We hiked to see a waterfall today

Monday, May 26, 2014

It went pretty well getting there and back. Nice to sit and watch it and the gurgling brook below. Peaceful sounds. :)

Got to exercise this morning

Friday, May 23, 2014

It'd been a couple weeks since I'd exercised, due to my back being nasty. Been having other stuff going wrong too, and I got into a kind of mantra of "what difference does it make" to just about everything. I got to the chiropractor the other day. Yesterday my back didn't feel good again, but I think something went back into place overnight, because I felt I could do walk away the pounds workout at least- with no pain, yay. So got to do that this morning. Two miles. So that's a bit uplifting. It's nice to have something that is.

Yesterday, after my pushing through brush (probably losing the tracker that way) and all, I found a tick on my arm- but it wasn't attached. Today, I felt something on my neck- my husband thought it looked like a scab to him- I asked him to please use the tweezers to remove it. When he did- it was obvious to both of us that it was a tick. Great...that one HAD been attached. UGH
I'm praying that nothing bad happens from it having been...

    Watch your energy level. I've been bit a ton of time and have always been fine but you just have to keep an e on yourself.

My Spark Activity Tracker is gone

Saturday, May 10, 2014

I went for a very long hike today, and no longer have my activity tracker. I noticed it was missing when I went to shower, after finding a tick on my arm (not sticking to it, thankfully, though). I temporarily ditched the shower, so I could try to retrace my steps, but the hike was on my own land, and I went through a lot of brush and on lots of trails and it's muddy, and....I just can't find it. My husband tried too, but it just doesn't want to be found. It's so weird to see the tracker syncing when my computer is on...but not know where the tracker actually is....
I walked a LOT today too...

    Fingers crossed you find it! I would think it would be close if it's syncing...

    Hopefully if it is syncing it is in the house or very close. Best of luck finding it.

    If is is syncing doesn't it have to be within 50 feet? Just an idea.

A hiking we did go (yep, pics too)

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Well, my spark tracker says I walked over six miles today. It was actually a lot of hiking. We did a lot of steep uphill and downhill! I KNOW I burned a lot more calories than the tracker is saying I did. I wish I'd used my hiking boots. I don't know where my brain was at. The sneakers worked, but hiking boots would have been so much better- even though they would have let some mud in (thanks to the dogs). I need a new pair of boots...heh.
I did use my new foot bath when I got home. :)
My husband and our daughter and her husband and I went hiking for over 2 hours. I did take some pictures with my phone.
Here is looking down a bluff over the lake.

Here I am with my backpack and jacket slung, having just taken my glasses off.
Here are a couple of pictures from the highest point we were at on bluffs.

As we were nearing the parking lot there was an Amish family heading to an area overlooking the lake.
Didn't see much in the way of animals on our trek. A few garter snakes, a couple chipmunks, some great blue herons on nests, and that was about it.
I was just a little surprised at how many people we saw there on Easter, other than us. :) Good for them though!
Oh yeah, we saw a bunch of wild turkeys crossing the road on our way home.
I hope each of you made some good memories too.

    That's sounds like a pretty cool hike, and wild turkeys are always fun to see =)

    Now that was a beautiful Easter hike, lots of miles and calories burned.
We went for an evening walk in the park today, after our Easter dinner, very nice and quiet day just the way I like it. Oh and I had dinner ready on time for a change.
Have a relaxing evening emoticon Jackie Love the pictures, thank you
