Well I need way more practice on the prayer behind my back pose! I had trouble getting the bottom part of my hands together! Is that for better posture?

Wow sorry you didn't have one of your players! I would hate having to take the "out"... dang I hope she comes back soon!

emoticon I sat almost all day on my back patio doing next to nothing. What a slacker I was being today, hope tomorrow I am back to walking and other fitness. :-)

Imagine holding your hands in the prayer position in front of you. That's normal prayer. Now, imagine your hands in the same position, but behind your back. That's reverse. I was amazed I could do it!

SB is good. We're 1 and 2. We lost the last game partly because we were short one girl. So, every time that person was up in the line up, we had to take an out. AND, we only had three in the outfield. Still had fun though!

Isn't the weather gorgeous!!!! I've sat outside and walked outside and just soaked it all up! Woot!!!

Well I certainly got lost on this thread! Too busy doing my sewing up cycles for my camping trip! That and tons of yardwork and walking every day. I have no idea what a reverse prayer is but it sounds excellent!!!

Hope softball is still going strong!!! How is your team doing this year?

Yoga was one of the old/familiar instructors. I learned I can do reverse prayer!

I'm with you...it is time for walking weather!

You should totally go check out the downtown market. Lots of stuff to see. And eat!

Starting softball tonight. If you're bored at 9, come on down to Willow Lane and watch us play!

I have never been to one of those downtown markets. I should check them out sometime! How was the yoga? Was that one of your new classes?

I want my walking weather back... ASAP! I hate to complain though so many people are still dealing with snow!

Looks like I will go to yoga early Saturday morning and then get my grocery shopping done. And then the library! I think the markets in downtown Boise are going to open soon! I love going to those, but I don't like the drive to downtown.

If I get to go back, I'll take some pictures. Who knows when I will have the chance though.

Good thing we have so many wonderful things to see around here. Means you can walk a lot!!

Today was beautiful! I think it'll be a little cooler tomorrow, but then it's starting to warm up!

I know that view is incredible!!! You should take a camera up there with you!

I tell people that I walk for the views I see while I am walking, and I really do! I also like to go into the Simplot park and I work out with lots of standing stuff.

Today I was wearing a sleeveless top and a light weight jeans jacket! I hope we get lots more of this weather!!

I was in MUNORTH for 7 hours Tuesday. While I was there, I got a tour of the building and got to see the view. The whole back wall is windows looking right out at the foothills. Gorgeous!!!

I left work an hour early today and instead of going to the gym, I took a walk around the block. Had to wear a sweatshirt, but what nice weather!!! Taking another walk tomorrow with my workout partner. We're going to stop intermittently and do exercises like lunges, TBX, squats, etc. Might be warming up!!!

I think that path needs to be improved, unless you have some really old shoes, that you don't care what happens to them. :-)

Wow I am ready for spring but not the 105 heat of summer! LOL

I didn't walk that hill today because I had to go into town for an appt. I hope to get up that hill tomorrow though. I really love the view at the top! I only made it to the park today.

Did you walk anywhere today?

One of the guys I work with said that the "path" is dirt and/or gravel. It might be improved at a later date.

That hill is a killer! I haven't walked it, but I do know I have trouble driving up it! LOL!!

That is a good place to take photos. I would love it if I saw you on the trail! Maybe we will run into each other when it's a little warmer...but before it is 105'!

Hey Barb, you might see me walking that hill!

If you ever get time while you are over there try that hill, it is a workout for me! I did it today.

I am not sure about a walkway between the two but it would sure be nice if there was one.

I like the walk behind the building and I have used it for taking photos with my Canon. Talk about some awesome views!

You do have to have a badge to get in, sorry. As the weather warms up, if I have to go over there, I'll try to walk. If I can find a safe path there and back.

Looking like we might have Spring pretty soon! Hope I didn't just jinx us! LOL!

Oh I have been seeing that shuttle!!! I did not realize what it was for! I also see a lot of people walk over to Albertson's that are coming from there. Interesting, Micron north. Do you have to get a badge to be in the building? I would love to go to the top floor of that building and look out at the view !!

That is a great picture!

The old Simplot building is called Micron North. LOL! I actually went there today for a meeting. We have a shuttle that runs back and forth between the main plant and Micron North all day long. Only had to walk 1/2 a mile to get to the shuttle stop!

Love the idea of Bronco Blue carpet at the gym! A little much for in a house, but sounds nice for a gym.

I am so happy for today's weather! It started out cold but warmed up nicely! Then I went to the gym, so I could use the rowing machine. That works so well for me with my back view. Lots of people at Johnny's today, I was surprised!

