day 183 (day 1 / week 27)

Man these past few weeks have flown by quickly. I am really glad that I have taken advantage of this time at home to exercise and get healthy again. Such a blessing! This must be what God wants for me right now, because He has made it really easy for me to do this (in regards to time and such).

Today they were predicting for rain. They are usually wrong here but sure enough, it did! I woke up early and wanted to be out of the house early to beat the heat, but when I saw that it was overcast I relaxed a little and checked the weather report. Scattered showers throughout the day and T-Storms later in the evening--the high only being 98! Woo hoo!

I opened the door and went outside to use my sniffer to see if I smelled rain (Your nose knows, ya know?) and nada. Went in, packed the stroller, got ready and it sure enough... it started sprinkling. I dilly dallied a little (when it sprinkles it doesn't last long usually) and about 10 minutes later, it stopped. I got the Monkey Boy up, put him in the stroller and started walking. I walked a different route, because I was trying to stay away from the dark sky. If I had gone my normal route, I probably would have been rained on, but I was fine.

I only walked 3.3 miles (felt longer) and did it in 62 minutes. My HR monitor said that I burned 903 calories and stayed in my zone for 38 minutes (133-157). I also started to do "Ab Sculpt" from The Firm series that I have, but got 15 mins into it, before the distractions started, so I gave up for the day. The video is GOOD though. I could feel my ab muscles almost immediately after starting this video.

I took some more pretty pictures too...of the walk, not me exercising--that's not pretty, let me tell you! lol.

Today I did the other 1/2 (more like 1/4) of the city block, that I usually don't do, so I thought I would do something fun today, and show you on the map, where I took the pictures. Fun, right? They are numbered and so are the pictures below :).


1) When I walk the full city block (or this 1/4 of the block) I pass this funny tree. It grows these pink feather looking flowers! So pretty. They were a little wilted here, but still pretty. Wasn't able to get a pic of the full tree because my phone's camera isn't good enough. It looks really neat with all of these pink feathers in it.


2) This is the park that has the water spouts that I take my son to. It's only about a mile away, so it's an easy walk.

3) You can see in this picture how overcast it is here today. The #3 is a little off on the map (my bad--it starts almost right after #2) but here is a picture of the little "trail" (pssht) that I get to walk on, when I go this way. It's not directly next to the street, so that's a good thing and nice, but stops, which stinks because there are CRAZY drivers on Flamingo (lots of accidents). Where the #3 is on the map, is where the trail ends unfortunately lol. Back to the sidewalk for me! (this is the reason why I don't like to walk all the way down Flamingo to Rainbow--CRAZY drivers and lots of accidents on this road).


4) Right as I was turning onto the street to get to my neighborhood, I saw this HUGE sunflower peeking up over this wall and so I took a picture of it...I got that person's backyard in the picture too lol (thank goodness there were no sunbathers present!).


I hope you all have a great weekend, for those of you that have a long one :). If you're going to be outside, make it count and skip around! Sounds funny, but it's great exercise and so fun! Especially if you are around kids! They will wonder what the heck you are doing and probably join in (if they are the cool kind of kid--none of that, "Mom! You're embarrassing me!" junk lol).

I dare you. *wink*

I can do this. I am a star.

A "dare" huh? Hmm, I'll let you know. I started walking my dog, Daisy, at 6 a.m. this week when it's cool here, in Oklahoma. I just might have to skip; she's a cool dog and won't think I'm embarrassing her! Thanks for the fun map and pics. It's neat to see the flowers and changes to surroundings when walking outside as opposed to the same people in the same clothes on the dvd's. hee hee That's okay though, they keep me from feeling too bad for wearing the same couple of workout frocks!

Hugged and cuddled Valiant at an intersection today...he tried to stay cool, but failed miserably.
