I was doing great, coming in low, but in the evening my hunger was too great to ignore, so I crashed myself with crackers. Still, I have to get above 1800 to feel bad about myself.
I've been to Planet Fitness twice now, and I really like it! It's clean, the personnel is nice, there are tons of machines, and the clients are real people, all ages, shapes and sizes. Wearing T-shirts and sweats, not designer workout wear. Plus, they have free bagels and free pizza once a month! And I got a free T-shirt. What's not to like?
Clearly, I'm not a gym rat. All I want is a place to get some exercise away from the blistering heat (and in winter, the killing frost!).
Next week I will make an appointment with a personal trainer to create a routine on the resistance machines.
As for spending, I did a couple of garage sales this morning. I spent $9 and got an old red delft tile (very cool!), a white plate -- both for me -- and a globe and some nice toys, gifts for the grandchildren.
Getting ready now for an out-of-town baseball game. It's the last game before the playoffs. I don't know if we'll have any more games, as our team has only won one game! But I think we will at least be in the first matchup.
My grandson was hit in the chin by a ball in the last game. It stunned him for a minute, but he was okay. But it was scary for a moment.
I got a text from the power company, reporting on my credit earned so far on the peak savings program. $1.20. Well, better than nothing. Since I haven't been using air conditioning, my normal readings haven't been high, so the only way to save is to turn off the lights and fans for the designated hours. I mistakenly left one fan on, so I guess there is room for improvement!
