I'm looking forward to your pics from the 1000 Springs trip, especially the river cruise. I'm excited for you!!!

The FitOne is next Saturday. And, I was just invited to the BSU game on Friday. And I have SB on Thursday. And Bunco on Saturday night. Gonna be a busy weekend!!

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.

Finally heading out to the 1000 springs resort on the 28th - the 30th. I am excited because I have never done the river cruise before. It should be really nice. Leaves at noon.

Barb, how did FitOne go? Hope you had lots of fun!

Kathy pictures?

I heard about those craters when Loni and you told me to sign up for the crawl. Did you get some pics that you are willing to share?

Christine, is camping season over for you now? This cooler weather is just about right!

I'm doing the FitOne this weekend with at least one friend. Others were invited, but I don't know how many will show up and how many will walk together.

yesBarb destination races are just a reason to visit a place, I guess I could just go but it is more fun to do it with a group.


How was your camping trip Christine?

This Saturday I am doing the crater crawl. Did you know we had volcanic craters between Boise and Mtn home? I didn't. Hopefully I can get some decent pictures.

We definitely need to plan a walk on the Greenbelt!!

Destination runs? Is that like Destination Wedding? Using the run as an excuse to go visit the place you really want to see? If so, more power to you!!! Just listening to your training regime is wearing me out!

Christine, that's another good thing about being retired. You can show up in the middle of the week and get good camping spots! Are you going soon?

A friend just invited me to join her at the BSU opening football game tomorrow. I'm pretty excited about getting to go!! Taking apart a swing set this weekend and turning it into a planter. It's made of redwood or cedar or some other wood. Nice thick beams that will make a very nice planter for my strawberries!

Green belt is mostly open, Only part that is closed that I know about is down by the fairground. They lost a bridge close to the plantation golf course so unless you want to swim the river. HaHa.

Greenbelt by Julia Davis and Ann Morrison is all open.

So when Christine gets back and it cools down we need to plan a walk.

Normally on Saturday I have long runs but I can work you all in cause I want to. I will just do my long run on Sunday. This coming Saturday he has me going 8 miles just thinking about it makes me tired. He has increased the rowing time next week and I think I will start some light weight training. I ask myself everyday What the heck was I thinking signing up for an Ultra training. I think I should be committed.

I messed up today and signed up for a destination race on the same day as the Sawtooth relay that I already committed to. I really want to do the Yellowstone race well maybe in 2019 of course I want to do the Shenadoah valley in 2019 also. Destination race are just suppose to be fun so far all the ones I have done have been a blast.

Ok enough about me, what going on in your lives?

Barb, for some reason we can't make any reservations to the high desert wetland, it is BLM land, but they said if we get there in the middle of the week we should be okay.

Hi Kathy, how is the training going?

Kathy, we do need to get together! We'll have to work around your training. Is the Green Belt open yet? Or maybe Table Rock? Or some other hike. Friday's and Saturday's both work for me.

Christine, that camping looks like a great place for bird watching. Have you made reservations?

Trying to get motivated to get stuff done right now. It's not working! LOL!!

Kathy I LOVE using the rowing machine. I should be doing that way more often.

I am so SICK of this smoke! Yes, it may ruin my trip to anywhere! I did get my walk in today and I felt much better after that.

Here is the link of another place I would really like to get to this year.

I have a coach for the ultra training. He has me doing trail runs and a lot of strectching exercises. He is now adding the rowing machine and I think soon he will add weights. I do weights occasionally but not consistant. That will change.

If the smoke has cleared out Burns would be a nice place to go camping.

I need a chef to fix my meals and should not be allowed to eat out. I have to get my diet under control once again. I was on maintenance for almost two years and then I blew it. shame on me.

Barb we need to get together one of these days, I still have those tokens.

Hi Barb, yep the eclipse was great!!! Yeah, I am still trying to get my steps in, which I need to go work on now.

emoticon emoticon emoticon This summer is going by fast!!! I am trying to find a good place to go camp right now. 32 miles from Burns, OR is starting to look like a good plan.

I too watched the eclipse through funny glasses.
Went to Emmett to do so. Traffic on the way to Emmet was very light. I thought yay I won't have no trouble going home. Wrong. The traffic to go home was bumper to bumper stop and go for about 5 hours. I out waited the traffic jam. Then I forgot the fair was in process and got caught in that mess. Oh well.

