The circle is complete -- Squamish to Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons, to Powell River, to Lund, to Vancouver Island-- to Comox, to Gold River, to Campbell River, to Port Hardy to Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay to Squamish (home) over 1300 km (807 miles) driven from Monday to Saturday ... not counting the three Ferries, and I still managed to get over 84968 steps in. I even broke my record with 81 floors the one day.
What a Road Trip it was..









stopped here and spent money

Fitbit registering flights of floors

yes I spent some evenings on the treadmill

waiting to go for a walk

exploration at the Fish Hatchery

exploring a Super sized Walmart


I do believe this was the record breaking day (81) floors

Elk Falls





play time

Over 20,000 steps done today and 75 Floors climb... hopefully this helps
And half an hour swim in the hotel pool


Road Trip - this was day Four... will catch up once we get home so many things we seen and so many pictures

So bad - very very bad !
We were out walking with the Dalhousie stopped to take some pictures and somehow began talking to a local. This person highly recommended to go to this bakery ... the magic words -- Noni always checks out bakeries. Most are terrible with only a few things.. this one was is the best one we have ever walked into so far. ( Noni loves to bake)























Well go ahead and scold me...

Done: 403.3 mi / 868,682 steps since 12 January

Today was an indoor day for the most part. Mall walking and a little time spent walking around a fair..



















No way will I go on those rides.. but it did bring back memories of my younger days in my hometown many years ago.
The following are more my type..

Activity: 3,232 steps (1.5 miles)

Today is a write off.. failure when steps count..
Miserable outside...
However very productive when it comes to work.
All morning meetings with the Camp owner and Camp Director, discussing about this up coming years menu and scheduling and changes to procedures. It appears I will get most weekends off and an occasional week day off .. they have hired a relief chef and a kitchen coordinator.

After this I drove over to our part time job and discussed how we can continue to work occasionally with them over the next six months. That was another two hours of talks.. wow time flies by fast..
Then returned home ate -- this was just after two
Sent three emails to different people concerning extra work I do in preparation of the Camp season...
My eyes were growing heavy so heavy. Fitbit says I only had 4.5 hours sleep last night. Yes that's about correct. Went to bed normal but couldn't sleep.. got up watched a tv program .. back to bed tossed and turned .. mind racing about the meetings and menus running through my mind.
Woke up early.
Prepared notes and skipped morning coffee and breakfast and drove to camp. 45 minutes drive in the rain ...
Heavy eyes.. about 3:30 went for a nap - 6 pm wake up for supper that Noni has prepared.. and now I just sit on the couch.. not motivated to even to try to get my five thousand steps minimum in... I know I will regret this decision
I know I will feel guilty tomorrow

What am I to do.. don't bother telling me.. it's too late .. I'm going back to bed and read.

After the Provincial Park walk - we took the Dalhousie home and Noni and I went up the Sea to Sky Gondola. It will be our first time in two years. First time we ever bought a pass... this year the company changed passes from seasonal to annually. I'm also counting on more time off of camp this year. The promise of a relief cook for weekends... so I hope to use this pass much more.

















It's going to be awesome ones the clouds roll away

Fingers crossed..
I woke up from a strange dream, I'm not all that into dream interpretations, but....
My dream... my younger mother was living in the house of her late parents who were alive in the house as well.... for some reason I was having a issues about what room I was to have with my late older brother.. I was involved in a breakup and was moving in, also quarreling over the use of the phone and limiting time talking to girlfriends. I wake up...
Laying in bed for a few moments I realize I don't need to rush to the washroom...
I go there anyways and all seems normal once more.. has the infection finally broken..
There seems to be no issues at this time..... fingers crossed. Today is the last day for the antibodies.... I am also just realizing I actually had a full night sleep too instead of the several wake ups...

