Got up this morning and read most of the paper, then did 2 LS's walking dvd's.
The first one is 3 miles using the walk belt and the 2nd on was her boot-camp dvd using the figure 8 resistance bands. Took a shower, ate lunch, watch OLTL & GH. Took Phred for a nice walk in the cold wind, with the sun coming out occasionally. Came home a did some stuff around the house, got on SP to put in data. Took my son and I out to dinner at Polly's where I had the salmon cake sandwich on whole wheat (no sauce) with tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and spinach with Kona Chips on the side (a type of fat free potato chips that are made fresh at Polly's everyday). I only ate a few of the KC, while Frank finished them off. We also got to have free slice of Blueberry Crisp pie. I had water with dinner. I kept within my calorie count and I am stuffed.
I plan on hitting the gym tomorrow morning. I need to practice my jogging/running to see if I can break the 2 miles without stopping. I need to do this every other day and soon everyday so I will be ready for the 5K in June.

Lavender wild flowers.
Yellow wild flowers. No I have no idea what these are called.
Most of the wild flowers in the desert area you can only see for a few weeks or so. With our weather being so back and forth, it looks like there will be a longer blooming season. I will post the rest on another blog to follow.

Stayed up late on Friday night to watch "Halloween:the beginning", I have see all the other Halloween movies so I figured I had to see this one too. lol I have been a scary movie fan since I was a little kid. My older sister use to get scared watching the soap opera "Dark Shadows" from the 60's, so she would have me watch and keep her updated. I guess this would be from around 10 to 14 years old for me.
Did a few small things around the house but the weather had cooled off and I just didn't feel like doing too much. So I shifted my off cardio day from Sunday to Sat. No biggie.
At 4:15pm my friend Irene picked me up and we went to the movies ("Rango" with Johnny Depp playing a cartoon lizard). The movie was very funny, but not really for young kids, older kids 10 or so would get the more adult jokes. Afterward we went to dinner at a place called the Katella Grill. It has very good food and I had not been there for a number of years. I use to go with my daughter on occasion.
Today I walked Phred for close to 4 miles because he didn't get any walk yesterday. He really enjoys his longer walks. After NASCAR was over I went over to the market to pick up steak, milk and some other items we needed.
We BBQ'd the steaks and they came out very good. The men folk had good thick NY cuts and I asked the butcher for a smaller cut for myself. My DH worked on a friend's car in the driveway and later my son washed the car he was working on. I washed my car on Thursday evening, when it was warm, but looks like it is once again cooling off. Same old, same old here.
DH leaves for Chicago again on Tuesday morning for 10 days. He will be going back in May and most likely I will go for a few days too. Any of my SP friends live in the Chicago area?? I have an old room-mate to meet up with but would be great to meet up with some new SP friends?? Let me know anyone?? Don't have the exact dates yet but will let anyone know who would like to get together with me?
