Good Morning ladies!!!!!
I am so glad you checked in about Bolt. Poor little guy!!! I might poo on the floor too if I had all that medically going on!!! I would not EAT IT THOUGH...
Give him a few days and he will be back to his cheery little self!!!!
YES YES AND YES on an RV lakeside run!!!!! Where did you find? I would TAKE the kayaks. Just when you think no, you will want them. Better to have and use than not have them. Doesn't mean you have to swim! Good exercise!!!!!
Oh and then a hot burning campfire to come back too...... making me JELLY now!!!!!
I just love a good campfire at night in the fall, nothing like it. Such a great time of year for that!!!!
A bit of lake, a bit of sun and all will do you very good!!!! LOVE IT.
I hear ya on the meat sales. I am still eating my way through my steaks and crab and loving every bite!!!!!
- I am getting the rain today, you will get tomorrow. Then it is supposed to get nice for a few days but cooler!!! I am right there with TRIG
in that red clay!!!-
We have red clay that gets everywhere especially when wet- think DOG PAWS!!!! URGHHHHH- so hard to get out of fabric!
Took me a long time to get used to the color of the soil here!!!!
Even the grass here is not "real" grass. It is Bermuda grass, thick rough blades spaced apart. Unlike the soft green and such grass up north! Plus the fire ants here build mounds. Gotta watch those!
I totally get you not going to the gym over the winter months. To be honest the "mother hen" in my is happy about you not going. I am sure you can find something with not as much exposure to keep you fit.
So my son bought a "flat" treadmill off Amazon. It is lightweight and literally is just the walking pad, and its thin. He is a runner and uses his in front of the TV. It is so light weight as well he just picks it up and leans it again the wall when done.
I have seen it and want one too! I think I would use something like that- over the huge treadmill I sold.
It truly is so cool- I would use it. It is met for walking and a slow jog. It hold up to 350 and has a nice wide base, yet light weight.
Something like that, and add a weight workout and that could be an option.
I have that on my TO GET list when the job comes around! Check it out- it could be an option for you. Do you still have a DVD player? I know there are some good videos still out there. I don't have a DVD player anymore. It died and I never replaced it. But there was a video set - Beach Booty or something to that effect that looked good.
YEA on the EOD way of eating! That worked so well for you and NIC
!!! You will drop again in no time!!!!
- hey waiting for updates!!!!!!
I would have checked back in with you yesterday but a 5 year and a 3 year took me down and out for the count!!!! We left yesterday for Henderson NC for the apple orchard. DD drove- I am not a great passenger, just FYI. My DD was just chatting away, and then yelling at the kids, the kids were fighting and I was a nervous wreck by the time we got there.
She would turn around to break up the fight and I would be like - HEY RED LIGHT!!!!!!!!!! My DD just laugh and said- RELAX mom....... happens all the time. OMG
She just kept chatting away happily in her zone...... OMG I needed wine or something at 830 am!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAH
Then the Apple farm- I should have worn my "other" shoes as my Plantar foot desired to start screaming pain about a mile in. It was a U PICK gig. You pay 20 bucks for a bag and go pick your apples. Then you have to WALK to go get them and haul them back. The only apples left still on the tree were Pink Ladies, which were 1.5 miles down the hill and to the left of the orchard. THE orchard is on the side of a mountain. The walk was down to get there and UP to get back.
At that point- we have 30 pounds of apples and "lil bit" besides she wants CARRIED the entire way back.
I am DYING cause of my foot, extra 50 pounds of flesh I am moving around, not used to hiking and my DD sweeting says.... APPLES or the kid..... to CARRY. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?! I took the kid, then switched to apples, then back to the kid. I was pooped, sweaty and tired. the kids?!?!?!? Nope- started whining to go play at the petting zoo.
Where was the petting zoo you ask? 3/4 of a mile the other direction on the farm- back down the hill. OMG..... I did not what to be the whining GIGI- so I sucked it up butter cup and just kept going. We did not get back until 4.
After a 30 min. drive back to this apt- I heated left overs and kept nodding off in a chair. I barely ate and went to bed at......... 7:45.
Slept straight though until 7:30 this morning and having coffee and here I am.
First: I am grateful for coffee!!!!!!!
But seriously it was a huge wake up call to me. The fact I had SUCH a hard time with the walk and the 5 year old ran circles around me is disturbing on many levels!
I have got to get in better shape! I would say yesterday was a 4.5 mile day. I asked DD what she thought was walked and guessed about the same.
She does 6-7 miles on a regular basis so this was a "nothing" hike for her. She goes to the mountains regular to hike and takes the kids. She is the one you see with a baby strapped to her back and a little by her side and a dog chasing along - yea that person.
Funny thing- I was coming up the mountain and had the sack of apples, sweating and really short of breath. I saw a family going DOWN the mountain to get apples and the dad was heavy set and lagging behind his thin wife and kid. I looked at him and he looked at me- then I said: Yup this will be you in an hour!!! He belly laughed and said that is what I am afraid of!!!!
I don't want to BE that lagger!!! What a wake up call!!! I am sure my foot had a small part to play- but it was more of I AM NOT IN SHAPE!!!
The landscape was so pretty..... had I not be so focused on my imminent demise and lack of oxygen to my brain I could have enjoyed it more!!!
The kids and DD had a GRAND time. Time for this GIGI to get it together. I am over being the lagger. The thing is also, my EX came to visit DD last week and they went hiking as well. I am totally sure HE DID FINE...... urghhhhhhh
OK- moving on, literally. Today we have the downpour rain. I got up and it is dark as night out- and pouring!!!!! Supposed to rain all day.
Going to use today to follow up on some resumes I sent this week and the apt I am interested in.
Food today- Filet and steamed broccoli - looking at 15 carbs if I have one 5 oz glass of wine with it. If not it will come in about 7 carbs for the broccoli.
OMAD so works for me.
Well that is it on my end. will chat up later as you all get on.
YOU ARE MISSED, just not the same!!!!