We got new carpet at Johnny's Fit Club and it is Bronco Blue! Your bullpen sounds super nice! Oh I noticed that Micron took over the Simplot Building near the soccer fields. I like to dream of how nice it would have been for my home overlooking the mountains. I will see if any of my iPhone pictures turned out, if so I will post.

That's too bad! That would have been a cool business to work with! I noticed there is a detour to get to the Birds of Prey, so I'm guessing there's construction somewhere around that area. Tis construction season! LOL!

We got new carpet in our bullpen. Had to pack everything up and live out of boxes for a week and a half (carpet was delayed), but it sure does look nice! They're replacing the carpet in all of the bullpens in our building, and they started with us. I'm glad they did and that we're done. Should be interesting to see what else they have planned.

Oh that must have felt great to lay down again! So many people sick this year. I hope everyone gets well soon and stays that way.

Hey it is almost time to go visit Kuna's Bird of Prey area! I was looking at "Idaho, off the beaten Path" and I need to see if "Whitewater Shop River Tours" is still in business.It was/is based in Kuna, and offers excursions in that area.

Dang I looked it up and it is gone.... darn!

Listening to your body is always the right thing to do. :-) Yes, I think spring will be here soon enough. I personally cannot wait!!! Oh yes, if you hear anything from your co-workers that would be great! I haven't been to the library but I did pick up a used book at the Idaho Youth Ranch called "Idaho River tours". I had to read the one on owls first though. It was written for children but I didn't care, it had some things in it that I didn't know. :-)

I'm using the computer by the sliding glass door so I can be in the sun!! Looks like we might have spring pretty soon! If I was feeling better, I would go for a walk while the sun is still shining. Planning to take it easy for the rest of the day and start back into exercising (starting slow) tomorrow.

I know some of my coworkers have gone hiking and have some good trails. Maybe I'll have to get some ideas from them. AND remember to check the library for hiking guides. I keep forgetting to do that!

Grays Lake is more of a marsh, and yes, sometimes they have T. Swans. I have never seen one! Today was such a good one for me, this weather is making me think about camping, hiking and the green belt. :-) It would be so nice if more people would share where they like to go to relax in Idaho... I am thinking about sending out a letter to ALL of these members I never see. LOL

I cannot believe how much the Treasure Valley has grown! I remember my house was on the edge of the desert when we brought it. We only had to step outside our door to hike, or check out the mountains. I do like the new sidewalks and trees near Simplot's Soccer fields though. I can wear nicer shoes to walk in. Tee hee!!!

Now softball season is a sure sign that spring is coming! Woot! Seems like your team had a great season last year!

Now that I am retired I try not to go grocery shopping on Saturdays, whew so many people. My DH was telling me the other day that we are the fastest growing area in the US? Something like that! Wow I am glad I usually get out of town during camping season. And it seems like I may want to go to Grays Lake, which is not a lake, this year. It is near Idaho Falls. Lots of birds and some rare ones too! I would love to see a Trumpeter Swan someday. Have you been planning any vacations for this year?

Menu planning was good. Got it all done, grocery list made and then went shopping Saturday. Now I remember why I prefer to shop on Fridays. So many people out on Saturdays!!!

Got an email from the manager of our softball team. Time to sign up for the Spring season!!! Woot!!!

Well my sidewalks are clear too! Must be time for a snow storm! Ha ha ha! Did you get the hail storm we got earlier today? That was wild!!! Glad your DH came and got you during the one in your area! Mine came and picked me up in a full blown snow storm.

Sewing project will be bedspread and shams, but I am really wanting to redo a ladies chair for my desk in a gold finish. I have seen some in Pinterest and I really like how they look.

How did your menu planning go? I am going to try really hard to eat the Spring salad mix before it goes bad this time around. :-)

The sidewalks around here are getting clear, because of the sun, not the neighbors. And it looks like it's going to warm up a little next week. Looking forward to walking to the library tomorrow. Last week, it started hailing on me just as I got there. DH was nice enough to come get me.

I am still helping DH when he needs me. Staying very busy and currently fighting off a cold. What's the next project? Looking forward to seeing pictures of it!

I guessed right on the photo! Gorgeous shot! You need to stop posting beautiful pics of Idaho...people will want to move here. LOL!

The coins were in a container with a lid. I put the container and my water in a bag that I carried on my back. Made it easier!

Walking, carrying coins? Not for me, I have trouble carrying water, ha ha! I missed my walk today to hang out with DH, but I need to get the rest of my steps pretty soon! Busy day, per usual, for you Barb. I just about froze to death running errands!

I have done similar workouts. They ARE hard!! But they are good for you!

