Trip to Denver

On August 31, I went to Denver to visit my younger sister, Jann. I was there five wonderful days! What a great little break I had. Although it wasn't a long time, it felt like a real vacation.

My sister was a very gracious hostess. I was able to make my green smoothies every day: we went out to places to eat where I could get a nice salad; we had a pedicure; we took morning walks around different lakes; we went to the movies to see The Time Traveler's Wife, we worked out at her gym, and last, but not least, she gave me a hot stone massage one day, and the next day she gave me an ionic foot spa (detox) and reflexology on my feet and hands.

I even got in a little reading in in addition to what I read on trip to and from Denver--I read two paperbacks.

The weather was gorgeous. Most days it was in the 70s. It seemed cooler at night. The last day it was 66 and overcast. It felt like fall. I wore my cotton sweater a lot since I'm used to the sub-tropics of South Florida. It was a nice change for me.

I'm back to the sweltering weather in Florida, but that is o.k. with me. I love my hot weather. And anyway, I'm inside a lot. Also, I much prefer the heat of summer in South Florida to the cold of winter up north!

Thanks, Jann, for the memorable visit!

New Gym

I switched gyms last Wednesday. I now belong to LA Fitness and absolutely love it! It is a big difference from the gym I belonged to. It just opened the end of April, so it is everything is so new. I've been really pumped ever since joining.

Out of five days, I've gone four days--but I've been five times. I've changed my workout schedule. Instead of just alternating upper and lower body exercises, I'll do a push/pull 3-day split routine. I'll take at least one day off a week and on other days, I'll take a yoga or pilates class, water exercise or just cardio. I'll continue to stretch after every workout.

I know I'll be pushing my fitness to the next level.

I'm also happy that this gym is closer. It is only about a mile from where I live.
