Tote that barge, lift that bale

I went back to the gym today.

Ow ow ow ow ow.

I did Mini Body Sculpt, a half-hour exercise program. And how long I was away from the gym showed in how many people commented on my braces.

They have been off forever!

I kept lying and saying they had just come off. Hee hee.

But then I got on my mat with my weights and it all showed, how long I had been away.

I am trying to exercise because I belong to this Web site where you enter what you eat and what you do. I felt guilty entering no exercise into the Exercise Log so it is time to start.

One bright thing about this log, if you cook dinner, you can enter that as exercise. Cooking burns 115 calories an hour. That is what this site says.

If you play the piano, that is exercise too! Playing the piano burns 143 calories an hour. Wow, playing the piano burns more calories than cooking? Who would have guessed that? Leonard Pennario used to burn almost 300 calories a day just from practicing.

Playing the accordion burns only 103 calories.

However if you play trombone for an hour you skyrocket up to 201.

I should take up trombone!

Take up trombone playing? Why not become a 'one-man' (err... a one-woman) band. Just think how good that would look on the log!
