Working Out: THE PAYOFF!

And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24-25 (NIV)

Today was such a great day. I got a good night of sleep and woke up on time to feed us all a nice healthy breakfast. We had orange sweet rolls, diced melons and milk. It was just the right start to an activity-filled day. My cousin and her 15 month old had stayed overnight. He's a good sleeper! I heard him puttering around this morning, but I really didn't hear much of him other than happy little playing sounds.

I didn't have to cough up much gunk this morning, which was nice. I did my stinky Tazacef neb along with HS, and Xopenex, and it was off to the zoo!

Honestly, I had been worried about whether I'd have enough energy for the trip. I didn't know how hot it would get, or if I'd be able to walk that far without resting much. I'm so thrilled to report that I only coughed a little bit, and that was on an EXTREMELY steep slope. It was so steep it took the two of us to push the stroller uphill. Ooof!

All that working out lately has sure paid off. I didn't feel short-winded at all really. I even carried the baby on my shoulders for awhile. I would have carried him longer except he had dropped a shoe and we needed to put it back on.

Here are some photos from the day:

It sounds like you had a great day at the zoo. I had hoped to go to the zoo in Chicago when I was there, but it didn't work out. I visited the Shedd Aquarium instead.

It is so good to see that you are seeing results to your exercising so soon. I must start doing the same to build up some stamina!
Yipee, your working out is paying off :)
