Long day!

Good grief! It has been a really long day!  Last night I bought some room darkening blinds.  I put them up and then noticed when I got up today that they didn't really block that much light.  I didn't see keeping them, so after  breakfast, I headed out and returned them.  I put the old ones back up.  

After that, I went to Office Max to look at the Tul notebooks.  I know some people use them for bullet journaling.  I didn't really care for them, but I did find a cute little plastic envelope that was teal and had polka dots.  I got that and then headed out.  After leaving there, I went to the park for a bit to hit a few Pokestops.  I then headed home.  I did my stretches and then went to a friend's house.  I ended up going with them to pick up pizza.  I ate too much pizza!  I also rode with them later to Gamestop and then to Starbucks.  Yes, I got a Cascara latte. :P  I stayed at their house a bit after we got back and then I headed home.  I have been working at my desk ever since..... Oh wait!  I did run back out in my own car to Taco bell and got some bean burritos.  

I am now ready to get in my bed and relax until bedtime.  I still have to take a picture for Insta for the #stretchrevolution project I'm doing.  I'll get that picture taken and then crash on my bed to post to Insta.  Then I'm just going to relax.  I way over ate today and I'm feeling it. BLEAH!

Yeah boi!

I am posting to my blog again.  I hope to keep up this daily blogging.  Today has been pretty good so far.  I did my workouts.  It was leg day and then I did the pose for the #stretchrevolution.  I really did not think I would be able to do the pose, but I did! :D  I was so proud of myself.  It was not easy, but I did it.  I actually got a decent picture too.  Yay!  Doing the picture challenges is always a challenge for me because I have to take them myself.  I've learned the easiest thing to do is to make a video on my cell phone and then use a video editor to take a snap of the portion I need.  Works great!  

As I was fixing my lunch, a friend texted that he was bringing me a burger.  I haven't had one in a while, so that was a nice treat.  I was going to save it for dinner, but it disappeared before I could.  Oops.  Yeah, I ate it! LOL!  It's okay though.  It fits in my calories for the day.  It was a nice surprise.  Yum!


Monday, Monday....

I got in my walk today.  It wasn't too hot, so that was nice.  It still was too hot to be walking. I did it anyway!  I came home and did all but one of my workouts.  I ate lunch and did one more.  I would have gotten out the weed eater and gotten some more done, but the cord won't go any further than it did yesterday.  Phooey!  Oh well.  A friend said she'd come down and get that part with her riding lawn mower.  She didn't make it today, though.  Hopefully tomorrow. 

I did give my bathroom a good cleaning.  It looks so much better!  I scrubbed everything.  I changed the rug and swept the floor.  I should have mopped, but I never got around to it.  It looks great in there.  I've been needing to do it for a while now.  

I hadn't posted my last four days workouts to Insta.  I finally did that today.  I did Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and today's. I just never post them.  I did that in a single post today.  I also posted a few pictures of other stuff.  I really need to post more things to Insta than just my workouts!  It's mainly a fitness account though.  Most of my followers are fellow Popsters. :)

I didn't get any mail today.  That was disappointing.  I only have two letters for Wednesday.  Hopefully I'll get a few more between now and then.  I feel like everyone has stopped writing.  I think I'm just impatient and want letters NOW! lol   Hopefully some letters will come soon.  I'd love to get a few new pals, too.  It seems like every time I get a new pal, it's an inmate. I don't mind writing inmates, it's just that we usually don't have a lot in common!  They do write a lot faster than everyone else though.  Oh well, I guess I'll close this post.  I think I'm going to one of my pen pal sites and see if anyone interesting has been added recently. 

Well, there I go again!

Today, I got in my walk.  It was in the 60's and it was NICE out there!!!  A friend was coming over to work on my car, but he didn't get here until after my walk.  I came home and did four of my five workouts.  I ate lunch and then went out to see how he was doing.  He did a few things on the car and then got it running.  I asked if he'd consider driving it for a bit and I could drop off some of my piles of recycling I've been needing to recycle.  The last time I got to the recycle center was July!  I took a LOT of bags today.  As many as the car would hold.  I still quite a few bags left, but at least a lot of them are taken care of.  

Hopefully I'll be able to get my car going again tomorrow. The car had been overheating and that is why I stopped driving it last year.  He did a few things on it and I don't know what he did, but it didn't overheat once while we were out driving it around.  He actually drove around a bit too.  He even went through a drive thru and it didn't overheat.  I'm hoping that the battery is still good.  We tried to charge it up a lot today.  If if cranks tomorrow, I might try to drive it for a bit.  I hope he fixed whatever the problem was.  It would be SO NICE to be able to drive again!

