The goal for the rest of this week is a minimum of 18,000 steps. This morning I walked for an hour and I'll get out after supper (if not storming but do love all the rain) for another 30 minutes. In the meantime I have a trip to Walmart schedu... Read more

Unplanned activities......

This morning we went to church as usual and knew we had to hang around a while as pictures were being taken for various group activities. When we finished that we went to breakfast and met some friends there so that was fun. Then off to Lowe's... Read more

Exercise =A+, Food control = F

My exercise habits are good. I walk 5-6 days a week for an hour and I do 30-45 minutes on a stationary bike. In addition, I do some other project every day - gardening, painting, heavy cleaning, moving boxes and stock at the church thrift shop... Read more

Hot and humid again!

We drove back to Florida yesterday for some family obligations and a couple of appointments. Before we left the mountains I took a short walk at 57 degrees - no or very low humidity and felt energized. This morning I was out the door at 6:... Read more

I'm trying really hard to lose 5% of total weight by the end of August. As part of this goal I am increasing activity. I can't do too much more actual exercise as I already average a 60 minute walk and a 45 minute bike ride 5-6 days a week. I... Read more

Walking and biking

This morning I did the river walk for about an hour. I started at 7:30 but 7 would have been better - still lots better than the humidity in FL. I did 40 minutes on the stationary bike. I am still not getting my steps up to where I want... Read more

Rainy day exercise options

We woke to rain this morning so I had to change my routine a little bit. My stationary bike is out on the deck and it is covered so I did that first and got 40 minutes done. Then I had breakfast and made out my Wal-mart shopping list. Sti... Read more

Back in Florida

I've been thinking about my week here in the sunshine state and how much has been accomplished in such a short time. We attended a wonderful ceremony where our daughter was honored as one of five finalists for Florida teacher of the year. ... Read more

The two teens and the mom are gone. While we loved having them 8 days was a little too long. We decided our maximum teen age visit will be 3 days when it includes a friend of the teen. When it is just our grand we can go as long as she is ava... Read more

We have two 13 year olds with us this week. Yesterday they requested a trip to the local Walmart where they spent over an hour in the make up department. One bought nothing - the other spent almost $20.00. Then they spent the afternoon trying... Read more

A trip to the orchard

My favorite place near the cabin to buy produce is a local farm/orchard. Their primary products are peaches in the summer and apples in the fall but they also have fresh veggies of all kinds from their or other local farmer's garden - everythin... Read more

Tired muscles today

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      6 comments

Today I went down to the river walk and did 2 1/2 miles. When I got back home RB decides this is a good day to paint the bedroom! OK, I can do this. Our usual pattern is that he does the cut in work and I roll the walls so we moved all t... Read more
