I have the rest of the week to get to my yearly goal of 30,000 exercise min. this year. I am sure, had I not been sick a good portion of Sept.& Oct. I would have reached my goal a few weeks ago. I will be happy to get past that number and I will increase my goal for 2011 to 35,000 exercise min.
I am also thinking about finding some charity walks to do in and around the OC area. I can do some jogging but I have never been a runner, don't even have the desire to run. I never get tired of walking for miles. I think this goes back to my childhood. The town I grew up in, was pretty small back in the days. If you wanted to go somewhere as a kid with your friends, you walked, rode your bike or road a horse. Being out in the fresh air, feeling the breeze and sun on your face, always brings a smile to me.
Anyway I will post my new goals on the first of January 2011 and see how much I go over my goals for 2010. Remember everyone just keep moving, drink your water and keep within your calorie range and the weight will come off. Slowly goes the turtle, so you can live a longer, healthier life!

Today was one of those S.CA days, just after we have had a good rain, when the air is clean and the sky is so clear you can see everything. The San Gabriel Mountains are covered with snow, which you can see from my back porch. I need to take a picture for you all to see how lovely the mountains look. It was warm with a lite cool breeze and we opened the windows until almost 5pm, when the cloud cover came back.
We had a sort of tradition of homemade Belgian waffles with some hamsteak for dinner tonight. Afterwards I tried to get the DH and son to walk around the neighborhood to see the lights. DH just was too tired out after Frank and he poured some more cement in the area that DH had cleared and prepared early AM. At first, they both said no, but about 15 min. later Frank said OK Mom we can go and take the dog for a 2nd walk. We had fun looking at the lite houses and seeing what the different yard ornaments could do, like move or not. A few houses had music. We think some of our neighbors try to decorate to win the city award, but no one won from our house track.
Hope you all get some great gifts from Santa this year!

Well it stopped raining today for about 2 hours. My DH and I were able to do a few errands b/4 the rain started up yet again. Afterwards we stopped to pick up lunch at Wendy's where I had their 1/2 Apple Pecan Chicken Salad with Pomegranate dressing. Except for the fact they could have left out the blue cheese chucks, I don't really care for blue cheese, it was pretty tasty. The heaviest of the rain are suppose to hit S.CA sometime tonight and not stop till Thursday afternoon. We will have some warmer weather for a couple of days, not sure if we are going to get any sunshine. Then it is suppose to start raining again on Christmas day at some point.
I am pretty glad at this point that we did not start construction on the house like we were suppose to do starting in the middle of Nov. We will be doing the construction in the summer. It may be hot but at least I won't have mud in the house everyday. Wait I do have mud in the house, because the dog brings it in through his dog door. Mopping has become an exercise in futility.
Can't get rid of DH's dog but wish DH would learn to clean up after the dog. Oh wait he has me to do it . I walk Phred, feed him, clean up the yard, take him to the vet and the son bathes him or I take the dog to the groomer. Whose dog is this anyways. Oh yeah, DH gives Phred junk to eat and lets him sleep with him.
Oh well could have done better on my food the last couple of days but the weather just gets me down and my RA & fibro. just kicks in and hurts. I have been exercising, which is good.
Have a nice evening everyone!