I'm a bit behind on everything today.  I did my last workout after he left and got in my picture for the challenge I'm doing on Insta.  Now, I'm sitting at the computer typing this and catching up on all things interwebs. :p  I got two new penpal letters today, too! :)  I need to take tomorrow evening to catch up on writing some letters. I need to eat some dinner, wash my hair, and post my pictures to Insta.  I'm all off schedule. HALP!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

Go me!

Today was the first day I had any food that wasn't fixed at home in over a month!  I pledged to myself to not eat fast food for the entire month of January.  Part way through, I changed it to not eating out at all during January.  I made it! :D  It was hard several times when a friend offered to take me out.  Last night, the very last night of my imposed food hiatus, my friend asked if I wanted anything from one of my favorite fast food places.  I said no, but I'd like to ride with him to get whatever he wanted.  Riding in a car is a novelty since my car has been broken down for so long! :P So, I rode with him and he went to TWO of my favorite places.  I still did not give in.  I stayed strong.  He must have felt sorry for me because he offered to pick me up something today.  I immediately said yes! :)  

I had a chicken tender combo from Hardee's.  So good.  The first food I've eaten away from home in over a month.  I was so proud of myself for making it a whole month without eating out. Now, I am not going right back to eating out.  I might do it once or every other week.  When I do eat out, unless it's a cheat meal, I usually get something that works into my daily calorie count.  I'm so looking forward to a cheat meal. I didn't have one in January.  I  usually have one cheat meal a week.  I already know what I want. Pepperoni pizza.  *drools*

The first day of February was good for my fitness, also.  I got in my walk, I came home and did my workouts.  I am also participating in two challenges on Instagram.  If you want to see any of that, check me out on Insta. (anndroidgirl) Now I'm going to relax for a bit and then get ready for bed. I received two new letters from potential pen pals today!  I might write them back tonight and I might wait until tomorrow.  I haven't decided yet.  We'll see!  

No rain, but warm...

It was so warm on today's walk.  It is usually pretty cold this time of year.  It was 74 out there today!  I walked, as usual.  It was weird because there were very few people out.  Most everything was closed too.  I didn't mind not passing anyone.  It was a nice change.  I like to listen to audiobooks and it seems people always want to talk to me.  I don't know why they don't understand that headphones on mean "don't talk to me!" UGH!

I came home and did my stretches.  It was relax day on the workout calendar.  I went to a friend's house for Christmas dinner.  I didn't eat lunch because they were supposed to eat by 5 at the latest.  It was much later than that and I was starving!  I may have over eaten, but it was good.  I had green beans, peas, macaroni and cheese, corn pudding, chicken casserole, deviled eggs, and ham.  Lots, and lots of ham.  It was delicious.  Since I ate so much and so late, I won't eat again.  If I get hungry before bed, I'll just drink some chocolate milk. :)

I'm sitting in front of my Yule tree listening to WCPE.  It's the 'local' classical station, but you can find it all over the world at  I love this station. I need to post to Insta and then I'm retiring from the interwebs for the night.


I didn't post the last two days.  I haven't really done anything new.  Just walking, workouts, walking, workouts, walking... you get the idea!  It turned a bit cold here.  It had been so nice, and then the last three days has been cold.  At least yesterday and today was sunny.  No rain.  Yay! I retired my Nike shoes today.  I bought them in May of this year and I've worn them for my daily walks ever since.  They have worn almost completely out on the bottom.  I posted a picture of them to Insta.  I also posted my new shoes.  

I found a pair of Ryka shoes back in June.  I have never seen or heard of them before I saw them in the shoe store at the beach. They look so nice and they are COMFY!  I can't wait to try them out on tomorrow's walk.  I'll try to remember to post tomorrow a review of how I liked them. If you don't follow me on Instagram but want to see what I post, look to the right.  I have a link to my Instagram and I also have a widget showing my latest posts.


I got in my walk today and then came home and did all my workouts.  I also did the 24th day of the #goodvibeschallenge that Cassey from @Blogilates has going on.  I had to plank with a friend.  Since I'm alone at the moment and I live alone, I had to improvise.  I took the picture myself with my Macbook in photo booth.  I have a stuffed Jake the dog that I used as my friend.  I thought that would be pretty cool.  I'll have to post a picture of my ever growing Adventure Time collection soon.  That Jake is one of four! Here is the collage I made for Insta. 


Not the best quality, but it usually isn't when you have to take the pictures yourself. :P
