Actually, the yardwork was quite a milestone for me. Craig mowed the lawn (a new development that makes Ken happy!), and Ken worked most of the day Sunday, but the big news is that I weeded for about 40 minutes and....(drumroll, please)...did not crash today! I did see, however, why weeding has always crashed me before. Even with my beta blockers, within about 5 minutes of going out there, my heart rate was already up against my anaerobic threshold! Amazing how much I've learned from using a heart rate monitor.
Anyway, Ken and I did squeeze in one movie Saturday night:
- We watched How Do You Know, a romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon. It was a fun, light-hearted movie, just what we needed. I'm a big fan of Reese (very disappointed I missed seeing her at our local produce stand a few years back when she was visiting her then-in-laws). She's about my age (mid-40's), almost exactly my height, has two kids like me...and was playing a 31-year old athlete in this movie quite convincingly! She played a professional softball player cut from the US team and unsure what to do next, caught between two guys - a ditzy pro baseball player, played very well by Owen Wilson, and a nice guy caught in the midst of a criminal investigation, played by Paul Rudd. Jack Nicholson (another favorite) plays his somewhat evil father. Light and fun entertainment!
