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...

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...

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.

Saturday was a full day with family. We had one birthday at the end of March, one a week later and two (twins) in April, and to celebrate all at once was the idea- plus the best way the family could all get together for Easter was to do it the day before Easter. So it was a full house and a good day.
I am allowed to have 3 "cheat meals" a week, if I want to, on my eating plan, so I wasn't too worried about having a little bit of cake, so I tried all three kinds (yeah, can you believe it?!) I took a forkful of one, and a very small piece of the other two.
Looks like I stayed in my calorie range for the day, so that's good. :)
Oh yeah, one of the birthdays was mine, and I got a mini trampoline (I've liked the idea one of my spark friends has of running on hers, and I see there are lots of exercises on youtube and so on to follow too) for those, a burning bush (I've wanted one of those plants for some time), and a gift card to Amazon. Yay :) It's nice when people go in on something together to get what you want (they do ask for lists of ideas!). Oh yes, hubby and I got a joint gift of a foot bath that is supposed to massage your feet. I didn't want to tell her we already had one. But hey, now we could both soak our feet at the same time, right? hahaha
One family had a couple hours trip, but the other much longer. Sounds like they were planning to go part way home and then stop at a hotel so it wouldn't be such a long drive back in the morning.
It was nice to see and be with everyone. :)
I hope you each have/had a lovely celebration as well.
Happy Resurrection Sunday/Easter!
