Exercise?! Walking added...

Opps I forgot to take my pulse while I was out to see if I got my target heart rate while doing exercise.

To figure your target heart rate:
220 - age = example mine is 220-36= 184

Now... take
184 X .60 = 158 (and some change)
and
184 X .40 = 110 (and some change)

In between those two numbers is what my "working" heart rate should be when I am out doing some sort of cardio vascular exercise.

Today I went on a 20 minute walk. And tomorrow when I go on my walk I will take pictures of some of the local "yard art". I have to walk in the mornings, as its gets just plain ROASTING HOT by mid afternoon here. We have been having 100+* weather here. That's farienheit folks -- and there is no place to cool off except in the house.

I did stretch out last night, however, since I was with the client and she took notion to "stretch" with me I am going to have to be more cautious as she is not as agile as she thinks she is. Speaking of which, I was not as agile myself. In fact I was quite stiff and clumsy. I stretched out carefully anyway. I was not able to reach my toes even after warming up some. But there will be off days -- and last night was definitely one of them.

In other news, we got a top load washer. And have decided that a top load is a better option for us over a front load.

Have a great afternoon everyone! I am off and stretching, cleaning and other daily chores!
