Activity 06/02 - 06/08

I had a pretty good week activity-wise. 

Monday - Morning spin. I spun in the morning doing 25 rounds of 1 standing and 1 down.  Good and sweaty. 
Monday - Walked 1.5 miles after work.
Tuesday - I walked on the gazelle in the morning for 35 minutes. I have no idea how to estimate mileage on that type machine.
Wednesday - 46 minutes spinning. Nice steady zone 2.
Thursday - I took the day off from exercise although I went to the blood center and donated a double of platelets (big double - 8.8). I am trying to catch up after 3 months off (2 months deferred and then trouble getting scheduled).  I still want to donate at least 12 times this year if not more.
Friday - 3.9 miles. I took the day off Friday for a variety of reasons.  I walked to the grocery store in 100% humidity. 
Friday - Tree sawing.  I sawed down 3 trees and chopped up the branches.
Saturday - I meant to work out but it just couldn't fit into the day.  My wife was sick all day and I spent the day doing errands and housework and then the guy came to install the garage door opener and I couldn't leave while he was there all day.
Sunday - 3.8 miles walking.  I walked to the store again in light rain and then home with groceries. I picked up recycling on the way home again.

Activity 05/26 - 06/01

Monday - Monday was a holiday but I still had plans so I managed 2 x 30 minute walks - one in the morning and one in the evening.  Both were humid and sort of uncomfortable.
Tuesday - Spin in the morning.  I did 15 x 2 seated hills with 1 minute recovery between. 
Wednesday - Glider for 50 minutes before making dinner.
Thursday - Spin for 1 hour. Mostly zone 2 with some surges. 
Friday - Walked about 3.6 in 1:10.  I was home early from work so I walked in 93 degrees - wow I could feel it. Then picked up Rachel's car from the shop. 
Saturday - Walked 4.1 early in the morning. It wasn't too hot but it was humid out. I did a little bit of running but mostly just walking.
Sunday - Walked to the grocery store and back, picking up cans and bottles on the way home. Humidity was 100% and it felt like it. 

I felt like it was a good week, activity-wise.  I haven't weighed myself in a while and don't really feel driven to do it. I may be starting to lose but I'm not frantic about it. I'm still logging my calories on my fitbit so there's that.
