. Dalhousie enjoys his behind the cabin times with me

June 8, 2017
Activity: 20,205 steps (9.4 miles)

It's been a crazy week... last Thursday I visited Mom.. found out she was back in hospital... nurses informed Noni and i that she was declining and I should talk to her doctor. Talking more with the nurses they felt she would not last very long at all.. later that night the doctor phoned me.. he thinks two or three months ... maybe longer..
so every night we been going to visit her after work.
She seems to be improving...
work has been stressful as well... yesterday we fed 240 campers... every other day it was 121 hungry mouths. Also I suspect my relief cook to be stealing food ... I talked to the owner ...
we won't mention the stressful relationship I have with the kitchen coordinator...

. Seen while driving home from a visit with Mom

. I have been having little camp fires behind our cabin to release stress.

we bought a lawn chair.. our swing was broken over the winter.. thenowner says he will replace it.. in the mean time I can't wait I want to relax outside on my afternoon coffee break

Supper






Most of my steps now are from working in the kitchen.. and then top ups on walks after work.
I'm at 10,000 steps at 2:30 from working only. Today I had a hour sit down meeting this morning with a sales rep.. I normally have 10,000 around lunch time..

I begin at 7:30 am go steady till 2 ish break till 4 them steady in the kitchen again till 7 ish..

Today I cycled 12.3 miles, 45 minutes.. but the Fitbit didn't recognize any of it..

So this is a good summary.. time to move again and go back into my kitchen

So it's Saturday, not raining so far, and I'm off.

I'm torn between taking it easy and rest .. many steps were taken this last week... or push for a new record.
I officially start feeding 25 staff + Sunday supper.

This darn Fitbit...

Sundays are normally difficult days for me to get my ten thousand steps in.. Today I really didn't believe it would happen. This morning we skipped church, I was just feeling unmotivated to move. Around lunch time I decided I had to take the Dalhouise outside... even he hadn't asked to go out today thus far.
Once we walked around the block, I came back and began to collect and organize our camp supplies and load the car. Many steps began to add up as I did that. Then a trip to the grocery store to buy food for camp.. more steps.
The car was full - very full. So Noni and I drove to camp to unload.. Lots of steps doing that.
Since it was not dark and kind of nice outside -- we went for a little walk and a steep hill climb to get more steps in and floors recorded on my Fitbit.

Tomorrow we move to Camp and begin our six month contract.
I expect 15,000 to 20,000 steps per day just by working in the kitchen everyday my 8 to 10 hours ... but what will be hard is getting floors in as Camp has no stairs for me to climb.

I wonder how Fitbit will record my cycling ?

Noni and Dalhousie and I went downtown to our local Farmers Market that opened today for the season. Took a stroll along the marina then visited Mom. Returned home and only had 5000 steps. I figured it would be much more.. but since it wasn't I went out the door.. well now I'm over 20,000 steps .. I'm sore but happy.

Update....
I thought I was done for the day.. my wife and I went to a restaurant for supper, but it wasn't open, we had to wait 45 minutes so we went for a walk ... just over 5000 steps later we're back home very full and more miles down the virtual path..

Dalhousie I agree is probably healthy and strong because of the exercise and life at camp -- but these are no match for Old Age. He is like his human... more now then before.. I am loosing my hearing... below normal now was the result of the test I had done last November. I have been blind in one eye ( almost blind very limited) since I was about five or six years old. And I certainly have old age aches and pains that working with youth can't prevent..

The car was taken to the garage last night, it was to be there all day today for work on the transmission hoses and a rear end seal. I was told it wouldn't be ready until late today. Well this morning around ten they phoned me and said it was ready. So off I walked to pick it up in sunshine, after I walked Dalhousie around the bloc first.
Returned home and suggested to Noni we go back up the gondola while it was sunny.
Well our intention was good, but it clouded over as we drove there. Going up the mountain, rain began to fall. Well it sprinkled some, cleared, clouded, sprinkled again... maybe we'll have better weather next time. Regardless we had a good hike and some excellent views.

























Meanwhile at home sitting in my spot.. that rascal Dalhousie waits


that is the guilty look

373.4 miles walked since I bought my Fitbit on January 12th

This morning I sat on the couch - sat and sat waiting for the rain to fall. At lunch it remained just overcast so I decided to go for a walk seeking some birds. Knee is sore so I figured I would go easy and slow, however I wanted to reach my 10,000 step goal .. when I finally hobbled home, I was surprised at how far I had walked. But I'm extremely pleased with the birds I seen.
I couldn't photograph a blue heron nor the woodpecker nor the raven, but I did see ones I never or rarely see here in Squamish.
Enjoy.....


American Dipper

Ring Neck Duck

. Trumpeter Swan



Buffleheads

. Wood Duck

Mallard Duck



Robin

.... hoping I don't meet one today

Today I learned that they hung en elephant... Why would they hang an elephant?

Mary was a five-ton Asian elephant, also known as "Murderous Mary", who performed in the Sparks World Famous Shows circus. After killing a trainer in Kingsport, Tennessee, she was hanged in nearby Erwin, Tennessee, in 1916. Wikipedia
Born: 1894
Died: September 13, 1916

Well I woke up to more snow... the sidewalks and the trails are covered in slush ..
I was going to take a nero day.. I walk d Dalhousie a short bloc that gave me just 2000 steps, and I wasn't going out again I thought. I went swimming at the local pool (indoors of course) and I notthat the sidewalks had been cleared. Well this means I should go out and do some more steps... 10,000 ok enough.

