The shoes were made for walking . . . and walkin’s what they’ll do . . .

So I walk two miles a day on our treadmill, Monday to Friday. I lift some weights, and do sit ups, too. We have an exercise room and sauna (of which I haven’t quite figured out how to use, but I should come winter when I’m cold.) I just bought my third pair of Asic tennis shoes. These are the gel Kayano’s. I wore the other two pairs out. One pair from doing yard work. I don’t really wear tennis shoes other than when I’m exercising or working in my planters.

To make the time pass, my hubby mounted a wall TV with a DVD player in it for me. My recent viewings have been:


The Tudors. I can’t rave enough about this series. I’m counting the days until December 30 when Season 2 is released. This series was good for about a 6 pound weight loss. I was enamored by the costumes, the dialogue, the story–even though we all know about Henry and his wives. The casting is excellent and I couldn’t wait to get out on the treadmill to see what was going to happen next.


The Thorn Birds. An oldy but goody. I watched this years ago on TV. Watching it now, as an adult . . . I couldn’t help almost thinking there was an icky feel to it. Father Ralph almost bordered on pervy when Meggie was a child. I may have only lost 1-2 pounds watching this mini-series.


Lost. Everyone has raved about this show to me so I decided to give it a try. The first five minutes hooked me. I may have only lost about 1 pound since starting this bad boy, but so far, so good. I’m on episode four. I’m wondering what’s in the forest. I’m guessing like a morphed dinosaur or something.

DVDs I stared, but failed to get into. James Michner’s Centennial. Another oldie that I remember loving on network TV. It felt too dated to me this time around. The Girls Next Door on my daughters’ big thumbs up. Two episodes and I felt like I was on a saccharin overdose. Honestly, those young girls can’t possibly think the Hef is such a stud.

Those of you who regularly follow my blog, will recall me trying to fit into that fabulous gold dress. I’m close(r), but no cigar. The cut of that Kay Unger is a bit teeny in the boobage area. I’m still trying. To date – 12 pounds lost. And watching “Lost” should motivate me to lose more. There’s like a bazillion episodes for me to watch that I still have to go through.

After Lost, I’m not sure what I’ll watch. Any suggestions? I heard House was pretty good.