Christine I too have a lot of body work to do. This hiatus I have been on as cost me I am carry some extra pounds back to the program.

Barb I am doing the half at fitone, I think, it is what I signed up for, but not sure that I won't drop down. No not training for the full, I am crazier then that. Training for an Ultra, specifically the Weiser River Ultra. Now training for it and doing it are not the same. I have not yet signed up for it.

Have a great Tuesday everyone.

Welcome back Kathy!! Yes, I'm doing the FitOne. 5k. A couple of friends are gonna walk/run it with me. Should be fun!

What are you training for? A full?

Christine, how is the body project going? Still getting your steps in?

My main project has been the "body" project, even though I don't eat as well as I should.

I got a Fitbit and it has really helped inspire me to get my steps. I am still working on getting my weight down and I still have a ways to go. I may need to change my goal to a different number though. I am thinking somewhere in the mid 30's.

What are you training for? Congrats on the four half marathons!!! emoticon

After it cools down a bit, or a lot, we will have to go for a walk on the green belt.

With this weekend Bridge of the Gods Half marathon I have completed 4 official halfs. What was I thinking. I have 2 more scheduled. I dare not tell you what I am training for now. I have lost my flipping mind.

Christine what projects you got going now days? How is your hubby?

Barb are you doing FitOne this year? If so what distance?

Later alligators.

The white water rafting is Monday, August 7th. I'm really looking forward to it. But also, pretty nervous. But, if something scares you, you should face it, right?

I get to sleep in tomorrow! My workout partner is taking some Girl Scouts camping next week, so she needs to take tomorrow to finish getting ready. That means I'm on my own for my workout. And I can sleep in and hit the gym mid-morning. Yippee!!

The cooler weather has been nice. Doesn't look like it's going to stick around for long tho. DH plans to go for a bike ride on Sunday in Weiser. Hope he goes early enough that it's not too hot. I did just find out that I will be going on a white water rafting trip. It's a work-related team building activity. Sounds like fun!!

It is an awesome picture. You should be proud!

I need to clean out the garage I want an entertainment center to replace the old white bookshelves we've been using since we were married. My garden spot needs all of the weeds killed. We have a swing set that needs taken down and turned into planter boxes. I need to plant a new plant and add soil to my strawberries and tomatoes. And, of course, my entire house needs a deep clean. Just a few of the projects. Oh...and two chairs that need to be painted. No boredom here!! LOL!

Glad you guys did so well in softball this year! One of my good friends used to play for Micron years back, (she is retired now). She tried to help me learn how to catch and throw, just doing that wore me out! LOL

Where is that store? I'm glad you found what you needed for your project. Fantastic picture!

We did not win. I didn't suck, so I'll call it a win for me personally. Plus, we had fun. I have a few outdoor projects I'd like to get done. Hope it cools off soon so I can get them done!

Best of luck tomorrow!!! I will be cheering you in spirit!!

Went to Overland lumber today. I love that store! So different than Home Depot! They actually spend time with you and help you get a project done that looks professional. We ordered Pine bead board from Boise Cascade. They really have quality products. We are going to do a wainscotting in the bathroom, then put up a board on top of that, and then add hooks to the board.

Today's weather was awesome, I walked 7,000 steps before 11:00 o' clock! That hill to get to Albertson's is steep... but I like getting there so I can drink their water! :-)

The high is only supposed to be in the 90's and it is cooler by the river. Should be a fun last game of the season. We play the #2 team (we are currently #1). Hoping I do better than "not suck"!

We won our SB game and I didn't suck! LOL! One more game for the Spring season next Tuesday. Taking a friend with me to be my own cheering squad. LOL! Luckily, it is at Willow near the river. Much cooler down there.

Cleaning out the closets on these hot days is the right plan. Stay inside where it's cool. Hoping to get all of my steps in early in the morning so I can work inside the rest of the day.

Kelli, how is the summer going? Are you doing the Fit One this September?

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

emoticon I got lost! I have been so busy cleaning out my closets during this heat wave. I have been managing to get a walk in early but not today. But it was productive anyway.

How did your softball game turn out Barb? I hope it was fun!

Hi Kelli. Did you get to try out the fishing raft?

Hi ladies!!! Sorry, I got lost!! So good to see you both here!

I've managed to kill my cucumbers, but the tomatoes are doing great.

