Working Out Feed

Variety, please!

I went on Amazon and looked at different bands for the Fitbit Charge 2.  I wanted some different colors, especially a blue color.  Well, I found a cool set of them that has 12 bands.  It has black, purple, pink, blue, lime, and more.  There are several different blue colors, two pinks, a red, a grey, a white.  They look pretty cool. They were less than $20 for the entire set.  I wanted to do the $25 order with free shipping, so I went to my wish list and tossed in some washi that was on my wish list.  It's the Molshine brand and they make great washi.  I will get all this for $15, because I have a ten dollar gift card. Yay!

My MBP is now in Kentucky.  It still says estimated delivery on Tuesday.  I hope it gets here before, but at this point, I'm just happy to know it's really on the way!  I also ordered a Fossil wallet on ebay last week.  It's used, but it still looks nice and it was really cheap.  I got it for less than 12 shipped!  The outside is rosy pink and the inside is colorful.  It's pretty.  I'll probably post it when I get it. :p  

I walked today and it was so much cooler than it has been and it was amazing.  It was overcast for part of my walk, but sunny for the rest.  It was so nice to walk when I wasn't dying. lol  I didn't even sweat too much.  I wish it could be like this everyday I walk.  Oh well, I'm sure it will get back to normal soon!  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I did those and my French and then rested a while before having lunch.  I was hoping to get to the post office today.  My friend had said he'd come and try to fix my brakes today, but he didn't.  My other friend 'was busy' so she couldn't carry me to the post office.

Speaking of the post office, I'm SO behind on writing letters. I'm going to have to sit down tomorrow and write letters until my hand falls off. LOL  I'm so behind.   I wanted to go to the post office and get every letter there and then get all my letters caugh up at the same time.  Maybe I'll get there tomorrow.

Here is the picture of the bands:

Back on track....

Yes, today I got back on track.  I got up and took my walk, I came home and slammed my poor toe into a bookcase. It's all swollen, bruised, and bloody. OUCH!  With all that, I still did my workouts and my squats!  It was nice to be back to normal for today.  I went out tonight and my toe didn't seem to bother me in my shoes, so hopefully it will be okay for walking tomorrow.

Where did I go, you ask?  Well, I went to Walgreens. I had points collected that equaled $20!  I went and I got two frozen dinners that I like, two bags of sesame sticks, two cheese snacks, two Cokes, and a bag of cashews.  I ended up paying .45 for the whole lot!  That was fun.  I came home and fixed one of the dinners since it was time to eat dinner!

Last night after I posted, I ordered a  blue snap on cover for the Macbook Pro that I ordered.  It shipped today.  Sadly, my MBP hasn't shipped yet. :(  I was so hoping it would ship out today.  Well, at least the cover/case will be here soon. lol


Well phooey!

I keep getting weather alerts on my phone and via email, but I haven't seen or heard any thunderstorms.  It did rain a bit though.  I was hoping for a good storm.  Oh well.  My luck, it will wait until I'm ready to go to bed and it will keep me awake. lol  I got back to my regular schedule today.  I walked and did my workouts and French before lunch.  I didn't eat lunch at the regular time because my friend and I went to South Boston.  We planned to go the Goodwill, eat, and then walk.  We went to Goodwill and ate, but after that it was later than we planned so we didn't walk. I'm glad I didn't skip my walk today planning on that!

I found a cool pink Pier 14 mug rom Myrtle Beach in the Goodwill for .49!  It was one that has the little spoon on the side. It was with it and un broken.  Coolness! I also found a nice little notebook.  We ate at Dini's Brothers and it was delicious as always.  They have really good food.  I had pizza and my friend had lasagna.  I'm going to eat as much pizza and pasta and stuff as I can, because I'm seriously thinking of starting Keto.  I am not sure I can give up bread and pasta, but I know I can eat as much bacon as is physically possible. LOL!  I'm still reading up and doing research.  I can have coffee,  yes, I checked that out first thing. LOL  I was going, no coffee is not an option.  I can have it on Keto so that is good. :P  If I do it, it will be next month before I start.  I have way too many carb laden things in my house! :p

 


Oh my!

