Terrific Thursday! Photos of Win Haul and Riverbank

Friday, March 30, 2012

I did my usual 30 on the bike and 30 on the elliptical and then went off to Curves Zumba. It was a busy class, but when the second class was to start there was no one! So a staff member and I went in and did it. I didn't do the machines again as my hand was sore, so instead I danced all the way through, adlibbing the parts where the instructor paused for the machine workouts. So 120 min of fun cardio :) The instructor was impressed with my improv, said I should go to this dance class that makes up moves as you go along, turned out I had attended a couple of their classes when they first started out and did a demo in my building :) I wished their facility wasn't so far away from me -its called Big Fat A$$ Dance Class and I loved it -at the time that term did apply to me lol.
So to my prizes, lots of them!
The biggest was a One Year membership to the YWCA -base price is $433 a year, but there was no price given when it includes free towel service and locker as well as the personal trainer for three sessions, I imagine it would be quite a bit more..
I had Mom take a photo of me in front of the goodies:

A better look:

To go with the three golf clubs (drivers), packaged by the Easter Seals kids, I thought this was cute:
I didn't realize golf was such a tough sport -bandaids, aspirin? I like the wet wipe that is an insect repellent, and sun block is a must!
There was this pouch of a pen, flashlight and tire pressure gauge:

Out of the five articles of clothing, I could only fit the running singlet:

and the water resistant tech jacket for MS:

What I wished I could have fit was this:

What I found really neat was this bandanna they call a buff:

It says Sask 50K ultra Relay Saskatoon. I can use it winter or summer in a variety of ways, from a headband to a wristband to a face or neck cover.
This is the complete list:
1 Year All Access Gym Membership at Fitness on 25th (Mom is getting excited about this :) As a senior, she could have gotten it cheaper then regular..)
1 Year Locker Rental
1 Year Towel Service
3 Personal Training Sessions
Water Bottle, T-shirt and Bag

Saskatchewan Abilities Council 10% Gift Certificate for Custom Orthotics and Car Kit

Birth Rythyms Bummis Newborn Diaper Pack

Larry’s Sports Exchange Set of Golf Drivers (Don't know anyone to give these to yet)

Grip-It Climbing Center 4 Drop-In Passes w/ Gear (my niece loves climbing so this will be wonderful for her)

Leven’s Coffee 3 month Coffee Subscription (Mom is going to be happy with this :)

Saskatoon Hoop Community Custom Adult Hoop and 3 Beginner Classes

Polka Dot Piggy Designs Yoga Mat Bag, Wetbag and Reusable Sandwich/Snack Bags (these multi colored lively bags are just the cutest!! Take my lunch to the club in style now :)

Saskatoon Wellbeing Magazine Half Page Free Advertising with the Magazine

Vitae Nutrition and Doula Services Cook Book, Food Basket and Nutrition Class (meant for new Moms)

Saskatoon Road Runners Association SRRA Singlet and Buff

Free Flow Dance Center 2 Tickets for the WIP Show

Brainsport $100 Gift Certificate towards Apparel

Planning For Baby Gift Basket (so pretty -I haven't found anyone to give it to yet..)

Choice Nutrition Blood Analysis and Laser Treatment -looking forward to this -its supposed to help with pain, but I bet you need more than one treatment for it to start to be effective ;)
We stopped briefly at the weir and saw a train crossing the bridge, can't imagine what its like to be on there when that happens -you are really close to it, you can see some people on there:

One last piece of ice trying to get over the weir:

The geese have returned with a vengeance!

We were looking for pelicans in there, but that lone white bird is a seagull, kind of surprised he is in there, they usually keep to their own groups:

They are so packed in there, i don't know how they ever find room to nest or how they decide who gets the spots. they really love that little island in the middle of the river.
Mom went for a walk after she dropped me off at home and spotted two beaver and the muskrat in the little pond we go to! The temperature was wonderfully warm today 57F (14C)
Have a Fantastic Friday all!

