can't believe it I got stung again today.

Yesterday I got up early and sprayed all the yellow jacket nest. Evidently I missed some, still haven't found the nest I missed. When out working in my yard today I notice quite a few flying around but they weren't close to me so I continued on with my yard work. The next thing I knew I got stung right by my knee. Needless to day that ended the yard work for the day. I do have benadryl this go around so hopefully it won't be as bad. It also doesn't hurt as bad as the last one but then it didn't bite me as long.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.f

Sondra these pictures don't rival yours from Kathryn Albertson's Park but here is a couple of pics from the mk nature center








Here is a couple from my Monday's Trail Run. Why do I do this to myself?

Hey Barb after talking about salmon I broke down and bought some frozen salmon and some froze maui. Any recommendation on how to cook it or should I ask your son.

Christine I look forward to our walk in the fall.

Rachel and Sondra sorry you didn't make it today. Maybe next week

Hope you all are having a fun team walk. Yep, I can meet for a later one in the fall Kathy. :)

Barb, the 5k with a friend sounds like fun! Hope you got a good sleep last night!

Roberta, hope you got a good sleep too!

Cool, I will be at the Zoo at 9:00

Christine I will expect you on at least one team walk this fall when it is cooler and we can do it later in the day. I like sleeping but I hate the heat more then I like sleep. emoticon

Kathy, I will be at the zoo at 9:00. I like the MK/Warm Springs option. Hoping Sondra and/or Rachael can meet us too!

Christine, sounds like fun! And you got a new elliptical! Sweet! Hope Hunk gets it put together soon.

Today was a good day. Did a 5k with a friend (just around the neighborhood), then walked around town for some errands. Made chocolates for Bunco tomorrow night and did laundry. I'm tired now!

hope to see y'all tomorrow!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I don't do early anymore, but I do hope all you early birds have a great team walk!

Roberta I am so sorry you are still having problems sleeping sometimes. Good job on all of those steps though! emoticon

I am so happy today because I am back to the weight I was before I left! Yahoo!!! I will be continuing to try to get back down to 140. That is probably my goal weight I could actually get to again this summer. I did get a brand new elliptical new (not put together yet). That will be a DH project.

We are just trying to get back to normal here first. DH is planning a fun thing for us in the mountains near Stanley. A friend of ours Patti (& Rick) take their camper up to the mountains and leave it there, and use it like a cabin and get this, it is FREE. They go up every weekend because she still works. Anyway, 80's during the day and 40's at night, so we won't need A/C. I am so excited! I hope this works out because there is so many mountain birds I have never seen! Plus there is a stream behind the road. The bad part is there is NO Wi-Fi but I can go into town once a day and use my iPhone's Personal Hotspot and check messages and so on .I also need to get a screened in room because DH doesn't like bugs! :)

I will check back in at 7:00 AM to see if anyone wants to meet up.
I try to be out the door between 7 and 8 to beat the heat of the day.
So if there is no response because I posted the suggestion so late. I will hit my neighborhood roads. However I would really really like a change of scenery so I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will have a team walk.

Here are a few suggestions. Does anyone else have some suggestions?
1. We can meet at the zoo and then walk to municipal park go through the MK nature center then walk up to warm springs and view the old homes and then back to Julia Davis

2. We can walk the nature trail off Riverside street by the Glenwood bridge.

3. We can meet at Ann Morrison and walk to the White Water Park.

4. We can meet at the Eagle Sports Complex off old Horseshoe bend road and walk the foot hill trails.

Did 15,281 steps yesterday. That was 150% of my daily goal of 10,000.

On Walking4Fun Arizona Trail, I finished up Stage 12 and on to Stage 13 last evening.
That is 12 out of 43! (31 more to go)

I slept 1:40 hrs last night out of 13:16 hrs in bed--took 9:30 hrs to fall asleep! (And here I was doing so well!) That strawberry smoothie for supper was responsible! All those carbs! What was I thinking! I wasn't! I was hungry! It was quick! emoticon

Thanks Barb!

I am working on the mountain of laundry today and the general cleanup on the camper. But I got my walk in first before the heat set in!

Welcome home Christine!

Kathy, 25 seconds? You can definitely shave that off!!! Love the picture of you and your friend. And joining a running group is a great idea. Gives you someone to suffer with. tee hee.

Rachael, I'm sorry you're working so much! Those hours sound horrible! Why is it so busy at your work?

Where are we going on the 23rd and what time?

Have to shave 25 seconds off my time to qualify for the senior games. I can do this.

Here is a picture of me with a running teammate. She is 71 years old. I hope I am still going at 71.

I got invited to join a trail running group today, and yes I am going to do it. I am truly becoming a running fool.

