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 !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
My first day of retirement was wonderful .. The sky was blue, they sun was bright .. and the fun was there to be had .. :) Hubby did a wonderful job .. if I wanted to stop .. he did .. I got some pictures that I wanted .. and I belong to a page that pushes shooting pictures, over eating ..if you're out and about taking photos, you're not in the kitchen with food .. :) Well -- this week the challenge is patriotic .. and I'm proud of the pictures that I got .. :)
The one that I have been wanting to get a photo of for along time that just hit my funny bone .. he actually stopped for me ....
Hubby is one of those road trip drivers .. that he gets from point A to point B without stopping .. (unless it's a must) .. and that was just so super that he stopped when I asked .. :)
The casino was fun .. and I got my piece of luggage for this week and we got our reservations for next week's overnighter that he's taking me on .. :) ... I did alot of walking around, and while I didn't come home with much money .. I came home with money .. I went up to tell him I was done .. because I was starting to play dumb .. and that means I'm tired .. being tired is not a way to be in the casinos .. sooo .. I told myself .. "self .. you can come back anytime .. if you're starting to push yourself .. it's time to stop" .. I pretty much stayed with minimum betting .. and the machine played well .. played with me .. and I enjoyed myself .. :) The casino was noisy and I noticed the noisy machines ... people were playing minimum betting .. so I was safe .. I was going to have a good time, and I did .. :)
When we stopped on the way home at the wayside .. while hubby was inside, I got out and stretched my legs, and did a few laps around the rest stop .. so I got somemore stepping in ..
We got home around 4:30ish .. after stopping at Culvers in Clintonville (up north) for lunch .. and while it was warm .. I had 7000 and change steps .. So I went out and told hubby that I was taking my "Getaway walk" .. one of my short walks ...and went out .. it was warm enough that I sweated .. er ... glistened and sparkled all over the place even for that short time .. and closed out at 8700 and change steps .. 8000 is now my new minimum .. now that I don't have to worry about walking around the office and a desk job ..
About 6:30 .. we had our other quesidea ... because both of us were getting hungry ..
This morning .. my scale is at an all time high .. ?? I'm very sore, and I want to say some of it is that .. but I know I've been having "THE" talk with hubby .. and eating at least 2 bigger meals each day .. I told him, that I shouldn't eat that much .. and he told me "but you're exercising more" .. and I told him .. I understand, but let ME find my happy medium .. I'm not going to not eat enough, but I have to find that happy medium .. I'm in a new world, and out of my norm .. I have to find that mid spot .. so for now I'm in the middle of trial and error ..
He's out on his fun money run .. and asked if I wanted to come with .. This is what I was afraid of .. that he would want to keep me running .. but he's actually stepping aside when I say no thank you .. I'm happy about that .. I had my fun yesterday .. now today .. I want to play with my cards, and I want to get my shoes on after I finish here, and get myself cleaned up .. and start my day by going out for a walk .. while it's still cool outside .. :)
Since hubby doesn't know if he's going to be stopping home between his fun run, and dartball .. I may just go out and get myself some salad ..We don't have salad here .. I have cherries from mom, and bananas .. oh .. and a carmel, chocolate apple .. that's what I have for roughage .. so -- need to run to the store and get some more ..
Yes -- I'm in the process of finding my center here .. but we're starting out with a walk this morning .. and we'll go from there .. :)
Unfortunately .. the get together with the crew fell apart .. so I don't have to worry about watching the clock .. it's a day just for me ... :)
With that being said .. :) I'm going to go catch up on my postings, get my shoes and socks on, and start my day !!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday ... :)