Wicked, Windy Wednesday!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I started my day enjoying my morning exercise, 30 minutes on the bike, then I tried my 51 minute kickboxing DVD. Was having fun up until I had to do a wide legged stance and my right hip crunched and protested vigorously :( That old familiar pain that had laid me up just before my right hip replacement was showing itself again :( I ignored it and finished my workout. Did my usual morning stuff then had lunch and headed out to the club.
The wind was ferocious and I had to fight each step I took into it :( I had a decent game and came second, but learned a scoring error led to my losing out to my nemesis yesterday by a tiny fraction of a point :(
When I got out of the club, the weather had gotten much nastier. It had clouded over and the strong winds were freezing, was regretting wearing lighter clothing -can't see we reached our double digit temperature forecasted today. I had been hoping to go to take a fitness class, but didn't want to get stuck in a storm if one came. So I threw two loads of laundry in and headed to the mall to see what the closing of Zellers was bringing in sales. I saw two items I liked, but were too small. I did not think 10-30 % off was much for a liquidation sale. They won't move a lot at those prices.. Hoping they will come down as I like this Team Canada jacket I saw there. Being generally frustrated and in a snippy mood, I bought four different kinds of potato chips, oh so bad lol.
After I had done my laundry and got it put away, I sat down for a spell and when I finally got up the quad protested in a big way. Swell! That, and the pain in my hand makes me wonder if I will get through my workouts tomorrow. I really want to take Curves Zumba tomorrow. May need a painkiller boost, but that won't help if I snap a tendon in my bad right hand.
I have the next five days off from the club. Wish I could talk Mom into going to the Spa -Manitou, healing waters...I just got my cheque -honorarium and director's fees - could afford a few days away :)
Oh the food package did come with a cookbook and a nutrition class, but it was packed away with everything else -if I had checked my e-mail, I would have seen all my prizes listed :P. Oh well, will collect tomorrow!
Have a wonderful sleep and a Terrific Thursday!

    We went to a store that was closing (Sears) and the prices we so high to begin with and at 50% it was ok on some things. But, we got there after all the stuff was picked over-saw nothing I wanted at all! Waste of time! But, you never know until you look!
Hope your hip and hand feels better soon. Maybe you should take a few days away-you sure deserve it after all you been through! emoticon

    Oh, Manitou really would be a wonderful place to make you feel better. Haven't been for quite awhile myself. We used to spend our summers there when I was a kid. I spent many hours at the old pool and across at the beach. Hope it works out that you can go.

It wasn't very nice here either but today dawned beautiful and bright. I went for a hike along our nature paths with the dogs and couldn't believe how nice it was; and how completely opposite to yesterday.

Hope you are enjoying a better day.

Did my usual morning exercises, still feeling the muscle, but got it done. My usual breakfast, then my Humira injection, spending more time there then usual -she was a half an hour late. Got home and started getting my lunch together. I had my spinach salad with the crushed walnuts as well as some mixed seeds I had left over from my last salad and put some left over Asian salad dressing on it, was nummy! Then I had half a baked sweet potato and some green beans and finished off with some raw carrots and turnips dipped in Greek yogurt. Was great, but more calories then I am used to for a lunch -the walnuts, about two and a half tablespoons worth was 140 calories and 13 g of fat! Wowsers! Will be having to watch how much of those I have!
Went off to bridge and had a good game, tied for first with 62.88% with of course, my nemesis :P. Then it was to the mall to pick up some medications and my breakfast staple, bananas. Read a bit and then went off to Curves Zumba, just love the music and energy. Can't wait to get out and take full classes at the Fitness Facilities.
Great news is I can give Mom the free Y membership, in fact, I can give it all to who ever I please. Will be tough figuring out what to do with the natural diapers though lol, as the crises nursery or other places want disposables :( I will see everything I got Thursday as I made arrangements then to pick them up. I talked to the guy to make sure he was going to be present and to ask if I could give the membership away.
Discovered I am far behind on blogs, but will get around..
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    If by natural diapers, you mean cloth diapers, they are excellent for cleaning. When my two youngest were infants I used cloth diapers cause I couldn't afford Pampers, not even sure they'd been invented 39 years ago. I'm glad you can give your prizes to whomever you chose and hope you can use alot of them.

    Great to hear that you can give the membership away and that you came first in your bridge game!

The fat in walnuts, albeit a bit high, is considered one of the best fats for you overall so I wouldn't worry, unless of course you overdo it everyday.

What are you reading these days? I'm in one of my reading spurts......working in a library sometimes turns me off from books but right now I am reading several a week. Just finished Still Alice and Secret Daughter. Both were great

Prize -Part 1 Need A Cook's Advice!!!

Monday, March 26, 2012

Wouldn't you know it, the bridge game I ran wasn't so smooth today. It looks like more people then me were asleep and I got a lot of director's calls and it seemed like the same three tables were always behind. Some people you just can't make play a little faster. Mom arrived early to pick me up to take me to claim my prize, but ended up waiting 20 minutes anyway. I finally made it to the YWCA at a quarter to three. I was told the office would be open until four. Low and behold the guy had left early (what is a male doing running what is essentially a women's facility anyway?) But I did get my perishables as they had to be left out in the fridge.