And I thought yesterday was bad.  Today was worse.  It was just way too hot out there.  It was in the 90's and the humidity was high.  It was not a good day to walk, but I did it.  I was extremely happy to get home!  I had to take off my clothes and completely change.  Everything I had on was soaked through.  So gross. :p

I relaxed and cooled off until time to do my workouts.  I did those and my French.  I was going to get my squat done, but I got distracted and didn't. I'll do them later.  Today's won't be so bad.  I finished the book I was reading last night.  It was pretty good.  Now I have to decide what to read next.  Either true crime or something else.  Who knows? I don't. :p        

At this point, I'm not sure if I'm going back out today or not.  I need to go get a case of water, but I may wait until tomorrow.  I need to check a few places that are close to see if there is any on sale.  I'm so broke that I need the cheapest price I can find.  I am also out of stamps, but I don't have the money to get any of those. :(  Phooey! I meant to get a book at the beginning of the month and then didn't.  Maybe I'll get lucky and find a ten dollar bill on tomorrow's walk! lol


UGH and it's not even summer yet!

Today's walk was HOT.  It was in the 90's today and believe me, I felt it!  I was so glad to get home to my air conditioned room!  I relaxed and cooled off as long as possible before doing today's workouts.  I got those done and my French and then relaxed before fixing lunch.  I didn't want to do my squats just then.

Later this evening, I did my squats.  I also went out and did some roadwork! At some point, some jackass parked half in the edge of my yard and it made parts of the yard go out in the street.  I went out with a shovel and got the majority of that out of the road.  I then got my hose and washed some more away.  It's made mowing at the edge a lot harder.  I wish I knew who did it so I can give them a kick in the teeth! 

I got that done and had to bury a bird. :(  I noticed a dead bird when getting the hose.  I've seen more than my fair share of dead birds lately on my walks.  Today there was one in my yard.  It's so weird!  Poor birds!

I'm pretty sure my bed linen is dry and ready to go back on the bed, but I'm being lazy and don't feel like messing with it at the moment.  I will have to do it eventually as I can't sleep tonight without linens on the bed. :p  I've felt so tired all day. I'd really like to just say phooey on it all and go to bed!  I did start on a book last night and it's good.  It is Friend Request.  I wasn't sure when I started it, but it's pretty good.  I want to read more of that.  I should re-make my bed and then put on pajamas and snuggle in my clean bed linen and read for the rest of the evening.  That sounds pretty good, actually! 


What do I know?

I don't know. lol  I guess it's Saturday since yesterday was Friday, but it's so hot lately, I don't know what day it is anymore. :P  Today's walk was soooo blooming hot.  Bleah!  One good thing about it being Saturday, there was no paving going on!  It was nice not having to deal with that!

I got home and I was dripping with sweat.  It took a while for me to cool down.  I did and then got in my workouts.  I did those, it was leg day, and then did my French lesson.  I also did my 100 squats for the day.  I usually do those later in the evening, but I decided to just get them done.  After all that, I had some lunch and then relaxed a little bit and then mowed some of the back yard.  I didn't do the whole thing because of the heat.  I was glad to get as much done as I did, though.

I had to cool off for a while again after that!  I will try to get the rest of the lawn done tomorrow.  If not, it's not that big of a deal.  It's the very back of the lawn and no one can see it unless they actually come in my yard.  I don't really want people in my yard, so that isn't a problem. LOL

I have been wanting to go to a local Japanese restaurant for a while now.  It's called Bentto and it's delicious.  I mentioned to my friend that I wanted to get Bentto for dinner, but I didn't want to risk driving my car that far.   He offered to carry me. Yay!  I ordered it on the way and it was ready when I got there.  When I go myself, I always wait until I get there and order then.  I didn't want to make my friend have to wait , so I ordered in advance.  It was delicious as always!  It was a nice change.

 


Wednesday post time!

Boy was it hot on today's walk! I swear it was a lot hotter than yesterday.  I made it home and had to cool off a while before I could do my workouts.  I got those in and my French lesson.  I need to do today's squat challenge.  After lunch, I went to the bank on a quick errand.  I didn't stay out because my car is still acting up badly.  I was able to make it there and back, so that was good.  They are re-paving the streets around the bank (and along my walking route) and it's a big mess!  I will be glad when they are done with that.  I think they might get it done quicker if everyone was working.  I'll see one or two guys actually working and five or six standing os sitting watching.  Really?  It's so annoying.  

Right now, I'm getting my blog post in so I'm not rushing later to do it.  I am also watching Homicide Hunter.  I am thinking of working on my pen pal letters tonight although I'm not sure.  As long as i get them all written by the weekend like I said before, I should be good.  I don't want to get behind again!  All the letters I got yesterday are from regular pals except one.  I got a letter from a potential new one! I sent her full friendship book back and she wants to be pals. Yay!