Side note...
We were at the pool the other day, two younger female teenagers came in and for at least half an hour sat together at one end of the pool in tiny two peace bathing suits. The area they were in was getting wonderful sunlight streaming in through large windows. They used their cell phones taking pictures of each other posing .. I know things like this happen, I know often worse poses take place behind closed doors ... but these tiny two piece bathing suits were not concealing much. I wonder where those pictures would end up out their in cyberspace.
I talked to the life guard about this... she only said she saw them too and wished they would actually swim, there is no rule saying you can't take pictures and they were in a quiet part of the pool and were not taking pictures of anyone else, so nothing could be said or done....

Yesterday morning when I walked the Dalhousie to the park, in a backyard next to it I noted...
In the yard was three very young girls wearing pjs and housecoats - not sure if they had slippers on or not - certainly not dressed for outside on a cold morning. One was playing with a huge dog with a stick, one was just walking around, another was doing something in the mud.
What really caught my eye though was a very small boy wearing nothing - Nothing - but a sagging diaper who was in the garden picking up things. The temperature was if I remember correctly was -4 c It may had warmed up slightly by the time I walked Dalhousie but it still was cold I was wearing three layers and I was chilled.
Eventually a man came outside wearing a black housecoat talking on a phone. I just kept on walking in the park and the man stood in the door way talking on the phone not really paying attention to the kids ... that was how I left the park.... what in the world is wrong with people?

I said I'm going for a walk

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.

This is walk number one, I still need to go the door again this day..



















It's not snowing....
It's not raining ...
The sun is trying to burst forth ...

So today I took my Mom out to dinner at Boston Piza. She was extremely happy to spend time with us. She arrived by handicapped bus and Noni and I walked over in the rain.
The Snow has stopped, but the pouring rain has made everywhere so slushy. We had to wade through puddles that were almost as high as our hiking boots. I'm sure glad I water proofed then just a little while ago. Well we ate our lunch brought home extra for our supper at home. Yes we walked home too in the rain.
I won't be going out for any more hikes today.. once more low step count for the day. Just over 6000 steps...

Fear of the scale is beginning to arise once more ... But I'm hopefully that scale cooperates. I went out to a farewell party last night that served chocolate cake ( my favourite) and home made ice cream.

Today I am not going outside to walk - too much snow and so far no snowploughs have cleared the walk ways nor the side streets and the day is half over. Also I'm catering a dinner party tonight... Noni is making a chocolate cake and homemade rosemary bread ... I am cooking a turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and fresh cranberries. I also might serve frozen peas too

Tomorrow I promised to take my Mom out to Boston Pizza for lunch. I'm sure there is going to be negative consequences on the scale because of all this entertaining






Look at this snow pile, first time ever that I can remember on my balcony

So I hear rumours that tomorrow we are going to get snow, freezing rain, rain --- Bad weather.
So I got out the door for four walks today .. my knee is suffering a little and my back is hurting. My back began hurting in the swimming pool today as I did laps. I was hoping after sitting in the hot tub it would be better.. that helped somewhat but I still feel it.
I went to the doctor today.. the new medicine he had prescribed for me .. was giving me extreme dizziness and nausea. So today he changed it.. I wonder if that has anything to do with the little weight loss ...?

Of course I had my camera with me most of today.. enjoy........















Did I mention that we stopped to eat lunch?









I think the couch is calling me back!

Well all morning I just sat on the couch. Then just before noon I suggested to Noni that we go for a walk. We walked to Wendy's to buy a chilli and Dalhousie had a burger.
I'm surprised now that I'm home I still feel strong... that is a good thing.

Here are a few things we seen on our neighbourhood walk
putting on some spikes for traction

just like the real trail, we have bridges to cross streams



I'm a bird watcher always



















just two house that I thought were cute

Portion size .. that is a very strong weakness -- I'm always hungry

Just for fun I stepped on the scale this morning.. it has dropped .. why not yesterday morning?
Oh well I will not record it .. I'll wait till next Sunday and then it should go down a lot ..
Maybe I was retaining fluids because of that cold bug -- I feel betgter today

So this day my scale remained fast at 232 lb. not pleased.

