Nothing special day

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Did normal routine, get up, eat breakfast, walk Phred and then I went to the gym today. I am trying to go 3 or 4 times a week. I always exercise by walking Phred 2 times a day and when I don't go to the gym I use my indoor walking dvd's + 30 Day Shred. I did about 35 mins of strength on the machines today along with cardio of 45 mins.
Came home, ate lunch, watched last half of OLTL & then GH. Showered, got on the computer to do Sparks stuff. Cooked dinner, walked Phred and now I am sitting here waiting for TBL and Lost tonight. Thats it for today. Pretty normal day for me.

Another manic Monday/A bit cool/windy/cloudy

Monday, May 10, 2010

Got up this morning and ran some errands. Was a bit cool outside with the overcast and clouds. Came home and took Phred out for his morning walk. Got home and made lunch, got caught up on some reading while ABC's soaps were on the tv. Then did my "30 Day Shred" and "Fast 3 miles" DVD's.
Made Stouffers Stuffed Bell Peppers ( they have too much sodium but the calorie count is low and they taste pretty good), with Steamfresh veggie, and salad. Cleaned up the kitchen after dinner and took Phred for his evening walk.
Ran into a couple of neighbors ladies who also walk and spoke for about 15 mins.
Frieda stopped by to visit and play with Phred after school. F will be 10 on the 28th of this month. F has been coming over to the house since she was around 4, when I had my other dog Lucy. She loved Lucy very much and now comes to see the Phrester.


Happy Mothers Day To All/ I am in a size 10 @ Old Navy

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Stayed up a little late last night to watch some of SNL. So I got up late round 9am. Made myself an egg sandwich with thin bagels for breakfast. Sat down and read some of the morning paper. Tried to call each of my sisters, got a hold of one of them Doreen and talked for about 30 mins., then took off with Phred for a nice 52 min. walk. My other sister Linda called me back during my walk, so I talked to her for about 15 mins.while still out with Phred.
Came home and headed over to CVS to return some sunglasses that didn't work correctly. I wanted ones that fit over my prescription glasses and I thought that was what I was buying but it wasn't. After that I came back and went with my husband over to Staples and this sporting goods store he wanted to check out. Saw some cool kayaks there. He said he would buy me a couple pair of shorts or Bermuda's at Old Navy. I went in and at first I was picking size 12's and then I thought I have several pants/shorts in this size and they are big. So I got 4 different styles in a 10's. They all fit! I was really surprised. They weren't even tight at all, just went right up the legs to the butt and buttoned or zipped without any problems at all. Sooo happy emoticon emoticon
He then wanted some lunch at In N'Out, I ate about 10 fries and had a light lemonade. I came home and had a SO mini burger.
I am making ribs for dinner tonight. I know it is Mother's Day but we went out to dinner last Sunday and we didn't make any reservations anywhere so I decided to cook. Yesterday it was so warm and sunny here, today it has been overcast, windy and cool. They predict rain by Monday night or Tuesday. Where in the hell is spring or summer coming to S.CA? emoticon emoticon


Kayaking with Frank/lunch at Huntington Harbor

Saturday, May 08, 2010

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

New DVD's and other things

Friday, May 07, 2010

Got up this morning around 7:45am, sat around reading the paper and then started doing laundry for my son and myself. (Yes he will do his own clothes, it is just sometimes to have full loads I will had his stuff to mine). Walk the Phredster and came home.
My friend Irene called just at the end of the walk. She stopped by later and I feed her some lunch. She had a piece of the left over Crustless Salmon Quiche from last night and really loved it and wanted the recipe. I gave it to her. She is still separated from her family. Her son Bobby who is almost 19 has a lot of anger issues and has done a lot of damage to her home and the family. She had enough, packed her bags and told her husband for once to take care of things. She has been staying with a cousin in South County (Rancho Santa Margarita) and she loves it there. She is having dinner tonight with her husband but I don't think she is going to come home if things don't change.
Tomorrow Frank and I are going kayaking. I think Frank will enjoy himself and I am looking forward to showing him how much fun it is. It will be nice to spend my Mothers Day weekend with one of my kids.
I got my 2 new exercise dvd's today. I get $10 in Amazon gift cards every month from an RA site that I am a part of. So I had enough to get 2 of Leslie Sansones dvd's that I didn't have, both are 5 miles indoor walking dvd's. I also had enough to get "Avatar" with both the blue ray and regular version. Frank complains now when we buy dvd's because he only has a regular dvd in his room, not a blue ray.
