I guess I run now

or I’m trying to anyway.


How nice…

to be back with hubby & dog tomorrow night, to be back to a regular work schedule, to have time to read something fun (like blogs) other than 100-year old news print, to be back to my food & exercise routine.

Terrified to step on the scale. I walked a lot during my time in IL, but my food wasn’t great. Doctor’s appointment tomorrow…we’ll see what my weight is then, when I have no choice & must step on the scale.

For now, I hit my food goal today, took a 20-min walk around campus in the morning. Back at home, I was pulling into the garage when I noticed the weeds growing between the cracks in front of the garage. So I tossed my keys on the front steps & pulled those weeds, which drew my attention to the weeds in the small front beds & while I’m at it, I hit the major garden in the middle of the front yard. 45-minutes later…& I’ve had a little bit of a workout.

After dinner I forced myself outside for a 30-minute walk, which turned into an hour-long walk. Helped that I’m sort of mentally drained today, so I got lost big time in my own neighborhood. Yay! More stars to make up for my zero stars yesterday…road tripping up from Chicago & I was beat when I got home.

Food today (good, but too much of a good thing):

Breakfast: 6 plump blackberries & a handful of blueberries
Lunch: 6 grilled asparagus, 1/3 cup tri-color orzo salad, handful of blueberries
Snack: 6 whole wheat crackers with 1 oz smoked gouda
Snack #2 (& why I didn’t just have dinner at this time is a mystery): 1 cup in-shell peanuts
Dinner: salad with crumble bleu, 4 oz flank steak, small biscuit with 1 teaspoon butter
Snack #3: beer

Hey, Hey, Hey…I’m almost back…another day or two to catch up with everyone & I’ll feel like I never left!

Hey, I have a ton of yard work if you want to earn a few more stars. Anything to help you earn a few more stars.

I appreciate the offer…really, I do. 😉 But I’m going to have to pass.

I was looking at past challenges & clearly I won last month cause the maximum number of stars earned overall wasn’t that great…We’re in the 50s for my winning month & the 60s for the other months.

So this month my goal is to earn at least as many stars as you earned the month before when you won. Win or lose, I just want 63+ stars! &, okay, it’s a little late to be deciding this now, but I’m going to give it a shot anyway!

So…no to gardening at your place, but thanks for the motivation/challenge brseay!
