On the way to Lubbock I did isometric exercises in the car. When I'm driving I pick a muscle group to tense and relax for 5 minutes. Then I pick another muscle group. I alternate lower body, upper body. I can go for an hour without duplicating an exercise. I drove for a long time on this trip, so I did 2 full hours of isometrics. This may seem like strenuous exercise, but my heart rate goes up, and I have to turn the air conditioner vents in my direction.
Saturday we walked more than a mile to the football stadium. However we were walking and talking, stopping to visit people as we went. It was more of a stroll than strenuous exercise. Our hotel had an exercise room, so after dinner I did 15 minutes on the Stair Master and 15 minutes of weights. That was a good work out.
Coming home it was back to isometrics.
Every time I travel, I find myself more and more irritated with the environmentalist wackos who are forcing everyone to use low water toilets. Not only do they make traveling distasteful, but I am fully convinced that they waste more resources than they save. If they are ordinary low water toilets, they do not flush all of the paper and other debris. They have to be flushed twice, and sometimes three times. They are not saving water!
If they are the high powered toilets that sound like they are exploding, they flush out the debris, but they spray the seat with potty water. I have to waste a wad of toilet paper to clean the toilet before I can use it. Maybe they save a little water, but they kill trees to make all of the extra toilet paper.
Cleaning my own bathrooms at home is fine, but I do not like cleaning bathrooms all across the state of Texas! When I come back to the car with a look of irritation on my face, my husband no longer asks what is wrong.
