Walked with cousin

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Walked at the mall.. 45 minutes with cousin and decided to get in the hour since she had to leave and walked 70 minutes and made it 4 miles. I got an email from the gym I belong to and am resolved to get there for an hour every day.. I will try to do different thing each time I go.

I am doing bored eating.
When I am not sure what to do I eat.
What should I do instead?
a. go to the gym.
b. take a nap.
c. take a walk
d. take an exercise class
e. go visit or call a friend.

Been choosing food too often this week.
But the week is not over and every minute I waste is gone forever.
So I will finish this blog post.
Close down the computer.
Get my chores done.
And go and sit with my friend Ellen.

    Great picture! What gym did you join? Because I have been thinking about joining a gym again too and it would be great if we went to the same one! I used to do water aerobics at 24 hour fitness on Howe, I would love to do that again:)

    Good decision! I'm at home today because of the ice, so I have been doing my Zumba dvd's all day. Gonna be sore tomorrow, but I'm thrilled with all the sweat I created and calories I burned.

Latest fire place picture

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

So this is a picture of son#2's fireplace insert he installed. He did all the wood work.
But my daughter in law put up tasteful decorations and I'll post those pictures when I get them.
I had such a nice time visiting with them. They took us to a pop up cafe. On the days when a restaurant is closed a person hires the space and calls his friends to come by and purchase lunch.. I had Pasta bolanaise with mixed vegetables . It was raining so we drove but there were no tables left so we took the food to go and we at at son's house.. Hubby and daughter in law decided to nap so son and I had a chance to talk alone. It was a real treat. So hubby drove home.
I made him take me to Pollo Loco. Had soup and fish tacos.

This is my brilliant historian son and his genius deputy director wife.
Aren't they stunning.

so today I am eating, but only planned meals at planned times.
More vegetables and the fresh oranges and kumquats from my trees.
( looking forward to apricots, the tree is in bloom today, Hope the bees are out too.)
Want to plant some strawberries in my raised beds.
Need to eat that beautiful red swiss chard growing in my raised beds.
Went for a walk and didn't push my pedometer on so I only count 1 mile for 20 minutes.
I walk around several blocks and it comes out to a little more than a mile.
Want to get a fit bit.. maybe I will go later today or tomorrow,

No more trips to Arden Fair but to shop

Saturday, February 16, 2013

I really had a nice time going to the Arden Fair Mall in Sacramento but... I think that unless the other team members want to do it I will be walking locally. I walk at Sunrise Mall, at Maidu Park,
at Rusch Park and I go to Cal Fit. So that is enough for me unless someone wants to meet me and they take the initiative. With the weather getting warmer, I'd rather swim or walk outside.
Except for my friend Nettie who is on chemo so I walk inside with her.

Crazy busy.

    I'm sorry I wasn't able to make it the last couple of times either! I really enjoyed walking with you the couple of time I did make it:)

    I get it and feel a bit guilty as I was so excited to do this with you. I want to thank you for your efforts and willingness to drive so far to make this walk happen.

    Bummer. I would love a girlfriend to walk with. Hubby does some, but only if it is really nice weather. Right now its too dark out when we get home. One of the reasons I can't wait until Spring.

Arden Fair February 9, Saturday 9 to 10 am

Friday, February 08, 2013

Will anyone show up this week? I really think it would be great if one or two showed up.
But I have to keep the spirit going of Sebrina who was the original team leader.
if it is going to happen be at the central desk by JC Pennys. I am not allowed to put up signage but just sign up to be a mall walker and look for a 5 foot tall grey haired lady with an orange shirt and green vest. I will try to bring my sparkpeople red water bottle.
