Today I turn 41 and a half. I'm not where I expected to be at this point, but that is probably a post for another day.

For the past several months I've (finally) been making an effort to get into better shape. Exercise and weight loss have been on the "things I should do" to help cholesterol, sleep apnea, and depression. I've tried several times in the past to start something, but I was never able to get to the point where it would be part of my schedule.

But this one seems to be working. )

We used to do brunch and a movie (mmm...Strongbow on tap apple juice for breakfast), but Kildare's is closed and I need more exercise... so a walk and a movie is planned for this Sunday. Leave my house some time after 10 am, walk over to Regal Oaks for the 12:05 showing of Red, then after the movie, grab some food and walk back home. The walk is about 3.7 miles on the Schuylkill River Trail each way.

Anyone is welcome to join me for both or just meet me at the movie. Just let me know.

Look at that - I've got weekend plans :) If anyone would like to join me for some or all, let me know. I've bought my movie tickets already, so if you want to hit one of the shows you'll need to pick up tickets on your own. So far [livejournal.com profile] complexated will be joining me for the movies on Sunday and maybe the walk Saturday.

Saturday
- 8 AM Walking (leaving my house, walk to VF Park, doing the 5 mile loop, then back home - Google says about 7 miles total)
- Noon Gaming @ La Taverna & Cactus Grill near Valley Forge (Seize Your Turn)
- 7:30 PM Outrage (109 min) @ Ritz Five E
- 10:15 PM Outcast (94 min) @ Ritz Five E

Sunday
- 12:00 PM The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (152 min) @ Prince Music Theater
- 3:00 PM The Girl Who Played with Fire (129 min) @ Prince Music Theater
- 5:45 PM The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (148 min) @ Prince Music Theater

It's another quiet day here - everyone else is out of the office, so I'm left to my own devices.  Mostly, I'm doing some work on a web site for Sonic Tech and pulling together my lists of things to do.

I've visited the gym three times now (well four if you count the visit on Monday where I just talked to them).  The first two workouts were about half an hour on the weight machines and then onto a tredmill or eliptic walker.  The first day had no problems, but the Wednesday really beat up my arms.  I familiar with them being sore after a lot of heavy lifting or something simular, but this was different.  On Thursday, my left arm was almost tender in spots, hurting if I tried to extend it all the way or close it.  I only did the eliptic walker thing (need to figure out their names some day...) and the tredmill that day.  Now today my right arm has joined my left one (which is a little better) in hurting.  I was originally planning to go back today and then take the weekend off, but I think I'll take tonight and Saturday off, and try to go in Sunday morning.
