I had a VERY invigorating walk on Saturday and I LOVED it! I walked further than I have so far! WOO HOO! I walked down a Pine Barren hiking trail but the mosquitoes were absoultely horrible so I had to turn around. I am guessing I walked 3 miles, my pedometer said I only walked 2 miles but the last 5 times I walked it and drove it, it said 2.5 miles.
I got a new sports bra and one of those fancy walking shirts, the kind that take the sweat away from your body. It worked great.
Sunday my son & "daughter in law" helped me clean out and scrub down our sun porch which was vigorus window washing, vacuuming, running up and down stairs, bending & carefully lifting. The room looks GREAT.
My parents(both in their LATE 80's), my sister & niece will be coming next week for a week long visit so this week it will be cleaning, cleaning, planning menus etc. The only drawback is my mother nagging me about not eating this or that and my father complaining about having to eat that rice crap. He is a meat & potatoes man, HATES pasta etc. They are both diabetics so at least for a week they will be eating healthy while they are here. Then since I live in tax free tourist country, I have to play tour guide, shopping assistant at the outlet shops, drive up the mountains, drive to the ocean.
So if I don't check in for awhile, I'm still trying desparately to stay on my healthy routine while being 16 years old again entertaining my parents.
Have a GREAT SPARKY week everyone!