I'm still listening to the Oz books on my walk.  They are so good. I love these series.  I am not sure what I'm going to listen to after these are done. I'll search Librivox and see what else I can find.  I think at one time, I got Dracula on there.  I'd like to listen to that again.  They also used to have, and may still have, A Houseboat on the River Styx.  That one is excellent.  It's been a long time since I listened to or read it.  I'll have to look that up!

 


Better today

Yes, today was much better.  I got up and looked out and it was overcast but it was a little sunny.  I knew rain was in the forecast, but I was hoping it'd would be nice and not rain on me! lol  I was getting ready when my friend texted.  He asked if I'd like to go to the trail instead of my usual walk. I told him that if it would be soon, yes.  He said it would, so I said, yes.  I figured it would be a nice change.  We headed out and then decided to go to South Boston.  We went to the Goodwill we only got a few minutes in the other week.  I found a book for ten cents, a little ceramic plate from the Queen Mary, and a ZipIt brand orange pouch.  It's bright.  I won't lose it in my purse! LOL!  After we left there, we went to the pizza place we ate at before.  It was delicious again.  We knew there was a walking trail in South Boston so we looked up the directions.  It was less than a mile from where we were.  We went to it and parked.  It's a nice trail.

I took several pictures, but I'm just going to share this one.  It didn't rain on us at all while we were walking so that was nice.  It was hot and humid though.  That part wasn't great. :p  This is a nice trail.  I really enjoyed walking on it.  I definitely want to walk it again!

When I came home, I did my workouts and my French lesson.  I finished the Stephen King book last night. It was so good!  I am going to read another true crime book next.  I'm currently washing clothes.  I have to get everything ready as I'm packing tomorrow afternoon after my walk and workouts.  We leave early Monday morning. YAY!


Phooey

I am in the midst of a migraine and it's not fun.  It came out of nowhere, too.  I hate migraines.  I want it to go away so I can read more on The Outsider.  I started it last night and it's good!

I walked today and it was hot.  I was so glad to get home and get to the air conditioning!  I did my workouts at the usual time today and then my French lesson.  I was a bit late fixing lunch because I got distracted online.  I really haven't done much else today.  I did do a sink full of dishes. The majority of the dishes were coffee cups. :p

Speaking of coffee.  I bought a bag of Eight O'Clock coffee beans at the beginning of the month.  I just finished up the other bag of coffee I had and opened it.  It's so good! I'd never had this brand before, but it was on sale, they sell it whole bean, and it smelled delicious!  It was!  I like it quite well.  It's definitely a keeper.  I would like to get to Starbucks and get a bag of whole bean Pike Place roast.  I haven't been over there still! The grocery store sells Starbucks coffee, but it's ground. I want the beans.  I'm addicted to grinding my own. It makes the kitchen smell so good!

Yes, this is a short post, but like I said, I have a migraine and I really need to relax a bit before getting the Kindle out to read more of the new Stephen King book.  


What a day!

I got in my regular walk today and it was hot.  I was sweating like crazy when I got home.  I cooled down and then decided to mow the lawn!  I was dripping with sweat when I was done with that.  I only did the front and part of the back.  I was glad to have it done.  I had to cool off again and I didn't do my workouts right then!  I did relax and do my French lesson and then it was time to fix lunch.

After lunch, I relaxed a while.  I thought my friend and I would walk, but we didn't.  I sort of wanted to, but at the same time I didn't since I'd done so much earlier.  I finished the true crime book I was reading and went to the library website hoping to find The Outsider.  It's the new novel by Stephen King.  They actually had it and it was available to borrow as an ebook. YES!  I am going to start it tonight.  

When I came here tonight, my blog was missing!  I thought maybe Typepad was having issues.  I checked, and no.  So then I went to the blog via Typepad and there it was.  My domain had expired and I didn't realize it!  I went and renewed it and it took a few minutes for it to show back up.  If you visited today and couldn't find the blog via the domain name, forgive me!  I'm glad it's back.

I mailed my huge stack of mail on my walk.  I had all my letters plus I had two friendship books I was returning to people.  Hopefully they'll both become new pen pals. ^_^  That would be nice.  I also finally did my workouts.  I am going to finish up this post and get into that book!
