Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Yesterday I was in severe energy saving mode .. I was having "problems" and hubby did suggest to take our walk like we did on Saturday .. and well --I could really do that because I needed a restroom close .. I don't think it was necessarily what I ate .. but my nerves finally coming to rest .. in my intestines .. *sigh* ..
I DID post my pictures in yesterday's blog ..
But .. he did make a suggestion of a mall walk, and that I went along with .. we went to Southridge .. which is a 2 level mall .. and first we had a light lunch, and then walked around the mall .. I did my 2 laps, and he was being nice and walking with me .. (normally he walks through the big stores and all .. I just stay in the mall .. ) but after my 2 laps, he left the last of the soda we shared with me on a chair, and he did his extra 2 laps his way .. while I sat and people watched ..
I did have to laugh, and had to take a picture .. Wouldn't you consider this an oximoron .. ?? I realize the reasoning behind it .. but it was kind of funny in my eyes .. store is closing but come and join our team .. Hmmmmmmmmmm
It worked out well .. between having problems, and well -- the shoes I was wearing on Saturday were NOTHING for support, and platform stilts .. so my feet are ouching .. so walking on the solid even ground really helped .. AND I got my walking in ..
But .. that's pretty much all I got in .. I didn't hit rock bottom as hard as I thought .. You know that feeling after looking soooooooooooooooo forward to something, and then it's here and it's gone .. but I had a quiet day .. and couldn't justify recording "off my butt" time on my fitness record yesterday ..
"Off my butt" is that extra time that isn't recorded exercise, but the daily stuff I do throughout the day that does not consist of my backside being planted .. The extra walking at the office, parking at the end of the lots to walk to the stores, walking AROUND the stores, running up and down the steps doing laundry at home, those times that are activity, but not recorded ... planned exercise .. I saw some people doing that, and realized, that that is considered movement .. and just because it's not "organized" movement; it's not recorded .. I did a study at the office, and found out that there are days that I'm only SITTING on my backside 1-2 hours .. the rest of the time I'm up and moving .. and ANY movement is better than none .. :)
Miss Manners should be very proud of me .. I sent out my "initial" thank you's out via email yesterday to the staff of Bearings ... and then I'll make thank you's to send to those that aren't on my email list, and/or specifically gave me something ..
But my yesterday was very quiet .. After we got home, I sat and watched TV, and then went upstairs to play with my puzzle .. but more sitting .. so really never could justify entering "off my butt" time .. because my movement consisted of getting up and going upstairs, and coming downstairs for making my strawberry sundae .. and going back upstairs .. and coming downstairs to bring my dish down .. lol .. so it was a very quiet day .. BUT I still got some movement ..
Today .. the sun is out, and the temperatures are beautiful .. I have the day off, and we're going up to the Dells, to spend some time in the town .. We'll walk the downtown area (to get our steps) .. we'll play mini golf, we'll take a boat ride .. We'll use some of the coupons that he's gathered the last few months .. and I'm sooo looking forward to it .. a day out in the sun, and fresh air ..
Yes .. while we're there, we'll use our free money at the casino, but that's it .. I really don't feel like "playing" .. but since we have the free money, and we're up there .. we're taking care of that as well .. :) but I'm looking forward to spending the day outside in the sunshine and fresh air !!!!!
Tomorrow I may be doing my blog from the road .... cuz I'll be going with hubby to the downtown casino for "olfarts day" free money .. and then we're going to the cell store to pull my phone away from the company account .. That way hubby doesn't have to come all the way home to pick me up; and then meet at the store .. OR we don't have to sit and watch the clock .. so I don't know where I'll be posting my blog .. :) but rest assured .. I will be posting something somewhere !!! :)
Okay --- Hubby is ready to go .. so gotta get myself going here .. :)
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY !!!! I'm planning on it !!!!!!!