Kelli, I hope that WW works for you. It worked for me when I did it. Would love to go back to the group I had before. So much fun.

Christine, I'll try to do better about posting here too. You are doing a great job leading this team and we will feel it while you are gone. We will try to help out!!

Do either of you know if the Greenbelt is open yet? If so, maybe we can plan a walk??

Christine- If you go off grid, I will make sure to post a couple of times and check for new users.

Going off grid is way more fun than being on a website anyway!!

We are headed out! Talk to you next week.

Thanks Kelli, I feel the same way about your posts. You are such an upbeat person.

Not sure what is going to happen if I go off the grid for Stanley and so on this summer. I guess I will just keep this going for people who want to meet up and walk, and things like that! :-)

I have heard really good things about Weight Watchers but I have never actually tried it. I hope you have good success with it!. emoticon

Thanks Christine for the anniversary wishes. I can't believe it has been 8 years.

We had the raft sent to my mom's so we haven't gotten to use it yet. Hopefully Sunday morning I will be out on the river.

How fun! I love Newport and am hoping to take at least one day to get over there and play.
I love Donnely, we haven't been to Stanley in a long time. I might have to put that on the list before the cold sets in.

Yep, kindergarten.

I am doing weight watchers and I keep going back! It will come and I am sticking to it. I just need to get my head back in the right frame of mind. After vacation, I am hoping I can get the right mindset and start actually losing.

I see there isn't much participation going on here, but keep posting. People will show back up. Your doing great at leading this team. I always smile when I see you posting here.

Have a great day!! And a fabulous 4th if I don't get back before then.

Happy anniversary (late)!!! How did you like the fishing raft? I have seen some of those at Bruno Dunes! Looks like fun!

So glad you are having a fun summer! We are too! We just got back from Oregon. We went to Eugene and my sister bought a condo in Newport.

We will probably spend most of August in Stanley or Donnely.

Hahaha Blake can be so funny. I cannot believe he will be going to kindergarten! Boy times flies!

I hope you will keep going on the weight loss, sometimes it does take a long while. It sure did for me, and I still have some more weight to lose.

This team has been a real struggle to lead (if you can call it that). Not too many people that want to join in. Oh well, I will keep this going if I can. emoticon

We are having a fun summer. Getting ready to head to Oregon on Saturday for a week. My 8 anniversary is today and hubby bought me a new fishing raft to try out. I can't wait!!!

Then next month we start kindergarten. Holy moly where did the time go. August 7 is the first day. Blake isn't too excited about it yet. But I am! Lol... he says he can be smart without school. Mom has different ideas.

Christine- you give me hope that I can do it and that slow and steady will win the race! That is just so awesome!

Barb- what are you up too! While I don't chat much here, I do stalk this page, and haven't seen you much. Everything okay?

Waving to everyone else!!!!

Hi everyone!! I'm loving the warmer weather!! Air conditioning is not my friend so it is nice to be able to be outside to warm up.

I have some nice tomato plants and a couple of strawberry plants. My cucumbers are looking sickly. I hope they survive!!

Haven't been here in a long while, hope everyone is doing well! I just got back from a quick (rainy) camping trip but it was fun anyway! I also have a new Fitbit and I am getting used to it too. I love how it keeps your active minutes for you. I think I missed putting in lots of them before.

Is there a community garden somewhere near you? That might be a good compromise?

I got a few more weeds pulled, but still have a quite a few to go. Maybe I'll have more time next weekend?

We went to Lucky Peak to see the Rooster Tail. Talk about crowded! It was fun though! And the wind was really kicking, I was super glad I put my hair into a side braid. LOL

Barb, I want to put in a garden but I always seem to get too busy camping and playing. Maybe this year.

The wind was pretty bad! I walked from the library to the post office and almost couldn't breathe! LOL!

I did put some more dirt in my plants, but had to bring them back in pretty quickly. The wind was kicking the heck out of them. I spent about five minutes on the garden spot. Needs about five more hours! Maybe by the time I get it cleared it will be warm enough to plant. LOL!

Brickyard Steakhouse was pretty good. Too expensive for me to ever go there when I have to pay! And, too slow. We were there for 3 hours!! Holy moly!!

I agree...enough moisture already! What I don't understand...went for a walk today and there were at least two different yards that had their sprinklers going?!?!?! Who needs sprinklers right now??

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.
