Frank and I headed over to Huntington Harbor this morning for kayaking fun. He had never tried this b/4 and I think he had a pretty fun time. Will put up a picture as soon as the Jerrod (the young man who took pictures last time) loads them onto our club site. He a couple of nice ones of Frank and I. Was pretty warm today down at the beach so the cold water felt wonderful.
Parking was a total bitch. No one realized that they do a special Mother's Day Fair in the Sunset Beach area so it took about 15 - 20 mins. to find a parking space. And when I did I was only about 50 yards from the rental place along PCH. Many others ended up having to pay to park for the day, anywhere from $10 - $15 dollars or park blocks away from the place.
After the cruising (lol) around the harbor a group of us walked up PCH to a place called "Harry's", where we had lunch. Frank had a chocolate shake and hamburger and I had the Turkey Club, 3/4's of it eaten and I was stuffed, I couldn't finish it, so Frank ate the rest after he finished off the burger. I ended up drinking a diet pepsi which really didn't taste too good, first diet soda I have had in about 3 1/2 months.
I made sure each of us had reusable bottled water for kayaking, so wasn't too thirsty. I put more ice in the diet soda than diet soda. Then Frank asked if we could go and walk on the beach. Sounded good to me.
We walked down to the beach and walked along the shore for close to a mile, then came back up south of where the car was parked. We cut across PCH and clean out feet off from all the sand and headed home to clean up and shower.
It was a very good day and I am so glad that my son went with me and really enjoyed himself. He said he would come with me the next time either Irene or Sandy couldn't come with me. He is taking a nap right now. Poor baby is tired out by all that exercise. lol

Got up early so we could open the windows in the house b/4 it got warm this morning. Why? We always have problems with our drains, so this morning was the day the stinky stuff was going into the kitchen, bathroom and tub sinks. This stuff works but smells just awful. Rotten eggs to the 100 degree. PU
After that I took Phred for a good walk and then came home and started the house cleaning. Cleaned up the back yard, dusting everything in every room in the house, cleaned both bathrooms, vacuumed and mopped. Then it was time for a little lunch and watch the last half of OLTL and GH.
After that I did the "30 Day shred", showered, did some Sparks stuff and made dinner using a Sparks recipe. I really enjoyed the "Crustless Salmon Quiche" but the men folk were "Real men don't eat quiche" thing. I think I should have used a little more of the pepper sauce then it said, would have given it just a bit more bite. I also grated 2 pcs of low fat string cheese in place of the mozzarella, and I used whole sharpe cheddar. I think this is a good recipe but next time I would use chopped bell pepper and maybe tomato's the next time I make it.

Yesterday was sort of boring. Did normal routines and somehow the day just got away. Did my indoor walking dvd, JM's "30 Day Shred", walked the dog. Nothing too special.
Today had a doctors appointment and pulmonary test on my lungs. Doing very good. Also I got weighed at Dr. Lawton's office and even after eating breakfast this morning I was 168.6. So I figured if I had weighed myself b/4 eating this morning I might be at 165. I will wait for my Monday morning weigh in and see how I do. I haven't been below 168 in about 3 1/2 yrs but I only stayed there for about 6 months b/4 the pounds came back. This time I am not going to stop until I hit my goal of bwt 135 - 145, by the end of Dec. 2010.
