
For Christmas we all chipped in and bought Nina a WII Fit. I've been reading rave reviews and I have decided that I want one. However, I have tons of workout videos so I really can't justify spending the money. What I'm going to do is list those videos for sale on Amazon and use the money toward a WII fit.

Now I am off read the blogs and get some stuff done.
12:38 pm update
I bought a WII FIT off of Ebay. I know, I am a big wimp. LOL! I had forgotten that when I got my last paycheck from the school, I was going to get something special. What do you know, there was enough in the paycheck to pay for the WII FIT. I would never have discovered this if I had not been doing my Flylady mission of cleaning out my closet. I had tucked the loot in there and found it when I was decluttering the closet floor. I know that virtue is its own reward, but this was pretty cool too! But I have sold one of my workout videos. And I will still list them.

Have a great day all.


  1. Wow! What an adjustment period you will be going thru. But you'll do it. And its great if hubby being home helps you get your workout in. I just stumbled across your blog the other day. I'm a crafty person myself LOL! Right now i'm in the middle of making a totebag for my daughter but i'm going to enter it in the craft competition at our rodeo next month before i give it to her. HEe hee... :) Hope you have a great week! Jinx

  2. It is a big adjustment, but neither of us ever really wanted to work off the farm. We're going back to the lifestyle we started with - minus 4 kids. :)

  3. It's great that your hubby works out and that helps keep you on track, rather than the opposite. And I'm totally jealous of your retiree status. :)

  4. LOL! Don't be too jealous, we have both just stepped down from having 2 full time jobs each to having one full time job each.

  5. The Wii fit is a ton of fun ! As to the retirement, that is one phase of life I both look forward to and dread. Hubby and I are very good friends and very compatible, but I worry tha we will drive each other nuts when he retires !