I got a nice bag of fresh spinach, some mint, a big bag of crushed walnuts, a cooking onion (Mom cut it up for me), a small clove of garlic -never seen one that small lol, some curry masala spice (does it ever smell good), green lentils and olive oil from Italy that is only processed by mechanical means -so no additives. and sun dried tomatoes! So I am not a cook, but I am assuming these ingredients are meant to go together to produce a meal. Beyond knowing you put walnuts in a spinach salad, I am not 100 % sure what to do with the sun dried tomatoes and mint, is that for the salad too, or do they go with the lentils?? I am assuming the garlic and onion go with the lentils. I am guessing the olive oil is to spritz on the salad as you don't cook with it.
You see, I am a raw food vegetarian so don't really cook at all if I can avoid it. I depend on Mom for my veggie chili and lentil treats. I don't carry anything for cooking in my apartment -no oil, flour, sugar, etc. So if I need something like soup base to make a masala I will have to go buy some. Stuff I currently have on hand are green beans, sweet potato, bell peppers and carrots..
Suggestions from any foodies out there?
Really tired and sore, hope to hit the sack early tonight..
Hope you all have a good sleep and a terrific Tuesday

    I love to cook but often need the guidance of recipes. There is a show on FoodTV called "Chopped." Chefs are presented with a basket of mystery ingredients and have to produce a dish from them. I know I could never do something as challenging as that. However, I do love sweet potatoes in a masala dish. I've never really worked with lentils. I'm sure you can come up with something interesting and palate pleasing.

Hope you get good sleep tonight. emoticon

    Weird that you got that conglomeration of stuff and no recipes . . . .

You could cook the lentils until they're tender and saute everything else except the spinach and the mint. Once everything is cooked, stir in the spinach until it is all wilted and then mix it all in with the cooked lentils.

I'd do something else with the mint. It's not a taste that I would add to any of the other stuff - but what do I know?

CRYSTALJEM 3/27/2012 12:22PM

    I'm in a bit of a rush so I don't have my recipes handy, but you could use the tomatoes and mint in either or both of the dishes. For that matter you can even do everything as one dish if you want. Go easy on the masala. I love it, but some blends can be quite potent. You can cook with the Olive oil, just don't make the heat too hot. I'd leave the mint fresh regardless of where you are using it and add it at the end.

Man, wish I was closer and we could do some cooking together... it would be so much fun. I you decide you like lentils and curry, let me know, I have a couple of recipes that at least I really like. If you like stew/soup combos, check out some recipes for dahl (or dal)

    There are different ways of making it, but it sounds like the remaining ingredients are to make a lental Dal, which is an indian dish. I'm not sure about the mint, but the curry, garlic, oil and onions, and even the sundried tomatoes make a dal. You can also add some cumin and coriander,
Have fun

I Won!

Monday, March 26, 2012

Started the day taking it easy. Then had Mom's home made Mac & Cheese for lunch -used double cream brie, cream cheese and cheddar cheese, yummy!! Had a cup and a half. This is my all time favorite comfort food and I can't remember when I had it last :) Then we went to Costco where I had to be ultra conservative in my spending as I was getting that broke at the end of the month feeling. I had an interesting sample -a protein bar that actually had 32 g of protein!! never seen one with that high a count. It was 320 calories though, but if you were going on a serious long hike or climb, this would be a great refuel. Sorry, addled brain that I am, can't remember the brand, first time I had seen it there.
Then it was home and I decided I couldn't do nothing and had to work off that lunch, so Mom and I went for a two hour walk and hike (took the paved path one way and the rough path back).
The geese and gulls have returned in full force: It was neat seeing the white birds in one area of the sandbar and the dark birds in the other..

Lots of tracks on the new snow:

It was a dull dreary overcast day for most of my four day stay..

Then it was off to my brother's where supper was home made white buns with real butter, pulled pork and boiled broccoli, cauliflower and baby cut carrots. Dessert was a kind of parfait, made out of a two bite brownie, chocolate pudding, cherry pie filling and whipping cream on top, was good :)
Didn't stay to play cards, had too much stuff to haul home from Mom's, as well as I had to go to the club to set up for the game I direct on Monday. When I got home, I checked my messages.
The seventh and last message said I won the grand prize package of the Health & Wellness Fair! Involves a one year membership to the YWCA, towel service & locker and three sessions with a personal trainer! I could not believe it! I NEVER win anything! Ironically, this would be difficult for me to utilize as the location is far away from me and would be difficult to find the time for all the bus transfers it would take to get there. Buses on my side of town run every hour and never meet transfers downtown, they are a pain. But also, I already qualified for a free pass to the City's fitness facilities which are much closer to me. I don't know if they will do it, but I am going to see if they will let my Mom have it in my place, I can only hope.
Giving thanks my special friend Lori was not seriously hurt in a horrible car wreck. Spark on Lori!
