My Week in Pictures

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Well, not my entire week. Monday though Friday are work days, so they're pretty much routine.

Except on Wednesday I overworked my Achilles at kickboxing class, limped around on Thursday and was worried that I wouldn't be able to make my Sunday hike.

Friday was exciting 'cause we got to see Endeavor land at LAX. We all climbed up onto the roof of our warehouse building.

Here I am with my sweet co-worker Connie. I've pitched SparkPeople to her several times...

And here she comes...

They flew over four times before they finally landed. A moment in history.

Saturday was chores: Grocery shopping, laundry, etc. etc.
I did make it to the farmers market and picked up a bunch of local fruits and veggies.

My Achilles said it would be okay to hike today. Distance was only 9.5 miles, 2000 feet vertical.

It was beautiful!
Fitbit had me at 20,400 steps and 216 floors :)
A perfect Sunday!

    I hope you do this often, because I am subscribing to you. What an inspiration! I think that taking daily photos when I am exercising and then posting a weekly blog will help me - and you gave me the idea! thanks!

    Wow! To see the Endeavor fly over and land. I saw the landing on a recorded piece on tv and thought that was awesome---how exciting it must have been.
Love all the pictures you have in this blog. What a beautiful area you went hiking in on Sunday.

    We had Space Shuttle Discovery fly over our house twice (and my kids' school) last spring. It was very exciting, but also very sad - sad that the shuttle program has been retired.

Great job on your hike.

    Love your pictures, especially the space shuttle. In 2006, I lived in Florida, and I got to see the space shuttle take off, it was awesome!

    I worked at the space center in Florida for a long time. WE got to see them
close up landing, taking off and coming in on top of the big plane. It was
always exciting to see a launch from the center!

Great experience for anyone.

Thanks for sharing.

    What a beautiful way to get in an incredible stair workout. Thanks for sharing.

I got to see one of the shuttles where I lived several years back and it was amazing! Glad you got to see it!