Oh and they had extra shirts so they let me exchange the shirt for a larger size.

Barb the nap sounds better. I know with the race being on a Sunday you probably couldn't do it cause I know that is a day you spend with your DH.

Rachel look forward to seeing you on the 23rd. I don't know if we have picked a spot yet but we will. Try and sneak in as much rest as you can.

I picked up my packet today and I think they must have given me a child shirt because it is way to small. Makes me sad because it is the prettiest colored shirt I have been given.

Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well.

Sorry I haven't checked in for awhile...been working from 8:30 am to 9:30 pm almost every day since I came back from vacation..will likely be doing the same schedule on Saturday and possibly Sunday, too. I might be able to back off to 7:30 leave time next Wednesday...we'll see. By the end of August when this crunch period is over, I should be a little less exhausted. I hope??

If I don't have to work on the 23rd, I would love to join you for a walk Kathy and Barb!

Hi Kathy, I'm not doing the race this weekend. Too many other things going on. I'll look at the Ho Ho Hustle, but no promises. I do want to see you in your beard though! LOL!

How's everyone else doing?

Tomorrow I'll be running a couple of errands and then back home for either laundry or a nap or both. :)

Speaking of, it's my bed time. Spark you all later!!

Anyone doing the Woman's Classic this coming weekend? Besides me that is.

Barb glad the car fix did not cost and arm and a leg and your first born grandchild.

Christine whether your mom knows you or not, if she is anything like my mother she will just enjoy the visit. My mother would go with complete strangers, all they would have to do is start a sentence with "Do you want to go". She made up a lot of "replacement Memories" some were pretty wild but I just went with the flow. There was no way I could convince her she had never jumped out of an airplane or that she never bungee jumped. She sure had a lot of adventures in her mind once her memory failed. So just enjoy the moments with your mom.

Enjoy your trip Christine! Even if your mom doesn't remember you, you remember her and it will be nice to see her.

DD's car is fixed for only the cost of a thermostat and some silicon for the seal. Yippee!!

emoticon Hi everyone!! Wow, I spent almost all day packing for my trip! I leave tomorrow and I am still not sure I am ready. I am really looking forward to seeing my mom even though I doubt she will remember who I am.

I hope all of you are having a lovely evening!

Kathy, One wasp sting is pretty bad!! And very cool on the new (to you) laptop. I have Windows 10 and I don't mind it.

Christine, enjoy your trip! Drive safe and have a great time!

Busy day for me today. Updated yield slides and that took most of the day. Plus had to do lots of other work. Should make a fast week!

Four wasp stings, wow I guess I better quit whining about my single sting.

Yesterday I ran in the rain, today I walk in the cool sunshine. I would love it if our weather would stay like it was today but rumor has it will have summer once again. The woman classic race is Saturday I am really hoping for cool weather.

Christina have a safe journey and have fun.

My nephew sent me a refurbish laptop. Such a sweet boy, is company is replacing their computer and I am benefiting from it. It has windows 10 so I am going to have to spend a little time playing with it, but I am happy.

Roberta, wow I didn't know anything about that... you always seem to have interesting stuff to tell us about, thanks!!

Barb, we are planning on leaving this Wednesday, we don't drive straight through, just too long of a road with nothing to look at for the most part. And I am with you that I am enjoying the weather today!

How is everyone doing this week?

The old is new again! I reported that a hospital used honey on a relative's bedsore. Now that anti-biotics are ineffective against the super bugs, colloidal silver is in use again--the topical kind. Do NOT ingest another form of silver--it turns your skin BLUE! Did you ever hear of the Blue Man! I found a bottle at Natural Grocers store. They had a bunch of kinds, but I bought the topical one for cuts, sore, infections, etc. I think that advice was in an email newsletter from Dr. Mercola (mercola.com).

Four stings??!?! Ouch! Poor baby! I'm sorry that she did, but what a warrior!

Christine, how fun that you get to go visit your mom! When do you head out?

Kathy, with all of those races should help you shave some time off. Maybe not three minutes. You're right...that's a lot of time to shave.

Hi Rachael and Sondra! Will you be able to join us on the 23rd?

Today was cold and rainy. As much as we can use the rain, I'm ready for the sun again. Hope you all have a great week!

Wow, your daughter is a warrior! When I got stung by one I remember being in a great deal of pain and not being able to "take" it.

I should be back from CA by the 23rd. I am going to visit my mother.

My DD was stung four times on her cheekbone by wasps yesterday when she moved a patio chair where they had a nest!!! She dowsed them with spray wiping out the entire bunch! Then mowed her lawn! What a warrior!

The 23rd looks good for me. Saturday the 16th is the woman's classic race. The senior games are August 20th and three minutes is a lot of time to shave off when it comes to running. I will give it a shot.

