the greatest moon in the world. (tribute!)

Friday, May 24, 2013

Did anyone catch that moon last night? It caught me out in it while I was walking. So lovely.

*note: This is not the moon i saw last night, it is just a tribute.

    Went to the grocery store tonight (Fri.) and when I came out there was that gorgeous moon shining down on me. I just sat in the car for about five minutes enjoying.

    We are surrounded by a forest of trees, with a bit of clearing on the Southeast side. When the moon is bright as it was last night, it casts awesome shadows . . . Sometimes, if I wake up during the night, I'll spend a few minutes looking out the big windows, enjoying the moon shadows.

    I'm one of those people who can become mesmerized by the moon. I've been known to pull the car over just to gaze at it for awhile. I'm sorry I missed seeing it last night. Love your tribute!

what happens in the garden

Sunday, May 12, 2013

"TBSnooz/Breaking News:

Veg-Evac personnel were dispatched early this morning to an undisclosed garden near Austin after receiving this call on the emergency line: "Git here nayow! Mah veggies'r diyd! mah purr purr veggies...Ah saw'r it with mah own ayes! They just lept right out of the sole and threw themself right thar' on the grayound! Thar's exes awn ther ayes ther diyd ah kintell. Noooo!"

Upon arrival at the scene the emergency personnel became suspicious of the owner of the garden not only because they couldn't pin down their accent, but because the plants appeared to have been sheared off at the soil line. When the authorities arrived they discovered a dull sharpie and a sharp pair of dull scissors on they-who-must-not-be-sane and issued the following statement: "These were bought locally."

They are still baffled over the accent.

This has been a TBSnooz breaking news alert. And remember: "TBS - for your Total BS"

    Well, that sort of goes along with the headlines of the smoke jumpers who were dropping out of a plane to fight a wild fire and landed in the middle of a mexican cartel's major pot farm . . . .

it's a good day

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Need to use up some of this energy. My S-iH disorder is acting up today (sunlight induced hyperactivity) i might have to go into a dark room and calm down.

So I have a bunch of exercise planned for today. Running along to a podcast called begintervals is one.
I made up a bunch of routes through my neighborhood yesterday (and named them)
emoticon There is a one miler called Lightning Loop : short and fast around the block.
emoticon A 2 miler called the Triple Duple (aka Turtle): it's 2 uphills and 2 downhills and 2 miles of course.
emoticonAnd a 4 miler called the Quatrain Crossing (aka Frogger) - I cross to the "other side of the tracks" and have to come up with a poem in my head by the time I get back.
emoticon I am looking forward to this one.

Anyway, my goal is to walk each of my routes at least once today that will be uh... (counting fingers) 7 miles total.

Beautiful day have a great one! I had the flowers out with me this morning doing sun stretches. :)

wow! thank goodness for spell check, but I can't believe that "Frogger" wasn't in the dictionary...

    Love your flowers. Nice they are water resistant. Have fun with your loops, and I would love to hear the poem.

    Love the names you given your routes!! Good luck with your exercise today. You've inspired me. I was thinking about your 7 miles that you are going to do and it seems a little overwhelming, (well for me it would be anyway). However, if I walked the dog 3 mi in the morning; walked a mile at lunch and then walked the dog 2 miles in the evening it's not so overwhelming.

PLUS...that will be about 16,059 steps for me and won't my FitBit to be super happy.

Thanks for Sparking me with that inspiration!!

on a roll

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I met all of my goals for yesterday!

Mindful eating for one meal
Stay within calorie range
40 minutes dog walk (+10 bonus minutes)
9 cups of water

For today it is all of the above plus:

10 minutes stretches

I weighed in this morning and I am down 1.2 pounds from last week. I wasn't great about staying within calorie range all week, but I am definitely eating less than before. Combine that with the extra activity I have been doing = weight loss.

Look out! This is how i roll.
