A Little of This; A Little of That
We're back and I Yam SORE!
Wow! Whoulda thunk that after all the walking I do, walking down a lil bitty mountain would cause as much pain in my calves as I have! Sheesh! I'm walking like Lurch!
They started hurting yesterday morning; pretty bad today. Long as I'm walking (after the first few minutes) I'm o.k. Sit for any length of time and yowza!!!
What that tells me is, not that I need to do MORE necessarily, just to get up in the local hills because, when we go up there next month, I want to do it again!
Actually, I thought my shins would be hurting, not my calves. Guess it's because of the steepness of the mountain. Nothing here that steep. Was a nice ride up on the chair lift.
Seems I've got time tomorrow morning, so, off I go!
Wonder-filled couple of days we had. The weather could not have been better. Warm days, cool nights. We stayed directly across the street from the lake so we could set up our chairs right there AT the lake or in front of the cabin.
We found a place where we both could eat ~ me, my BIG salad; Him, we wont talk about. I think I had 4 or 5 of them.
What's weird is that the two times we've been up there, there's been a major incident closing the road going down.
Last time it was a HUGE fire and we got to see the helicopters drop down to the lake and pick up water. He's got a couple of YouTube vids on it.
This time, the road out was closed because a fella drove his car off the side ~ 300' down ~ and died. They had to helicopter him out.
On Monday night (felt VERY strange having a Monday night off because that's usually my night for Let's Talk Raw and then a movement class I've been going to for over 23 years) we went to see Inglorious Basterds. Glad we went. He didn't want to go; I did. Well, we did. He laughed and talked about it until we fell asleep. Quite good. I want to see it again because I'm sure there are nuances we missed.
Today, we're dealing with breathing smoke from a nearby forest fire. Pretty intense. Not going out in that today. Already getting a headache and sore throat from it.
Oh! I've put up new information about "Tap Into Your Ideal Weight" in case you're sitting on the fence. We're beginning again next week and still have room. Love to have you if you, or someone you know is "struggling" with your food program or your weight.
