When I started this blog in 2014 I had big plans to lose the weight that corresponded to the weight of my new puppy...as she grew so would my loss. Turns out it didn't work quite like that. Four plus years later I weigh more than ever and my puppy is potentially facing surgery for an ACL injury. Here I am trying again, expanding the focus of the blog and keeping the name. Hope you will continue on the adventure with me.
Good morning! I wanted to share a couple pictures from yesterday before I get to today. When I got home from work I realized I forgot my cell phone at work. So after dinner my husband and I drove to get it. I am glad I we went to get it when we did. Got to see some incredible clouds as a storm rolled in. Hopefully you can tell from the angle that I am not driving. I am sticking my camera out the window and holding it above the roof snapping pics like a fool. It was so pretty with the light and dark clouds.
On the way home we drove straight through the rain. It was a torrential downpour. I was so thankful that my husband was driving. The rain stopped and we were almost home when I asked my husband to pull over so I could get a shot of this. It is not often I see the whole rainbow. I don't think I've ever taken a picture of one.
On to this morning. It has already been a busy day. We got up at 5 a.m. because my husband was meeting his friend, his friend's son and our nephew to go golfing. Of course, we had to get a workout in first. I walked two miles 16:15 & 15:30 - not particularly fast but I was okay with it. I thought about going three miles but decided to head home so I could get my husband breakfast before he headed out the door.
This weekend is turning out to be the weekend of the sky. Check out this picture from this morning. Another reason I love my morning walks.
Maybe I would walk faster if I left my camera at home. I can't resist reflections...
Practicing selfies for my next race. The one I took during the 10K was horrendous. This is a little better.
With my husband gone and my walk finished, I decided to get to work. The flowerbeds (iris, daylilies, hostas) have become desperately overgrown. I don't know how it gets away from me so fast. Not to mention all this morning exercise has really cut into my morning productivity. I think it will be worth it in the end. I spent an hour and a half weeding like a madwoman. That has to be worth at least 18 zillion calories, right?? That should come in handy tomorrow when I am having a piece of chocolate birthday cake.
I just wanted to get it over with as soon as possible. I didn't do the best job, but it is definitely an improvement.
The "what am I going to do with it now?" pile.
Did I mention my husband went golfing?? Seriously, I am happy he went. In the summer his work is pretty strenuous and he doesn't get near enough time hanging out with his friends. On an unrelated note - he is looking so good!!! Down 30 pounds :) He has been doing great on calories (cut out fast food) and working out like crazy. Kicking the soda habit has been a big help too,
I better get myself out of this chair and moving again before all my muscles tighten up. Tomorrow is the birthday party for my sister and niece. We are making the cake (pictures tomorrow) and I have a little shopping to finish up. Happy Saturday!!
