EXERCISE Week, April 21 - 27
1 Attachment(s)
Been in a rush today, the realtor called and the "house peepers" have made an offer, so we meet with him tomorrow to see what it is and whether to counter or not...........stress!!

Let's do it all again this week, Friends!!! :up:

Shalbrihil 04-20-2013 09:22 PM

Oh my good luck on that offer.

Looks like Tahoe? I sure miss that place. We use to stay in a cabin in South Shore for a week each year during Oktober Fest. Apple Hill was going strong and we always stopped there going through Placerville. Fun times!

Starting the old walks once again in the morning. Going to try to keep the new distance going.

DebbyL 04-21-2013 07:48 AM

Thanks for the welcome :D
Fancy meeting you here Sharon ;)
:aprayer: Hope your house-transactions go smoothly & profitably for you Sharon!

Shalbrihil 04-21-2013 08:18 AM

:jumpjoy: The skylight is in and I just love it. No more dark hallway!

Shalbrihil 04-21-2013 08:19 AM

Getting some walking at our farmer's market and then a stop at the lake for the extended walk with the fur kids.

Loretta V 04-21-2013 05:05 PM

Nothing today, back at it tomorrow.

mykneesareback 04-21-2013 05:46 PM

That does look like Lake Tahoe, Sharon, but it's alot smaller, Crystal Lake, up towards Mt. Hough, which is what our house faces, there is an awful rough, dirt road that goes up there, to a fire tower where a forest service person lives in the summer. We honeymooned at Lake Tahoe, but lived in San Jose at the time, now, we are close enough to go there for lunch and a ride around the lake, and then back home.........of course, after we move, that will be it for that. Apple Hill is still going strong, very nice, we used to buy boxes of apples there for all the relatives.

Did 2 hrs. on the bike this morning, and 8 lb. weights just now, that is it for me today, anxious tired is what I am.

Tomorrow won't be much, early rising to head down to Roseville for dh's blood tests, it's supposed to be 86 degrees down there, but thats 3 hrs. away.

DebbyL 04-21-2013 10:17 PM

Awesome worship & fellowship at church today. Then our son's family came over for dinner & supper. We had a good day.DH took the kiddo's to the farm next door. They love going there to pet the baby lambs, goats, horses, ducks & chickens. laugh Pretty cute pics... best smiles when they're doing that.

DIL & I got my walk in, which was great. I sometimes miss my walk when they come over. They just left at 8 pm. Whew! Long day, but good. I hope I was able to encourage her... she's suffering pms today. :sad:

Hope you all had a good one! :hiya:

Loretta V 04-22-2013 07:33 AM

Hey Debbyl I recognize you from the Maintain Lane. Glad to have you join in here.

Got an early walk in today. No workout.

DebbyL 04-22-2013 05:20 PM

:hiya: Hi Loretta!

Well, today I did my usual jogging around at work, then went shopping probably walked for 2 hrs. (sometimes I just can't stop)!

Hope y'all had a good one! ;)

mykneesareback 04-22-2013 06:43 PM

Rode in the car 6 hrs., walked all over Wal Mart, that's it for today.

Back to the bike tomorrow. Feels sort of good to not be on the bike, lol, too much yakking today.

Shalbrihil 04-22-2013 09:36 PM

I took a rest as well Doris. I did do the usual walking but could tell that was going to be it for today.

SuSUN 04-23-2013 04:44 PM

1 hr walk in the woods with DD and both dogs today.

mykneesareback 04-23-2013 05:53 PM

Susan, I hope your DD has better luck at house hunting :)

I managed 1 1/2 hrs. on the bike, the rest of the time was on the phone with 3 different people, who did try to work something out, but it didn't pan out.
My son and dil are so sad, they even offered to buy the house and sell it back to us, but we can't have that kind of thing going on, too unsure with our stuff here. If crying is exercise, I got more than my share in today. I know you guys understand, I'll try to let the subject drop. :sad:

Shalbrihil 04-23-2013 06:55 PM

I was able to get a 30 min. walk in this evening. Feel better that I did. :)

DebbyL 04-23-2013 07:18 PM

Had a bad day, only got 15 minutes of elliptical today.

Loretta V 04-24-2013 01:05 PM

Exercise workout upper and lower body 30 min.
Counter push ups.
Too rainy for walk.

mykneesareback 04-24-2013 01:55 PM

3 1/2 hrs. exercise bike, and that's it.

SuSUN 04-24-2013 03:39 PM

1 hr Walk and bit of a climb in the woods on the trail with DD and her dog.

5lb arm and shoulder weights routine

mykneesareback 04-24-2013 07:07 PM

I got in the Jack LaLanne chair exercises, too anxious to settle down......:)

Tomorrow, we have to drive back down for more blood tests for dh, the doctor is worried about his numbers, and needs to make sure there is no infection or something going on............so, another 6 hrs. sitting in the car. :annoyed:

Shalbrihil 04-24-2013 07:10 PM

Had a quiet reading day today. The book was too good to put down. :D

DebbyL 04-24-2013 08:16 PM

Hi there,

Feeling somewhat better, was able to do 30 minutes elliptical, moderately.

Hope your tests go well Doris :console: good job on the bicycling!

Nice to have a good book-reading day Sharon. :)

Good for you Susan getting people-time & vitamin D & exercise all in one! :jumpjoy:

Loretta what do you use for your work-out? Sounds like a gym? :confused: Good for you :)

Have a good sleep y'all. I'm really hoping :aprayer: to be able to sleep tonight too.

Shalbrihil 04-24-2013 08:49 PM

Hi Debby. Is your snow starting to melt now so you and Dh can take a little bike trip?

DebbyL 04-24-2013 08:57 PM

Yes it is Sharon, Some spots left, but mostly melted now. Starting to get green tinges in the grass too.

We have planned our trip, will be leaving the last week of May. :newbie:

Loretta V 04-25-2013 12:23 PM

No gym Debby outside walk and an old Jane Fonda tape.
I have added some counter top push ups, squats and leg lifts.

Got the walk and workout done today.

mykneesareback 04-25-2013 03:01 PM

Only marched around Wal Mart, dh pushed the cart and I led him around like a lamb................;) He is napping now, after that long drive and lots of traffic today, for some reason.

DebbyL 04-25-2013 06:36 PM

Very little exercise today. I'm too sad. :sad: Hopefully I will pull through this mourning soon.

SuSUN 04-25-2013 06:47 PM

Oh Debby, I am sorry you are feeling sad. Who did you lose? Many of us here have lost our DH's recently, some have lost children, in-laws and parents. WE all feel free to share our feelings here. Sending big hugs dear friend. :hugs::hugs::hugs:

SuSUN 04-25-2013 06:48 PM

Only 2 short walks with my dog today. Took my car in to have the snow tires taken off.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 11:09 PM.
