Day 8 and still alive!

Sunday, August 08, 2010

Today is DAY 8 of the challenge.

I spun a 5, which means I should do 50 cardio minutes. I didn't do it exactly, but maybe.

Here's the deal.

I was invited to my neighbors to attend a women's brunch. She lives on the next road over.

Instead of taking the car, DH and I decided it would be fun to track through the woods to her road, and take Winsten with us.

It was lightly raining, and very wet and over grown.

We were literally forging a path through the woods, following the light markings of a deer trail.

Getting our feet wet, jeans wet, sweater wet and Winsten wet, we were having a great time. The road came up too fast for me.

DH and Winsten turned around and went back through the woods to home, while I continued my trek to my neighbor's house.

We ladies had a wonderful time, even though I was drinking "leaded" coffee. Caffiene does strange things to me, like make me grind my teeth and I can't shut up. I had half an orange cranberry muffin (the big size) and six grapes. Oh, yeah, also one half of a deviled egg.

The conversation flowed with all sorts of interesting topics, and before I knew it, it was nearly 3 in the afternoon!

The Red Sox are playing the Yankees today, so I had to get home to be sure to see the game.

Down the road and through the woods I go, getting wet all over again, but having a terrific time.

Got home, spent 40 minutes in the kitchen, putting together Cranberry Bread Pudding and slicing up all the veggies for dinner tonight.

So, I got in 30 minutes walking (hiking actually), and 40 minutes in the kitchen.

I don't know if I can qualify for the 50 minutes, but I sure had a great day!
