Like any "regular" leisure vacation, my morning found me in my bathrobe sipping tea, enjoying watching everyone else go to work! LOL!! Most the morning was spent paying bills, running errands (I did change out of my bathrobe for those!) and that kind of "fun" stuff. It's been stormy, windy, rainy, so it was easy to just putter. Jackson and I did find a break in the rain and got in our daily walk:
I love to walk. I was athletic when I was young and now find so much solitute and rejuvination in walking. I'm using afternoons during my break right now to build my walking milage back up to my, before surgery, daily three miles. I downloaded a new app on my phone called: Map by Walk. My main goal is to use it to map out all my different routes so I know how far they are. (I mayyyyy be guilty of saying a walk is three miles, when in reality it was only two!)
I was impressed to see I'm keeping about a 14:39 minute mile pace. I'm not a big gadget gal, so can anticipate that I'll probably delete the app once I have all my routes mapped out. Yet, with that said, I do recommend this app if you are looking for something to help you track your activities, calories, ect. I just want to know how far I'm walking.
My balanced healthy life philosphy comes down to these BIG 5: First, you are what ya eat. (Darn it!...never the less, that doesn't stop me from enjoying a good cupcake every now and then and that glass of red wine at the end of the day.) Second, I drink plenty of water every day. Third, I get in my 10,000 steps a day...ya gotta keep your butt moving! Fourth, I get plenty of sleep. (I need my eight hours a night!) Fifth, it all comes down to your attitude. (Make the best of what ya got and have a hobby you enjoy is what I say!) All that be said, a bathing suit is STILL not a staple item in my wardrobe! LOL!
Anyhoo, our walk for the day is done and I find myself waiting for the "tile guy" to come prep for our new bathroom floor, (I think my husband forgot he's NOT on Spring Break as he started remodeling our main bathroom):
I'm going to make some yo-yo flowers for the center of my rainbow pinwheels.
They'll look something like this when I'm done: (Cute huh!) I'm aiming to finally have this quilt completed for a Friday Finish this week.
Again, thanks for stopping by and keeping me company on my little stay-cation here.
