Hi there Journal & Friends,
Another week has flown by and it's time for the Week 2 report on The Perfect 10 Challenge, started by South Beach Steve (here).
My goals for the challenge were:
To exercise 6 days per week.
1. Exercise with my Richard Simmons DVD's 3 days out of each week. Done, except I switched out two days with Billy Blanks Tae Bo. Even modifying it for my level, it was a blast!
2. Exercise on my mini-trampoline 4 days out of each week. Done.
3. As I get stronger, lengthen the time spent on each mini-tramp session. Did that last week, but not this week... though my sessions were done with better posture and more awareness of working the muscles. So, overall I feel good about them.
Whenever I exercise with Richard Simmons DVD's, it's like a signal to the cats: play time! They get all jazzed. So I got my camera ready, to show you my exercise session. Naturally, point a camera at a cat and they quit acting silly and cop an attitude!
First, the TV, in front of me:
Now, to my left:
Now, to my right:
And when they are not staring at the camera, they think I am playing with them as my hands are waving around, and they get squirelly. Too funny!
I almost forgot... for the challenge we tell one thing about ourselves that you didn't know:
I have a "cat whisker" collection.
Yes, you read that right... real cat whiskers. I've had cats all my life, and about 28 years ago I decided not to throw away the stray whiskers they shed. You don't find them often, so my collection is small. But I have some from all the kitties I have had for the last 28 years. They are small, long, thick and thin... gray, black, white, and even some sort of speckled ones. I always thought I might make teensy paint brushes out of them... but no... now they are just my sentimental collection. :-)
PS: MyGuy took off work cuz it's my Birthday today. So we are off this afternoon to have an adventure! Yay to adventures. :-)