Today turned out to be so awesome. Not that many steps .. really .. but a good day nevertheless.
Mom enjoyed our time together




Then we went for a drive to Cypress Provincial Park






















I should go back here and walk up this mountain... can you imagine the floors and steps my Fitbit would track? Hmmm a seed is planted...

I could had stayed in bed today much longer, but No I had to take my car to the garage for service. I look out the window and my heart sank... it is still snowing and it's so gloomy.
Well no choice I must drop off the car, but I decide to walk home 3.2 miles instead of waiting for shuttle service.
We will decide later if I walk back to pick it up or take the free shuttle from the garage.
At least I try to see the beauty in this .. yet another snow day..

























Home... maybe I'll go have a nap..

I don't know how I did it ... before church I walked Dalhousie around the bloc, Ater church the sun was shining so we drove over to Nexen Beach and did a walk.
Came home and walked Dalhousie around the bloc and a little further over to the next bloc as well. Came home and I have my 11,000 steps in.. I'm so pleased and surprised and all this was in between snow/ rain....
As I write this from my couch looking out the window it is snowing heavily but melting just as fast.. I don't want to go out again...















that look says it all ....

Virtually hiking the Appalachian Trail on walking4fun website
Done: 326.1 mi / 702,483 steps
To-Do: 1,875.9 mi / 4,040,625 steps

Today turned out to be an excellent day to walk once I left Alice Lake Provincial Park. There I hiked in rain, and a snow blizzard and very treacherous ice covered trails. Once I complete a 1.5 km loop,around Stump Lake I drove ten minutes away to trails that were bare and spring like environmental temperatures. I hiked in this area for about an hour, went home ate and then returned with my wife and the Dalhousie. What a fantastic day...




I'll leave this area.. I prefer the next trail much more.. however I am thinking I want to go back to Alice Lake with proper spikes for my boots and two hiking poles..

Now for some happy trails...
need water?

is this the way to go?

he was so happy to come on this second outing hike







. My wife is happy to get outside too

. Did I mention it was very green?

today on my walk4fun they showed a style in the woods so when I seen this I had to take a picture to post.



a bump / knoll on a tree I see those too !



Well I'm so pleased to had hiked there today.. I'll be going back there for sure...

Virtually... Appalachian Trail
Done: 316.8 mi / 682,343 steps
To-Do: 1,885.2 mi / 4,060,766 steps

How to keep myself motivated to walk -- especially in the pouring rain? Well today I walked to the post office to mail,several postcards. Then I decided to head north along the Sea to Sky Trail. The last I remember it was not completed in this section- today I walked along to see how far they have gotten. Wow the trail is done to the new subdivision they are building. I think if it was more dry I would had kept going.. but at this New subdivision I turned around.. I was getting wet. I'll be back either by foot, or I'll get the bike out.. almost time to start riding my bike.

Tomorrow-- we'll see how motivated and how I feel in the morning I want to hike at Alice Lake Provincial Park.. my day pack is packed with treats and a change of clothes.







I'm craving burgers.. help,me to,stay strong .. I must resist

Pouring rain in Squamish. I woke early, hoping it would be clear, I waited all morning sitting on the couch hoping... even the Dalhousie slept on the footstool hoping I would not take him out in the pouring rain. Finally I had to get off the couch.. I need to get my ten thousand steps in..
I woke the Dalhousie-placed his raincoat on, I put my rain pants on and my raincoat and out the door we went. Dalhousie just went around the block - then I returned him to the warm dry footstool. I on the other hand went back out into the pouring rain.

I'm hiking virtually the Appalachian Trail on walking4fun -- here is my progress so far...

March 2, 2017 (4.8 miles) .. I hope to get a few more steps in today... we'll see

This morning very early before breakfast-- before I even had a coffee I went out the door and walked to town and back.
Came home and walked the Dalhousie around the block.
Later I went swimming then walked around the recreation center a couple of times.
Came back home and once more walked the Dalhousie.
Slowly the step count rose and I have walked 10 miles ...

I truly have beautiful area to walk ... these photos are all from this mornings walk.

It was a little chilly this morning to go out the door. However I want to walk six miles today if I can. Concerned about the sitting time going to and from Vancouver in the car, but hopefully walking around in the mall will add up the miles / steps and just maybe I will get a small hike in too

30 minutes. Have gotten my husband to walk at 8am with me. I live in Southern California, & it heats up early. We are lucky to have The Encino Park behind Encino Village where we live. We walk through the park & sometimes at Balboa Lake near by. 3-5 times a week. Not fast (yet)! :)

I started with just going 10 minutes, then it was a mile, then it was 20 minutes, then it was 2 miles, and finally I am now at 30 minutes.

I try to concentrate on miles and let the minutes take care of themselves ...

My goal is 5 miles a day, I usually get 3 or more but I am trying to get up to 5.

I've been on the treadmill every day for 50 mins. Hopefully weather will improve - no rain - and I'm on a better shift at work so I will be home earlier too.