Walked to the ICCU about a mile from my house to cash in some coins. My bag was a lot lighter on the way home!

Tomorrow is yoga and a walk to the library. And laundry. Dinner is already in the fridge and just needs to cook. Should be a good day!

I did my three mile walk, and I added in wind sprints, start at the base of a slight hill, run up as fast as I can for about 10 - 15 yards. I did it 5 times... wow it is hard!!! Have you ever done anything like that Barb?

Puttering around the house is my favorite thing to do too! Nice!!!

You must have sent the cold wind over here! I walked to the post office and then around the neighborhood with my workout partner. My face froze both times!

I slept in until 7:30. Then I puttered around the house. Read my book and played WWF. Pretty nice, lazy day!

It *was* chilly!! Didn't seem so bad when looking outside. But once out there, the wind bit in! I walked to the gym and home. Then I walked back to the Chevron to get sodas for DH. Took a scarf with me the second time!

Trying to decide if I'm going to walk to the P.O. tomorrow or drive. I guess it'll depend on how cold it is and how much time I have. And how much energy!

Absolutely!! Hoping that we can start walking trails by the end of March, first of April. I kind of want it to stay a little too cold to walk outside for a few more weeks. Don't want the plants to bud too soon!

My coat got a little bit wet today and geeze water is heavy, hahaha! Well I have a few pounds from this winter to get rid of too. I notice it a lot when I am walking. I will be heading to Barber Park pretty soon for a short hike. It is so close to my house!

Gosh 5.24 miles would tire me out too! Lt me know any good ones you find... okay?

Good idea to check the library! I do know where it is! LOL! I haven't done any real hiking around here, other than Table Rock. I need to get out and hike more.

I did walk all over Kuna today. Walked to ICCU, Albertson's, the post office, the library and then home. Walked 5.24 miles in one hour and 52 minutes. I was not in a hurry. And I was sure happy to get home and sit down!

My newest hiking book is "The Day Hiker's Guide to Stanley, Idaho.

I also have "The hiker's Guide to Idaho" 1984. Still lots of good information in there. I also have the "Idaho Off the beaten Path". There is always the library though. :-) I do like to hike around up at the Lake too!

Are there any hikes you like to take in Kuna? I love going to the Black's creek Reservoir near there, and go around the lake a bit, and usually there are cows though! Hahaha! I like early spring for that one.

I did sleep in! And on Sunday I walked outside a little bit. Almost spring-like!!

Do you have any good trails that you really like? I think there is a book (or two) out there with hiking trails in the area.

Oh that is a good plan Barb... I will be doing some hiking too. I really do need to drop a few pounds so I can carry all of my gear though!

Hope you got a chance to sleep in this morning! And, today sure seemed cold to me! I got my walk in, but it took two tries to get to the top of Albertson's. Sorry you lost your workout buddy for a bit! I know you will get it all done though! :-)

I do hope/plan to hike Table Rock this year. I also hope to get out on some other hiking trails as well.

This winter has been so much more mild than last winter. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop! I get to sleep in tomorrow!!! My workout buddy is out of town for the weekend, so I am on my own. I will have to force myself to get moving so I can get my grocery shopping done before everyone gets off work and the stores get crowded!

Oh it would be fun, we could watch the people climbing Table Rock,,, hahaha! I don't go there for fitness, per say, but I do go to take photographs. Are you going to climb Table Rock again this year?

Today was pretty busy! I did get a 75 minute walk in so I am pretty happy with that. I am starting to look forward to spring though, it was on the chilly side today!

It would be fun to go the Gardens! I don't think my DH would enjoy it and he's always cranky when I go somewhere without him. But, if you have dates in mind, I might be able to work something out. Thanks! And giving $2 is no problem.

I've been on the go since I got up. And my yoga class turned into a Pilates class. Great workout so it wore me out! Then home for laundry, library, etc. Falling asleep while typing so it must be time for bed. LOL!

Yay for your strawberry plant being outside! This weather has been incredible this winter! All of our snow is gone too. It’s up in the hills where it belongs but I don’t think we’re getting the snowpack that we need this year unfortunately.

I am really thinking about going to the gardens this weekend. I hope we get to go I’m doing a photo challenge for the month of January to help with the boredom and I have a few photos I need to take. Have you ever been to the gardens? Would you like to meet up and go there sometime? I can get people in for free but usually ask that people give two dollars as it helps the gardens.

All of my snow is gone! I even put my strawberry back outside yesterday and overnight. So pleasant outside!!!

Maybe snowshoes will go on sale in March and you can get them then?

Are you heading to the Gardens this weekend?

