Yeah, I almost forgot to post to my blog today. Sorry, it’s just been one of those days. I left for my walk today and my friend was outside with Cocoa, her mini Doxie. I adore Cocoa and don’t get to see her enough, so I stopped! I got to love on my little Cocoa for quite a while. I also got to see my favorite German Shepard, Daisy! I decided to just skip my walk and came back home. I’ve been a lazy slug all day. I’ve played bingo on the iPad and watched The Addam’s Family. Lol
Well, just a little. I have four different bingo apps on my iPad mini. lol . I started with Bingo Bash on my iPod touch a long time ago. I found that they had the version for the iPad and I started playing it again. I had also tried Bingo Blitz some time back because an in app thing in another app . (You download the app and play to a certain level and then get stuff in the other app.) . So, I played both of these on my iPad and liked them. I wanted another to try since I played so much I ran out of the 'tokens' to play! lol
I now have Monopoly Bingo which is really fun. I love Monopoly and I love bingo so it was a good choice. I also have Bingo Win. They are all pretty fun! I will probably try a few more before it's all over. Each app had it's good points and bad points. I love the bigger screen for playing too. When I played on the iPod touch, I could play four cards at a time, but I had to scroll. On the iPad, I can see all four at once. It's easier to play more cards at once.
So, I walked today and I came home and instead of doing my workouts, I went on a few errands. I came back here and then took gifts to my friend's house. I stayed for a little bit and then headed back here. I played a lot of Pocket Camp. :p I just now finished my workouts. I have my bed linen washed and back on the bed. I've done my French lesson. I just need to wash my hair and I'm totally done with my to do list for the day.
I got myself a few $1 items and wrapped them up and put them under my tree. I got a puzzle, a box of candy canes, and a cute pen. I wanted to have something under there. It's not much, but there you go! I really don't have a lot to say tonight as you can tell. It's been a long day and it's only a few minutes after 9!
Especially when I don't post! Yeah, I got a week behind again. I meant to post to this blog everyday when I got it. I found out something interesting when I'm not visiting it or posting. It gets no hits. So, yeah, no one actually reads my blog. :( Hopefully I can change that. I actually had readers when I was at Wordpress. I don't want to move back there, but at least people were reading my blog posts!
Today was the first of August. I got in a good walk today even though it was really hot out there. I came in and did the day's workouts. I didn't get Saturday's or Sunday's workouts done then. I did them today. I wanted August to get off to a good start. I'm all caught up on my workouts. I'm tired, but satisfied. I needed to get that done. It made me feel good.
Yes, I'm still playing Pokemon Go. I actually played today while walking. It makes my walk fun. I actually caught several and hatched four 2K eggs. I wanted to get all the 2K ones hatched. All I have now are 5K ones. I also leveled up today to Level 18! Yay! :) It's so much fun. I have hatched a few 10K eggs. One was a Eevee and one was a Snorlax. I know there were one or two more, but I can't remember what they were. I have all three Eevee evolutions, too. :)
Anyway, I guess I'll close. I hope to post more often. Hopefully someone will start reading the posts!
I got in my walk today and it was a little bit cooler. Not much, but enough to help. I actually slept until my silent alarm on my Fitbit went off. I went on my walk about an hour earlier than my usual time. I came home and took my time doing my workouts. I was able to take a few minutes between them. That was nice. I like having the time to relax a bit and not be in a rush. Sometimes the internet is spotty and the videos don't want to load. I did that a few times today, but I had the extra time, so I didn't mind.
I got those done. It was core and cardio day. OUCH! I ate lunch and then got my things together for Starbucks. I relaxed a little while and then headed over there. I was able to get my favorite chair immediately. I had six letters to write and I got them all done. I was looking forward to playing Pokemon Go while there too, but the servers were down for most of my visit. They didn't come up until near the end. I ended up staying a bit longer than I planned. I almost forgot that I needed to go pick up my prescription at Kmart. I would have walked there on one of my walks, but they are doing road construction in front of it and it's a mess. I didn't want to get run over!
I got my prescription and headed home. I posted to Letters and Lattes and then came here to post. Now, I'm going to relax for a while before getting in bed and relaxing for the night. I am hoping to get some reading done tonight.
I am still not sleeping all the way through the night. I am sleeping a bit later each day, so hopefully I'll be back to normal soon! I have been going on my walk earlier than usual too. It's just as hot earlier as it is later. I really should go later in the evening. The heat is killing me! Today I couldn't wait to get home to my room and air conditioning. When I got here, I had to sit down and cool off awhile before doing my workouts. With me going on my walks earlier, it gives me more time to do my workouts and not be in a hurry. I get them done and then I can relax a few minutes before eating lunch.
So, on today's walk, I found quite a few new Pokemon. I also found several of the ones I had. I got enough Eevee candy to evolve one of my Eevees too! :) I love finding 'new' ones. I was in the process of capturing one Eevee today when I got this screenshot:
It was too cute not to share! Here are my top Pokemon at the moment. I'm leveling up slower than I would like, but I'm getting there!
Last night, I drove to the park to pick up some 'supplies' at the Pokestops there. Someone had set a lure at one of the stops, so I sat there for about 10 minutes catching. That was fun. I was just going to go through, grab some stuff and go home, but I saw the lure and thought, why not? I noticed a lot of other people walking around the park.
I love seeing people out and about playing the game. It's so cool that is getting people out of their houses and active. One of my friends is a total couch potato/room dweller and I've gotten him out twice to go on the hunt. :) I use my daily walk as an opportunity to catch and to hatch! :P
This is day three of waking up way too early! Each day this happens, I have just gotten up and gone on a earlier walk. It's a little bit cooler, but not too much. Today, I used Pokemon Go during the walk. I used it for most of the walk. My battery was at 22% when I got home. LOL! It's okay, I charged it while doing my workouts and relaxing. I was able to hatch several eggs and picked up some 'new' Pokemon along with some extra of others. I also tried to hit all the Pokestops along my walk. It was fun! I have gotten where walking was a chore. I do it because I want to continue to be fit, but it's such a pain sometimes. Playing Pokemon Go while I walk makes it more fun. I don't want to skip a walk. I want to go and play! :)
I am hoping to get back to my regular sleep schedule. I'm going to try to go out and walk earlier. My normal routine is to get up, check out things on my phone for a while, get up, eat, and watch a couple of episodes of Judge Judy and then head out for my walk. I may just get up, relax a bit and then eat and go. This way I will get done in time to do my workouts before lunch. I also won't have to worry about hurrying if I feel like I'm getting behind. It will give me extra time. This is important as it's so darn hot! Hopefully I will sleep right through tonight and not wake up until the silent alarm on my Fitbit goes off! Wish me luck.
I've been playing Pokemon Go. I only started on the 12th. I'm only at level 7. I wasn't into Pokemon back in the day. I never watched the show or played any of the games. This is pretty fun. Here is my avatar:
As you can see, I'm #TeamMystic #PokemonGo
I use a downloadable version of #PassionPlanner for my pen pal planner. I put it in my A5 purple planner. That is it in the first picture on the right of this blog. I carry it when I do my weekly letters. I keep track of everything. I have it color coded. Example:
Pink: Received letter
Blue: Wrote letter
Purple: Mailed letter
Other colors for other stuff. I also keep track of how many letters I get a day. Since it was slow week, I took a picture of a week when there was actually some activity:
I also have my pen roll that I carry all my highlighters in and many different pens to choose from when writing:
