Some days I'm so good that I can't stand myself........................

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

There's a threat of thunerstorms so I went out early. I pulled weeds from my weed garden so I could finish mulching. (We were getting pretty tired of looking at the pile of mulch that has been sitting on the driveway for a few weeks.) After that I had some cantelope and sparked for a few minutes. Then I completed Level 1 on the 30 Day Shred. Next, I get to take a bubble bath! I can't wait to see how I feel tomorrow (I haven't done pushups for a very long time.)

What did you do for fun today?

    I went out to the garden and enjoyed my lunch on the patio after a couple of hours of hard work.

    Gma went to the airport today, and the flights is delayed 1 hour because of the storm in STL. Enjoy the bubble bath while it thunders!

I just bought 30 Day Shred and can't wait to try it out. My son saw it and commented that I was obsessed and possessed. I can live with that. Call it whatever you want, I'm eating better and am more fit than I have been in a long time. Nothing is wrong with a healthy obsession! Are you obsessed?

    I'm not obsessed with exercise, but mostly with gardening.

    Wow, this is my life right now! I am OBSESSED!!! I am sure that all of my friends are sick and tired of me talking about Spark and Jillian Michaels. I am on my last week of JM's 30-Day Slimdown Challenge. You are going to love 30-Day Shred! I am excited for you! Keep up the great work!

    I've been accused of being obsessed.

I don't consider myself obseesed but rather passionate about losing weight and fitness! emoticon

Although, what better obsession? emoticon

Katy Trail

Sunday, June 06, 2010

Just got back from a 22 mile ride on the Katy Trail. The weather was great (high was 82 degrees with no humidity). Parts of the trail were crowded and others were empty. We went by a biker bar with a large area of outdoor seating and could smell the food on the grill. Yum. We sat for a few minutes and watched the river go by. What a day!

Did you do anything fun today?

    Fun day, too! MB shot personal best in a tournament, 83! MS volunteered all day on the links. Nikki escaped on leash and chased a rabbit up the hill on the 18th hole in full view of spectators. Good that you're so cute, Nik!

    Went to a local park to shoot some hoops and go for a walk. It was a beautiful day to be outside.

    I did some gardening and went for a walk, and did tai chi with a group in the morning.

    I also went on a bike ride today.

But mostly, I cooked for my oldest son. We had a lovely lunch and then tried to fix his grandmother's computer.

Still doesn't work...I think it's time to cut our loses.

    I WISH!

I did go to church and got to enjoy the company of believers, gathered together to learn more about our God, and I wouldn't change that.

But your day sounds so wonderful!

I'm going to Olive Garden for lunch to get together with two childhood friends and their moms. The "gals" got together about a month ago after not having seen each other for abouty 40 years. We decided to get the moms involved and I can't wait. Hopefully, I will not overindulge.

    QUADCMOM is right. I took my kids out the other night and looked at the nutritional menu AFTER the fact. Although I thought I was tweaking my meal to stay within my parameters, I went WAY over in fat and calories!

Good Luck and have fun!

    See if their web site has the nutritional menu. If so you can plan ahead for what you will order. Have a great time with your friends.

Bike ride

Friday, June 04, 2010

Just got back from a 20 mile bike ride. It was about 87 degrees outside and very windy but it was a good outing. I burned about 800 calories. I rode on the Katy Trail and around Creve Coeur Park.

What outdoor activities did you complete today?

    Sounds like a wonderful outing. I too rode today, but didn't burn as many calories.

Keep up the good work.