Got all my grocery shopping and running around done today. I'll head to yoga in the morning and then walk to the library a little later in the day.

Yeah the snow can stay up in the mountains!!!! I got my walk in today and it was amazing!!! Glad I didn't get the snow shoes this winter. Maybe next year! It is almost time to go visit the Gardens this year. If I am well (from this cold) I will go next Saturday. Hope this weather holds!

There is something going around! I hope you are feeling better.

The weather is so nice! I put on my coat this morning when I left the house. At my first stop, I took it off and then didn't need it for the rest of the day. Hoping we don't see it dump snow and bury us! More snow in the mountains would be good though.

I got lost!!! Sorry! I have also been sick but that is another story altogether!

I think we are really lucking out this winter for weather! Last year I lost count of how many days we had snow on the ground!

Your books sound really interesting. I haven't been reading at all but keep thinking I should. I have a Nora Roberts book that I haven't read yet on my nightstand so.... hopefully soon. If not I know I will when I am camping this year.

I walked to the Walgreen's to get a prescription for DH and some cold meds (again, for DH). it's a little over three miles round trip. On the way there, my face and fingertips were pretty cold. By the time I got done in Walgreen's, I was really warm. Walked home with my coat open and no gloves!!

Just finished James Patterson's "Count to Ten". Started James Patterson's The People vs. Alex Cross. Both are the next in series that he writes. Read almost 200 pages today and really want to read the rest of it tonight!!!

Barb, sorry about the drive and the bill. You know how I feel about morning!

Today was pretty nice for a walk, but my fingers were a bit cold at the very end of the walk. Time to break out the heavy duty gloves! hahaha. I really hope the wind doesn't kick up because then it gets really, really cold!

Still deciding about the snowshoes, I still need to order a new baton... ;-)

It'll cost a little under $500 to get the car fixed. A lot less than we thought it might be. The only bad part is that it won't be ready until Tuesday evening. The boy works at 4:30 Tuesday morning. Guess who gets to take him in to work. Sigh..

I did walk to the gym, walked on the treadmill and then walked home. Not as long a walk as I'd hoped for.

I can totally see you on the Simplot Soccer Field with snowshoes!! If you think it's worth it, I say go for it!!

Awesome! So glad your YakTrax work! Are you still looking for snow shoes?

I was going to walk to the library today, but things didn't work out that way. DS's vehicle started to shimmy and we had to take it to our mechanic. I had to follow him there and bring him back. Oh well. Tomorrow might be nice enough to walk outside some!

Great idea on the traction things! And so sweet that your boots have last so long! I hope mine last that long too. Planning to walk to the library tomorrow. Depending on how the sidewalks look after the weather we have tonight.

I'd love to go to the Gardens with you next year! I can almost guarantee that DH won't want to go, but I'd love to come see it.

I decided to get some traction things that go over your boots at REI tomorrow Only $20. And I’m thinking somebody said the weather may get better so I might get a couple of days of walking in.

Yes I’m wearing my Sorrels that I bought 30 years ago and they’re still good, so funny but yeah, boots come in handy don’t they!!

Barb I was thinking you and your DH should join us next year at the gardens!! We got advanced tickets and they were only $10 each. We went on a Saturday, and if your husband doesn’t want to come next year you are invited anyway!!!

I always think I should go and then never get around to it. Gorgeous picture!

How was your Christmas? We went to Mackay and got zero snow. DD and her BF couldn't make it up because of the snow in the valley. They did come to our house later. It was good seeing them.

Taking time off from work until the 2nd. Enjoying doing nothing!

Yay for warm feet! So glad you got your warm boots!

I did stay warm at the Gardens. We got lucky and the wind was down! It was so pretty you should go sometime.

I got black with orange trim. Used them today so I could shovel the snow. My feet stayed warm the whole time!!

Did you stay warm in the Botanical Gardens?

Really glad I didn't have to drive anywhere until after the roads had been plowed and treated and the sun had come out. Turned into a pretty nice day!

I will take pictures, for sure! I love this event!!! But boy is it ever going to be cold! Hahaha I will be wearing all kinds of snow gear! I am going to rejoin again in January and I can bring people with me so we may want to plan something for spring!

I love my snow boots for snow, but I really love my Uggs better! They come up higher. Both of mine are black. What color did you get? Something bring and cheerful?

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.

Kathy, the Weiser River Ultra sounds awesome! What kind of training are you doing?

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.

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.

I went once and it was great fun, I do think it is a bit scary, but if you wear a life vest you should be just fine. Let us know how it goes!!!

I am taking a break from my home projects but I did get my 3 mile walk in today! So Yay!

Glad you got a chance to sleep in!

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!!
