Two trips to the gym

Thursday: Swim 500 yards, walk 5 miles

The 90-minute walk is going to be a Thursday evening tradition: We don't have cable, and it's the best way for me to watch "Project Runway."

The 500-yard afternoon swim was supposed to be longer, but I hadn't moved my goggles back from my post-vacation "pile" to my gym bag, and the only ones I had were leaky and unacceptable.

I've been counting calories on My Fitness Pal, but somehow it seems to be making me heavier. I think because it gives me way too much credit for the exercise I do. (Example: Yesterday it said I burned more than 1,900 calories on my 30-mile ride. Surely it doesn't realize what an awesome bike I have. Or that 14-16 mph is not really that "vigorous.")
