2 days in a row

I have managed to drag myself out of bed and hit the road two mornings in a row.  Tomorrow won't make 3 because I have to drag myself out of bed and go to work.

Some pics from my mornings - just flowers, but there isn't that much to photo in my neighborhood.  Oh and I wasn't take walk breaks ..... I was "documenting my experience"  LOL

even the morning glories were not up yet!

Weekend Wrap Up

Every muscle from my waist up is sore sore sore.  I feel like I did a lot of heavy lifting, but I really only worked.

Unlike the rest of the world, I love Mondays.  I need the rest!  This is the second weekend in a row too - so I'm really feeling it.  Really, it's not a bad thing.  Just lets me know that I got my workout in when I was too busy to workout!  My apron weighs 10lbs so I'm starting out with the equivalent of a weight vest.  Then I have a pump to carry around and my scrapbooking case with extra balloons that I drag with me.  We walked about 3 miles with all of this - but that gets my legs which were not tired.  It's the moving the pump up and down and the constant having my arms in motion.  It's low impact, but it's steady.  I always equate it to fishing while standing or sitting - depending on what I do.  Between that and the walking I burned about 3000 calories Friday evening.  Saturday & Sunday were slower, but I still worked some, so today is my rest day.

We worked Riverfest on Friday.  6 hours of balloon twisting and then fireworks.

I even got a few photos  Taken with the camera on my phone, so not too bad.

I don't think I posted photos of what we did last week!  I have been a bad bad blogger for almost 2 weeks!  Finished my milk fast and then vanished.  Shame on me.

Last week was Maker Faire - an amazing event.  Good for the calorie burning too.  Almost 7000 calories out from work during the weekend.  Bragging about my calorie output isn't why I'm a bad blogger.  I didn't share this with you.

The Marshmallow man is mine (ghostbuster was a happy happenstance) The whole sculpture stands about 10ft tall.  Something we should have thought about since we are all very short people!  LOL  It was a blast seeing everyone reactions.

Only downside to the past two weekend has been being too tired to cook.  I need to get better at planning ahead.  I ate badly - not over my calories, but not goo healthy food.  I feel the consequences!  Started getting back on track yesterday and will continue.  I don't' want to tempt the gout fairy!!  That's a visit I do not need in my life!!

Best part is I have several more super busy, high calorie burning, fun weekends coming up!  As long as I eat right I'll be feeling great by the end of the summer!