I too need to get out to the range. I should be at least doing some dry drills.

Hope you all are have a relaxing Sunday.

Hi ladies! I have a CCW permit, but not enhanced. Would like to get an enhanded, but not sure when I will go for that. I am going shooting with the guys from work next weekend. Good practice!

Are we planning a walk soon? The next one I can join in on would be the 23rd.

Kathy, I'm glad your ankle is feeling better. How soon do you run the seniors run? Maybe that's enough time for you to pull your speed down by three minutes. Maybe?

Roberta, I like your imagery. Hope it works for you!

These days grocery store parking lots and movie houses are soft targets. I was followed once coming out of Fred Meyer by a scruffy guy. My nearby store person said carrying concealed is OK in their store if you have a CCW permit.

emoticon On that, Kathy. Mine is perfect for home defense but tiring to practice more than 15 minutes. I would like to find an easier one for target practice. I use Glaser Blue safety slugs to use inside as they don't go through walls. Otherwise my neighbors might be upset. emoticon

Fit for Life 5k has been run. I also signed up for the 5k in the senior games today. To qualify for nationals I have to shave 3 minutes off my time. I don't think that will happen but I will go for it.

You have an Enhanced CCW? That is impressive, Kathy! We had our classes with Safe, Sound, and Ready in December of 2012--the first Christmas without my son. It had been on my "Bucket List" for decades. My father was an "Expert Marksman."

Off to the Fit for Life race.

I can see my ankle this morning and a little anti itch cream on the ankle and I will be good to run.

I do have an Enhanced CCW. But I too need to get to the range cause I need a lot of practice

Hope you all have a great Saturday

Oh, I know! Enough is enough! How much more of this to get those people in Washington to get their priorities straight! Women are arming themselves. I checked my CCW permits today and will go to that office on Monday to have my info updated with my new address. I need to go to the firing range to work with an instructor, as my classes were in December of 2012. No practice since. I had a laser grip put on my revolver last year.

All I can do is pray and be alert and aware. Take care. emoticon Roberta

Decades ago, I realized that my body's fat was my protection! This evening, I tuned in to a new visual imagery--the fat was hard, black, shiny iron armor! Even stronger protection! Then, by sticking to my primal, low carb nutrition and exercise plans, my body shrank to its ideal, healthy weight, and that iron armor just fell to the ground, revealing a strong, slender, healthy, and fit body with energy and stamina! WooooHooooo!!!!

I will use this imagery several times a day along with the weigh-loss CD. Tomorrow I will log my weight and measurements to compare to those in months to come. Will I feel 45 lbs lighter, say about November or December??? Bring out those smaller clothes from their hiding place in the closet! What JOY!

From time to time, I ask my friends what they do for fun. The response is a blank stare and then they talk about the household chores or yard work they have done for the day.

My only and continued fun is on my laptop and iPad. I miss dancing, golf, horseback vacations, singing, swimming, and practicing at the gun range.

I need to stop sabotaging my weight loss progress! (been researching that) This extra fat is keeping me from enjoying wearing my beautiful smaller size clothes again. I want to start having fun other than with my electronics! Walking outside and other exercise will help, but insomnia and chronic fatigue are not supporting my program. BUMMER!

Ok, stop the whining! Start walking! Set up a routine. Practice discipline! One day at a time!

Kathy, I'm so sorry about your wasp sting! What did the doctor say? You need to not run until it heals!!!

Did intervals for my workout today. We walked for two minutes and then ran/jogged for one minute. Repeat for a full 5k. Felt good when we were done! :) Sitting and relaxing now. Bed is next, as soon as I finish watching @midnight.

NIght!

Kathy - wow! That yellow jacket sting must be awful! Do you have allergies to it? Kind of scary that it is still swelling. Hope it goes down and that the itching and pain go away. I wonder if there is a bee repellent that can be worn when you are walking?? No fun.

Had a great time with my mom. She loved seeing the giraffes and we had fun at the God and Country festival in Nampa. Hard to see her leave yesterday. However, it is good to try to get back on my eating plan again...should help that I finished the pizza today. How do you eat healthy when your guest gets an upset stomach from eating fruit or veggies??

She is probably glad no one is forcing her to stay up until 12:30! emoticon

Hope you all are well! How was the picnic?

emoticon Got stung by a wasp yesterday on my walk, boy howdy did it hurt and still does. It stung me just above my shoe. By last night it looked like I had an intertube around my ankle it was swollen pretty bad.