February 5, 2017 (4.9 miles) 10,640 steps

Appalachian Trail
Done: 143.3 mi / 308,655 steps

Today my cold bug is back, throats is so sore and a headache that just won't go away. I'll not mention that my body aches all over too.
Outside is so grey.. the roads are grey, the sky is grey the mountains are whitish grey and the snow is all greyish. It feels like an Ontario November too me..

Well I went out the door to walk the Dalhousie
. Brought him inside and then Noni and I went to church.
After church I did a very quick drop in to visit my mom ( we wore masks) said hello and then left. Ate lunch at sushi
Then sat on the couch. Sat and sat... looking at my Fitbit.. I need to step 5000 more steps... I don't want to get off the couch.. I sit with this nagging disappointment of not getting 10,000 steps in.. Ok Ok ... I dress up and go outside to walk..









look the snow banks are like mountains





Dalhousie is the smart one

I had my doubts today if I would even get out the door. It is nasty outside. However we decided to go for a walk. I ended up going for three walks by the time supper rolled around thus I got my 17,119 steps in.

I had a couple of days indoors - had a great view out the window though. I still managed to get over 10,000 steps in. Yesterday however my wife and I took a stroll to the Walmart- yes we left the car at home.. she was sore - I was sore, by the time we arrived back home. My steps at days end were .... 17009 steps.
Today is my weigh in I went from 235 lb to 234.5 lb. I thought I should had lost more.. I have gotten all my steps in and have eaten better this week.. maybe it is because I have this nasty cold bug that hit me hard Friday night.. Just maybe I'll drop an extra pound or two when I feel better... I dream ..

So much rain here. I walked mostly in the condo up and down three flights of stairs yesterday. Not happy about that but at least I was moving. Two times I went out with my umbrella to increase my step numbers.
I wonder what will happen the next three days... I'm not going to push to get the steps in, I will be in a kitchen... if you know what I mean. My Fitbit won't have to remind me to move. ( lol ) but will I actually walk 10,000 steps in the kitchen?

Let the rains fall

Today I was very motivated. 15,283 steps (7.1 miles)

Now I'll share some pictures of what I seen today while I was out hiking near my home.




That was one very steep hill...

I'm bad.. most of my day is on the couch watching the TV and iPad.... I'm hooked on Instagram
hopefully this will change and I'll get outside getting my 10,000 steps in especially with this Fitbit keeping me honest

I do walk the Dalhousie everyday day and so I always carry a EDC kit that contains
a pocket knife, lip chap, notebook, pencil, pen, sharpie, tissue, lighter, flashlight, Advil, magnifying glass, a chewie bar, and some water purification tablets

I walked the Dalhousie around the block, then I took him home that was 3000 steps. Then out the door I went again to walk 7000 steps.
I bought myself a Fitbit and joined walking for fun where I can walk the Appalachian trail virtually. I'm going to really like that ...

Walking for fun ...

Appalachian trail. (Virtual)
I started walking today 8.3 km
( 5.1 miles)
These are my real sights as I walked around my home....

Well the Dalhouise is at home all tucked in - warm and cozy.... I feel so bad leaving him there but he can not go with me on all my excursions. I did take him out first for a slip and slide around the block though.

Poor guy has been limping badly all week and just now beginning to walk normal again..

The first of January 2017 and I had spent most of the day on the couch.. I couldn't let the New Year start off with being a couch potato all day...
















Did I mention that it was cold and windy - very windy. It was 0c (32f) without the windchill factored in..

Went out for a drive and found a place to do a little walkabout. We must come back here for a picnic -- it's beautiful



















Driving home it was nice to see





Those pictures might be good, but I'm really really BAD
. I we were hungry and had a craving...
Dalhouise enjoyed it too.. -- actually we received a free bag of popcorn chicken - Dalhouise loved those

No pond walk today, probably not tomorrow either as I need laser eye surgery in Vancouver.
It is very dark and gloomy with a slight sprinkle of rain here in Squamish today. It's a couch day.