The swelling is down a tiny bit this morning but it not only still hurts, not as bad, but it itches like crazy. emoticon

The strange thing is I was walking down a street with no sidewalks and very little traffic and this yellow jacket come out of nowhere to get me. I didn't see any others flying around it was like it was a loner and a mean one at that. At first I couldn't see what was hurting me then when I found the source I couldn't reach it to brush it off. What a strange dance I was doing. Finally got smart and used my water bottle to brush it off. I hope the swelling goes down soon. But even more so I hope it quits itching sooner.
None of the anti itch stuff is working. emoticon

Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone got to do and see everything they wanted to do and see today.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Oh my goodness! Love the emoticon Kathy!!

I won't be able to walk with you guys tomorrow. My mom is here emoticon and so I will be enjoying the day with her. (I invited her to the walk but she has a hard time going more than 5-10 minutes at a time).

Hope you all are having fun for the 4th! We will probably head to Marsing for fireworks on the 3rd. That way we won't be stressed about getting up early for work and my mom's drive home on Tuesday morning after having been up watching fireworks Monday night.

Have fun walking and enjoy the picnic tomorrow! How awesome!

I'm okay with an earlier walk. It looks like I will be joining you all. Let me know if we prefer 8 or 9. Kelli will not be joining us...she is starting a vacation!

Kathy a picnic lunch sounds like a great idea. Let us know what you decide to bring...besides blueberries!

Rachael are you ok with an earlier walk?

Christine good luck at the dentist.

I have no plans for the weekend, I usually don't stray far from home due to the crazy holiday drivers.

I plan on having a picnic lunch by the river after our walk, just because I thought it would be a pleasant change of routine. I just have figure out what I will take for a picnic. It has to be light because I plan on walking to Kathyrn Albertson's park I think it is around 3 miles so I will definitely get my steps in.

Kathy I love the blueberry information from John Tesh. I need to try that. I also loved the emoticons - too funny.

With the heat this week - Maybe we should start earlier then 10 am on Saturday. What do you think? I can do 8 or 9 am. 95 degrees is the forecast. I know that it's July 4th weekend, but I'm available if you still want to walk on Saturday. Let me know.

Hi Everyone!!!

Kathy I love the action emoticons!! I really like the hammering one! I am not sure if I will be able to make the walk or not. I have been at a dead run since we got back from vacation. We are also leaving Sunday for Three Island State park. Don's birthday is the 3rd so we are celebrating there this year.

Christine I think I will try the blueberry suggestion

Barb glad you had a fantastic time on your vacation.

Rachael this is for you


Barb this one is for you


I think Barb we planned to walk Kathryn Albertson's park. It is across from Ann Morrison on Americana. Right now the time is set for 10:00. Is this information still correct Sondra? So who will be joining the walk on Saturday?

Hi there.

Christine, the overtime is expected to get worse as we get closer to closing out the fiscal year. We usually finish closing it at the end of August and the pressure starts building now. Especially since we are "under budget" for the year.

Christine, the scene from the old movie Office Space where they take the printer to a field and club it to death comes to mind often lately...especially since our windows don't open.

I am taking Wednesday through Friday off and we are closed on the 4th. My mom is coming to see me Thursday. Yay!!

Blueberries. Kathy, that must be what I missed today! I blew up my food tracker. (Or I was just very proactive at getting my calories for tomorrow in, too?) Not sure why I chose to do so badly today. Probably too much time in my head trying to figure stuff out... Tomorrow is a new day and I'm glad for it! emoticon

Hope you all have a great week!!

Hi ladies. Sorry I've been MIA and that I missed the walk. Been trying to catch up from my trip. Had a blast in Tahoe and did lots of walking and hiking. Was happy to come home, but not as excited to go back to work.

Rachael, they totally need an emoji of a crazy woman throwing a computer out a seventh floor window! I could find uses for that! LOL!

How was the walk? Is there another one planned?

According to John Tesh

To slim down, eat a handful of blueberries before each mealů
According to the University of Michigan, that can reduce overall calorie consumption by 10%!
Because the phytochemicals in blueberries lower our hunger hormones.
And added bonus? The berries increase metabolism, and trigger genes that break down fat!

10:00 at your nature trail off of Glenwood. Yes I can be there.

Rachel I don't know the address but if you are coming from down town get on the connector and exit on to Chinden. Go all the way to Glenwood and turn right. Stay on Glenwood until you cross the river. At the light after you cross the river turn left. On your left hand side you will see a pond and there is a parking area there. That is where I will be unless Sondra tells me I am confused.

See you Saturday.

Hi there!

I would love to join you for the walk on Saturday, Sondra. 10 AM would work perfect. Are we walking on the nature trail you talked about? Could you give me an address or directions from downtown Boise?

Sorry I haven't had time to be on here much. Work and personal life have be CRAZY!! But I guess that keeps me out of trouble. emoticon

Have a great Friday tomorrow!
